W...W...W... Wednesdays



I'm joining in with a meme organised by MizB @ shouldbereading. To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?


Currently reading: A Cotswold Killing by Rebecca Tope -the first in a series of books featuring the character, Thea Osbourne.  I've only just started it but I was hooked on the first page - a nice gentle English murder mystery.

Recently finished: in the last two weeks I've read 'Frog' and 'Frog and the Sandspiders of Aridian', two children's books written by Joffre White.  Excellent books and I can't wait for the remaining two books in the series to be published.  I also read 'Mistress of the Art of Death' by Ariana Franklin which was a murder mystery set in medieval England.  This was a bit of a slow start and I nearly gave up with it but I'm glad I kept going because it ended up being a very enjoyable read.  There are other books in this series which I'll be adding to my 'to read' list.

Reading next: As one of my 52 things I'll be joining in with the Dewey's 24 hour Read-a-Thon which takes place this coming weekend so I've stocked up on books from the library.  I won't be able to do the full 24 hours (because I'm a carer and so have unavoidable demands on my time) but I'm hoping to be able to read/join in on the internet for about 12 to 18 hours and hope to read at least two books in that time.  I have the following books to choose from: Presumed Guilty - Tess Gerritsen, One Summer - David Baldacci, The Book of Murder - Guillermo Martinez & Oxford Blue - Veronica Stallwood.  All chosen because they look like being fairly undemanding reads, which is what I'll need to get through a read-a-thon.
