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 just started Reel because I thought it would be the perfect book to read on Valentine’s Day! I have a feeling I am about to go down a Kennedy Ryan rabbit hole…
I finished The Last Tale of the Flower Bride and, sadly, I think I have an unpopular opinion! The writing is undeniably beautiful and there were a lot of quotes that I annotated, but I think this book has been mismarketed. It does not read like a fantasy and is not a romance. It is about a toxic friendship more than anything and is almost a thriller? Though I saw the ending coming from a mile away! This won’t stop me from trying more from this author because the writing was stunning!
I read Mysterious Ways because I am reading all of the SPFBO finalists and this one really surprised me. I had so much fun with it and got through it so quickly. I adore these characters and I hope that the author publishes the sequel soon! I think I like the classic overworld vs underworld setup.
Coming Home is an Audible Original and is a novella. This was my introduction to Kennedy Ryan and has made me want to read everything she has written! The hero was a little frustrating to me but the connection was undeniable and this was a quick listen!
I am finally continuing with the Wayfarers series and I am so happy! A Closed and Common Orbit was much more focused than the first book and I think it tackled some questions that were brought up in The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet in a more in-depth way. I thought I would feel disappointed that it doesn’t follow all of the characters from book one, but I quickly fell for these new characters.
I have an ARC of Clytemnestra and I will be buddy reading it with a friend! I love a good Greek myth retelling and I am fascinated by this character in particular, so I am excited!

That’s so interesting to hear about the The Last Tale of the Flower Bride! I just added it to my TBR list so I’ll be interested to read it! Hoping to find it at the library soon. Thanks for sharing!
Oh no about Flower Bride! I have that on my tbr!
So glad you are enjoying Chambers. I’m hoping to start that series this year (hopefully). I look forward to seeing what you think of Clytemnestra.
I can’t wait to read your thoughts on Clytemnestra! Happy reading, Kristin. 🙂
I’m so curious to see what I think!!
I just started Midnight Duet by Jen Comfort, a Phantom of the Opera retelling. I’m curious to see how it goes; at the moment (near the start) it feels more angsty than I had anticipated.
I had a similar experience with Chokshi’s Once More Upon a Time (beautiful but I liked it a lot less than popular opinion) so I can’t say I’m surprised about The Last Tale of the Flower Bride. I hope you find something else of hers that you enjoy more, though!
Ohh I love the idea of a Phantom of the Opera retelling!
I am thinking I am going to try The Gilded Wolves because it seems very different from The Last Tale!
I loved the idea of a Phantom of the Opera retelling too, but there was more angst than I was expecting from it. (As a heads up.)
I’ve also been wanting to get into Kennedy Ryan lately! I won Before I Let Go and hope to get to it soon – happy reading 🥰
She is a new favourite of mine now for sure! I think I am going to read Before I Let Go next!
