The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
And I’m also enjoying Hunter Davies’ memoir Happy Old Me: How to Live a Long Life and Really Enjoy It. This is an account of one year in his life after his wife, Margaret Forster died – poignant, moving and very interesting.
Recently Finished: Death Has Deep Roots: a Second World War Mystery by Michael Gilbert. Set in 1950 it’s a mix of courtroom drama, spy novel and an adventure thriller. Victoria Lamartine, a hotel worker, and an ex-French Resistance fighter is on trial for the murder of Major Eric Thoseby, her supposed lover, and alleged father of her dead child. My full review is in this post.
Reading Next: This is a movable feast, as I rarely decide until the time comes.
Yesterday I picked up several books in Barter Books, and am itching to read The Silence Between Breaths by Cath Staincliffe – Passengers boarding the 10.35 train from Manchester Piccadilly to London Euston are bound for work, assignations, reunions, holidays or new starts, with no idea that their journey is about to be brutally curtailed.
I did begin reading it whilst having a cup of coffee in Barter Books and the opening chapters make me want to read more.
Or it could be one of my TBRs – I simply don’t know yet.
Have you read any of these books? Do any of them tempt you?
