WWW Wednesday: September 30th 2020

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

The Three Ws are:

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


Personal:

Miss R had her 7th birthday yesterday. We celebrated with just immediate family and a pretty cool unicorn cake. She had a ball at her party and loved that she got unicorn themed things (a unicorn phone case and a unicorn Nintendo Switch cover).

Miss R is also getting hardware installed next week. She’s getting a lip bumper for her lower teeth and a retainer for her upper teeth. Oddly, she is excited to get those. I don’t think she understands what they do (we did explain).

School is going good for all 3 kids. Miss R had her first week of in person learning last week. She loved everything except for wearing a mask all the time. But, in her words, “If I have to do it to go to school, then I’ll do it”. She’s on remote learning for the next two weeks and then back to school with her. A huge plus, in her eyes, is that were only 3-4 kids in each class. So the teacher had time to work one on one with each kid after the Zoom call ended.

As I said in the last post, I am going to try to start posting reviews. With my kids on a schedule, I can finally dedicate some time to doing bloggy things. Which includes writing blog posts. So, keep your eyes peeled for a review next week (I hope!!).


What I am currently reading:

Fairytale

The perfect book for the holidays: Cinderella set amid the wine-making estates of modern-day Napa Valley, complete with an evil Parisian stepmother.

Deeply in love, Christophe and Joy Lammenais built Chateau Lammenais into a small but renowned Napa Valley winery and an idyllic home where they raised their beloved daughter, Camille, who takes on increasing responsibilities for the estate they all treasure. But after Joy’s early death from breast cancer just after Camille’s graduation from Stanford, a lonely Christophe soon falls prey to the machinations of a sophisticate from his native France—who moves, with her two reprobate sons, to consolidate her power over Camille and the property when Christophe is killed in a plane crash. With a French “fairy godmother” on the scene, however, the son of a neighboring vintner to assist, and a grand Harvest Ball on the horizon, lovely Camille may make some potent magic of her own….

What books I think I’ll read next:

Paper Butterflies

June’s life at home with her stepmother and stepsister is a dark one—and a secret one. She is trapped like a butterfly in a net.

But then June meets Blister, a boy in the woods. In him she recognises the tiniest glimmer of hope that perhaps she can find a way to fly far, far away from her home and be free. Because every creature in this world deserves their freedom… But at what price?

Before I Let Go

Best friends Corey and Kyra were inseparable in their snow-covered town of Lost Creek, Alaska. When Corey moves away, she makes Kyra promise to stay strong during the long, dark winter, and wait for her return.

Just days before Corey is to return home to visit, Kyra dies. Corey is devastated―and confused. The entire Lost community speaks in hushed tones about the town’s lost daughter, saying her death was meant to be. And they push Corey away like she’s a stranger.

Corey knows something is wrong. With every hour, her suspicion grows. Lost is keeping secrets―chilling secrets. But piecing together the truth about what happened to her best friend may prove as difficult as lighting the sky in an Alaskan winter…

A Game of Lust (Throne of Thorne Book 1)

I can and do have supermodels, singers, actresses–anyone I want. So why then did this innocent, blushing girl at the coffee shop I go to every morning keep drawing my attention?

I gave in. I had to. Had to have her. It was supposed to be just once. It wasn’t supposed to make me feel anything. It was physical. I wanted her body, that was all.

Or so I convinced myself.

Since that night, though, I can’t stop thinking about her. No other woman exists for me.

But now my fame and recklessness might have ruined everything.

Line of Fire

Go home. Sweetest frickin’ words a Navy SEAL can ever hear.
Not this time.
Tragedy set my world on fire.
They say home is where the heart is. And my heart still belongs to Emma Flannigan.
But, she’s not the same. She’s had it rough as well, and now she even has a kid.
She fights our desires at first, and I know she’s off limits — but it’s useless.
I’m a trained killer and no fight will keep me from having her.
Covert missions are what I do
.
And Operation Emma is about to go down.

Line Of Fire is a standalone Navy SEAL second chance romance with no cheating, no cliffhanger and a guaranteed HEA! I’ve also included a bonus book for your reading pleasure and a sneak peek of my upcoming book, Mick – a Military MC Romance!
Enjoy!
Intended for readers 18+ due to Kindle-melting scenes and other mature content. You’ll need a cold shower after reading this one!

    1. Honestly, I am having a hard time getting into Fairytale. I’m giving it one more day before DNF’ing it. I like Danielle Steel but this book is dragging!!! Hope you enjoy your reads also (they all look super interesting!!).

  1. It sounds like school is a bit better with some in person and some online. My grandkids are going everyday. My granddaughter in JK only has kids in her class and my grandson in gr. 2 has about 15, so not too bad. That Danielle Steel books sounds good, not her usual fare. Enjoy your upcoming reads Jolie.

    1. It is gotten a lot better. Miss B and Miss R want to go back full time. Mr Z is enjoying learning at home….lol. I wasn’t a fan of the Danielle Steel book, to be honest.

      1. I have about 8 of her books on my physical bookshelf, I should grab one for old time’s sake. Funny that one wants to do online while the others want to go to school. Different personalities.
