Welcome to WWW Wednesday!

WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words. The purpose is to share what I’ve reading lately. The three W’s stand for:

What did you recently finish reading?
What are you currently reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?


Recently Read

This week I read The Fire (The Hurricane, #4), an ARC of The Wives, The Guy on the Left (The Underdogs, #2), and The Coppersmith Farmhouse (Jamison Valley, #1).

Sadly, I had to DNF In Peace Lies Havoc (Midnight Mayhem, #1)Β fairly close to the beginning. I was having trouble getting into the dark romance.

I also listened to the memoirs Inside Out and Sounds Like Me: My Life (So Far) in Song).

Currently Reading

I’m reading The Clover Chapel (Jamison Valley, #2).

I’ve been in the mood to listen to memoirs recently, so I decided to start Kicking and Dreaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll.

Reading Next

My plan is to continue on reading the Jamison Valley series with book 3, The Lucky Heart. I am going to try to make it a priority to finish this series before the end of the month.

This week I had a ton of time to read with the holiday. I read ARCs of The Lineup and Landon & Shay: Part 2, the Christmas in the City and All Wrapped Up for the Holidays anthologies, a library copy of Gypsy King (Tin Gypsy, #1), and Forever Right Now.


I also finished up listening to The How & the Why while doing some holiday baking and after holiday cleaning. I tried to listen to The Starless Sea, but sadly I couldn’t get into it. I was so lost that I decided to DNF it. Reading the book might be better than listening to this one.

Currently Reading

I’m reading Someday, Someday. It has ties to Forever Right Now, which I just finished up reading.

Reading Next

I had all sorts of plans to read an ARC or something off my TBR. I’m not sure if I am going with that plan or not. I think I need something super fluffy, so I might go romantic comedy or pick up a holiday read.

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I’m Thankful For

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is:

Thankful Freebie: Ten Books I’m Thankful For

1. Bright Side
Author: Kim Holden

There’s a big message in this book that spoke to me. It made me think about how I live my life and how I want to.

2. The Other Side
Author: Kim Holden

Another Kim Holden book…This one was a good reminder to me that you can’t judge a book or someone by their cover.

3. Far from the Tree
Author: Robin Benway

I’m an adoptee and while I hadn’t been through what these characters had been through, I could identify with some of their thoughts. For some reason, that brought me some peace.

4. Me Before You
Author: Jojo Moyes

I am thankful for this book because it made me reexamine some of my personal beliefs.

5. The Villa
Author: Nora Roberts

I am thankful for all of the Nora Roberts’ books I have read, but this is the one I feel like really got me into reading as an adult.

6. Slammed
Author: Colleen Hoover

It’s not my favorite CoHo book, but it’s the first one I read and it is the book that introduced me to CoHo’s writing which got me into New Adult romance.

7. Always Time to Die
Author: Elizabeth Lowell

This was the first audiobook I ever listened to. My old boss let me borrow it and I was hooked not only on Elizabeth Lowell romantic suspense but on listening to audiobooks on my commute home.

8. Tapping the Billionaire
Author: Max Monroe

I’m thankful for this book because it’s over the top funny. Sometimes I just need a good laugh and reading this book gave me an author to look for when I need a pick me up read.

9. Grip
Author: Kennedy Ryan

Grip beautifully encompassed so many important issues like racial profiling, interracial relationships, family and forgiveness. It taught me so much while making me feel so much.

10. Nine Minutes
Author: Beth Flynn

This book taught me to 1. not judge a book by its cover, and 2. to challenge myself by picking up books that might make me uncomfortable.

I started this week with two connected YA books, Girl at Heart and One of the Girls. Then I read ARCs of Echoes Between Us and Would Like to Meet. I also read Hindsight: And All the Things I Can’t See In Front of Me. It was like 80% pictures and most of the rest was fluff. Finally, I read Conheartists.

