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 about to finish The Raven and the Reindeer and it has brought me so much joy! No one writes fairytales quite like T. Kingfisher does. I think she has this special way of finding the balance between darkness and light in a story like this. I normally don’t love quest stories, but T. Kingfisher is always the exception. This is a Snow Queen retelling, so now is the perfect time to read it!
I just started That Time I Got Drunk and Saved a Demon on audio and can already tell that this is going to be a good time! I stopped what I was doing and downloaded the sequel, That Time I Got Drunk and Yeeted a Love Potion at a Werewolf, because I know I am going to want to read it right away!
Me starting and catching up on a series within the first week of the year? Who I am!? I hope that I can keep this going because I do enjoy marathoning a series once in a while. Before the Coffee Gets Cold, Tales from the Cafe, and Before Your Memory Fades were equally emotional, hopeful, and reflective. They are made up of interconnected short stories, so some of them are stronger than others, but I read a lot of this through tears and was really touched by the experience!
I have read four of the SPFBO finalists so far and am hoping to talk about those in more detail soon! I will say that The Thirteenth Hour is my least favourite so far, but I still enjoyed a lot about it and think it will work for many readers!
That Time I Got Drunk and Yeeted a Love Potion at a Werewolf is next on my list, obviously! I also have plans to buddy read Emily Wilde’s Encyclopaedia of Faeries and I cannot wait!

I’ve read one of Kimberly Lemmings’ romances though I can’t remember which one but I do remember it was definitely unique and a lot of fun! 😍 I really want to finish the Before the Coffee Gets Cold series but I have read the first and bawled through it. Do those stories continue or do the other books focus on a different set of people? Happy reading!
Kimberly Lemming’s title alone get me! So fun!
The sequels follow different stories but we get updates on the characters from the first book and we learn more about the employees at the cafe!
Before the Coffee Gets Cold, Tales from the Cafe, and Before Your Memory Fades sounds so good im going to have to check these out i love a good series , heres mine
They are fantastic! Definitely emotional!
I have Before the Coffee Gets Cold, Tales from the Cafe, and Before Your Memory Fades all on my TBR and I’m very excited! I have NOW adding Encyclopaedia of Faeries because OBVIOUSLY I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE! Hope you’re doing well! <3
I would love to hear your thoughts on Before the Coffee Gets Cold! Have your tissues ready!
Right!? How perfect doesn Emily Wilde sound?
I am well! Thank you 😊
Oh nooooooooooooo! okay, maybe that will be a March or April read lmfao! I’m too emotional (more than normal) with the lack of sun!
I was just about to start Tales from the Café! what a coincidence
I just finished 1922 by Stephen King. It was distribing.
I’m reading Doc ShowMance by Zoe Forward. A Second Chance, Grumpy Sunshine, Enemies to Lovers. Romance. I’m also reading an ARC of How That Makes You Feel by Elle Diaz. A LatinX Romance that deals with mental health, mourning, LBGTQ+, and more.
I’ll be reading Fair Expansion by Stephen King and How To Sell A Haunted House by Grady Hendrix next.
OK, I just need need need the That Time I Got Drunk And Saved A Demon and its prequel. It looks good! Hope you enjoy all your books~
You do!! I am having a blast with the first book!
…adds The Raven and the Reindeer to her list… I fell in love with the cover.
I love the cover too! Such a fun book!
Ooh, T. Kingfisher! I need to read this one — I’ve loved absolutely every single one of her books so far! Looking forward to the Encyclopedia of Faeries book to, and I do need to get to Before the Coffee Gets Cold (since I have a copy) — so glad to hear that you loved it!
I haven’t read this T. Kingfisher book yet, but I will! (Maybe soon, to keep it seasonal.) And I’ve read the first two Before Your Coffee Gets Cold books, but I hadn’t yet decided on the third. I’ll probably pick it up eventually, though! The first two were really neat reads.
I think you’ll love T. Kingfisher!
The third book is probably my favourite of the three!
Oh, I definitely love T. Kingfisher’s work! I’ve read several of her books, and everything except her horror is an auto-buy for me. 😉
Interesting! Now I’ll have to make sure I pick up the third book.
