It’s Weds again!
Time to answer three questions:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you will read next?
This weekly meme is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.
Okay! Let’s get into it!
What Am I Currently Reading?
I’m still reading this arc I received from Totally Bound Publishing. I’m not crazy about it. It’s a Beauty and the Beast retelling. It grabbed my attention mainly because of the setting. There is a castle. This basic bitch will read anything with a castle in it.
This book just isn’t working for me though. It is a romance between a boss and employee, and I’m not completely against this trope, however, it has to be done in a particular way. There is an inherent power differential between a boss and employee. So I’d like to see the boss be somewhat conflicted about his attraction.
Nah. Guy is ready to stick it in from day one. Him and his pervy brother are creeping out over the new nanny and it’s giving me really icky Weinstein vibes.
I’m not about it.
I’m also reading this very cute cozy mystery on wattpad. It’s about a snotty upper class woman in the wake of the Great War. She has to solve a mystery of diamonds gone missing during a party. This is a very voicey story with tons of humor. I recommend checking it out, along with all of Di Rossi’s works.
I’m also reading this ONC entry by Joseph Huff. Joseph is a very cool human being and gives great writing advice. He chose to go with the legendary figure prompt of the Open Novella Contest. His story is very cool so far. A military guy inexplicably time travels back to an alternate version of the Middle Ages, where he meets the Arthurian legend Morgan Le Fay. He only has 4 chapters posted so far, but I’m already hooked and can’t wait to see where this story goes.
I’ve also started to become more active on Inkitt! I don’t have too many Inkitt friends yet, so please follow for a follow back if you’re also on Inkitt 🙂
I’m reading this very fun and quirky contemporary romance on Inkitt.
The protagonist is a sexually-frustrated 38-year-old who is trying like hell to get it in.
That’s a whole mood.
And I love to see a romance protagonist on the older side ❤
‘The Fundamentals of Unicult’ is the most boring ass shit I’ve ever read. Unicult is just self-help nonsense with better marketing. But I really want to review the book and do a deep dive youtube video about this idiocy, so I’m pushing myself through it. I gave up trying to gain access to their discord server. I don’t know how many times they want me to fill out a google form. Eh, maybe they knew I was just looking for tea. I don’t think it’s any lost cause though. If their discord is anything like their book, it would probably be some boring Tony Robbins ripoff shit.
Then I’m still making my way through this historical. I’m saving my thoughts for now. I’ll post an in-depth review when I’m done.
And I just have a few chapters left of ‘The Great Hunt.’ I switched from paperback to audiobook and now I’m actually making some Wheel of Time progress! 😀
What Did You Recently Finish Reading?
Also, the author shouted out my review on facebook and it kind of made my life.
I loved this book so sooo much. I saw that Angela was giving away book swag when you order a signed copy, so you know I went and ordered one. It was hard to choose between the hardcover and paperback, because both are gorgeous. But I ended up going with the paperback, because I wanted that beautiful picture of Uriah and Aria.
I also finished an amazing horror story on Inkitt.
This horror story was absolutely BRILLIANT. My goodness, Alex Beyman blew me away. A group of strangers wakes up in an abandoned supermarket and all of the doors are sealed with cement. This group of strangers ends up working together to survive and try to break out of the supermarket.
The supermarket becomes a microcosm of human civilization. And I LOVED the social commentary. There was subtle criticism of feminism, with records showing past supermarket prisoners aborted their babies to slow population growth, all while men gave up trying to compete for women and turned to masturbation and hobbies (gah! The commentary on the modern world blew me away).
Really, this is a story you just have to read. It is so SO GOOD.
And one of the writer’s other books has a brain in a vat on the cover, so I know it’s gonna be right up my alley. Gimme that metaphysical dread!
Here is the full review I posted on Inkitt.
What Do You Think You Will Read Next?
I’m on Emily Hurricane’s arc team for her 5 novella series. The first book launches on March 5th. I’ve already read that book and will be posting my reviews as we get closer to the book launch. I now need to move on to book two. I already feel so left out! Everybody else on Emily’s arc team going on about plot threads and characters I don’t know anything about yet!
And I still need to read books two and three in Emily’s Shotgun series.
That’s it for me!
See ya, sucker!
