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 list 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.
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.
What did you recently finish reading?
I zipped right through this book. It was just as good as I hoped it would be and West? West was freaking everything. The ending felt a bit rushed but I enjoyed the rest of the book so much that I didn’t even care. Oh goodness, this book was sooo good.
What are you currently reading?
This book showed up on my kindle last night as I was finishing up Devil’s Daughter so of course I immediately started reading it once I was done. It’s Jake and Brenna!!
What do you think you’ll read next?
I need to get this one read pronto so that I can work on my buddy review for this one with Ames. I’m a sucker for a sports romance and a basketball romance? Yes, please!

The third book in USA Today bestselling author Lenora Bell's sexy School for Dukes series is a Dracula-Northanger Abbey mash-up, with a dash of James Bond's Miss Moneypenny.
Raised in the countryside by her overprotective uncle, Miss Mina Penny's dream of a triumphant London season is finally here. She determined her perfect match long ago: Rafe Bentley, the wickedest rake of them all. There's only one very large, very unyielding obstacle: Rafe's brother Andrew, the reclusive Duke of Thorndale.
This was supposed to be simple. Duke goes to London. Duke selects suitable bride. Love match? Not a chance. But when Andrew meets Mina, she complicates everything. How can a lady armed with such beauty and brains fall for his irresponsible degenerate of a brother? Andrew vows to save her from heartbreak and ruin, no matter the cost.
But Mina is no damsel in distress. She's daring, intuitive, passionate...and halfway to melting Andrew's cold heart. And although Mina thought she knew exactly what she wanted, one breathtakingly seductive kiss from Andrew changes everything. Now Mina must decide between long-held dreams and dangerous new desires. Could her true destiny lie in the arms of a duke?
I just read two fantastic historicals in the last week so I’ve got historicals on my mind. This one sounds like a good one and I’m really enjoying this series so I’m very much looking forward to Mina’s story.
Are you looking forward to One Fine Duke? What other books are you looking forward to releasing this year?
