WWW+W Wednesday

Wednesday, September 20, 2017

I have been out of the game for well a few years. Having two babies will do that to you!  I decided to join in on some fun today, but I am going to do two at once.



 First we have Taking on a World of Words weekly WWW Wednesday post!
It works as follows:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish?
what do you think you'll read next?




Secondly, I thought i would through the Waiting on Wednesday in there also as my own added "W"!
I see the Breaking the Spine has been inactive since I took my long hiatus.


So here goes:

What am I currently reading?

Today I started Half-Blood by Jennifer Armentrout (Goodreads). I had the urge to reread it from the beginning as I never finished the series as it was released. I hate trying to jump back in a series so this is my solution. I will say I forgot how many similarities run between it and Vampire Academy, especially in the first books.

I got on my kick on the Covenant series because I am also listening to Wicked by Jennifer Armentrout  (Goodreads) currently. I have just recently found out I like audio books, though I have a hard time not just picking up the book and finishing it myself. I am a fast reader and the slow narration is hard for me to handle sometimes.

What have I recently finished?

 Oh my gosh, I have been reading like a mad woman the last few months. This past week though, I have read:

 The Three Series by Ashley Kristen. (Goodreads)
 I really enjoyed this series and i will post a review sometime soon. The second book, With Everything I Am, was by far my favorite. Callum makes a girl swoon.

and

Curse of the Gods series 1 and 2 by Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington.
 I couldn't get enough and i want the next one like yesterday. 


What am I going to read next?

I will more then likely finish the covenant series, then I might finish another series I have been meaning to lately. I typically just read what ever suites suites me, so we will have to see where the wind takes me.


 What am I waiting on this Wednesday?

The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
Release Day: October 24, 2017

                                                   Synopsis 
In a world of etiquette and polite masks, no one is who they seem to be.

Antonina Beaulieu is in the glittering city of Loisail for her first Grand Season, where she will attend balls and mingle among high society. Under the tutelage of the beautiful but cold Valérie Beaulieu, she hopes to find a suitable husband. However, the haphazard manifestations of Nina’s telekinetic powers make her the subject of malicious gossip.

Yet dazzling telekinetic performer and outsider Hector Auvray sees Nina’s powers as a gift, and he teaches her how to hone and control them. As they spend more and more time together, Nina falls in love and believes she’s found the great romance that she’s always dreamed of, but Hector’s courtship of Nina is deceptive.

The Beautiful Ones is a sweeping fantasy of manners set in a world inspired by the Belle Époque.

Trickery (Curse of the Gods, #1) by Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington

Willa Knight: Dweller. Slave. Non-magical being.

In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa. Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods.

At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won’t ever be forced to present herself to them... Until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world—a position that she definitely did not earn.

Under the sudden, watchful eye of the gods, she will be tasked to serve the Abcurse brothers, five sols built of arrogance, perfection and power. They are almost gods themselves, and under their service she is either going to end up sentenced to death, or else they are going to ruin her so badly that she will wish for it.

Either way, she is in trouble. 


5/5

HOLY HELL ya'll! That kind of sums up what my thoughts were when Trickery sadly ended. To say I loved it is an understatement.


I started reading this mainly because well, I loved the cover. Yes I AM one of those. Aren't we all? I might have loved the cover, but upon reading the reviews and synopsis I completely expected going into it that I was actually in fact going to hate it and more then likely i was going to throw it in the DNF pile. You see, I detest love triangles. I hate them so much that I typically refuse to even read a book that hints of one. Thank god that the cover caught my eye on this one because a love pentagon sounded a bit much for me.


You know what? A love pentagon totally worked with book. It is actually one of the things that in fact made it amazing. I suppose it is more to the fact that Willa, our main character, wasnt warring the entire book over who to choose, and the relationships just were accepted and co existed. I should also say there isn't actually romance in this. There a suffocating amount of sexual tension as the book goes on, and the relationship of Willa with the Abcruse brothers is more then friends, but not romantic. You can tell those feelings are there though.


Let's talk about Willa Knight. She is beyond clumsy and very outgoing, I was scared the over-the-top clumsiness wasn't going to work or get old as the book went on, but it didn't. I found Willa to be extremely likeable and I really enjoyed her as the main character. She is a very loyal person and someone who doesn't want trouble, trouble always seems to find her. i do feel like she grew through out the first book and I look foward to finding out how she will change throughout the five book series.

The Abcurse brothers. HOLY. SMOKES. They make me wish my husband had five brothers who were hot in the own way and we all were connected. Three of the brothers are my favorite, but I love all of them for different reasons. They each have a different gift, because of that each one adds something different to the story and to Willa. I really don't want her to choose one at some point in the story.  I am afraid she will be forced too, but the team of six works so good together. The way they fit together is effortless, and I never even gave the five brothers one girl thing a second thought after I started the book. I can't imagine not having it now and I dont want it to end.... ever.


Needless to say, I 100% reccomend this. It has moments of humour, swoon worthy moments, and dark moments. It does have sexually tension, but there is no sexual incounters not really, but my god you dont even realize. If you havent yet check it. out.
