I’ve been a hot mess lately and missed a bunch of these but I’m finally bringing back WWW Wednesday!
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Taking on a World of Words, where you answer the following three questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What have you recently finished?
- What are you reading next?
The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
I started this a long time ago and still haven’t finished. It was actually a book club read for December but my book club never even gathered to talk about it, so me not reading it didn’t affect anything.
Despite taking so long to read this, it’s actually pretty creepy and interesting. I just had a few months with too many books to read which is why this has been on the back burner. Hoping to finish it this month!
Murder on the Menu by Fiona Leitch
I technically haven’t started this yet (at the time of my writing) but it’s for a blog tour and my post is due tomorrow so I’ll be starting it very soon.
This is the first book in a cozy mystery series and I’m also doing a blog tour for the second book as well. I’ve been trying to read more cozy mysteries so I’m quite excited!
In the past week I’ve finished the following books:
White Trash Warlock by David R. Slayton
This book was really interesting and had phenomenal world building. If Goodreads allowed quarter stars, I’d probably rate this a 4.25.
David R. Slayton is an amazing writer and he had me hooked by the very first chapter. This is the first book in a series so I’ll definitely be waiting for the next installment to be announced!

The Lovely and the Lost by Page Morgan
This was one of the books that Rob picked for me to read in January and in true fashion, I waited until the very last minute to read it.
While I still am very much enjoying this series, I’m upset at how much the love triangle trope was played up in this book. It’s one of my least favorite tropes so I found myself getting more and more frustrated as it went along. I’m still 100% continuing on to the next book though.
This is the second book in The Dispossessed Trilogy and you can find my review of the first book here.
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
I kind of wanted to give this book a 4.75 because while I felt like it wasn’t a 5-star read for me, it definitely felt better than a 4 or 4.5.
Reading this book was a strange experience for me because although I had never read it before, I kept feeling a sense of deja vu throughout.
It was tragic and powerful and I definitely think everyone should give it a go.
Verona Comics by Jennifer Dugan
This book suffered from another case of “the blurb is misleading”. I thought that this was going to be a cute YA romance about forbidden love but instead what I got was an incredibly dark and tragic love story.
Granted, it is marketed as a Romeo and Juliet retelling (which I don’t necessary agree with but oh well) and Romeo and Juliet is pretty freaking tragic so maybe I should have expected it.
The Viscount’s Unconventional Lady by Virginia Heath
This book was a lot of fun! It was a blog tour book that I wasn’t expecting to enjoy as much as I did because I’m normally not a fan of historical fiction.
As someone who DNFed Pride and Prejudice, The Viscount’s Unconventional Lady was basically the book that I wished Pride and Prejudice would have been. While it wasn’t an enemies-to-lovers, it still had a good amount of drama and angst that I loved.
You can read my full review here.
I have a few blog tours coming up so that’s what I’ll be focusing on reading in the next week.
Bad Habits by Flynn Meaney
My tour post for this is due February 7th and I’m going to be completely honest–I have no idea what this book is about.
BUT JUST LOOK AT THE COVER!!!! I’M SO EXCITED!
A Brush with Death by Fiona Leitch
This is the second book in the same series as Murder on the Menu that I mentioned above.
My post for this is due on February 10th which is the same day as the next WWW Wednesday so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do a WWW Wednesday next week. We’ll see!
Do you see any books you’ve read or want to read? Let me know in the comments!
