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?
It’s been a pretty good reading week if you see the numbers (11 books) but I only enjoyed less than half of them… I surprisingly read 3 audiobooks while painting and I realise that’s something I’d definitely love to continue doing! 😊
The Dark Side Series (Books 1-4) by Kristy Cunning ★★¾
This was not the series I thought it’d be and I was disappointed! It started off strong but this could’ve easily been a 2-novella series because a lot of it was filler, the explanations nonsensical and I got bored. The series more than lost its spark for me by the end!
The Deep by Rivers Solomon ★★★★½
My first audiobook of 2022 and it was wow! Daveed Diggs’ narration was *chefs kiss*! Check out my review!
Rare Danger: A Novella by Beverly Jenkins ★★★½
Jenkins balances the romance and suspense very well and even though the mystery was a bit outlandish and the romance was very instalove, I still really enjoyed it! The characters are actually very mature and I was here for it!
Punching the Air by Ibi Zoboi & Yusef Salaam ★★★★★
This was a punch to the gut? I listened to the audiobook as this is written in verse and Ethan Herisse perfectly captured the depth of emotions that runs through this story! As he speaks it, you have no choice but to feel everything! It’s tough to read but I’d recommend it.
Go Deep by Rilzy Adams ★★★★☆
Phew, talk about steamy 🥵 Navaya and Xander had a great friends-to-lovers romance that had me gripped and had me swooning! Rilzy Adams never fails to make me care about her characters in so short a time and I had so much fun with this story.
Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austen Collection: Audible Original) ★★★★☆
I felt like a comfort read so I decided to try this audiobook which has been on my TBR for a while. I enjoyed the performance although it was a bit flat at times but of course, I loved the story! ❤️
Reasonable Doubt Series (Books 1-3) by Whitney G. ★★★☆☆
Sometimes you just feel like a Whitney G. romance and this had been on my TBR for ages so I picked it up at random. This was an office romance with a thin plot and lots of smut and it was entertaining! 🤷🏻♀️
The Witch, The Sword, and The Cursed Knights by Alexandria Rogers ★★★☆☆
This took me ages to read and while it was an adventure-filled spin on Arthurian lore, I felt it suffered from trying to do too much at once. My review for the blog tour will go up tomorrow!
A lot has happened over the last two days at home which has made it very tough to focus on anything but I’m finally reading The Gilded Ones by Namina Forna (@39%). I’m buddy reading this with Leslie, and she’s been so patient with my slow progress, lol (thankyou❤️)! The pace is picking up now and I’m really getting into it!
The publisher sent me an eARC for Fake It Till You Bake It yesterday and I fell off my bed in shock! It’s one of my most anticipated romances this year and AAAH 😍
What’re you currently reading? Have you read any of these books or are they also on your TBR? Happy reading, friends! 😍
