The Wednesday Post (14)

Posted June 12, 2019 by Rowena in Books | 4 Comments

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. I decided that I’m going to do a mashup of the Can’t Wait Wednesday and WWW Wednesday posts here on my blog. I’m bringing them together and calling it The Wednesday Post. Here’s what I’m up to this week.
WWW Wednesday

What did you recently finish reading?

Natalie Tan’s Book of Luck and Fortune by Roselle Lim
This book didn’t live up to the hype that I was giving it in my head before I started. It started off really slow and it felt like it took me far too long to warm up to Natalie and everyone else. It seems like everyone else in the world enjoyed this one a lot more than I did.

What are you currently reading?

Waiting for Tom Hanks by Kerry Winfree
Hmmm…what can I say about this one? I was determined to finish this one last night but that didn’t happen. It was far too easy for me to put this book down because the heroine is on my last damn nerve so I’m really hoping and praying that I finish this one today so that I can move on with my life. I hope Annie gets that giant stick out of her ass because she’s hella extra and ugh. Wish me luck.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Friend Zone by Abby Jimenez Highland Deception by Meggan Connors
I really need a turnaround this week. I’ve read a lot of not for me books so I’m really hoping that either one of these reads is a good one. I think I’m getting too old because I’m not connecting with these young characters, not as much as I used to. Seriously, wish me luck?

Coming this fall, a brand-new standalone in the New York Times bestselling Briar U series!

She’s the player he never saw coming…

I’m super interested in reading this book. I’ve been reading about these characters since they first appeared in the Off Campus and Briar U series and I’m looking forward to see what Kennedy brings with this one. Hunter annoyed me some in The Chase but I’m curious about him and I’m so here for seeing him grow into his own so yes, please hurry up and release this book so that I can devour it in one sitting. Elle Kennedy writes fantastic college romances and I have adored each and every single NA book that she’s written in one way or another so I’m anxiously waiting for this one. Elle Kennedy released who Hunter’s heroine is and…I don’t remember meeting her so is she a new character? This book comes out on October 7th and I’ll be sitting here, anxiously waiting…probably looking like this:
Mark your calendars, lovely readers!
So, what are you reading this week? Anything good? Anything that you want to rant about? Are you looking forward to The Play? What other books are you looking forward to releasing this year?

Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin
This was great. It was colorful and had just the right amount of angst to go with charming and smart characters and really, it just rocked my socks. I’m so glad that I read it.

If It Makes You Happy by Claire Kann
I didn’t get a chance to read last night or I would have been finished with this one but so far, I’m really liking it. Winnie is the bomb and her Mama Bear attitude is just fantastic. I’m so rooting for her right now.

What do you think you’ll read next?

The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen
I will always want to read more Sarah Dessen so I’m pretty stoked to finally jump into this one. I just know that I’m going to love it.

The Wednesday Post (13)The Wallflower Wager
by Tessa Dare
Series: Girl Meets Duke #3
Published by Harper Collins, Avon on August 13, 2019
Genres: Historical, Romance
Point of View:Alternating Third Person

They call him the Duke of Ruin.

To an undaunted wallflower, he's just the beast next door.

Wealthy and ruthless, Gabriel Duke clawed his way from the lowliest slums to the pinnacle of high society—and now he wants to get even.

Loyal and passionate, Lady Penelope Campion never met a lost or wounded creature she wouldn’t take into her home and her heart.

When her imposing—and attractive—new neighbor demands she clear out the rescued animals, Penny sets him a challenge. She will part with her precious charges, if he can find them loving homes.

Done, Gabriel says. How hard can it be to find homes for a few kittens?

And a two-legged dog.

And a foul-mouthed parrot.

And a goat, an otter, a hedgehog . . .

Easier said than done, for a cold-blooded bastard who wouldn’t know a loving home from a workhouse. Soon he’s covered in cat hair, knee-deep in adorable, and bewitched by a shyly pretty spinster who defies his every attempt to resist. Now she’s set her mind and heart on saving him.

Not if he ruins her first.

Tessa Dare never steers me wrong with fantastic historical romances so I will probably always want to read her stuff. I’m really enjoying this series and I just know this book is going to be just as great as the other books in this series and I can’t wait to read it. The Wallflower Wager comes out on August 13, 2019 so mark your calendars, lovely readers! I’m sure this book isn’t to be missed!
So, what are you reading this week? Anything good? Anything that you want to rant about? Are you looking forward to The Wallflower Wager? What other books are you looking forward to releasing this year?

The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren
The Christina Lauren duo never fail when delivering witty contemporary romances that I just love to pieces. It was no different with The Unhoneymooners. What an absolute delight!

Ayesha at Last by Uzma Jalaluddin
So far, I’m digging this one so I’m glad that I picked this one up for review. I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for more bookish goodness from Jalaluddin. Her writing style is great!

What do you think you’ll read next?

If It Makes You Happy by Claire Kann The Rest of the Story by Sarah Dessen
I’m super stoked to jump into both of these books because I adore all things Sarah Dessen but If It Makes You Happy sounds super cute so I’m looking a lot like this while I finish up the book I’m reading now because soon…

The Wednesday Post (12)No Judgments
by Meg Cabot
Series: Little Bridge Island #1
Published by Harper Collins, William Morrow Books on September 24, 2019
Genres: Contemporary, Romance
Pages: 384
Format: eARC
Source: Edelweiss
Add It: Goodreads

The storm of the century is about to hit Little Bridge Island, Florida—and it’s sending waves crashing through Sabrina “Bree” Beckham’s love life…

When a massive hurricane severs all power and cell service to Little Bridge Island—as well as its connection to the mainland—twenty-five-year-old Bree Beckham isn’t worried . . . at first. She’s already escaped one storm—her emotionally abusive ex—so a hurricane seems like it will be a piece of cake.

