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 six books. They were all romances, mostly holiday ones, and I loved almost all of them!
Homecoming King (Three Kings #1) by Penny Reid ★★★★☆
I wanted more the minute this book ended! I was hooked from the very first page and I loved Rex and Abby together. The sexual tension and (mutual) pining was intense! 🥵 I was sad Rex didn’t get a POV because that would’ve made it a solid 5-star read for me but I couldn’t be happier with their slightly cheesy but adorable HEA. RTC
Dipped in Holly by Dana Isaly ★★★★☆
Isaly delivers with a very steamy and kinky age-gap romance that admittedly had me hooked from the beginning. Even though there’s very limited character development, I really liked Nick & Holly together and I wouldn’t be mad reading more about them? If you’re looking for a fun and fast little holiday romance with a whole lot of steam, I’d recommend checking this out! RTC
The Plight Before Christmas by Kate Stewart ★★★★☆
I didn’t realise this was by Kate Stewart until I got to the end and then I realised why I enjoyed it so much! I’m so glad Deanna recommend this to me 😊 Eli and Whitney go through one helluva heartwrenching romance full of angst and pining and I couldn’t be happier that they got the HEA they deserved. Plus, I absolutely adored the Collins family 🥰 RTC
Merry Inkmas by Talia Hibbert ★★★☆☆
Sadly, this one was a bit of a miss for me. I enjoyed the characters for the most part but the classic Hibbert spark was missing! There was some cute banter but there were too many hot/cold (very cold) moments between the H/h that didn’t work for me. It was a bit long for a novella as well so I’m disappointed that the characters didn’t get the development I think they deserved. RTC
Twelve Naughty Days (Anthology) by K.A. Linde ★★★★☆
This anthology was delightfully steamy, slightly kinky and moderately taboo and I really enjoyed more than half of the stories—which I consider a win for me! I’ve been meaning to try some of these authors and I’m even more eager to check out their full-length novels asap! RTC
Krampus and the Crone (Horned Holidays #1) by Honey Phillips ★★★☆☆
I was curious about this cos I wanted to know how something as scary as Krampus could be made sexy. Phillips didn’t do a bad job of turning Krampus into a kind-hearted albeit very serious alien who fell for an ostracized witch and who took a pair of siblings away from an unhappy home situation. Though I didn’t feel attached to either H/h I liked how the author twisted Krampus lore!
I’m currently reading Before Girl by Kate Canterbary and I’m kinda sad to say I’m struggling. I love a romance where the hero falls first and pines deeply for the heroine but I’m also finding both H/h’s personalities slightly too chaotic for me? I sadly haven’t connected with them and I’m tempted to DNF… But I’ve also spent all day speed reading hoping it’ll get better and don’t want to lose all that time I invested. I might just skim the rest? Not sure! 😅
Anything is possible, especially in my current mood! 😂
What’re you currently reading? Have you read any of these books or are they also on your TBR? Happy reading! 😍
