The three ‘W’s are what are you reading now, what have you recently finished reading, and what are you going to read next, and you can find this week’s post at the host’s blog here if you want to check out other posts.

What are you currently reading?

Cover of Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline CareyActually, I’m not in the middle of anything at all, except Kushiel’s Dart, which I’ve been persistently not feeling like reading. Too much terrible stuff happens to Phèdre and Joscelin, and I’m just not in the mood for their world right now. Hopefully I’ll get it back soon…? I am 50% of the way through, so I don’t want to just stop, though of course it’s a reread so I know what happens.

What have you recently finished reading?

Cover of Priam's Gold by Caroline MoorheadI’ve just finished Priam’s Gold, by Caroline Moorehead. It’s about Heinrich Schliemann, the man who excavated at Troy to prove that Homer’s epics were referring to real historical events. It’s partly a biography of Schliemann, but it does also trace his whole archaeological career and the later movements of the treasure he found. That means there’s a couple of chapters on WWII and the way both sides looted art.

Other than that, I just read Winterwood, by Dorothy Eden. It’s a Gothic-ish mystery/romance, sort of in the vein of Mary Stewart’s work, and it actually gave me a couple of surprises…

What will you read next?

Cover of Carry On by Rainbow RowellI don’t know. I honestly feel like some very familiar rereads — Carry On, by Rainbow Rowell, maybe, or The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Cat Valente. Maybe even some Mary Stewart, though I’ve been spacing out those rereads a bit. It is the time of year to snuggle down and be cosy around here, after all…

And what about you, o gentle reader?

  1. I’m not currently reading any book. After reading the massively enjoyable The Lost Plot by Genevieve Cogman, I sunk into a bit of a slump and found none of the thousands of books on my Kindle tickling my fancy just now.

    So I’m playing a choose-your-own adventure game called “The Eight Continent” on my phone instead. It’s sort of reading, and actually pretty good fun (for a postapocalyptic quest story)

    • I’m tempted to reread the previous books (again) to tide me over to Christmas when I get The Lost Plot! I’m really looking forward to it!

      I know that reading slump feeling, alas. Sometimes I think it’s more from trying to make myself read stuff I think people want me to review, though. No more of that for me!
