This one of my favourite weekly tags, so many people do it that it’s really fun – and it’s always nice to rant about how excited I am for my next read. WWW Wednesday is hosted over at Taking On A World Of Words, go and check out their site! If you’ve had a go at this tag, feel free to link your post in the comments. And here’s what I’ve been up to this week!
(I realized after I’d made the graphic that the date is wrong. Sorry!)
What I Finished Recently
I had a revelation this week. It sounds ridiculous but I had been really stressed about having loads of books to read, then took a step back and realised … it didn’t really matter! Reading is just a hobby. And whilst I really wanted finish this series in time for the sequel’s publishing date… it didn’t really matter. Have you ever got a bit too caught up pages to speed through and not really focused on enjoying yourself? Let me know in the comments.
So I instead read a romance book that I’ve wanted to read for YEARS and it was such a fun read! You can check out my full review and why booktok was what lead me to read Shelby Mahurin’s Serpent and Dove here.
I also recently read The Yearbook by Holly Bourne. I normally love her writing but I feel like it lacked the usual spark. It was a bit preachy – the message was very strong but it felt forced. I thought there’d be more of a focus on the actual Yearbook, but it only was discussed within the final pages. I liked the main character’s development and it was SO easy to read (I read 200 pages in one go!) but the love interest was very pretentious…
What I’m Currently Reading
The mysteries in this series are beyond perfect. At the moment, the mystery is six out of five stars but I’m not that bothered about the other parts of the story, like Pip’s friends or relationships. I get that the backstory is connecting the sequel to the first book but it could be a standalone mystery and I wouldn’t really mind. I’ve very nearly finished it. I’ve always liked and admired Pip for being such a dependable character but now I don’t know what to think. Her reaction to this traumatic news is justified but I’m not sure about her actions? Her character took quite a dark twist and I’m a little concerned for her, for the third book. Have you read any of the Good Girl’s Guide To Murder Books? I’d love to know what you thought in the comments!
What I Want To Read Next
I’m so excited to return to the hilarious, witty world of the Montague siblings for a Nobleman’s Guide to Shipwrecks and Scandal. I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH!
