Hello!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I saw a lovely thing today whilst at school. Children were outside during first break with their books reading together, apparently they have set up their own little bookclub and it was just wonderful to see a group of children enjoying reading together and talking about what they were reading.

What I am Currently Reading

I am only 15 pages into this so far as I started it during my lunch break at school today.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I must admit I didn’t really enjoy Who Killed Jerusalem? that much. It was one of those books that felt too much like hard work. Here is the review. I just finished The Greek Myths by Richard Buxton and I absolutely loved it! Review will follow shortly.

What I Think I will Read Next

I think I will definitely read Meditations by Marcus Aurelius in February as that is my next ancient text I want to read but I’m not sure what other books I will read In February.

Please drop me a comment with your WWW Wednesday and I will head over for a visit.

I have been really enjoying The Greek Myths by Richard Buxton and I have been really enjoying it. I am still reading a chapter a day of The Count of Monte Cristo.

Hello!

I hope everyone is well. Reading hasn’t been going quite so well this week, I’ve still managed some reading everyday but not as much as I would like.

What I am Currently Reading

The more I read this book the more bizarre it gets. I like how the author has used creations by William Blake within this book but at the same time it is just to strange and I really don’t like the main character.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I throughly enjoyed this book and it was great to get back into reading my classics again. Here is the review if you are interested.

What I Think I will Read Next

I have so many books I want to read this year and because of this I plan to be a lot more restrained with my book buying.

Hello!

I hope everyone has had a good weekend so far. I am feeling rather good about 2023 so far. Blogging and reading is going well and I up to date on all my book reviews. I actually feel organised with my blog for a change!

Anyway, here is what has been happening on the blog this week.

I’m nearly half way through with this and I must admit I am struggling. I suspect I have already worked out who the murderer is because the story is quite predictable but I am really struggling with the characters especially the main character. I will carry on till the end though as I am reading and reviewing it for the publishers but I am finding it all quite odd.

Hello!

I hope everyone has had a good week so far. I have been back at work this week and it has been rather a shock to the system but I am still trying to keep up with my reading.

What I am Currently Reading

I have nearly finished this now and I am really enjoying it. I will definitely be reading more Classics this year.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I read this at the weekend as I quite fancied a short read. It was quite a strange book but fun and I found it amusing in places.

What I Think I will Read Next

I have so many books to read that I am never sure what to read next. It all depends what mood I am in, the curse of being a mood reader.

I’m over half way through with Aeneid and really enjoying it. I have also just started Amours De Voyage, I am finding it rather strange but quite amusing.

Hello!

Welcome to my first WWW Wednesday of 2023. I have had a lovely day today doing lots of crafting and it has been so relaxing. All my crafting projects (well the ones that work) are going on to my Etsy site.

What I am Currently Reading

I started reading a chapter a day of these two books from New Year’s Day and I have really been enjoying both books. I will probably start to read more of The Count of Monte Cristo once I have finished Aeneid.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I absolutely loved The Box of Delights and I have ordered The Midnight Folk to read next.

What I Think I will Read Next

I have so many books that I want to read at the moment I am finding it difficult to choose as I just want to read them all at the same time. I might have to start a TBR jar and pick a book at random.

Please drop me a comment with your WWW Wednesday and I will head over for a visit.

Happy New Year!

Blogging is now hopefully all back to normal because over the festive period everything has gone out of the window. This was sadly mainly due to illness and being too tired to blog but I am thankfully now on the mend.

I missed a weekly brief so this is technically a two week brief.

Currently Reading

I never finished Aeneid by Virgil so I have decided that I will read a book a day starting from today to finish the book. I’m not sure why I didn’t finish it because I absolutely love the book. I have also been reading The Box of Delights by John Masefield and I am hooked. I love his writing and although the slang is rather dated it just adds to the fun of the book.

Hello!

Is everyone ready for Christmas yet? I am still nowhere near ready for Christmas but hopefully I will get there soon. One thing I do know is that I won’t be able to read as many books as I usually do in December this year.

What I am Currently Reading

I just started the poems today and so far so good. Yes I am still plodding along with the Kate Mosse and I am determined to finish it before the New Year.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

The Penguin Book of Christmas Stories wasn’t really a finish because once I got to page 136 the book started again at page 89. I was really frustrated and upset about this as I was really enjoying the book but sadly I am unable to finish it. I did ask Penguin about this on Twitter but they chose to ignore my tweet, oh well. I finished Murder in the Falling Snow this morning and I really enjoyed it. I really enjoy these books and I always make sure I buy the new one each year.

What I Think I will Read Next

I really don’t have a clue what I will read next. To be honest it all depends on my mood.

I hope everyone has had a good weekend so far. I am still trying to catch up on my book reviews but I am falling further behind sadly. Hopefully, things will start to slow down work wise so I can catch up with everything.
