WWW Wednesday Aug 25

This is one of my favourite memes. It’s currently hosted by Sam and it can be found on her blog Taking on a world of words at https://samannelizabeth.wordpress.com/. The idea is just to answer three questions about your reading:
The three questions are:

What are you currently reading?

What have you recently finished reading?

What are you planning to read next?

Current Read:

Midnight at the Malabar Hotel by Vaseem Khan

I am really enjoying this at the moment. The main plot point is the murder of an Englishman on New Year’s Eve 1949 in Bombay. The case is phoned in to Malabar Hotel which is the police station containing rejects and misfits from other stations. It’s picked up by Persis Wadia, Bombay’s first female police inspector and she is determined to get to the truth even though the establishment seems determined to prevent her. As well as the murder itself, there is a lot of detail about life in post-partition India. So far, it’s a great read. This is also the last book of my #20BooksofSummer.

Recently finished:

I loved both of these. Vespertine was an ARC from Net Galley and isn’t published until Oct. It’s a gloriously gothic YA novel about a trainee nun and a world that is terrorised by undead spirits. My review is here https://wordpress.com/post/devoil.wordpress.com/2180. A Vintage Summer was a lovely relaxing read full of details about wine making as well as a romance (in fact several romances). Definitely one I would recommend.

Next Planned Read

Daughters of Sparta by Claire Heywood

This is one of this week’s haul from my local library and seemed like a good book to read after finishing Ariadne last week.

So that’s my reading for this week. I can’t wait to read everyone else’s WWW Wednesday posts.
