WWW Wednesday: I read 11 Books for the Start of 2022

Hello everyone,

It’s my first WWW Wednesday of this year! I’m happy to report that my reading has been going amazingly well! So many great books and already two that I think are the best books I’ve read yet! Let’s dive right into it shall we?

What did I finish reading?

This was a dnf at forty percent. I tried but I just wasn’t hooked as much as I’d hoped to be! 3 ⭐
5 ⭐! Glorious! Awe inspiring perfection! This is so far my most favorite read of the year!!! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
I hadn’t realized this was a kids book but it had a good message and lovely artwork. 5 ⭐
5 ⭐!!! Such a cool concept and such tension! 💜
This was okay. I may need a reread to fully think my rating over. 3 ⭐
2 ⭐. Dnf. The pacing for this was weak and I didn’t much like the characters. Interesting concept for the bad guy though. Not terrible writing but definitely needs an editor. Kindle freebie I got years ago and read on a whim.
5 ⭐! This was way better than I thought it would be! I adore Scottish mysteries though the ending felt abrupt this was still quite fun!

What am I currently reading?

Not a lot at the moment. I still have my Jade City buddy read going. I’m at page 82 and nowhere close to halfway lol. I also have these I’m reading:

What am I reading next?

I honestly have no idea. I’m trying to get books that have been on my tbr a while, even as I mix it with new releases to keep things fresh. Aside from Jade City, I’m mood reading right now before I start seriously tackling my enormous arc pile on Netgalley! February is going to be the start of my #ArcApocalypse again I think. Still feeling things out as I don’t want to have as many slumps as I did last year. This year I plan on doing things a bit different. WWW Wednesday once a month, maybe. And more book reviews. I’m still organizing. I also got a new phone so I have been transferring everything too which is fun…so many things to do! I hope everyone has been reading well at the start of the new year.

Until next time,

WWW Wednesday: I read 6 books since the last time I did this.

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another WWW Wednesday! I skipped last week’s because I hadn’t read but a single book and I just wasn’t in the mood for posting anything. This one isn’t much better in that I read five books + a short story. I have a couple new favorites and a lot of dnf’s. Let’s just get to it shall we?

What did I finish reading?

I’m struggling against a reading slump. Again. I’ve three books before I hit 250 books on my Goodreads goal. I’m hoping to get some reading in the next two days before the new year. I should manage it. Here’s what I’ve recently finished reading:


What am I currently reading?

What am I going to read next?

I’m in such a fantasy mood right now! Finally!!! I’m doubtful that I can read any of these before the end of the year but I’m still including these as my “potentials”. I know Knights Shadow is not the first but I want to read the whole series; same for the others! I’m hoping that next year I will be back into reading with fewer slumps! Doubtful but hopeful! What did you read since last Wednesday? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

WWW Wednesday: I Somehow Read 8 books this week? 🤷

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to another www wednesday where I tell you all about what I managed to read last week. I somehow managed to read 8 books. Amazing. Though none were five stars a lot were good. A few were dnf’s. But let’s start with what I’m currently reading shall we?

What am I Currently Reading?:

All of these are ebooks and I’m currently waiting for my kindle to charge so that I can keep reading lol. I just started the Keening and it’s about 300 pages I think anyway and it’s a recent release. I should finish it fast soon as my kindle is charged. The others I plan to read immediately after if I can without family pestering me during the holidays coming lol.

What did I finish reading?:

The best book was Caressed by Ice by Nalini Singh at 4.5 stars. The worst book that I dnf’d was Life Class. I just didn’t care for it at all. I also read Skin of the Sea by Natasha Bowen and gave it 4 stars. And another book but I can’t remember which one lol.

What will I read next?

For ebooks I already answered up above but here’s the physical books that I hope to read soon:

Yes, yes I know! I’m still behind on all these big fantasies but honestly I’ve been reading on my kindle more lately more than I have physical books. I’m hoping to get to these soon, but I’m behind again on Netgalley too. So I’m unsure how my reading will turn out by the end of the year. How’s your reading going? Make your Goodreads goal yet? I only have ten books left to reach 250 books read for the year! I’m hoping to reach it!

Until next time, happy holidays everyone!

WWW Wednesday: I managed to read 2 Books and four short stories

Hello everyone,

How is it already another Wednesday? I feel like this week slipped by faster than usual but I somehow managed to get some reading done. I read four amazing Tor short stories and two books. I’m currently reading two other books too. Let’s see what all I’ve read! (Side note: I can’t get pictures of the short stories that I read. Apologies.)

What am I currently reading?

I just started two books and I hope to finish at least one by tomorrow! The last books I started in the previous WWW are ongoing as well but these are what I’m actually reading for now. Here’s what I’m reading:

What did I finish reading?

Honestly not a lot, lol. One was a two star read and White Smoke was four stars.

What will I read next?

