Current Reads

  • A Pinch of Magic by Michelle Harrison: This is the January pick for Middle Grade Marvels and I’m so glad that it won the poll! I’ve been wanting to read this book for quite some time and now I get to read it with a bunch of great, bookish people 💕 So far, I’m really loving this book and especially our three main characters. I do love a book with a good family dynamic and the three Widdershins sisters are wonderful! I’m also enjoying that this book is a bit darker than I was originally anticipating. It makes for a great reading experience!
  • The Unadjusteds by Marisa Noelle: I’m reading this book for a blog tour hosted by The Write Reads cause I can’t say no to Dave 😂 I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this one beyond the fact that it was sci-fi and was being compared to The Hunger Games. So far, I can definitely where that comparison comes from! This is super fast-paced and I’m enjoying the ride!
  • The Darkwater Bride by Marty Ross: In attempt to actually listen to the many audiobooks I have downloaded through Audible, I randomly picked one and started listening. Thus discovering this interesting dramatization! I’m enjoying the story, so far, but the best thing about this book is definitely the cast. They are doing an incredible job! The main female character kinda makes me want to shake her, but perhaps that urge will lessen as the story goes on.

  • The Dragon Republic by R.F. Kuang: I started the year with a strong one, y’all. Well, I technically started this in 2020, but I finished it in early January. And it was so gooooood 😭 I don’t know if it hurt me as much as The Poppy War, but it certainly made me want to fight a few characters! The writing was just as incredible and immersive as the first book. Now I just have one more book is this amazing trilogy to read and I’m nervous, y’all. It promises nothing but pain and I’m willingly gonna read it, lol.
  • Fly Free by Allison Rose: I read this book for my first blog tour of 2021! This one was with Storytellers on Tour and I found myself enjoying this interesting faerie story. It has a lot of politics and a lot of intrigue, which I really enjoyed. I wish there we delved a bit more into the magic of the world, but I still found myself having a good time. You can read my full review here!
  • Take a Hint, Dani Brown by Talia Hibbert: My first romance of 2021 (a genre I’m slowly dipping into) and, y’all, I loved it so much! This was just as cute, if not cuter, than the first book in the series, Get a Life, Chloe Brown. I think I loved it even more because both of our main characters are bookish in one way or another and just, yes, give me more. It also had the perfect amount of steaminess for me. I can’t wait to read about the last Brown sisters love story in Act Your Age, Eve Brown, which comes out sometime this year.
  • The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie: This was our Write Reads gang book club pick for January (well… one of them) and reading this with the group was so much fun! I super didn’t guess who the murder was and I think it was very cleverly wrought. The ending left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth, but this was still an intriguing read. It made me want to read more Christie, that’s for sure!

What’s Next

  • The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie: Speaking of wanting to read more Christie… I may have joined in a readalong because I have no self controoooool 😂 Honestly, though, I want to read more books with the ridiculous genius that is Poirot and now I have people to read along with me! I think it will make the experience that much more enjoyable.
  • Wench by Maxine Kaplan: This is a book I’ve been wanting to read for awhile and I was lucky enough to be accepted for the TBR & Beyond Tours blog tour for it! It features a tavern wench fighting to keep control of the tavern where she’s worked since she was a child. There’s a quest, there’s magic, and it sounds like it will be a Medieval good time! I’m highly looking forward to reading it.

That’s it for another WWW Wednesday! What have you read recently? What are some books up next on your TBR? Let me know in the comments!

And, as always, happy reading!