Currently Reading

I’m reading The Rebel King (All the King’s Men Duet, #2)

.

Reading Next

Next up should be an ARC of Enemies.

To start out the week, I went back to my TBR and picked the book that has been on it the longest. It was He Will Be My Ruin. I hate to say it, but it wasn’t my favorite and I DNF’d it. I did skip to the end and found out what the twist was. I had better luck after that reading Southern Heartbreaker (Charleston Heat, #4), Crazy for Loving You (Bluewater Billionaires), and ARCs of The One for You (The Ones Who Got Away, #4) and Regretting You.


I also listened to Next Year in Havana. So good, you guys!

I’m reading an ARC of The Map from Here to There (The Start of Me and You, #2).

I’m also listening to When We Left Cuba.

Reading Next

I’m not sure what I’ll read next. It will either be a NetGalley ARC or something off my TBR.

Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books I Recently Took Off My TBR and Why

Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish and is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is:

Favorite Bookmarks

Honestly, I don’t have any favorite bookmarks. I’m sure I could search online for some, but that seems like wasting some time. Instead, I’m going with

Ten Books I Recently Took Off My TBR and Why

The first 3 books were on the Huffington Post’s Oh, You Little Heartbreaker! The Ultimate List of Ugly Novels back in 2017. I had planned to read every book on the list. I got through most of them. Recently, I decided that I didn’t need to finish the list. The remaining books were ones that sounded good, but I just didn’t have interest in reading them. Plus, they weren’t available from my library.

1. Fighting Redemption

2. Against All Odds

3. 120 Days…

Number 4 is a book a might decide to go back an read at some time. I think it’s still on my Kindle. I have loved this author’s books that I have read, but I just see myself picking it up anytime soon.

4. Beloved

I’m a fan of Claire Contreras’ books and wanted to read her entire back list. When I looked at reviews for this book/series, I realized that maybe I should stick to her newer releases.

5. The Devil’s Contract

Don’t yell at me too much for this one, friends. I’m not big into historical fiction, so I took this book off my TBR. That doesn’t mean I won’t eventually read it if in the mood. I just didn’t want to feel pressure to read it. I know that Amy Harmon can do no wrong.

6. From Sand and Ash

This is probably considered more of a DNF than a taking off the TBR, but I just couldn’t get into this book no matter how much I love Maggie Stiefvater’s writing. Off the TBR it goes. I do own it, so maybe someday? *Shrugs*

7. All Crooked Saints

I just don’t have a desire to read this one anymore. I’m not sure why.

8. RoomHate

I just decided that I am probably never going to get these books because they’re so long and there are so many of them. I’ve been avoiding them forever, so it was time to give up.

9. Outlander

Another don’t hate me one… I took THUG off my TBR so I wouldn’t feel pressure to read it. I own a physical copy, so I will most likely read it someday. I just felt pressure to read it every time I looked at it and that made me not want to read it. Maybe I’m scared of the hype or something. I feel like I need to love it.

So… are there any of these you think I just HAVE to put back on my TBR? Tell me why!

What did you recently finish reading?
What are you currently reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?


Recently Read

I read a lot this past week mostly because I hurt my knee and I’ve been trying to stay off it and let it heal. I started this week reading November ARCs. I read Man Cuffed (Man Hands, #4) and Beard Necessities (Winston Brothers, #6). I also read a couple of books off my TBR: Eyes on MeΒ and I Know You Remember. I finished up the week with 2020 ARCs of Love Her or Lose Her (Hot & Hammered, #2) and Lucky Caller.


Currently Reading

I started reading Flight Patterns which has been on my TBR since it came out in 2016. Then I got an ARC of The Billionaire’s Forbidden Little Sister that I needed to read sooner than later, so I started that one too. Normally I’m not big on reading two books at once, but sometimes you just have to.

Reading Next

I’m not sure what I’ll read next. It will either be a NetGalley ARC or something off my TBR.
