I have literally just started this so can’t really say much about it so far. I hope it proves to be good.

 

What I recently finished reading

 

It has been a busy week on the reading front, I really enjoyed all three of these books and reviews will shortly follow. My favourite out of the three was probably A Very Country Christmas.

Hello everyone!

I’m very happy because I have managed to get quite a bit of reading in over the last week. I hope everyone else is having a good December so far.

 

What am I currently reading?

I’m reading A Literary Christmas in bits so I am basically dipping into it when I want something festive to read. 

Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas is going OK so far even if it is making me grimace in places.

 

What I recently finished reading

I finished these three books basically at the same time I enjoyed them all but my favourite of the three was Christmas on the Little Cornish Isles by Phillipa Ashley.

 

What I plan on reading next

I am rather excited about these two books and I’m not sure which I will read first so I have put them both up.

 

Drop me comment if you have read any of these books and please drop a comment with your link in if you have also done the WWW Wednesday and I will check it out.

Well it is time for another WWW Wednesday, I must admit I only do these when I have started new books and at the moment I seem to be on a roll hence the weekly posts!

 

What I am currently reading

Christmas on the Little Cornish Isles by Phillipa Ashley

I started this a few days ago and so far really enjoying it, fingers crossed it continues that way.

One Day In Winter by Shari Low

I’m still going with this one but as it is on my phone and I only really read it when I’m waiting for students to turn up it isn’t going very fast. However, I am enjoying it and I am averaging a chapter a day.

 

What I recently finished reading

51mLO4E4UAL._SX324_BO1,204,203,200_

Finished this a few days ago and really enjoyed it. A great book to dip into or read straight through. My review is here.

 

What I think I will read next

 

I recently bought both these books and I know I am Christmas reading but I do not think I have enough Christmas books to see me through till Christmas. I need to pad my list out a bit with none Christmas books.

 

So that is my WWW Wednesday, please drop me comment with your WWW Wednesday link in and I will head over to check it out. Also if you have any thoughts on the books mentioned today please feel free to comment below.

Bye for now.

Mid Week Quote: Lewis Carroll

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Are people getting into the Festive spirit yet? I haven’t started putting decorations up yet, that will be in December but I am reading Christmas books and playing Christmas music.

This week’s quote is by Lewis Carroll and one I can relate to as recently I am using my dictionary a great deal when studying and also using The Oxford Classical Dictionary almost daily!

 

“What a comfort a Dictionary is!”

 

Lewis Carroll (1893)

What I am currently reading

One Day in Winter by Shari Low

This is a new author for me and I got the book for free on Apple books. I’m only two chapters in but so far it seems to be going ok.

A Very Murderous Christmas by various authors

I have read six stories so far and so far absolutely loving the book!

 

What I finished reading recently

 

Venus and Adonis by William Shakespeare

I finished this on Monday and sadly I found it a really disappointing read and I feel like a bad person for saying it because it is by William Shakespeare!

The Janus Stone by Elly Griffiths

I loved this book so much, it kept me hooked from beginning to end. I highly recommend it.

 

What I plan on reading next
