It’s Wednesday, so time to address the three Ws:
- What are you currently reading?
- What have you recently finished reading?
- What are you reading next?
And linking up with Taking on a World of Words.
I’m getting back into a book I’d abandoned for a little while, Murder on Milverton Square by G.B. Ralph. It’s a mystery set in New Zealand, and so far it’s not filling me with special enthusiasm, but it’s enjoyable enough light reading, if that makes sense.
I finally finished reading Sailor’s Delight by Rose Lerner! I know I’d talked about it several weeks in a row, and now I’ve finally got back into it. I love the way it works out, but mostly I love how careful it is to ground the story in the Jewish year and Jewish ways of thought. I haven’t read a lot of stories with that kind of basis/setting, and I enjoyed learning a little more through story.
Plus, the relationship between Elie and Brine is sweet.
Volume four of The Scum Villain’s Self-Saving System! I’ll be honest, I’ve peeked ahead a little bit: this volume is short stories, and I knew roughly what each one contained, so I’ve peeked at some of them to see how they play out. I’ll be sad to see this world finished: it really sucked me in more than I expected.
What about you? What are you currently reading?
