This Week in Books (May 6)

Hosted by Lipsy Lost and Found, my Wednesday post gives you a taste of what I’m reading this week. A similar meme is run by Taking on a World of Words.

| LAST BOOK I FINISHED READING |

Warwickshire in the 1580s. Agnes is a woman as feared as she is sought after for her unusual gifts. She settles with her husband in Henley street, Stratford, and has three children: a daughter, Susanna, and then twins, Hamnet and Judith. The boy, Hamnet, dies in 1596, aged eleven. Four years or so later, the husband writes a play called Hamlet. 

[Beautifully written and I really enjoyed it, though possibly not as much as some other reviews I’ve seen.]

| THE BOOK I’M CURRENTLY READING |

For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. She’s barefoot and wild; unfit for polite society. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark.

But Kya is not what they say. Abandoned at age ten, she has survived on her own in the marsh that she calls home. A born naturalist with just one day of school, she takes life lessons from the land, learning from the false signals of fireflies the real way of this world. But while she could have lived in solitude forever, the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. Drawn to two young men from town, who are each intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world–until the unthinkable happens.

[Last week’s poll winner. I only started this one last night so I don’t have much to say about it just yet. 😂]

| WHAT TO READ NEXT? |

Yep, it’s that time of the week again. You get to decide what I’ll be reading next.

By the way, you don’t have to vote for a book you’ve read and enjoyed. You can vote for something that just appeals to you. I own all of these anyway. They should be read at some point, apparently. 😉

I can’t wait to see which book wins the poll this time. You have time to decide what I’ll be reading next until I finish my current read. Although, at the slow pace I’ve been going lately, I may need to squeeze in a blog tour book first.

What have you been reading this week? Anything good? Do let me know! I need to buy some new books soon. 😏. Happy reading! xx

  2. I need to read that one. I just finished Salt to the Sea, by Ruta Sepetys and enjoyed it. My review is on my blog today. My favorite historical read of late was The Fountains of Silence by the same author.
