I’m going to give this weekly meme a try in the hope that I’ll get into posting more regularly, even if it is likely to be mostly about books for the moment. (What’s not to like about books?)
WWW Wednesday is currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. Each week there are three questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
What are you currently reading? I’m currently reading Bone China by Laura Purcell. Partly set in an atmospheric old house on the cliffs in Cornwall, this is a gothic tale filled with past sins, faery myths, madness, misdeeds and of course the bone china of the title. I’m reading this book through The Pigeonhole and the final stave (instalment) is released tomorrow and I can’t wait!
What did you recently finish reading? I recently finished another book based in Cornwall – The Salt Path by Raynor Winn. Ray and her husband, Moth, have a series of terrible experiences which leave them homeless and almost hopeless. With nothing ahead of them but Moth’s debilitating and degenerative illness, they embark on walking the full 630 miles of the South West Coastal Path. (They would have walked past Morvoren House from Bone China if it existed!) The book is particularly meaningful for me because of my own love of the area but it’s a moving and beautiful book for anyone.
What do you think you’ll read next? I’m looking forward to starting Over Sea, Under Stone, the first in the children’s classic fantasy series ‘The Dark is Rising’ by Susan Cooper. This also happens to be set in Cornwall. I don’t only read books with a Cornish setting – honestly!
