WWW Wednesday #41

WWW-wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Samanneelizabeth, it’s all about, what we are: Currently, Just Finished and About to Read

It’s been a hectic few weeks for us. With classes and restructuring our site, Carmen and I have taken on a lot at once. We’re lucky to have books, even more so during quarantine. Books are a great escape from reality, it has always been mine, especially when I’m feeling overwhelmed.

Needless to say, I did a fair bit of reading before bed last week.

What are you currently reading?

The Bride Test by Helen Hoang

I’m technically still reading The Bride Test. I’m sure once I get into it I’ll enjoy it. The problem is that I just don’t have the time to make the investment. And an investment it is, Kai has asperger’s and his mom went to Vietnam to find him a bride. I’m insanely curious to see how this bought and paid for bride wins the heart of a man who doesn’t think he has one.

Having read Helen Hoang’s previous book, The Kiss Quotient, I know I’m going to enjoy this. I just don’t want to do it a disservice by half-paying attention.

Spring Strings by Lily Morton

I’ve been on a LOT of M/M Romance books lately. “Spring Stringswas a part of a Spring Fling short story give away from May 1-7, so I snagged a copy to read for later. When I saw the author’s name I knew I was going to read it. Lily Morton’s books are funny and entertaining and the men have an English accent (just imagining it is hot). They’re a quick read when you have a lot going on. Last summer, I went on a Lily Morton kick, they were light, easy and steamy.

Again she didn’t disappoint when I was looking for a little distraction. Review to come soon!

• What do you think you’ll read next?

The purpose of this blog is to motivate us to read the books on our TBR list. So, I’m going to read Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park which has been on my list since December 27, 2013 *wince*

Not going to lie, I feel like I have outgrown YA novels. That’s one of the reasons for this book being on my TBR list for so long. However, Carmen and quite a few other adults love reading YA so I thought I’d kill two birds with one stone and give Eleanor & Park a chance and maybe not steer so clear of them in the future.

The Double by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

I’ll be reading Fyodor Dostoyevsky this week for my Literature of the Fantastic’s course.

So far I am reading and watching books and films that are classified as horror which is NOT my go-to but I don’t really have a choice now do I?

Eleanor & Park will be a welcome respite from the doozy I’m sure this will be.

That’s what’s going on with me book wise, what about you?

WWW Wednesday #40

WWW-wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Samanneelizabeth, it’s all about, what we are: Currently, Just Finished and About to Read

We are so excited for another WWW Wednesday to talk to you all about what were currently reading. So without further ado, let’s get into this week’s WWW Wednesday:

What are you currently reading?

Trolling through the free section of Apple books I stumbled upon this book and I’m lovin it. To Seduce a Witch’s Heart is a supernatural romance with some great characters. Rhun is a hot, anal retentive, slightyl geeky demon recently released from prison by Merle. Merle is a witch with a big problem, her sister is missing and the only one who can help, get her back is Rhun. I should probably mention that demons and witches are mortal enemies. what results is a hiliarious forced proximity, enemies to lovers romance with some truly fantastic banter. – Carmen

• What did you recently finish reading?

The Turn of the Screw is a ghost story that we both had to read for a class.
I can say that I didn’t really enjoy this book, the way it was written was super confusing and it took me a while to get through it. I was falling asleep but not because I was tired. – Carmen

• What do you think you’ll read next?

For pleasure, I’ll be reading The Honey Don’t List by Christina Lauren. This writing duo has produced some of my favourite romances; taking common tropes and exploring them in unique ways. So I’m super excited to finally read thier newest book, which I’ve been waiting to get access from my local library’s app for two months! – Carmen

For class, I need to read The Double by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. From my understanding this is a sort of thriller with elements of the fantastic. I know Dostoyvesky’s works are considered classics but I’m a little trepidatious as psychological thrillers (which I think this) are not generally my forte. -Carmen
