- What are you currently reading?
Nothing, actually, as I just finished a book this evening and have yet to start a new one. (I had something on tonight).
- What did you recently finish?
After a week of not reading much at all because I had things on and then had my mother visiting all weekend, I finally finished The Island of Doctor Moreau today. I enjoyed it well enough though I can’t say Wells is at the top of my list of favourite authors.
I also ended up returning Tiger Lily to the library. I was a third of the way through and it didn’t seem to be going anywhere, so I gave up.
- What do you think you’ll read next?
I finally picked up Her Dark Curiosity from the library. It’s the second in the The Madman’s Daughter trilogy, and is inspired by The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (which I referred to simply as Jekyll and Hyde last week… I realised later that that’s the title of the musical, not the book. I’m far more familiar with the former, though). I’m really looking forward to it!
Onto WIPpet Wednesday and my goodness, does it feel good to be writing consistently again. Well, it’s really only been two days of ROW80 so far, since I wrote my goals late on Monday night, but it’s feeling good at the moment. In spite of all that, I’m keeping my WIPpet short today. I’m sharing 15 words; I got to 15 by adding the day and the month together. Grace has recently returned to Merrowford and is chatting to the guy on the desk in the gift shop of the historic home, regarding a medium who will be appearing at a seance on the weekend.
“Is she for real? “
He grinned. “Not in the slightest. Hilarious, though.” Grace smiled back.
After two rather short ones, I promise I’ll have something meatier for you next week. I sort of maybe got distracted by Netflix in the middle of writing this post, and it’s now nearly 11pm, so I should probably go to bed. Perhaps going to bed at 11 rather than 10 will mean I don’t wake up at 2 like I’ve been doing the past several nights. That would be nice. Anyway. Goodnight!
