#WWWWednesday: 24 June

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?

Since last Wednesday I’ve managed to finish four books. The majority of my reads are still for blog tours, which I’m surprised to have completed well ahead of my dates this week, but I also read two romances because my mood told me to!

The Crow Rider (The Storm Crow #2) by Kalyn Josephson ★★★½
This was a really satisfying conclusion to this duology. We get more strong friendships, some character growth, intriguing revelations, an awesome battle, and plenty more crow magic with a cheeky little crow that will steal your heart. Friday is my stop on the blog tour so be on the look out for my review then!

Walk of Shame by Lauren Layne ★★★½
I picked this up immediately after the lovely Emer suggested it in part one of her rom com recs. This was my second book by Layne and I thoroughly enjoyed it! This was easy to speed through in one sitting and was great for a laugh. I loved the characters and there was just the right amount of angst. Although the ending felt rushed and “too easy” this was still a fun romcom with great banter and quirky characters. Review coming very soon!

I Knew You Were Trouble by Lauren Layne ★★★½
I decided to read another book by Layne after finishing Walk of Shame and again, this was easy to quickly devour in one sitting. The level of angst in this one was a bit higher but the chemistry was undeniable and the antagonistic banter was just as good! I loved our hero, Nick 💜 Although this is book four in a series it can definitely be read as a standalone because I didn’t read the other three before this. Review coming very soon!

I Killed Zoe Spanos by Kit Frick ★★★½
I have to admit to being a bit disappointed that I didn’t enjoy this one as much as I’d hoped especially with the ‘big reveal’/ending. It’s said to be for fans of Sadie and while I get it with the mixed media format, that was a bit of the extent of it. I was surprised by how eerily atmospheric Frick’s writing was though and this was definitely not the typical sunshine and wealth Hamptons that we’re used to seeing. Although I struggled at the start, once the pace picked up I sped through it. I know I’m in the minority with my opinion though and I think it’ll be a big summer hit. My stop on the blog tour is TOMORROW so be sure to look out for my review then 😉

I’m wrapping up my read of Summer Strawberries at Swallowtail Bay for my last blog tour this week and I’ve enjoyed it a lot more than I initially thought I would! I’m getting some strong Mr. Darcy vibes from our Mr. Thornhill in the book and I’ll always be here for that. 😍 Hetty is also a strong and empowering female lead and I’m liking her big-hearted strong-willed personality. I put aside Wundersmith to finish my other reads this weekend but will be picking it up again after finishing Summer Strawberries!

All the blog tour reads… ALL THE BLOG TOUR READS!!! 😂

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

  1. Glad to see you reading so many books again! It seems that it was a very consistent week, 3 1/2 stars for all 😀 How is your island on animal crossing progressing? I didn’t get the game, but now that the hype died down a bit, I’m not so eager to play anymore… lol

    1. HAHA I’m slowly coming off my ACNH high although I’m still playing it. I think I’m just stumped with what to do with the rest of my island. There are only some small parts of the island “left” to decorate and I want to create a cool outdoor library but I don’t even know where to start 🤣 YOU SHOULD PLAY, ALEX! ❤ ❤ ❤ And then come visit my island! Haha Also yeah, I was pretty consistent with the ratings, huh?

    1. After waffling a bit with other reads, I’m finally picking it up today and I’m really excited! I’m happy to hear you thought it was a good ending 😀 Nothing worse than a disappointing end to a series lol

    1. Haha I hope you enjoy it! It’s a really quick read. Looking forward to hearing what you think of it if you do pick it up 😀 I’m about to start Unravel the Dusk now and I’m SO EXCITED! Also, you should definitely read Wundersmith! I finished it last week and it was soo good! I can’t wait for Hollowpox 😍 This series deserves so much more attention!
