WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. As a book lover I’m glad to take part. Here are my answers to the three “W’s”.
What are you currently reading?
I am just starting “Dipped, Stripped & Dead,” by Elise Hyatt (a pen name for Sarah A. Hoyt.) It’s the first in a series featuring Dyce Dare, a clumsy young girl who though she wanted to be a ballerina, ended up refinishing furniture and dumpster diving to supply her business. Then she stumbled over a dead body….
What did you recently finish reading?
I just finished “Beyond Tears: A Mother’s Fight to Save Her Son in Nazi Germany” by Irmgard Litten. This book is heartbreaking – the story of how one man incurred the everlasting enmity of Adolf Hitler by issuing a subpoena to him in 1931, and cross-examining hm on the witness stand in a trial of several SA thugs. Hitler never forgave Hans Litten, and when he came to power, threw him into a succession of concentration camps in 1933. I published my review earlier this week.
What do you think you’ll read next?
After Dipped, Stripped, and Dead I think I’ll be ready to tackle something serious again. But I probably won’t – I’ve been reading so many serious books! I think my next book will be a mystery with some political overtones, set in a farming community. I think I’ll read The Gentleman Farmers.
