WWW Wednesday – February 17, 2021

I missed last week’s WWW Wednesday because of two blog tour posts being due that day but here I am, back again! I’ll cover books that I’ve read since my last update.

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

Guess who still hasn’t made any progress on this book!!!

I’m in a bit of a reading (and mental health) slump and I’ve had basically no motivation to read anything lately, which is a shame because I think I’m going to really like this book. Hopefully I can finish it this month.

Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall

I started this a few days ago because it’s a book my partner, Rob, chose for my TBR this month. I’m enjoying it quite a lot. The main character is a total dick but he knows this about himself which is a new take on this.

I’ve been reading so many books lately where the main character is a terrible person and doesn’t seem to realize it, so this is strangely refreshing.

Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas

This is part a buddy read with Hannah’s Not-a-Book-Club Book Club. We split this book into four sections to cover over four weeks and I missed last week’s section (oops) so I’ll have to do some extra reading to catch up before our next discussion.

So far nothing has really happened in the parts I’ve read so I don’t really have an opinion on this yet. I hope it lives up to the hype!

Recently Finished

Since my last update on February 3rd, I’ve finished the following books:

Murder on the Menu by Fiona Leitch

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I read this for a blog tour so you can read my full review here.

This is the first book in a cozy mystery series and I enjoyed it a lot! The writing style is very informal and funny so I laughed quite a bit. I’m also a huge fan of DCI Winters and I’m hoping that I’ll see more and more of him as this series progresses.

Bad Habits by Flynn Meaney

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

I read this book for a blog tour with The Write Reads and I unfortunately didn’t like it. It is book that has a really big sense of humor and is sure to illicite many laughs from you, but I found it’s view on feminism very harmful.

It’s a very sex-positive book, which is great, but it relied too much on virgin-shaming for me to be on board with it.

A Brush with Death by Fiona Leitch

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This is the second book in the same series as Murder on the Menu that I mentioned above. I also read this for a blog tour so you can read my full review here.

I didn’t like this one as much as the first because it dealt with themes that I really don’t like such as cheating and love-triangles. I’m honestly not sure if I’m going to continue the series because it’s relying very heavily on the love-triangle trope right now and I hate them so much.

Ever Alice by H.J. Ramsay

Rating: 1.5 out of 5.

I really really disliked this book, which is unfortunate because it has SUCH A GORGEOUS COVER. I read it as part of a blog tour and had to switch to a spotlight post because of how much I disliked it.

Not only was I not a fan of the writing style or plot, but I also felt like this book never took mental health seriously. You can visit my spotlight post here.

A Dash of Romance By Paullett Golden

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

This book might have singlehandedly saved my reading week. It consists of a short romance novella and several short stories and the novella was the ultimate feel good novel. I loved it so much.

The only thing that I wanted to change was a small plot point involving the heroines dad. I didn’t understand why he did/didn’t do what I expected him to do and I can’t make sense of it. Maybe I’m missing something…

  1. Loved Backman’s book! I am actually really impressed with the fact that you were honest about Bad Habits, while being on the blog tour! I haven’t read it yet but appreciate the honesty! I really hope you get out of your slump soon.. those are never fun.
