WWW Wednesdays

WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Miz B of Should Be Reading

To play along, just answer the following 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've just started The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd, author of The Secret Life of Bees. I've been having great discussions about this with fellow blogger, Lucy over at The Secret Life of Books so can't wait to read it. 

However, just last night, what should arrive in the mailbox but... The Decadent Houswife: How to live lavishly on his budget and I simply can't wait to extract all there is to extract from these words of wisdom - and put them into practice of course!

What did you recently finish reading? I've managed to finish a few books I was halfway through last week, so ticked off the list is Sons of Fortune, by Jeffrey Archer (fabulous) and Never Let Me Go, by Kazuo Ishiguro (hhhmmm). I'm now really intrigued to see this movie, particularly after recent blogging debates about the movie vs books!

What do you think you’ll read next? The Tapestry of Love, by Rosy Thornton is in the running, as is another Jeffrey Archer, possibly False Impression or maybe a Linda Holeman book.


  1. I've been meaning to read The Mermaid Chair, it always looks so appealing.

    Here's mine:

  2. We share very similar tastes - I would read all of the above :)

  3. I loved Never Let Me Go - I thought the movie came close but not quite to capturing the book. :)

  4. I recently read "The Mermaid Chair" and really enjoyed it...but it was by Santa it the same book?

    And Tapestry of Love is on my to-read list!

    My post is here:

  5., I didn't read The Mermaid Chair...I read The Mermaid Garden! My bad. :)

  6. I'm a big fan of Jeffrey Archer.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  7. I recently loved "Just Kids" by Patti Smith very late 60's and early 70's
    an excellent read.
    You must read the Peter Mayne book about Marrakesh soon
    really exactly the same in the present time as it was 60-ish years ago.

  8. The Tapestry of Love looks interesting. Thank you for stopping by. Glad you did because I am now your newest follower and look forward to your future posts.

  9. I just added "Never Let Me Go" to my TBR list. The couple of comments about the movie vs the book are interesting. I love reading the book and then watching the movie to compare. Hope you can stop by and see my WWW Wednesday. I watched "Secret Life of Bees" but just couldn't read the book. Yet I loved the movie! Newest follower

  10. The Decadent Houswife: How to live lavishly on his budget

    Haha I love that! I might have to throw that on my TBR.
