WWW WEDNESDAY - DECEMBER 16th

December 16, 2020


WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Sam @ Taking on a World of Words.

The three W’s stand for:

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

I still haven't picked up the pace with my reading, but I'm absolutely cool with that. I'm loving reading what I want when I want. I've spent a ton of time with my daughters (even more than usual during this forced isolation) and we're going to be starting a group read soon. I am so excited for it! I hope you've been having an amazing reading week and that your next reads are phenomenal ones.

What I've Read


A Cowboy Under the Mistletoe by Crimson Syn - 3 ★ - a dirty MC romance with the author's usual flair.
Dream Chaser by Kristen Ashley - 4 ★ - I enjoyed being back in the world of Rock Chicks and Dream Men that KA has created. Boone and Ryn had their own share of drama and entertained me well.
Cursed by N. Isabelle Blanco - 4 ★ - this was a dark and dirty paranormal story. I've loved everything this author has written.

What I'm Reading

After receiving a frantic letter from her newly-wed cousin begging for someone to save her from a mysterious doom, Noemí Taboada heads to High Place, a distant house in the Mexican countryside. She’s not sure what she will find—her cousin’s husband, a handsome Englishman, is a stranger, and Noemí knows little about the region.

Noemí is also an unlikely rescuer: She’s a glamorous debutante, and her chic gowns and perfect red lipstick are more suited for cocktail parties than amateur sleuthing. But she’s also tough and smart, with an indomitable will, and she is not afraid: Not of her cousin’s new husband, who is both menacing and alluring; not of his father, the ancient patriarch who seems to be fascinated by Noemí; and not even of the house itself, which begins to invade Noemi’s dreams with visions of blood and doom.

Her only ally in this inhospitable abode is the family’s youngest son. Shy and gentle, he seems to want to help Noemí, but might also be hiding dark knowledge of his family’s past. For there are many secrets behind the walls of High Place. The family’s once colossal wealth and faded mining empire kept them from prying eyes, but as Noemí digs deeper she unearths stories of violence and madness.

And Noemí, mesmerized by the terrifying yet seductive world of High Place, may soon find it impossible to ever leave this enigmatic house behind.

What I'll Read Next

I won't lie... I'm a little embarrassed that I still have no actual plans for what I plan to read. Only a little though. For the most part, I'm enjoying the freedom.

  4. I'm really curious to hear what you think of Mexican Gothic. I've only heard a few thoughts from a couple of trusted blogger friends on it, so I want to know if you feel the way they did when they read it. I haven't read it yet myself. I think I need one more trusted opinion before I dig in. Happy reading!
