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 three books. I actually DNF’d one book this week and I also wished that I had DNF’d another one of the books that I read but other than that, it was a great reading week!
The Girl Who Fell Beneath the Sea by Axie Oh ★★★★★
This is one of my favourite fantasies this year. It had absolutely gorgeous writing, fantastical folklore, vivid world-building with strong Spirited Away vibes, a swoontastic romance, and wonderful characters. I highly recommend it! 💜
(ARC) Not Betting on Forever (Single Ladies of Lakeside #1) by Natasha Moore ★★☆☆☆
Sadly, this wasn’t my jam. I felt zero chemistry between our MCs nor did I care about any of the other characters. For characters who were supposedly more mature (40+), these two acted like horny teenagers and the forbidden trope that I thought I’d be okay with simply didn’t work for me. Check out my review!
(ARC) Royally Not Ready by Meghan Quinn ★★★★☆
This was a fun and sexy read that I sped through in one sitting. Lilly and Keller had a slightly forbidden frenemies-to-lovers romance that was full of banter, heartfelt talks and STEAM. Let me tell ya friends, their dynamic hotted up my Kindle real good! 🔥 If you’re not a fan of too much steam, this won’t be your jam, lol. My review is out tomorrow!
I’ve got two reads on at the minute. I started You Made A Fool of Death With Your Beauty by Akwaeke Emezi earlier this week and I read 30% in one sitting cos it’s so readable but something I didn’t expect was introduced so I stopped. I’m not a fan of this trope so I was kinda ‘eh’ about continuing despite loving Emezi’s writing. I actually had plans to finish it today but alas, it didn’t happen…
I’m also buddy reading The Dragon’s Promise by Elizabeth Lim, with Leslie. I’m at 41% and I’m enjoying it and I can’t wait to see where it goes!
What’re you currently reading? Have you read any of these books or are they also on your TBR? Happy reading, friends! 😍
