So I’ve been playing around with things that I want to do on this blog and I’ve been wanting to do a mid-week check in so that I can chat about the books that I’m reading that week. What’s working for me and what’s not but I also want to keep a running lists of books that I cannot wait to get my greedy little hands on. I decided that I’m going to do a mashup of the Can’t Wait Wednesday and WWW Wednesday posts here on my blog and I’m going to call it The Wednesday Post.
Can’t Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tessa over at Wishful Endings and it was based on Waiting on Wednesday that was hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. It’s a meme that let’s you chat about what you’re reading and planning to read this week.
What did you recently finish reading?
In the last couple of weeks, my reading mojo has been non-existent so I’m trying to get myself out of that reading slump and this is the book that I picked up to jump start my 2019 reading. I finished it in no time so I’m hopeful that my reading for 2019 will be fantastic. This was another fabulous read by Sally Thorne and she has cemented herself on my auto-buy list. Great, great stuff!
What are you currently reading?
Governess Gone Rogue (Dear Lady Truelove #3) by Laura Lee Guhrke
I’m tackling books from my review pile and this book is up. I’m enjoying the book so far and this series is really shaping up to be a fun one. I enjoy Laura Lee Guhrke’s writing and I’m happy to report that this book is just as good as her others.
What do you think you’ll read next?
One and Only (Bridesmaids Behaving Badly #1) by Jenny Holiday
I have the third book in this series for review and it comes out in a few weeks so I need to get my ass in gear and get this read so that I can be ready for Three Little Words. I’ve been hearing such wonderful things about this series so I’m looking forward to digging in.
Can’t Wait WednesdayThe Bride Test
by Helen Hoang
Series: The Kiss Quotient #2
Also in this series: The Kiss Quotient
Published by Penguin, Berkley on May 7, 2019
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Add It: Goodreads
Khai Diep has no feelings. Well, he feels irritation when people move his things or contentment when ledgers balance down to the penny, but not big, important emotions—like grief. And love. He thinks he’s defective. His family knows better—that his autism means he just processes emotions differently. When he steadfastly avoids relationships, his mother takes matters into her own hands and returns to Vietnam to find him the perfect bride.
As a mixed-race girl living in the slums of Ho Chi Minh City, Esme Tran has always felt out of place. When the opportunity arises to come to America and meet a potential husband, she can’t turn it down, thinking this could be the break her family needs. Seducing Khai, however, doesn’t go as planned. Esme’s lessons in love seem to be working…but only on herself. She’s hopelessly smitten with a man who’s convinced he can never return her affection.
With Esme’s time in the United States dwindling, Khai is forced to understand he’s been wrong all along. And there’s more than one way to love.
We are a matter of months away from Helen Hoang’s next release The Bride Test and I’m super excited about that. Last year’s The Kiss Quotient was my favorite book of the entire year and Hoang’s writing style spoke to me so I’m looking forward to seeing what she does with Kwan’s book. If you remember TKQ, Kwan is Michael Phan’s (swoon) cousin and he’s going to be another interesting character, I just know it. I cannot freaking wait for this one. It’s like at the top of my wishlist.
Are you looking forward to The Bride Test? What other books are you looking forward to releasing this year?
I *still* haven’t read The Hating Game so I need to get to that and to 99 Percent Mine. And I’m so excited for The Bride Test!
Yessss!! I’m so looking forward to The Bride Test. Bring on Khai!!
I have always enjoyed reading Laura Lee Guhrke for years, she does create fun scenarios in her books.
Same! I’m really enjoying this series so I’m looking forward to jumping right back in.
YAY! So glad you enjoyed 99 Percent Mine. I am so excited for that one!
Hey Grace! Yes, the story isn’t perfect and I didn’t enjoy it as much as The Hating Game but it was still enjoyable. Happy reading!
Such differing views to Nick on the latest Sally Thorne release. Now I just don’t know what to do. I’m thinking if I get to reading (although I’m trying to restrict my spending) I will read the free sample first and try and figure out if it’s for me. And I cannot wait for The Bride Test to come out, why is it so far away?
Yeah, I can see where she’s coming from because her gripes are legit gripes. I just didn’t mind them and enjoyed the romance overall.
I desperately need The Bride Test to have ARCs!
Same. I hope they have eARCs because I don’t read print books anymore. Fingers crossed!
I am so ready for The Bride Test!!!
Same! It is kind of ridiculous how ready I am for The Bride Test.
