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 and some of these were really wild rides, lol.
(ARC) Belladonna (Belladonna #1) by Adalyn Grace ★★★★★
I’m The Ultimate Chicken™️ so this was entirely out of my comfort zone with all the ghosties but I loved it. It’s eerily gothic and hauntingly atmospheric with an intriguing mystery and a sweeping slow-burn romance! Check out my review.
(ARC) The Decoy Girlfriend by Lillie Vale ★★★½
I really enjoyed this celebrity romance ft. fake-dating and forced proximity. I thought the writing was witty and the characters were funny and had great chemistry all around, but some things didn’t entirely work for me… My review will be posted on Saturday!
(KU) Vicious Lost Boys Series #1 & #2 by Nikki St. Crowe ★★½
I was intrigued by the Peter Pan retelling premise but this turned out to be 90% smut that escalated very quickly! Nothing’s wrong with reading smut but sadly, I just didn’t care about anything, I didn’t find it “hot”, and I had hoped the second book would improve but it didn’t. This was simply just not my jam!
Signal Moon by Kate Quinn ★★★★☆
This was entirely too short at under 100pgs because I would’ve loved to keep reading about these characters! It’s clear Quinn has done her research and she’s passionate about history because it came through in the writing. I’m so glad I finally read one of Quinn’s books and I can’t wait to read one of her full-length novels!
(KU) Does It Hurt? by H.D. Carlton ★★½
Another one with a great premise but that ended up being 80% smut and a minor mystery/thriller plot. I didn’t really care for either of these characters and got frustrated by how they do nothing for a good chunk of the book except have sex, even in the most inappropriate moments. Their romance was also dark so definitely check out the content/trigger warnings!
I’m feeling a little restless at the moment so I’ve got four books on the go—two SFFs and two romances. I just picked up Sabriel this morning when I realised that the Old Kingdom Readalong hosted by Jordyn had already started (oops) but I still have time to catch up!
