WWW WEDNESDAY - DECEMBER 2ND

December 02, 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've been going with the flow and actually found some interesting reads. It's been Paranormal/Fantasy week in my house, so all of my reads followed that theme. I think my slump days are over, which might have something to do with the amount of time I've put into playing on my Switch. My kids and I have been playing Animal Crossing New Horizons together and it's made for tons of fun. Between that game and a few others (I still haven't opened my Luigi's Mansion), I've been having an amazing week. I still haven't put together a recap for November, but I've started to work on a list of my favorite reads of the year. So that's something!

What I've Read


Wing and a Prayer by Amy Cissell - ★★★☆☆ - it's a novella that is part of a series (I'm guessing). This story was about a fallen angel who has to decide which side he wants to fight on in the upcoming (possible) apocalypse.
Devil's Claim by Dariel Raye & Muffy Wilson - DNF - I couldn't take one more second reading the heroine's pov. I think it had more to do with my mood than the writing of the authors. I may pick it up again some day.
Before the Fall by Colleen S. Myers - ★★★☆☆ - this was quite the interesting world that the author created. The characters seemed to be birdlike humanoids and they were intriguing. I'm interested enough to probably read something else from the series.
Wings of the Wraith by Khardine Gray - ★★★☆☆ - I really enjoyed this prequel and am a bit disappointed that the author hasn't continued to write this series. If you know any different, please let me know because I would definitely read the next book.
Angels of the Triad: Sariel by Maddie Wade - ★★★☆☆ - I fell in love with the hero of this story and would love the chance to read more about him. The heroine was growing on me and I'm absolutely intrigued by the other angels. The author really needs to write some more of this series.

What I'm Reading


Straightened Out by Janine Infante Bosco
I'm a mob boss with a tarnished name, leading a kingdom in the shadows of disgrace.
She's a ballerina, the sister of my underboss, dancing her way through life.
Until her, all I wanted was to be straightened out.
But with power comes sacrifice.
With respect comes fear.
With love comes death.
The rule of the streets is to take or be taken.
Some legends are born, others are made.
But not all survive.

Depends On Who's Asking by Lani Lynn Vale
It was the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring…nope. No. Nuh-uh. That’s a lie.
The moment that Caro wakes up, she knows that she’s not alone.
One thump-thump from the living room and she quickly moves into action.
One 9-1-1 call later, and she’s ready to defend herself.
Only, she gets more than she bargains for when she steps out into her living room and comes face to face with a living, breathing nightmare.
And isn’t it just fitting that the man that saves her by coming down the chimney with a large black gun in his hand is named Saint Nicholas?
***
It seemed like the start of a bad joke.
Saint Nicholas comes down the chimney on Christmas Eve night, but he isn’t there to bear gifts. He’s there to take out the trash.
When he lands on his silent feet, he has no other choice but to put himself in harm’s way.
One look at Caro’s terrified face, and he can’t stop himself.
He steps in just as the bullets start flying, saving the damsel in distress and taking a bullet to the shoulder for his trouble.
But one thing he can say is, heroes always win the girl.
And Caro is the best Christmas miracle of all.

What I'll Read Next

I'm loving this whole 'going with the flow' thing I've been doing. Now that my reading mood has improved (slightly), I'm hoping to keep it up. I'll probably stick to books by authors I've already read and loved. I would hate to fall into a slump again when we're so close to the new year.

  3. Yay for the end of slumps! I'm glad fantasy and paranormal reads are helping you out. I've been binging on some Karla Sorensen books. She's a new to me author for this year and I'm enjoying catching up on her backlist. It's all about mood reading for the end of 2020.
