WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Wars. So here what I have read/are reading/will be reading.

The Three Ws are:

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


Personal

Is it possible to recatch a cold? Because I spent this weekend laid up with the same exact cold that knocked me out last weekend. Except it was worse. Again, I lived on Dayquil and Nightquil. Today is the first day since Friday that I have felt 100%.

It is officially the second semester of school. Miss B and I had a long talk about her schoolwork and what the expectations are. I also told her that she won’t be able to try out for softball this year if she continues to NOT turn her work in. Which made a huge impact on her. She wants to play softball.

Mr. Z is developing an attitude. His attitude is getting him in trouble. As of this morning, he no longer has his phone or Xbox. All because he copped an attitude with me when I asked him if he had done his morning chores. Which aren’t much and take him about 15 mins in total to do.

Miss R is being her 5-year-old self. Last night, while taking a shower, she told me that she was a wrinkly old man. I asked her why and she said: “Because of my fingers” in this derp mom voice. I have learned to say “Ok” and move on.

Reading/Reviews:

One of my favorite authors contacted me and asked if I would review the next book in her series. I was beyond thrilled. I am reviewing The Betrayer by Rebecca Neely. I wasn’t expecting the email and I seriously did a happy dance around my living room.

I am doing good with reviews. Right now, I am not behind with any. If anything, I am writing reviews for as far out as August. So, I am in a good place (knock on wood). Even with being sick, I was still able to push out quite a few reviews over the weekend.


What I am currently reading:

There is no escaping a Reaper. I am an elite assassin, part of a brotherhood that only answers to Death. And when Death says your time is up, I’m coming for you…

Serving Death and the Reapers has been my life for centuries. I’ve always put my duty before everything, even my yearning for Death. But now, she’s fading – our foe is bent on destroying her and he will stop at nothing until he does. Death holds the key to our survival. I will do everything in my power to stop her from disappearing. For her, I will ensure we have the best fighting chance. For her…I will cross the divide keeping us apart.

This is a full length Reaper novel.

I am not too far into reading this book. I read about 2 chapters before going to sleep. But, I am happy that Death is getting her romance!! And I can’t wait to learn about her backstory. Dark Alpha’s Awakening is currently on preorder. It’s expected publication date is February 5th, 2019. Be on the lookout for my review after that date.


What I recently finished reading:

Her: Unstoppable, workaholic, driven force of nature. Him: The exact opposite of that.

Phebe Stark needs a punching bag. No, on second thought, she needs a donut. No, on third thought, she needs to escape into a dark bar with a strong drink. She’s just been harassed, for the umpteenth time, by the slimy supervisor standing between her and a shattered glass ceiling at her high-pressure Atlanta firm. But then a tall, bearded, sexy lumberjack of a bartender saunters over, and suddenly Phebe knows she doesn’t need gin . . . she needs him.

Brody Cantrell didn’t exactly intend to become a bartender. He planned to help out at his ailing uncle’s bar for a year, then get an advanced degree and rise to the top of his field. Instead, he got a Ph.D. in Real Life from his customers. Brody thinks he’s seen everything—until he meets Phebe Stark. And when he gets a load of her fearless sexting skills, he just has to see what’s under that power suit. Brody’s certain they’ll have a good time or two—nothing serious. Then again, all these steamy messages and breathless trysts have him seriously considering . . . Why not?

I was stoked to be reading Let’s Talk About Sext. Then I read it. All I have to say is that I was beyond disappointed. Let’s Talk About Sext is currently on preoder. It’s expected publication date is February 19th, 2019. Be on the lookout for my review after that date.


What books I think I’ll read next? (click on the pictures for Amazon links)

From the New York Times bestselling author of How to Walk Away comes a stunning new novel about family, hope, and learning to love against all odds. 

Cassie Hanwell was born for emergencies. As one of the only female firefighters in her Texas firehouse, she’s seen her fair share of them, and she’s excellent at dealing with other people’s tragedies. But when her estranged and ailing mother asks her to uproot her life and move to Boston, it’s an emergency of a kind Cassie never anticipated.

