Wednesday Catch-Up 4th May 2016

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:
Savage MagicDoctor Thorne (Chronicles of Barsetshire, #3)
I am almost done with Savage Magic by Lloyd Shepherd, to start with I thought it was a bit all over the place - but everything does tie together and make sense so I am enjoying it now. I have just started Doctor Thorne which is the third book in the Barchester Chronicles and my May Classics TBR read!

Recently Finished:
Death At Bishops Keep - The Victorian Mystery SeriesDeath at Gallows Green (The Victorian Mystery Series)Barchester Towers (Chronicles of Barsetshire #2)
I had a bit of a slow reading week this week. I read Death at Bishop's Keep in one day and really enjoyed it, but Death at Gallows Green took me the rest of the week, and I found I just wasn't as absorbed in it - perhaps I was just not in the right mood for it? I do want to continue the series but I am not sure it's a priority. I also finished Barchester Towers which I enjoyed, though not as much as I enjoyed the first book in the series.

Planning to Read Next:

The Suicide ClubDead Cold (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache #2)The Detective's Daughter
I am planning to move on to some more modern mysteries next, since I have been pretty much only reading historical novels. The Suicide Club is set during World War 1 so still historical but both Dead Cold and The Detective's Daughter are, I believe, modern. This isn't a genre I've really read before so I am interested to see what I think! Also the blurbs promising "twists and turns and suspense" and "a haunting novel driven by a simple but clever plot" intrigue me a lot. 


Currently Reading:
City of Masks (Stravaganza, #1)Heat Wave (Nikki Heat, #1)Les Misérables
I am currently reading City of Masks which I have only read a few pages of but so far am enjoying and look forward to reading the rest of the books in the series. I am also reading Heat Wave which I am loving and am so happy to finally be able to read as I am a big fan of the TV series Castle. I am really enjoying the plot of the book so far and am exited to read the other two books I have in the series. I am also going to be starting Les Miserables this month and am really hoping to be able to finish it although I may spread it out over two months.

Recently Finished:
Confessions of a Murder Suspect (Confessions, #1)The Swan Kingdom

Recently I finished reading Confessions of a Murder Suspect which was such a fun read as it had just the right amount of funny moments while remaining serious and suspenseful. I also liked the fact it only gave you some facts about her past at a time making it harder to figure out although I did have a hunch about what had happened and my hunch was right. I also recently finished The Swan Kingdom which was confusing in places but I did still really enjoy it. 

Planning to Read Next:

I am leaving this open for now. I have just started two great series that I may want to continue or I might feel like reading something else!

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


  1. Good luck with Les Mis! That's a huge undertaking. Happy reading!

    1. I hope Ann does well with it! It's one of my favourite Classics, although yeah kinda huge!
