Hello!

Half way through the week already! I hope everyone is having a good week so far.

So here is what I have been up to reading this week.

What I am Currently Reading

I just started this last night so I’m not very far in yet. Hopefully, it will be as good as the first in the series.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

This was an OK read but it was unusually predictable for Christie. Review.

What I Think I will Read Next

As usual I am never sure what I will read next but it will most likely be one of the above.

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

Happy Reading

Goodreads Monday: 29/03/2021

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

Happy Monday!

I am actually teaching this morning, I don’t usually teach on a Monday, so this will make a nice change and it will be good to see one of my students that I haven’t seen for ages, even if it is only on Zoom.

My chosen book to feature today is actually the first book of a series that one of my friends recommended to me and one that I promptly bought but have not got around to reading but I hope to soon.

Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

Probationary Constable Peter Grant dreams of being a detective in London’s Metropolitan Police. Too bad his superior plans to assign him to the Case Progression Unit, where the biggest threat he’ll face is a paper cut. But Peter’s prospects change in the aftermath of a puzzling murder, when he gains exclusive information from an eyewitness who happens to be a ghost. Peter’s ability to speak with the lingering dead brings him to the attention of Detective Chief Inspector Thomas Nightingale, who investigates crimes involving magic and other manifestations of the uncanny. Now, as a wave of brutal and bizarre murders engulfs the city, Peter is plunged into a world where gods and goddesses mingle with mortals and a long-dead evil is making a comeback on a rising tide of magic.

Please drop me a comment if you have read this book or the series, I would love to hear your thoughts. Plus please drop a link to your Goodreads Monday and I will head over for a visit.

Happy Reading.

Hello!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far. My week has been unusually busy with work and I must admit I am rather out of practice and found myself rather worn out today with a migraine.

So here is my reading uodate.

What I am Currently Reading

I’ve read 50 pages so far and I am throughly enjoying it. Any book which starts with “Old bean” always promises to be a good read.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

I absolutely loved this book and will be reading the next in the series soon. Review to follow shortly.

What I think I will Read Next

There are so many books I want to read at the moment I never know what to read next but I think it will be one of these.

So there is another WWW Wednesday.

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

Happy Reading.

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone has had a good start to the week so far.

The book I have chosen for Goodreads Monday is one that I have recently bought and and is now sat on my TBR pile.

So here is the book…

The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie’s first Tommy & Tuppence book is a thrill-packed novel of international intrigue, murder and suspense.

Tommy and Tuppence, two young people short of money and restless for excitement, embark on a daring business scheme – Young Adventurers Ltd.

Their advertisement says they are ‘willing to do anything, go anywhere’. But their first assignment, for the sinister Mr Whittington, plunges them into more danger than they ever imagined…

I am trying to read all of the works of Agatha Christie in order of publication and this is the next one on the list. Hopefully, I will read it soon as I am rather excited to read my first Tommy and Tuppence book.

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

Hello!

I hope everyone is having a good week so far.

Here is my reading update…

What I am Currently Reading

Just started this today and only 24 pages in as I have read it in gaps between teaching as all my spare time has been used wrestling with an essay, but so far I am really enjoying it. It took me a bit to get used to Kidd’s writing style as she is very descriptive but I’m hooked!

What I have Recently Finished Reading

Loved this and found it highly amusing. Review will follow shortly.

What I think I will Read Next

There are so many books I want to read at the moment and so many I have on my wish list. I just don’t know what to read next!

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.

Hello!

The book I have chosen today has been sat on my TBR pile for a very long time. I actually got the second book in the series in a Goodreads competition and then immediately bought the first in the series and they have been on the pile ever since.

So here is the book…

Red Sister by Mark Lawrence

“I was born for killing – the gods made me to ruin”

At the Convent of Sweet Mercy young girls are raised to be killers. In a few the old bloods show, gifting talents rarely seen since the tribes beached their ships on Abeth. Sweet Mercy hones its novices’ skills to deadly effect: it takes ten years to educate a Red Sister in the ways of blade and fist.

But even the mistresses of sword and shadow don’t truly understand what they have purchased when Nona Grey is brought to their halls as a bloodstained child of eight, falsely accused of murder: guilty of worse.

Hopefully I will read the series this year.

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

Happy Reading.

Hello! Happy Wednesday!

I hope everyone enjoyed some yummy pancakes yesterday. I have a busy day teaching today but I am hoping to fit in some reading between lessons.

What I am Currently Reading

I’m about a third of the way through this book and so far I’m struggling to put it down. I thoroughly love the character of Georgiou and there are some very amusing scenes in the book.

What I have Recently Finished Reading

Review will follow shortly of this book but it will be a positive one, as I loved the book and seeing how the characters from the first book are developing.

What I think I will Read Next

In all honesty I have no clue what to read next. I might have to ask my best friend to choose for me again as that really helped the last time.

Please drop me the link to your WWW Wednesday post and I will head over for a visit. I love seeing what everyone has been up to reading wise during the week so please do say hello. Also if you think I should read one of the above books next please let me know.

Amazon | Book Depository | Foyles | Waterstones | Wordery