The tough, old-school Boston firehouse is as different from Cassie’s old job as it could possibly be. Hazing, a lack of funding, and poor facilities mean that the firemen aren’t exactly thrilled to have a “lady” on the crew, even one as competent and smart as Cassie. Except for the handsome rookie, who doesn’t seem to mind having Cassie around. But she can’t think about that. Because she doesn’t fall in love. And because of the advice, her old captain gave her: don’t date firefighters. Cassie can feel her resolve slipping…but will she jeopardize her place in a career where she’s worked so hard to be taken seriously?

Katherine Center’s Things You Save in a Fire is a heartfelt, affecting novel about life, love, and the true meaning of courage.

I got this book because of the cover. Isn’t it beautiful? Then I read the blurb and thought “Hmmmm, sounds good.” Things You Save in a Fire is currently on preorder. Its expected publication date is August 13th, 2019. Be on the lookout for my review after that date.

Strong-willed and stubborn, Kathryn Nugle enters a man’s profession, untested, inexperienced, and determined to solve a decades-old puzzle.

Intuition flagged her client’s deception but didn’t solve the mystery of his jacket’s crimson stain, yet blood doesn’t lie. When the victim leaves damning evidence behind, fate throws Kathryn into a cascade of events that will challenge her survival skills.
Mathew McAllister is the eldest of six siblings, all current or former detectives. Practical jokes and pranks are part and parcel of his daily life. The newest addition to the family fold is a wisecracking hacker who mangles his strained equanimity and tests his patience in Morse code, security breaches, and invasion of his cherished privacy.
When a vicious murder paints a target on one of their own, the McAllisters close ranks to ferret out the twisted intentions of a serial killer. For fans of Sandra Brown and Lee Child, Shattered Reflections is an exciting thriller with a romantic twist.

I was pretty excited when Reily asked me to review Shattered Reflections. I have reviewed the other books in the series and they were fantastic. Plus, I was wondering when Matthew was getting his own book…lol. Shattered Reflections is currently on preorder. Its expected publication date is February 3rd, 2019. Be on the lookout for my review after that date.

Juliette loves Nate. She will follow him anywhere. She’s even become a flight attendant for his airline so she can keep a closer eye on him.

They are meant to be.

The fact that Nate broke up with her six months ago means nothing. Because Juliette has a plan to win him back. She is the perfect girlfriend. And she’ll make sure no one stops her from getting exactly what she wants.

True love hurts, but Juliette knows it’s worth all the pain…

I am pretty excited to read The Perfect Girlfriend. I have seen reviews for it floating around the blogosphere and they have all been great. The Perfect Girlfriend is currently on preorder (through Graydon House). It’s expected publication date is March 26th, 2019. Be on the lookout for my review after that date.

IT’S TIME TO FLIRT WITH A MAN IN A KILT 

Cassie Crow, a pop-culture reporter for a TV talk show, is focused on becoming a “serious” journalist. But when she stumbles into a kilted Highlander with a killer accent, Cassie decides that taking one night off from work and spending it with a sexy Scot couldn’t hurt. . .

Logan Reid has built a career on his charm, hosting a series of off-the-wall hijinks on the Web. But when the Scottish prankster meets the all-American, equal parts intelligent and irresistible Cassie, Logan realizes that one night of fun won’t be enough. Could it be that this career-focused, commitment-phobic couple is finally ready to take a chance at true and lasting love?

I’ll be honest here. I decided on this book because of the title. It made me laugh. Also, the cover is sweet. Plus, I love all things Scottish, so yeah. Getting Hot with the Scot is currently on preorder. Its expected publication date is April 30th, 2019. Be on the lookout for my review after that date.


So that’s it. Be on the lookout for the reviews of all these books in the near future.

Have you read any of these books?

Let me know what you thought of them!!
