Hi everyone! It has been a while since the last time I did a WWW (almost 4 months *gaps*), but for me it’s a hit or miss depending on the time of the month (aka if it’s close to the end of the month when I try to do my monthly wrap-up) or if there’s been a significant change in my reading habits that I feel like will be enough content not to bore anyone.
For this post, I’m just going to add the 3 most recent books I’ve finished since I’m going to be combining May and June’s wrap-ups!
Personally, there’s a lot going on in my life with raising my new chickens (which I just hatched 4 more little ones last night) and taking two nursing classes in a 10 week period that I haven’t had a lot of extra time to read. Then on top of that I’ve been reading books I’ve been sent to review, so I haven’t had any time to read any on my person books, and it’s been feeling like work even though the books I’ve been sent are ones that I’ve wanted to read. Although I’ve enjoyed the books I’ve reviewed, it just feel like another thing to cross off my to do list because even though I tried to make sure I have enough time to read it, I seem to be having to read it a couple of days before the review is due.
WWW is another weekly meme host by Taking on the World of Words where you answer the following questions:
- What are you currently reading?
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What do you want to read next?
So, both of the books that I’m reading, I’ve barely started… like less than 10 pages in.
Infiltrate by Cali Mann
“Spirit Shifters go mad, unless we mate four times.
Bad enough that fate chose them, the Alpha wolf and the Bad Boy vampire, but I don’t have time for these irresistibly sexy shifters when my brother’s life hangs in the balance.
My mother’s murderous boyfriend threatened him, and I will do anything to save him – even infiltrate and sabotage the only academy willing to give me – and my brother – a chance.
Infiltrate is the first book in this why choose paranormal romance series. Expect a tough heroine, unusual shifters, vampires, bullies, and love in this steamy new adult reverse harem academy romance.”
Ok, fine, I’m a couple of chapters in this book (that I started last night because of life). So far, all I know is that there’s a lost of cussing. It’s only 150ish pages, so I’m hoping that I can finish and review it soon because it came out yesterday and my review is due…
Knightmare Arcanist by Shami Stovall
“Magic. Sailing. A murderer among heroes.
Gravedigger Volke Savan wants nothing more than to be like his hero, the legendary magical swashbuckler, Gregory Ruma. First he needs to become an arcanist, someone capable of wielding magic, which requires bonding with a mythical creature. And he’ll take anything—a pegasus, a griffin, a ravenous hydra—maybe even a leviathan, like Ruma.
So when Volke stumbles across a knightmare, a creature made of shadow and terror, he has no reservations. But the knightmare knows a terrible secret: Ruma is a murderer out to spread corrupted magic throughout their island nation. He’s already killed a population of phoenixes and he intends to kill even more.
In order to protect his home, his adopted sister, and the girl he admires from afar, Volke will need to confront his hero, the Master Arcanist Gregory Ruma.”
Again, I couldn’t tell you much about this book at the moment because this in the one where I’m 10 pages in. I started it earlier in the month but had to put it down for the moment because I had books to review for blog tours coming up.
Royal Decoy by Heather Frost
“A SERVANT blackmailed into becoming a princess’s decoy.
A BODYGUARD determined to keep her alive.
A PRINCE forced to execute his father’s brutal laws.
A PRISONER used to keep him compliant.
A WORLD on the brink of war.
In one horrible night, Clare goes from kitchen maid to royal decoy. She has three months to become the princess’s perfect double so she can ensure her betrothal to an enemy prince. Desperate to survive, Clare throws herself into self-defense training, taught by her distractingly attractive bodyguard. The danger increases when a ruthless assassin begins stalking her, intent on ending the tenuous peace.
Across the northern mountains, Prince Grayson is his father’s ultimate weapon. He carries out the king’s harsh orders because the one person he cares about is his father’s prisoner. Grayson’s silent obedience is tested when his father plans to exploit the marriage alliance between two of their greatest enemies. If Grayson submits, the blood of thousands will spill. If he resists, the girl who means everything to him will die.
The fate of Eyrinthia hangs in the balance. Some want peace. Some want war. All will be thrown into chaos.”
The Kinder Poison by Natalie Mae
“Zahru has long dreamed of leaving the kingdom of Orkena and having the kinds of adventures she’s only ever heard about in stories. But as a lowly Whisperer, her power to commune with animals means that her place is serving in the royal stables until the day her magic runs dry.
All that changes when the ailing ruler invokes the Crossing. A death-defying race across the desert, in which the first of his heirs to finish–and take the life of a human sacrifice at the journey’s end–will ascend to the throne. With all of the kingdom abuzz, Zahru leaps at the chance to change her fate if just for a night by sneaking into the palace for a taste of the revelry. But the minor indiscretion turns into a deadly mistake when she gets caught up in a feud between the heirs and is forced to become the Crossing’s human sacrifice.
Now Zahru’s only hope for survival hinges on the impossible: somehow figuring out how to overcome the most dangerous people in the world.”
Calluna by Jewels Arthur
“Calluna is sassy, snarky, and doesn’t give a crap about, well, anything.
Calluna doesn’t believe in all this love garbage that she keeps seeing all over the town. Nope, she is just fine keeping to herself and her pet store, Beastie Besties, spank you very much.
When a goofy romance book draws her in and she is given a meerkat shifter, a fennec fox shifter, a fallen angel, and a griffin shifter — well, Calluna’s views on love might be in for a whirlwind of change.
Will this whirlwind romance get in the way of the mystery she has yet to solve? There is someone in town cursing animals with dark magic, causing her shop to become a land of misfit pets. Calluna is determined to break the curses and find the culprit but she’ll have to travel down a dark road herself.”
I don’t know! There’s a couple of books that I need to finish to review and some books that I need to review in July. So, I don’t know if I’m going to try and start those, or if I going to take a little time off from reading those review books and read something off my personal tbr.
Happy reading until next time,
