#WWWWednesday: 19 February

Hello, hello and welcome back to another episode of WWW Wednesday, a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words, which means I’ll be answering these questions:

  1. What did you read last?
  2. What are you currently reading?
  3. What will you read next?

So remember how last week I challenged myself to read all those romances? Well, I didn’t manage to read ten but I did get through eight! Although the majority of romances I read were on my possibility pile, I did stray and pick up a dystopian romance series on a whim (hmm). Plus I read two other books so in total I’ve read 10 books since last Wednesday (who am I even). As always, you can check out my mini-mini reviews below!

Kingshold (The Wildfire Cycle #1) by D.P. Woolliscroft ★★★★☆
This is a fantasy that’s not to be missed! There’s great world building, the writing is infused with humour and is easy to follow despite there being so many characters. Everything came together seamlessly and nothing felt forced. My blog tour review will be posted on Saturday!

A Pizza My Heart (Slice #1) by Teagan Hunter ★★★☆☆
Y’all know how much I loved Hunter’s ‘Texting’ series because I can’t stop gushing about it, so I was a little disappointed with my lack of feels for A Pizza My Heart. It wasn’t bad, but it was missing the cheeky sass and spark I’d come to expect from her writing! Check out my mini review.

I Knead You Tonight (Slice #2) by Teagan Hunter ★★★★☆
The sass and banter came back in the second book of this series and I was living for it! I didn’t particularly care for both characters when they’re intro’d in book one, but I grew to love them so much in this book! They’re both such strong characters and it was super a satisfying read. Check out my mini review.

That Secret Crush (Getting Lucky #3) by Meghan Quinn ★★★★½
I’d been waiting for this release since finishing book two and it really didn’t disappoint. I didn’t think much of Reid before but I loved his no-filter character and Eve was his perfect match! I loved their love 😍 All I know is that I can’t wait for the last book now. I needed it yesterday! Check out my full review.

Well Met (Well Met #1) by Jen DeLuca ★★★★★
All the swoons for me when I was reading this book! I was definitely kicking myself for not reading it sooner. Who knew that a Ren Faire romance is what I needed in my life? I adored Emily and Simon so much and I really enjoyed their character development! 💞 Check out my full review.

The Rain Trilogy by B.B. Easton ★★★☆☆ (average)
With book one I knew this book wasn’t for me. I just couldn’t with the super insta-love but I also couldn’t stop reading it until and I can’t explain why. It did get *marginally* better as the story progressed and the ending was satisfying but I still don’t think I’d recommend it… Review coming soon.

Love Lettering by Kate Clayborn ★★★★★
I fell hard and fast for Meg & Reid and their love story. This book gave me all the feels and I had a much deeper connection to the story and characters than I expected to when going into it. It’s a wonderful read that I know I’ll be recommending, especially to you romance lovers out there! Review coming soon.

Friends with the Monsters by Albany Walker ★★★½ – ★★★★☆?
So… I’ve never read a Reverse Harem romance before but one TTT post led to Goodreads to Amazon searches through books I’ve never even thought of reading before and I ended up on this. The cover is what really caught my eye coz it’s just really cool and dark? I’m surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It was a dark read with monsters, supernaturals and magic. Plus the heroine was vicious. Obviously it goes without saying there was a lot of sex. Not sure if I’ll continue reading Reverse Harem romances but it was definitely interesting! Review (maybe) coming soon.

I’ve finally started Wicked As You Wish and it’s quite unlike anything I’ve read before–and not in a bad way either! Not gonna lie, it took some time for me to get used to the very descriptive writing but it’s infused with such a matter-of-fact/humorous tone that it has grown on me. I’m also finally reading Vengeful as part of a group read (that I forgot about) with the TBR and Beyond Book Club. I’m quickly being reminded of why I love Victor so much. He’s such a great character!

With all these unplanned (and forgotten) reads I feel like I’m falling ‘behind’ on my blog tour reads as quite a few of these are coming real close to one another. That said, I’m not actually behind yet I’m just starting to feel the pressure of the reads (slightly). Still not giving me stress though as long as I keep reading!

How is your reading week going and what are you currently reading?

    1. I KNOW, I shocked myself too! 😂 I usually read 2-3 books a week and if it’s a good week and the reads are short then maybe 4 or max 5. So this was an amazing week of reading and might even be a record 😅 It helps that I live alone and am a total cave dweller who doesn’t check her phone post-7pm haha

    1. It was a record for me too, Kitty! Pretty sure I’ve never read this many books in a week in my life 🤣 I don’t think it’ll be happening again anytime soon either! Haha Well Met was just such a feel good romance ❤ It gave me all the feels!

  1. That’s pretty much how I’ve felt about the Rain Trilogy! I haven’t read the last book yet, though. I don’t love it and wouldn’t recommend it, but there’s something about it that makes it so that I can’t put it down…

    1. The last book was probably the best one for me and I’m pretty sure that’s because it had the least amount of romance 😂 Rain just stepped up too and although I had to suspend my disbelief (who am I kidding, that was what I was doing for the whole series!), it was still a nice empowering moment for her! Glad to know I’m not the only who can’t seem to put it down despite not recommending it 😅

    1. Haha thank you! I was on fire and I don’t even know how–I didn’t think it’d be possible for me to do! I’ve been sick and I just have no social life and live alone so that helps 😂 Haha
