Wednesday Catch-Up 18th January 2017

Every Wednesday we are linking up with WWW Wednesday. WWW Wednesday is hosted at Taking on a World of Words and asks 3 questions: What are you currently reading?, What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you'll read next?

Currently Reading:

The House on Sunset LakeEmma
I am currently reading The House on Sunset Lake. I've heard good things about Tasmina Perry's other books but nothing at all about this one so I am very intrigued. The cover is gorgeous and the plot sounds like my thing - with the story set in two times. I also decided to pick up Emma since I finished P&P early. Emma is actually my favourite Jane Austen novel so I know I will get through this by the end of the month.

Recently Finished:

The SecretThe Smoke HunterPride and Prejudice
The first book I read this week was The Secret by Kathryn Hughes which was a good, twisty novel with some great characters. This also fits in the 1960-1979 section of the When Are You Reading Challenge which is amazing because I thought that would be one of the harder ones to fill! I have a full review up for this one here. I then spent the rest of the week reading The Smoke Hunter by Jacquelyn Benson which I loved. It took me most of the week to read, partly because I didn't have a lot of time to read and partly because I just wanted to savour it. This is the sort of Indiana Jones-esque adventure novel I've been waiting most of my life for but with an amazing female main character (I love her). I should have a review up for this tomorrow! And I finished my Classic for the month - Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I loved re-reading this, I don't actually know how many times I've read it but it's a lot! 

Planning to Read Next:

The Quest (Sanshlian Series, #1)Trapped in WonderlandMercury Striking (Scorpius Syndrome, #1)
The Quest and Trapped in Wonderland are definites for me as I am taking part in a blog tour for the latter soon and want to have my review ready! And me being me, I have to read The Quest before Trapped in Wonderland because I got it first? Thanks to Dani Hoots for sending me review copies of both these books! And then Mercury Striking is a maybe. I feel kind of in the mood for it at the moment but I am not sure how I will feel by the time I've finished the others so we shall see?

You can also find us on Goodreads (Ann and Clare) to keep up with what we are reading

I am such a huge Jane Austen fan. Emma was the first of her novels I read and I think I fell in love about 2 pages in. I think Persuasion is my favourite, but it feels a little like picking a favourite child! I'm in awe of how many books you read!

The House on Sunset Lake looks lovely! I hope you enjoy it. I have never read Emma. I read P&P, though. I hope you enjoy them both!