But animal-loving Bree does become alarmed when she realizes how many islanders have been cut off from their beloved pets. Now it’s up to her to save as many of Little Bridge’s cats and dogs as she can . . . but to do so, she’s going to need help—help she has no choice but to accept from her boss’s sexy nephew, Drew Hartwell, the Mermaid Café’s most notorious heartbreaker.

But when Bree starts falling for Drew, just as Little Bridge’s power is restored and her penitent ex shows up, she has to ask herself if her island fling was only a result of the stormy weather, or if it could last during clear skies too.

Meg Cabot has always been one of my top contemporary romances back in the day and I have a feeling that she is one of those authors that I will always want new books from so I’m stoked about getting this one. It comes out on September 24th so we have a bit of a wait but I’m sure it’ll be worth it…Meg Cabot slays the romance game so let’s add this one to our wishlists, shall we?
So, what are you reading this week? Anything good? Anything that you want to rant about? Are you looking forward to No Judgments? What other books are you looking forward to releasing this year?

Magic Burns (Kate Daniels #2) by Ilona Andrews | 4.25 out of 5
I’m in a reading slump like no other. I’m hoping that this week is the week that I finally kick it to the curb for good but it’s Wednesday and I’ve only read one book. I enjoyed Magic Burns a lot more than I did the previous book but my reading slump is responsible for why it took me so long to read it. It was a fantastic book with magic, kick-ass heroines, charming side characters and a romance that just won’t quit. I’m so here for all of the Kate Daniels magic that I’ve been hearing so much about. I can see it and I can’t wait for more.

Hook Shot (Hoops #3) by Kennedy Ryan
I started this book this morning and already, I’m hooked. Kenney Ryan writes fabulous contemporary romances that really pull at your heart strings. I can’t wait to dig more into Lotus and Kenan’s romance. I adored them in the other books and look forward to seeing them shine on their own.

The Bride Test (The Kiss Quotient #2) by Helen Hoang
I can’t wait any longer to get this book read. I need more Asian romances in my life. Kwan, here I come!

High school finally behind her, Winnie is all set to attend college in the fall. But first she's spending her summer days working at her granny’s diner and begins spending her midnights with Dallas—the boy she loves to hate and hates that she likes. Winnie lives in Misty Haven, a small town where secrets are impossible to keep—like when Winnie allegedly snaps on Dr. Skinner, which results in everyone feeling compelled to give her weight loss advice for her own good. Because they care that’s she’s “too fat.”

Winnie dreams of someday inheriting the diner—but it'll go away if they can't make money, and fast. Winnie has a solution—win a televised cooking competition and make bank. But Granny doesn't want her to enter—so Winnie has to find a way around her formidable grandmother. Can she come out on top?

My friend Holly put this book on my radar. First of all, that cover is gorgeous. I love the colors and the cover model is too freaking adorable. Her outfit is super cute and that blurb had me requesting this for review with a quickness. I need to read more diverse stories and this fits the bill well so I’m all about it. This book comes out on June 4th so mark calendars, lovely readers, this one promises to be good one. I just know it!

Fumbled by Alexa Martin | The Shameless Hour by Sarina Bowen
I finished Fumbled last night and The Shameless Hour the night before last night. Both books were great reads and I’m super glad that I requested Fumbled for review. Poppy could have been me. She even talks like me and I really enjoyed seeing her with Ace and Big Ace. The romance was fantastic, the dialogue was real and I really need to go back and read Intercepted. Alexa Martin has made herself nice and comfy on my auto-buy list with just this one book. Total score for me. Ever since Sarina Bowen put her Ivy Years series on Kindle Unlimited, I’ve been binge reading these books during the day at work. I love this series and it continues to be a favorite of mine. I liked Bella’s story a lot more with this reading than I did the first time and I can’t wait to jump into my work re-read of DJ and Lianne.

Can’t Wait Wednesday

I will always look forward to new releases by Sarah Dessen. She writes the kind of stories that I absolutely love and always want to read.

Emma Saylor doesn’t remember a lot about her mother, who died when she was ten. But she does remember the stories her mom told her about the big lake that went on forever, with cold, clear water and mossy trees at the edges.

Now it’s just Emma and her dad, and life is good, if a little predictable…until Emma is unexpectedly sent to spend the summer with her mother’s family—her grandmother and cousins she hasn’t seen since she was a little girl.

When Emma arrives at North Lake, she realizes there are actually two very different communities there. Her mother grew up in working class North Lake, while her dad spent summers in the wealthier Lake North resort. The more time Emma spends there, the more it starts to feel like she is divided into two people as well. To her father, she is Emma. But to her new family, she is Saylor, the name her mother always called her.

Then there’s Roo, the boy who was her very best friend when she was little. Roo holds the key to her family’s history, and slowly, he helps her put the pieces together about her past. It’s hard not to get caught up in the magic of North Lake—and Saylor finds herself falling under Roo’s spell as well.

For Saylor, it’s like a whole new world is opening up to her. But when it’s time to go back home, which side of her will win out?
