#WWWWednesday: 12 January 2022

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?

Post divider: What did you just finish reading?

We’re halfway through the month of January (can you believe?) and since last week’s check-in, I’ve managed to read seven books. I’m surprisingly reading a lot of graphic novels but I ain’t mad about it cos I enjoyed them all! ๐Ÿฅฐ This was mostly winning, save for one that ended up being the first 1-star rating I’ve given in a while… ๐Ÿ‘€

The Wedding Setup: A Short Story by Sonali Dev โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ
This short story made me upset that I hadn’t yet read anything else by Dev but I plan to rectify that right away. I loved the writing, the cultural references, the way Dev explored loss/grief, mother-daughter relationships and intercultural relationships. The romance had me swooning (Emmitt was ๐Ÿ˜) and I had such a fantastic time reading this! Check out my review.

King of Battle and Blood (Adrian X Isolde) by Scarlett St. Clair โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜†
Like your paranormal fantasy with lots of vampires, witches and other monstrous creatures, plus a heavy dose of smutty romance? Look no further! I have to say, this had a lot of similarities to JLA’s From Blood and Ash books but I enjoyed this one SO much more. Can’t wait for more! ๐Ÿ˜ RTC.

Heartstopper Vol. 1 + Vol. 2 by Alice Oseman โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…
This was, simply put, too precious. Oh my goodness, I absolutely love Nick and Charlie and their wholesomeness. They are so so sweet and I just… I am loving this graphic novel so much! I really tried to slow my roll and not plow through all four volumes right awayโ€”it took herculean effort on my part ๐Ÿ˜‚. I just don’t want this series to end! RTC.

Now and Then (Now #1) by Brenda Rothert โ˜…โ˜†โ˜†โ˜†โ˜†
I discovered this title in my collection after cataloguing all my eBooks a few days ago and I read it to fulfill a POPSUGAR prompt. Honestly, I should’ve DNF’d it. The heroine is probably one of my least favourite heroines ever? I hated how she pushed her insecurities on others and let herself be a doormat for those who treated her like dirt. Plus, the way she kept pushing the hero away was just… No, ma’am. I was fuming lol! Not. My. Jam!!! ๐Ÿ˜”

Crushing by Sophie Burrows โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜†
A quiet but gorgeous graphic novel that explores solitude and loneliness. There’s no dialogue in this story but these pictures speak a thousand words (as cheesy as that sounds)! It’s so realistic and relatable. I highly recommend it! Check out my review.

Silent Blade (Kinsmen #1) by Ilona Andrews โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ
This was my first book by IA and I’m so excited to read more from them! The sci-fi and romance aspects were well-balanced and though the plot centered on revenge was pretty simple, it was very enjoyable! I loved Meli and

Post divider: What're you currently reading?

I’m currently reading Bound by Firelight, book two of the Wickery Duology. I loved Aadra and Jatin in the first book and there’s so much making me angry for them in this sequelโ€”oof, I can’t wait to see how everything gets resolved! It’s tense but also very exciting.

Post divider: what will you read next?

I have a few tour reads I need to get done but otherwise, I have no idea what my mood will dictate! LOL

What’re you currently reading? Have you read any of these books or are they also on your TBR? Happy reading! ๐Ÿ˜
