Today I have a super simple post to let the world know what I’m reading. Hosted by Taking on a World of Words, you answer 3 questions and hey presto, you are all done.

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you’ll read next?

 

Last week I said I was handing the book selection duties to my daughter in the hopes I would find something that tickled my fancy… I’m here this week to tell my plan did not work. I dnf’d the hell out of the first book and didn’t even bother with the second selection because I knew it wouldn’t work for me at the moment. I ended up picking up a book I didn’t have high hopes for and smashed it out in a couple of hours. Due to the absolute lack of motivation for blogging and reviewing properly, my two line thoughts will be up on Goodreads at some point in the next month.

Rage by K.A. Knight

If we were to judge those books by the covers, it would seem I’m in the mood for trashy reads… It’s true I’m in the mood for trashy reads. It’s all I can handle right now. It’s almost been two months since I picked up an epic fantasy. I don’t know what is going on… Is this genre burn out? Is that even a thing?

In light of my massive reading slump, I handed my kindle to my daughter and asked her to pick my next read for me. She surprised me by not going for the books with shirtless men on the cover. So my currently reading and reading next are courtesy of her. Continue reading “WWW Wednesday”

August TBR

I think it’s time I face reality, I’m in a massive blogging slump and I’m trying to pull myself out of a reading slump. 

So this tbr is pure speculation, it’s just what I have sitting on my kindle.

One of these books is not like the others…

July reading wrap up

I had a pretty great reading month, I didn’t 100% stick to my tbr, I guess my mood reader ways can’t be tamed, but for the most part I read some great books. I haven’t picked up a book in the last week. I’m not sure why. Emotionally it has been a big couple of months and I think I’m burnt out.

I watched a Jolt, on Amazon. Kate Beckinsale is such a badass babe. It wasn’t the best movie but I didn’t have to think or feel for 90 minutes so that was nice. I also watched a few episodes of New Girl. I love it but only watch 2-3 episodes every few months, so it’s going to take me forever to get through. (I’m still on season 1). I also started The Good Doctor. It will also become a show I only watch every now and then, so I’ll never get through it. And last night I decided to introduce the 16yr old to Underworld as she hadn’t seen it yet and as expected she bloody loved it and is planning on watching the rest of them as soon as possible.

My Tentative July TBR

My romance binge is continuing this month and I’m making sure to cross a few more TikTok hyped books off my list. Yes that means I’m heading off-world for some blue alien sexy time. Not gonna lie, I’m kind of terrified about that one.

Once again, I’m taking full advantage of kindle unlimited, I’m hoping to limit my purchases to 4 books total for the month. I figure one book a week should be enough to scratch my shopaholic urges.

For Review

An Uneasy Alliance by Kyra Radcliff

Purchased

I’m very interested to see how far I make it through my tbr as I actually finished it last month. Have you read any of these? 

TikTok made me do it – Romance wrap up part 1

At the start of the month I made a post about wanting to read some of the hyped about authors on TikTok. You can find my original post HERE. Now that the month is winding down I wanted to see how I did. If I actually managed to stick to my list of books and let you know if I thought they were worth the hype.

Hate by Tate JamesFirst on my list was Tate James. I started with Hate from her Madison Kate series. I think it’s safe to say that I really enjoyed her book. 7 books later and I’m desperately waiting for the last book in her Hades series to be released. I loved her books so much I wrote an entire post singing her praises, which you can find HERE. If you are after a reverse harem, like your men protective, violent, sweet, heavily tattooed with a little bit of choking than Tate James is the author for you.

Author spotlight – Tate James

Sometimes you see an authors name get thrown around and you wonder, is the hype warranted. Are they really that good at what they do?

As I said a few weeks ago, I’ve was planning on reading pretty much all romance this month. I had a heap of authors I wanted to try and I managed to snag free kindle unlimited, so I’ve had plenty to choose from. Tate James is a name I’ve been hearing about on instagram for months and when I finally joined the TikTok ranks the romance readers seemed to love her. I selected 6 or so authors and was only going to read one book from each author.

Guess who has a three month trial of kindle unlimited? ME, ME, ME!! I’m having fun with it.

I’ve been embracing the romance genre this month, but was missing fantasy, so I thought I would combine the two and give A Deal with the Elf King a go after seeing rave reviews and signing up to kindle unlimited. I’m halfway through as I write this and I haven’t decided if I’m going to finish it. I’m rather bored.

Recently Finished –

I completed my reread of Never Die and Pawns Gambit by Rob J. Hayes and they were both better the second time around. I have reviews up for them here and here, if you want to check those out. If you haven’t read anything by Hayes before and are not sure where to start, I would definitely suggest this series. The characters are delightful and surprising. He writes brilliant female characters and they are never included just to move the story along. They are the story. The mythology is intriguing and well written.

 

Reading Next –

Liar by Tate James is the next book on my tbr. It’s book 2 in the Madison Kate series. It turns out I’m quite the fan of the reverse harem sub genre.

The Great BookTok Debate -Part 1

Ok, that title is shit, there is no debate. It rhymed in my head and so I had to use it as a title. Anyways, my old ass recently ventured onto tiktok, and well, it’s a lot. But I found a whole bookish community on there and I was so excited. I’ve mostly come across romance readers on there, so if you are on there and rec fantasy, please let me know. 

And now to the point of this. I found that a lot of the same books are being talked about again and again. It seems everyone is into the same 5-10 dark romance/smutty books. As someone who is a big fan of romance with a heavy dash of fairy porn, I wondered why I had missed all these books. I’m using June to explore and talk about all the romance that are being recommended on TikTok. So if you aren’t a fan of romance, skip most of my posts this month.
