WWW Wednesday!

Hello lovelies!

It’s time for WWW Wednesday! This meme was originally hosted by A Daily Rhythm but was revived by Sam from Taking on a World of WordsIt’s a place to talk about the books you’ve been reading, plan to read and have read. I don’t usually keep track of my reading, except for my Goodreads Challenge, but I’ve found this meme to be really helpful with keeping me on track.

To take part all you have to do is answer the following questions:

What are you currently reading?

What have you recently finished reading?

What are you going to read next?

The time has finally come to finish off the Territorial Mates series I’ve been reading since earlier in the year. I received an ARC copy of the first book on a whim and was completely blown away by how deceptively good this series is. Seriously, if you’re in the mood for a slow-burn reverse harem story, this is the series for you!

High Fire is my first journey in to Eoin Colfer’s world of writing and at 20% through, I’ve just started to get the hang of his writing style. It took me a little while to get in to the story but since then it’s really picked up in pace and intrigue. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the story entails!

So this was a mixed bag of recent reads. My Best Friend’s Royal Wedding was an enjoyable read with a setting that captured my attention and made me wistfully want to re-watch all of the Princess Diaries movies again. There were a few issues I had with the character development though, that I’ll discuss in an upcoming review.

Things You Save in a Fire is arguably one of the absolute best books I have read this year. I flew through this book in one sitting and I still can’t stop thinking about it. For anyone who was on the fence about this, all I have to say to you is: READ IT.

Although I have what feels like a million ARCs to read, I’ve been anticipating reading these two books for a while now. A Thousand Perfect Notes has a special place on my TBR list as C.G Drews is a fellow blogger and it’s always so encouraging to see others succeed in their chosen career. One of Us is Lying comes highly recommended (it seems like everyone has read this book) and I’m keen to see where the murder mystery leads!

// have you read any of these books? what were your thoughts on them? //

    1. Aww we missed you (and blogging) too!! I’m looking forward to catching up on yours and Juliets posts! 😄 it was a pretty good read actually. Kind of reminded me of the vibe in Princess Diaries a bit. That was my dream as a kid 😂😂 Jen

  1. YOU’RE BACK YOU’RE BACK! I’ve missed yous! 😍 I’m so glad to hear that you loved Things You Save In A Fire! I really enjoyed it too and can’t wait to read her first book (which I heard some people say was even better)! Keen to see what you think of One of Us Is Lying. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it — I literally read it one sitting coz I couldn’t put it down! Happy reading, Jen 💙

    1. WE’RE BACK!! 😁🙌 honestly it was so hard not being able to blog. We’ve missed it (and everyone) so much. Chatting about books is one of the best parts of our day. I can’t wait to try another book by Centre. Things You Save in a Fire stole my heart completely. It’s similar to Consumed by J R Ward and amazing 😍😍 I’m really keen to try One of Us is Lying – so many people love it!! Jen

  2. I’ve read Highfire and I wasn’t a fan. I get the appeal but it just wasn’t for me or my sense of humor, lol. I also tried one of his middle grades and I just don’t think he is an author for me. I hope you continue to enjoy it!

    1. Yeah I had a bit of difficulty getting in to the book with the writing style. There were A LOT of double negatives intentionally used and it broke my flow in reading. Hopefully it gets easier to read further in. I can see why his writing might not have been a favourite for you though! Jen
