#WWWWednesday: 10 August 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 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!

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. I was really on a romance kick and after finishing my last book, which was a regional romance, I kind of want to dive into all the histroms now!

(KU) Fake Empire by C.W. Farnsworth ★★★★☆
I was pleasantly surprised by this! Scarlett and Crew are both alpha bosses who are tired of the fakeness of the ultra-rich world they live in. I thought it would be hard to sympathise with them but I loved both of them and found myself really invested in their journeys. It was a little angsty, delightfully steamy, and definitely swoony! 😍

(KU) Sin Bin (Carolina Comets #4) by Teagan Hunter ★★★★☆
I always have a fun time with Hunter’s books and it was no different with Smith and Emilia’s story. It was a forbidden and age-gap romance which made it a little bit more angsty but it also turned the heat up really high! 🔥 These two had such great chemistry and I loved how the conflict with their relationship was handled. Where can I find a Smith? Also, I loved the inclusion of text messages in the story cos I feel it’s something Hunter does really well 😍

I’ve spent a good chunk of my Sunday reading Seven Days in June by Tia Williams. Leslie and I have been planning to read this together for ages and we finally decided to dive in yesterday! Ngl, I’m a little obsessed. It’s so raw and emotional and it has my feelings all tangled in a knot and sitting heavy in my chest and OOF, I love it! 🥹

  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.

(ARC) It’s All In How You Fall by Sarah Henning ★★★★☆ (rounded up)
This was a really cute summery sports-heavy YA contemporary with a super sweet romance and all the feel-good vibes! Check out my review

(KU) A Governess Should Never… Deny A Duke (The Governess Chronicles #2) by Emily Windsor ★★★★☆
Isabelle and Rhys have such great tension and I loved the mystery of their characters. The Welsh castle setting on the cliffs by the sea was gothic in its atmosphere and the secondary characters were such a fun and entertaining addition to the story. Isabelle and Rhys were both romantics at heart and oof, they had some heartpounding swoontastic moments!

I’ll be spending the rest of my Sunday night in bed starting Violet Made of Thorns by Gina Chen. I’m buddy reading this with Leslie and I’m so excited to dive in cos I’ve also heard some pretty good things about it. Plus, look at this gorgeous cover! 😍

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 two books. Its been a very slow reading week and it took me much longer than anticipated to finish the fantasy I was reading—not because I didn’t enjoy it because it’s top tier fantasy but I don’t think I was in the right headspace for it.

(ARC) The Jasmine Throne (Burning Kingdoms #1) by Tasha Suri ★★★★½ (rounded up)
This was an incredible epic fantasy that encompasses so many amazing magical, cultural and sociopolitical elements, however, it is quite the slow burn and quite the chonkster at close to 600 pages. I’m sad that I feel like I read this as the wrong time because it was such a patchy/ interrupted reading period but my brain is still in awe of this amazing Indian-inspired world Suri created. 🤯

(KU) A Governess Should Never... Tempt A Prizefighter (The Governess Chronicles #1) by Emily Windsor ★★★★☆
I forgot how much I enjoy Windsor’s historical romances but I’m glad this reminded me of it. This was witty, funny and heartfelt! Matilda and Seth have a beautifully soft and swoony romance and I loved their opposites-attract connection. Plus, I loved the father-daughter relationship between Seth and his daughter Chloe, and the connection that forms between her and Matilda!

I’ll be spending the rest of my Sunday night reading a historical romance that I recently added to my TBR: A Governess Should Never Tempt A Prizefighter by Emily Windsor. I’ve read two of Windsor’s books before and always enjoy her writing, characters and romance! This’ll be a nice break from the fantasy I’ve been reading lately.

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 three books: one MG fantasy, one romance, and one romantasy! It was a good mix this week! 😊

(ARC) Nura and the Immortal Palace by M.T. Khan ★★★★½ (rounded up)
This was a very unique middle-grade fantasy not just because of the diversity and representation in the story but also because of the real-world issues that it covers. If you love the magical aspect of the bathhouse in Spirited Away, you’ll definitely enjoy this magical hotel! Check out my review

The Inadequate Heir (The Bridge Kingdom #3) by Danielle L. Jensen ★★★½
I read this with Leslie and Julie and while we all enjoyed this, we didn’t love it as much. There’s nothing entirely ‘new’ that happens for a majority of the book because it runs in parallel with the events of the first two books but the ending is a great set-up for what feels like will be an intense book four!

I’ll be spending the rest of my Sunday night reading The Jasmine Throne. I’ve been looking forward to reading this for a while now because I’ve heard so many amazing things about it. I’m reading this with Jess and we’re both not far into it yet but I’m very intrigued so far and I can’t wait to read more!
