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:
- What did you read last?
- What are you currently reading?
- What will you read next?
Since last week, I’ve managed to finish 6 books! Three of these were novella length books in a series so they were pretty fast reads. I also finally managed to tick off a highly anticipated romcom from my TBR and it was every bit as wonderful as everyone said it would be!
His Only Wife by Peace Adzo Medie ★★★★½
This was such a powerful and fantastic debut from Medie. I didn’t have any expectations going into it but Medie reeled me in with her witty prose and wowed me with how she brought Ghana to life. I felt so much emotion while reading this book and I became so invested in Afi’s story. This is one you shouldn’t let slip past your radar! Read my review
Fable (Fable #1) by Adrienne Young ★★★★★
Fable has been one of my most anticipated 2020 releases and it did not disappoint! Young paints a gritty cut-throat pirate ruled world and she doesn’t pull any punches. Fable is such a tough MC with a resilient spirit who I became so invested in. Unsurprisingly, I loved the found-family vibes with the crew + the romance was a satisfying slow burn. I’d definitely recommend it! Read my review
Empire of Lies Series by Whitney G. ★★★☆☆
It’s been a while since I’ve read anything by Whitney G. and while this had her touch of steaminess, it was also a big departure from her usual–which she does state at the start of each book. It was a much darker read but I did enjoy the ‘big twist’ in book one as it did surprise me! Following that though, everything became predictable. While we learn a lot more about our MCs separately, we don’t get to see how their relationship grows so quickly, so I felt their romance was more “insta” and sadly underdeveloped. Overall though, I appreciated the concept and it was the palate cleanser I needed before my next read!
Get A Life, Chloe Brown by Talia Hibbert ★★★★☆
Your eyes are not deceiving you, friends. I have finally read this book and it was just as wonderful as everyone said it was! I loved getting to know Chloe and Red. Their awkward and hilarious internal dialogues, their cheeky banter and the sexual tension between these two were absolute fire! They both had painful pasts that made them wary of any happiness they might find in the present but I loved seeing them grow and heal together. As has been mentioned by many reviewers, the chronic illness rep in this book is pretty great and I really appreciated reading a romance about such realistic characters. Review coming soon!
I’ve been saying this for what feels like forever but my moods have been super whacky and that has really affected my reading. I’ve got a few reads going but have been mostly focusing on The House in the Cerulean Sea because I couldn’t put it down anymore, and I’ll likely finish it tonight! Don’t sleep on this one friends–I haven’t finished it yet but it’s set to be one of my favourite reads of 2020! I’ve also got The Beast and The Bethany, The Kingdom of Back, and Sometimes I Lie going. I am enjoying all of them but I am truly a slave to my moods.
I have absolutely no idea. I have quite the few blog tours booked in September but with my mood being all over the place, I don’t know what I feel like picking up next. I guess we’ll see once I finish the four other books that I’m reading 😊
How is your reading week going and what are you currently reading? Hope the rest of your week goes well!

I don’t know why, but I just liked Chloe Brown instead of loving it. I feel like I should have loved it. Maybe it was overhyped? I loved that Empire of Lies. I get what you mean about the insta in it, though. I just contributed that to the fact they’re novellas, I guess. It looks like you had a great reading week!
Oh gosh congrats on finishing so many books last week!! I’m hoping to pick up Fable soon since it’s gotten such great reviews! (:

I still need to read The House in the Cerulean Sea! It sounds so good. Glad you’re enjoying it! 🙂
I have The House in the Cerulean Sea on my tbr as well and apparently it’s just so good? Also, I loved The Beast and the Bethany. I’m so happy I was part of that booktour. 😀
