#WWWWednesday: 21 September 2022

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:

  1. What did you read last?
  2. What are you currently reading?
  3. What will you read next?

Since last week I’ve managed to finish four books. Romance has taken over my reading list because that’s pretty much all my brain can seem to absorb these days. I’m loving it though (mostly, anyway)!

Flawless (Chestnut Springs #1) by Elsie Silver ★★★★☆
This is a frenemies-to-lovers romance set in a small Canadian town and the MMC was a bull rider! This had fun banter and great chemistry but I’m still kinda on the fence about the conflict and how it was resolved. The reactions were true to character but also gave me slightly ick feelings.

Juniper Hill (The Edens #2) by Devney Perry ★★★★☆
I finally read this single parent small town romance and it was as good as the hype made it out to be! It was a little bit dramatic and ‘woe is me’ at times but I loved the chemistry between Memphis and Knox and the Edens and town setting were great.

Garnet Flats (The Edens #3) by Devney Perry ★★★½
I picked this up immediately after Juniper Hill and sadly, didn’t love this second chance romance as much as the first book. I enjoyed it while reading it but several things didn’t add up—like the reason for the initial break up—and there was not enough grovelling, damnit!

In a Jam by Kate Canterbary ★★★★½
I feel like I’ve been going on about Daddy Bread Baker a lot this week and for good reason. This had exquisite banter, awesome friendships, the most hilarious little pirate girl, and Kindle-melting hot chemistry and steam. Check out my review!

I’m still buddy reading Wolfsong by TJ Klune with Leslie and Destiny. I’m about 42% in and loving it but also hating it because this author makes me care SO MUCH about these characters and welp, my heart! 🥺

📖 SYNOPSIS

Ox Matheson was twelve when his father taught him a lesson: Ox wasn’t worth anything and people would never understand him. Then he left.

Ox was sixteen when the energetic Bennett family moved in next door, harbouring a secret that would change him forever. For the family are shapeshifters, who can transform into wolves at will. Drawn to their magic, loyalty and enduring friendships, Ox feels a gulf between this extraordinary new world and the quiet life he’s known. He also finds an ally in Joe, the youngest Bennett boy. Joe is charming and handsome, but haunted by scars he cannot heal.

Ox was twenty-three when murder came to town, and tore a hole in his heart. Violence flared, tragedy split the pack and Joe left town, leaving Ox behind. Three years later, the boy is back. Except now he’s a man – and Ox can no longer ignore the song that howls between them.

Wolfsong is the first book in the Green Creek series by bestselling author TJ Klune. Continue the journey with Ravensong.

I’m also currently reading my ARC of Soul of the Deep by Natasha Bowen for a blog tour next week. The story picks up right where Skin of the Sea ends and I have a feeling things are ramping up to something big soon!

📖 SYNOPSIS

The highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestseller Skin of the Sea, in which the world must pay the price for one mermaid’s choice, and a dark force reverberates across realms. Perfect for fans of Children of Blood and Bone and those eagerly anticipating the live-action film adaptation of The Little Mermaid.

One life. One choice. One sacrifice.

To save those closest to her, Simi traded away everything: her freedom, her family, and the boy she loves. Now she is sworn to serve a new god, watching over the Land of the Dead at the bottom of the ocean.

But when signs of demons begin to appear, it’s clear there are deeper consequences of Simi’s trade. These demons spell the world’s ruin . . . and because of Simi, they now have a way into the human realm.

With the fate of the world at stake, Simi must break her promise and team up with a scheming trickster of a god. And if they succeed, perhaps Simi can also unbreak her heart along the way, and find herself again.

What’re you currently reading? Have you read any of these books or are they also on your TBR? Happy reading, friends! 😍

  1. I keep neglecting Nghi Vob because I’m like “they’re so short I can read them anytime!” But I keep forgetting. Also wow those are some snazzy collapsible synopsis sections you got there 😉😁 Good idea using them that way, I may borrow that!

    • JENNIFER, I’m like… 1000% abusing this new knowledge you’ve given me for the collapsible html, hahaha 😂 I’m not even kidding, I’m using it everywhere and LOVING IT!
