#WWW Wednesday – May 09, 2018

It’s time for WWW Wednesday! This blog hop is hosted by Sam over at A World Of Words. Link up with us by commenting on Sam’s post for this week, and just answer the three questions.

What have you recently finished reading? 

I finished Lessons in Letting Go: Confessions of a Hoarder by Corinne Grant. To be honest, at first I wasn’t sure if I would finish it, as the chapters about where her hoarding began and how it affected her life were quite depressing. But once she got onto how she faced the problem once she recognised it, I became much more engaged. Review will be up next week.

I am finally reviewing again! I posted my reviews of Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie and Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery this week. Click the titles to read them.

What are you currently reading? 

I am still going with Hero at the Fall by Alwyn Hamilton. I haven’t had much of a chance to make a dent in it. So far, though, I feel like it maintaining the standard of the previous two books.

I am also listening to The Strings of Murder by Oscar de Muriel. This is a great historical mystery and if you enjoy audio books, I definitely recommend this one. The narrator is great. The conflict between the two leads, London gentleman Ian Frey and his new boss, rough-around-the-edges Scotsman Adolpho McGrey, is a lot of fun.

What do you think you will read next?

I have borrowed a copy of Blackwing by Ed McDonald from a friend. This friend is as picky, if not more picky, than I am about fantasy, and he thought it was great, so I’m hoping I feel the same way.

    I’ve been listening to audio books more lately – helps with the road rage caused by incompetent drivers I seem to attract. I’ve also had Alexa read to my from my Kindle. Happy Reading!

    So glad you enjoyed Murder of the Orient Express. I knew the story from the previous film version (the all-star one with Albert Finney, Lauren Bacall and a host of other stars) but I read the book recently before seeing the latest film version with Kenneth Branagh, just to see how close the film was to the book. It must be so great to have read it without knowing the ending. I do think it’s one of Agatha Christie’s cleverest – that and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.

      I am similar! I have occasionally put aside an audio book and tracked down the print version because I knew I would like the book but the narrator was putting me off for one reason or another. The guy doing The Strings of Murder is great, though. A whole range of accents and volumes and emotions; all of that.
