Hello!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I have had rather a trying day at school today so I am looking forward to curling up with my book later.

What I am Currently Reading

I have fallen a bit behind with my aim of reading a chapter of this a day so today during my lunch break I made an effort to try and catch up and I am really enjoying reading it. I think I will stick to reading just this book for a few days and see how it goes.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I finished this book this morning and I must admit I am quite pleased I finished it as I found this a really hard slog of a read.

What I Think I will Read Next

I am trying to be more structured with my reading this year so I am trying to keep up with my planned reads each month but also allowing myself some mood reads as well. I plan to read The Woman Who Would Be King as my nonfiction book this month.

Happy Reading

First Lines Friday: 27/01/2023

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone has had a good week so far. I started a new book this evening so I thought I would feature it on First Lines Friday.

“Zak Choudary was sitting alone by the window inside a late-night kebab shop on Great Horton Road. It was midnight.

Freedom

After four years of prison”

Get Guessing

Detective Inspector Harry Virdee has a lot on his plate. His team is facing government cuts, tensions are building between Bradford’s two rival drugs gangs and his wife Saima is due to give birth any day now.

So when bodies start turning up in the old industrial district, the pressure is on to get the case wrapped up as quickly as possible, or risk a full-scale gang war.

But the man behind the murders is ruthless and pushy. And things are getting personal. Harry must think fast and bend the rules if he wants to keep his city, and his family, safe . . .

Did anybody guess correctly?

Please drop me a comment with your First Line Friday and I will head over for a visit.

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.

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.

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.

Hello!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far. Our December is not going quite to plan so far. We have had lock problems, car problems and problems with the house. We are hoping our luck will change soon. I have finally started my festive reading but it is looking less and less likely that I will get many festive reads complete this month.

What I am Currently Reading

I am really enjoying this so far. Some of the stories I have read before but others I have never come across which is really nice and I also really love the variety.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

These sadly did not have the wow factor for me and were a bit disappointing.

Here are the reviews:

Ithaca

Politically Correct Holiday Stories

What I Think I will Read Next

Going to stick with my festive reads for now but just in case I have included some non festive reads as well.

Goodreads Monday: 5/12/2022

Goodreads Monday is now hosted by Budget Tales Book Club.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

Hello!

I hope everyone is having a good start to the week so far.

My chosen book this week is one that I have started in the past but never finished but I would really like to finish the book.

This famous story of man’s progress through life in search of salvation remains one of the most entertaining allegories of faith ever written. Set against realistic backdrops of town and country, the powerful drama of the pilgrim’s trials and temptations follows him in his harrowing journey to the Celestial City.
Along a road filled with monsters and spiritual terrors, Christian confronts such emblematic characters as Worldly Wiseman, Giant Despair, Talkative, Ignorance, and the demons of the Valley of the Shadow of Death. But he is also joined by Hopeful and Faithful.
An enormously influential 17th-century classic, universally known for its simplicity, vigor, and beauty of language, The Pilgrim’s Progress remains one of the most widely read books in the English language.

Please drop me a comment if you have taken part in Goodreads Monday and I will head over for a visit.

I hope everyone is having a good week so far. I have managed to get a bit of reading done this week but I must admit this week has been quite tiring work wise so I am looking forward to my day off tomorrow.

What I am Currently Reading

Still plodding along with these two books. I got distracted with a Christmas book which has slowed my reading of these two books down.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I really enjoyed this book and read it in one day. Here is my review.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I am planning on starting my Christmas reading tomorrow but I might also throw in some normal books as well.

I’m still reading Warrior Queens and Quiet Revolutionaries but I am just dipping into it when I fancy reading some non-fiction. I have started Ithaca and really enjoying it so far.

I flew through The Hemlock Cure because I found it such a fantastic read. I really enjoyed The Mystery of the Blue Train here is the review.
