Oh What A Week It Has Been! What Did You Finish? What Are You Reading And What Is Up Next?! Gomez, Who Is Apparently More Famous Than I Even Knew- Is DYING To Know!

It is Wednesday and that means WWW World of Words, hosted weekly by Taking on a World of Words.

What is WWW Wednesday?

  1. What are you currently reading?
  2. What did you recently finish reading?
  3. What do you plan on reading next?


Ok so this week is still going to be a little thrown off because of last week.

Just let me catch all the things up and next week will resume to normal- except the trucks will be here in a week and …

Then they will leave and I will drink heavily in an empty apartment– because mom won’t let me when she gets here.

Below is an approximation on my week because I did this on Monday- so I guesstimated

quickly eta-*I also forgot to schedule it and just hit send before my doctor’s appointment-whoops*


What did you recently finish reading?

And right off the bat- that is a COMPLETE lie.

I DIDN’T just finish it. BUT I did just write the review- and if you haven’t ordered Gravemaidens? GO – GO NOW. It is a MUST READ.

And spread the word like wildfire.

Without Sacrificing Character or Plot Development Kelly Coon’s Debut Gravemaidens Is Beautifully Deadly But Bonded Forever By Sisterhood- Out 10/29 – Blog Tour Stop Two

 It would also be a complete lie if I said Liam wasn’t sitting right, RIGHT next to me licking his… you know. But my life right now…

WHY YES. YES I DID- last week… Ok not this week- but the review was this week and, and…  AND HOLY WHAT THE MESS?
IT BLEW ME OFF MY FEET AND BOUNCED ME OFF THE ARCH (unfortunately not straight to Colorado Springs with all my stuff- because if Liam doesn’t stop he’s getting left here). 

Mystery, Magic And Guinevere As An Unreliable Narrator? YES! PLEASE! The Guinevere Deception (Camelot Rising #1) By Kiersten White Rides Into Camelot 11/5

Aaaaand, apparently Becky didn’t beat me to it!

Now maybe I can stop lying, maybe, huh? Because HOLY HELL, YES!

Devastatingly Honest, Entwined With Magic, Ninth House, By Leigh Bardugo Unapologetically Takes No Prisoners

A Kingdom for a Stage (For a Muse of Fire #2)

Kingdom for A Stage by Heidi Heilig

Why yes, yes I did- And I – <le sigh>- the review is forthcoming- my feels are in the way- and I haven’t decided on the approach yet.

And before everyone goes and thinks I just love all the things- need I remind everyone of the recent reading lows? There was… Pivot, Verify, Memory Thief, a few DNFs I won’t mention and lord knows I’m happily forgetting something… and those were just the LOWS… there were a couple “ehs” in there… 

So, yeah. I EARNED THIS- plus, again. I read Gravemaidens like a month ago, or more, and Guinevere’s Deception last week. So come at me bro… and even if it was all puppy dogs and rainbows… it is my site.

Yup. Game of Thrones. With a sabre… I blasphemed. On purpose.
