[WWW WEDNESDAY] #13

Last week was quite a good reading week for me, even though I’ve been super busy! I managed to finish 5 full length novels and 1 novella, so I really can’t complain about that haha! Most of them are contemporary romance books, so those are always ones I get through fast. 

WWW Wednesday is a weekly book meme article I love to write. In this article, I’ll tell you about what book(s) I last finished reading, What book(s) I’m currently reading and What I’m planning to read next. I also love to hear what all of your WWW’s are so feel free to leave a reply! Happy Reading!

I finally got around to buy myself Safe Distance by Megan Green recently, the first book in the wounded love trilogy. I already read and loved Megan’s sports romance books, the Washington Rampage series, and couldn’t wait to get my hands on these since they’re military fiction and I love military elements in a romance book.

So glad that this one didn’t disappoint! This was such a fantastic reading experience. One that had me laughing out loud, swooning and sobbing like a baby. This one hit me right in the feels.

The story-line wasn’t really surprising and mostly predictable, but the characters are just magnificent and the writing had me so frigging hooked that I really don’t mind a story-line being predictable. This is definitely a book I’d recommend if you love reading romance with some military elements woven into it. Rated 4 stars.

I decided to take the Prince’s Game by Lexi C. Foss with me to Disneyland Paris, the first book in the Mershano Empire series. This is a wonderful contemporary romance. 

In all honesty, I love Lexi’s PNR books more, but she did a wonderful job on this book as well. It was enthralling and funny and the writing was as amazing as always.

This book had me thinking about the Selection by Kiera Cass with the whole dating show thing, but then woven into an adult package. I really liked these characters, as I always do when it comes to a Foss book, and can’t wait to read about the other characters that were introduced in this one.

If you’re looking for a cute, fast paced and lighthearted romance, this is definitely one I’d recommend reading! I rated it 4 stars.

I also took MAYHEM by Jamie Shaw with me to Disney, the first book in the Mayhem series. I wanted to buy and read this book for ages but never gotten around to do so until earlier this month when I bought it through Amazon.

I was in the mood for a rockstar romance and this one looked like it’d be a cute read, which turned out to be right haha.

The story-line was mostly predictable and I wasn’t always a fan of some of the character development particular, but in general this was a book that was fast-paced and one I couldn’t stop reading either haha.

I’d recommend this one if you’re looking for something in between and if you like rockstar romances. This was a fun read and I’m definitely interested in reading the other books as well. I rated this book 3,5 stars.

Honor Reclaimed by Tonya Burrows is the second installment in the HORNET series. Book 1 was a book I loved so so much so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one and continue the series. I also took this one with me to Disney and started reading it on our last day there, so I could finish most of it during our car ride home. This one didn’t disappoint either. This is suspense at its best: thrilling, sexy and fast-paced.

I love how the author has everything so well balanced out. The romance isn’t Too present which leaves a lot of room for story- and character development. This particular book is mostly set in Afghanistan and this was so very interesting.

I love all of the characters in this series and can’t get enough of them. I’m already aching to get my hands on the next book in the series. This is a series I highly recommend if you love romantic suspense with some (ex) military elements.

And last but definitely not least: I finished Son of Chaos & the prequel novella in the Dark Provenance series; Heiress of Bael by Lexi C. Foss. I read the first book in the series earlier this month, Daughter of Death, and was yet again wow’ed by the talent of this author. Lexi’s an extremely talented writer and especially all of her PNR books have rapidly become favorites of mine.

I already loved the Immortal Curse books, her other PNR series, but this series in particular, Dark Provenance, is already one of my all-time faves even though there are only 2 books and a novella out yet. Son of Chaos, the second installment, was such a fast-paced and amazing read yet again.

Lexi’s view on the Angels and Demons is just amazing. I love this world and I looooove these characters so frigging much. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. These books are a MUST-READ if you’re into PNR and definitely if you’re into Angel/Demon reads!

Gladiator Fallon and her warrior sisters must face off against a rival gladiator academy in this lush sequel to the highly anticipated historical fantasy The ValiantThey call her “Victrix” now. Victory. But winning the highest honor ever bestowed upon a gladiatrix in Rome has earned Fallon more deadly enemies outside the arena than she ever faced within it. And it is those dearest to Fallon who will pay the price for her success. Now, Fallon and her warrior sisters are thrust into a vicious conflict with a rival gladiator academy, one that will threaten not only Fallon’s heart – and her love for Roman soldier Cai – but the very heart of the Roman Empire.

I’m currently buddy reading this book with my friends Marie, Candyce and Isabelle.

I did a re-read of the Valiant, book 1 in the series, last month with Marie, and I loved it so much yet again. I’m not that far into this sequel yet, but it’s fast-paced yet again. I really like Lesley’s writing and can’t wait to see how the story is going to develop. 

A new novel in the New York Times–bestselling Remnant Chronicles universe, in which a reformed thief and the young leader of an outlaw dynasty lock wits in a battle that may cost them their lives—and their hearts.

When the patriarch of the Ballenger empire dies, his son, Jase, becomes its new leader. Even nearby kingdoms bow to the strength of this outlaw family, who have always governed by their own rules. But a new era looms on the horizon, set in motion by a young queen, which makes her the target of the dynasty’s resentment and anger.

At the same time, Kazi, a legendary former street thief, is sent by the queen to investigate transgressions against the new settlements. When Kazi arrives in the forbidding land of the Ballengers, she learns that there is more to Jase than she thought. As unexpected events spiral out of their control, bringing them intimately together, they continue to play a cat and mouse game of false moves and motives in order to fulfill their own secret missions.

I’ve also started reading Dance of Thieves by Mary E. Pearson. This is a book I started last year, right after its release. But I got hit with a slump and put it aside not long after that. I was hellhound to pick it up again and finish reading it because I love Mary’s writing and I love this world. I’ve decided to just read it like I read my buddy-read books: a couple of chapters per day. So far, this really works out well. I’m glad to be back in this world and to get aquatinted with these new to me characters. I hope, I’m going to love this book as much as I love the Remnant Chronicles.

Since I was able to tackle a lot of my February TBR books already, I decided to put some extra books on my TBR for the rest of the month. These are mostly books I’ve received for Christmas and am dying to read. I hope I get around to read a lot of them.
