Wednesday Catch-Up 11th 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 SecretPride and Prejudice
I am just starting The Secret by Kathryn Hughes. I believe it's a novel set in two times which is a genre I generally love. The cover is so nice as well, and very intriguing. I know I'd be drawn to that bundle of photographs and the key if I came across them in real life! I am also still reading my Classic of the month Pride and Prejudice. This is a re-read and I am really enjoying it. 

Recently Finished:

The Viscount and the Vixen (Hellions of Havisham, #3)The Art of Sinning (Sinful Suitors, #1)Visions of Heat (Psy-Changeling, #2)Caressed by Ice (Psy-Changeling, #3)
The Viscount and the Vixen was a little underwhelming for me, it was a quick and easy read but ultimately didn't grab my attention. The Art of Sinning however was a good read. It took me a while to remember who everyone was (from the Duke's Men) series. Although this is the first in a new series I would definitely recommend read the Duke's Men series first because there are quite a few references to events that, whilst not integral to this story, definitely provide useful background! Finally I read Visions of Heat and Caressed by Ice by Nalini Singh. These are the 2nd and 3rd books in the Psy-Changeling series which I am hoping to work my way through this year!

Planning to Read Next:

The Smoke HunterThe House on Sunset LakeThe Quest (Sanshlian Series, #1)
I know I keep listing these three as "reading next" and then getting completely distracted off topic. And I have no idea why because I am genuinely excited for all of them! The Smoke Hunter is one I am really, really anticipating because it's described as "Lara Croft meets Indiana Jones" and honestly what's not exciting about that?? Next I want to read The House on Sunset Lake is another one that's set in two times, the cover is gorgeous and it seems like a gentle read that I will really enjoy! And finally The Quest by Dani Hoots which is one I am really intrigued by - I've been really wanting to read more Sci-Fi lately and this seems perfect!


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

Yes I like the sound of The Secret too - I do love books set in two different time periods.

I LOVE the sound of Lara Croft meets Indiana Jones! I'll look forward to hearing what you make of that one :-)
Very jealous of you re-reading Pride and Prejudice - that's one of my all-time favourites.

I hope The smoke Hunter is good! I haven't seen many reviews and I kinda want to read it. :)

Me too, especially having just finished the first book in the Outlander series

I love discovering new books I've heard nothing about and you definitely do that for me so I look forward to seeing what you think about these books. Ashley @ BookishRealmReviews

Clare Stone said...

I am excited for them!

Clare Stone said...

I wish there were more books like it - it's a genre I rarely see!

Clare Stone said...

How could anybody resist a Lara Croft/Indiana Jones combination!

Clare Stone said...

I am hoping to get my review up for it this month! Assuming I actually stick to what I am planning to read! I always love re-reading Austen but I so rarely feel like I have time when there are so many new books to read!!

Clare Stone said...

I will definitely be doing a review for it soon! :)

Clare Stone said...

I'm glad! That's what I aim for - and discovering new books is one of my favourite things about blogging!

Olivia said...

The Quest looks really interesting and just like something I'd read!