I have quite a hefty list of books I want to read this week and I’m hoping to be able to get through them this time. I’m tired of making plans and not following through. Here’s my stack of next week’s tbr:

I’m seriously setting time up for getting through all these books. I have several plans and upcoming reviews that I’d like to do as well. I’m also hoping to start next year with a series of reviewing Tor short fiction. Until then though, I’m going to hopefully get a move on and actually read some of these books! How’s your reading progressing? Read anything good? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

Top Books I Forgot To Read: The 2021 Edition

Hello Everyone,

I’m always forgetting about new releases, super hyped books, and just not completing my TBR’s that I’ve made. This past year I’ve dnf’d more books, I have changed my mind on several, I’ve put aside a book never to pick it up again because I forgot about it… the list of reasons is endless. And my stress has made it harder to focus on reading this year thanks to a multitude of reasons I’m sure we can all relate. But I decided a fun thing to do for the last month of the year was combine the top “forgotten” books and try to get to them before the years end. It’s unlikely that I will but regardless…lists are fun and an excellent means of procrastination in actually reading.

Okay, to be fair I waited on reading Jade City until the trilogy was complete but the rest I just completely forgot about. Red Knight by Miles Cameron is also a thick book as is most of these that I chose. I think that the one I’m most intrigued by is Last Song Before Night. Such a lovely cover but I can say the same thing about most all these books. And a few of these do seem winter themed so perfect timing. Which one should I make a priority I wonder? 🤔

I hope to get to these before the end of the year but my tbr is already quite large so I’m not holding my breath. I wish everyone else happy reading and good luck with their own tbr goals.

Until next time,

2021 December TBR: The Hardest TBR to Make of the Year

Hello Everyone,

I have all these (above) as my hopeful tbr for December but there’s loads of others to that I hope to get to. Every month I have a tbr I don’t stick too but I hope to get to anyway. This month is more ambitious than usual as it’s the last month of the year so I have those 35 books plus these additional ones if possible:

Not to mention these library books that I have checked out:

I’m very hopeful that this month won’t be slumpy like the last year has been. I’m hoping that next year reading will be easier as will reviewing. I wish everyone well with their last month tbr of the year!

Happy reading,

Google Tells Me What to Read: Top Fantasy Books of 2021

Hello Everyone,

I decided to try a fun thing where Google tells me what to read for a week. I have most of these but a couple of them I may need to request from my local library or see if it’s available on kindle unlimited. I hope to finish all these in a week! Wish me luck!

Discussion (Part Two): Series/Authors Backlist Titles To Focus On for 2022 (A Hefty List Continued!)

Hello Everyone,

As I’m writing this, the year is wrapping rapidly to a close and I’m still reading quite a bit. I plan to get a lot more serious in reading and reviewing next year as this past year I had a bit of a hiatus. Now it’s time to focus on my blog once again, and that means making priorities of book series to complete/finish for the next year. Here’s more authors and series I’m determined to get to!

Obviously I have quite a bit of books. 55 exactly on this list. I don’t have all of them listed that are on my wishlist that would take up far, far too much space. I’m not going to type up the list but if you want titles feel free to ask and I shall send you the titles in the comments. What’s on your tbr for next year? Anything good?

Until next time,

TBR BOOKS: 100+ Books I STILL Haven’t Read

Hello Everyone,

I’m sure we’re all guilty of having books on our shelves languishing on our shelves, sitting and waiting with accusing eyes. I’ve easily got several dozen that I am guilty of not reading yet. Here’s a bit of a list of all that I’m hoping to get to soon! So settle in, bring up Goodreads, and be prepared to add books to your TBR!

TBR BOOKS:

Many of these I’m embarrassed that I still haven’t read them! I’m always looking at other books or arcs that are priorities and many of these I just don’t have and need my library to access them. Which ones should I focus on? Also? Final count for all of this is 125 books. Ouch. There’s more but these are top of my tbr pile for now. I’m hoping to get to them soon.

Until next time,

WWW Wednesday: Books and a short story

Hello Everyone,

I haven’t read a whole lot since last Wednesday/Saturday post, but I still managed to squeeze in a few things!

What Have I Read?:

Okay, so I read two books, a novella and a Tor short fiction piece. More than I thought but still not a lot. One book isn’t featured because I don’t have the cover to add and that’s Snapped by CM Sutter. All of these were four/five ⭐ so that’s awesome. Hopefully the coming week is good too.

What am I Currently Reading?:

The Jasmine Throne is a buddy read, and the others I’m working on for #BeatingtheBacklist. I’m hopeful to finish these, and so far enjoying Jasmine Throne and Vast Black a lot!

What am I Reading Next?:

My fantasy mood has returned with a vengeance and my slump seems to be finally gone!!! These are what I’m hopeful for but I do read by mood and I am waiting for library copies of some of these too. Hoping to read lots next week and write more reviews too! How is your reading going? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,
