WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words! All you have to do is answers the following three questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
I am in a romance mood, so I have plans to read romance all week long, and I am vlogging it!
By the Book is a modern Beauty and the Beast retelling, and the nods to the Disney movie are hilarious and fun to find. I really like our main character, Isabelle (of course!), so far. I think the conversations about the struggle of working in publishing, especially as a person of colour, are very timely. I am about 70 pages in, and the Beast character is such a jerk, so I am curious to see how that all plays out.
I just started Thank You for Listening on audio this morning, so no thoughts just yet! I am excited to read something from Julia Whelan, as she is one of my favourite audiobook narrators.
I have been feeling a little bit slumpy lately, but that has definitely changed over the last week! I am so happy that I managed to finish four books.
The Hookup Plan by Farrah Rochon is the third book in the Boyfriend Project series. I really loved London’s story and I thought that she had great chemistry with the love interest, Drew. There is something about London that reminds me of friends I have in my real life, so I have a soft spot for her. I thought this book explored some interesting conversations about the relationships between fathers and daughters. I will post a full review soon!
I have such mixed feelings about Hook, Line, and Sinker! I flew through this book and I like Hannah and thought her struggles with her career were interesting, but the relationship itself was so frustrating at times. I think the book has some great points about toxic masculinity and the effect that being objectified can have on a person, but I just wanted Fox to go to therapy so badly. It felt like Hannah was acting more as his therapist than a potential partner! It was amazing to be back in this town again and I loved seeing Piper and Brendan from the first book, but I wanted more from the romance!
The Undead Truth of Us came out yesterday, and I was lucky enough to have an ARC. Do not go into this book thinking it is your traditional zombie novel- the zombies in this case feel more like a metaphor. John Green is mentioned in the book, and I think that is actually a good comparison for the tone of the story. If you want something similar to John Green with a hint of zombies, pick this one up! I thought it explored grief in an honest way.
A Prayer for the Crown-Shy was such a delight! It was exactly what my heart needed- I was touched, to be honest. Sibling Dex and Mosscap are two of my favourite characters and I just love their friendship. They have such important conversations and hilarious interactions. I am not sure if we are getting more books in this series, but I so hope that we do!
I love reading romance in the summer, and it feels like I am running out of time! That is why I would love to get to both Love and Other Words and Better Than the Movies!
