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 managed to finish four books and I enjoyed all of them!
(ARC) The Miraculous Sweetmakers: The Frost Fair by Natasha Hastings ★★★★☆
This was a well-written, fast-paced and engaging MG historical fantasy with a unique plot full of ice-cold magical night-time adventures. It was darker than the cover makes it out to be but it was a great read! [CHECK OUT MY REVIEW]
(ARC) Rust in the Root by Justina Ireland ★★★★☆
This historical fantasy was a rich and entertaining read but while I loved the concept, I do think it had too much packed into it to do the world-building the justice it deserved. I would still recommend it cos I found it very unique! [CHECK OUT MY REVIEW]
A Promise of Fire (The Kingmaker Chronicles #1) by Amanda Bouchet ★★★★☆
I picked this up on a whim and I’m so glad I did. I’d recommend this if you kinda-sorta-maybe enjoyed FBAA and KoBaB but want something more humorous, witty, and well-written with characters that are easy to root for, and who won’t irritate you through to the afterlife with their incessant questions in lieu of poor world-building. 🙂
(ARC) Impeccable (The Phoenix Club #7) by Darcy Burke ★★★★☆
I’ve been a fan of Evie from the first book in this series so I’m glad that we finally get her romance, and what a sweet and wholesome yet steamy romance it was! 😍 I can’t think of anyone more perfect for Evie than Gregory—who’s one of the most caring and considerate heroes I’ve ever read about. I was smitten!
I’m currently reading THREE books—all are buddy reads!
- A Ruin of Roses by K.F. Breene → 36% → This was a random pick by one of my IRL besties who asked me last night if I wanted to read it with her. It’s a Beauty & the Beast shifter retelling? I don’t have many thoughts yet, lol.
- Babel by R.F. Kuang → 85% → BR with a group of bloggers → SO. MUCH. WOW! 🤯
- Wolfsong by TJ Klune → 42% → BR with Leslie & Destiny → Still haven’t picked it back up again…
What’re you currently reading? Have you read any of these books or are they also on your TBR? Happy reading, friends! 😍
