WWW Wednesday

The weekly reading update! I was thinking about doing it biweekly, but.. to be honest, I’m such a creature of habit and I kind of love doing these posts so.. why not just stick to the weekly ones and risk repeating myself over and over?
I haven’t  really read all that much although the sleepless nights with Jamie definitely helped a bit to get some reading in. Now I’m simply struggling with reading physical books? It isn’t easy combining that with holding a baby non-stop! And yes, I truly am holding him non-stop. It’s hard letting go – already, haha.

Anyway, let’s see what I read at night!

As always, covers link back to the Goodreads-page, so feel free to check them out!

Current read

The Dark Descent Of Elizabeth Frankenstein

I started The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein a couple of days ago and.. it’s a weird read so far? Basically Elizabeth is looking for Victor Frankenstein, who took off a long time ago and she hadn’t heard from for months. We have no clue why he left, why she suddenly has to find him and.. that’s not even mentioning all the questions surrounding Henry and a letter he supposedly wrote? No clue what’s in that letter! So.. I’m kind of feeling like I’m just reading to read without.. an actual goal at this point.
I have to say there have been some scenes that freaked me out though. Cutting open animals and all.. Yikes.

Finished reading

The Prep and the Punk (The Boys Only #1)When The Tik-Tik Sings

I managed to finish the two books that were on my “currently reading” last week! So proud of myself! Especially since, with finishing When the Tik-Tik Sings, I’ve succeeded at Monstrous March – yay me! Even more proud about not DNFing the thing because I was really tempted to..
As for The Prep and the Punk; there’s a review coming your way eventually! Usually I don’t review my Kindle freebies on the blog, but this one deserved it so.. that’s saying plenty, right?

Reading next

Once & Future (Once & Future, #1)

I need to start on Once & Future STAT. It’s release is upon us and I haven’t even started reading it yet. I’ve managed to always read and review my ARC’s on time so fingers crossed I won’t ruin this magical streak. And if I do.. So be it. Not putting any pressure on myself when it comes to my ARC’s; there’s more important things in my life after all.

ARC overview

A Pack of Blood and LiesAnd We Call It LoveFix Her UpOnce & Future (Once & Future, #1)

No new additions – again. Although I did want to add to them? But, alas. I’m getting denied and rejected all over the place when it comes to ARC’s lately. No fun feeling but whatever.

How has your reading been?

  1. I pre-ordered Once & Future and apparently it shipped but i haven’t gotten it yet 😦 I’m curious what you’ll think of it!


    1. Ooh really?! My pre-order JUST arrived today 😀 I put it on my April TBR, so I hope I’ll actually get to it soon!


    2. I’m still not finished reading it, but I’m very tempted to get myself a finished copy as well, haha. The queer rep is amazing and, even though I do have “some” issues with it, I can’t get over the cover either. It’s so pretty. :’)

    3. Honestly it’s very personal. Three characters are named Kay, Val and Lam and I keep confusing them with one another since they’re all three letter-names with a’s. 😂
      There are also some evolutions in relationships we don’t really see happening. The story simply jumps and ‘this happened during that jump’. Since I love seeing relationships evolve, it irks me at times. 😅

    4. Wow! Those really are very similar names and it would definitely bother me too. I once read this book where two women had names starting with A and of similar lengths, and for several chapters I thought they were the same.


  2. I think you are doing amazing especially considering you have a new baby. I would be passed out or to tired to even hold a book. I just finished Never Fade by Alexandra Bracken. I have so many books I need to read that I have no clue what I’m going to pick up next at this point.


    1. Honestly, the “trick” is to sleep when the baby’s sleeping and you feel like sleeping as well. Instead of forcing yourself to get things done during those hours, you’re better of doing what your body needs. Do that and.. well.. you do have some energy to do other things – like reading, haha.
      I’m not even trying to decide on my next reads at this point. It’s simply whatever catches my eye at this point. Mood-reading is healthy!

  3. Ohh Kathy I’m excited to hear what you think of Once & Future,I got lucky enough to read that one already and I liked it, but… I think I also expected more from it? :/
    Happy reading!! ❤


  4. Once & Future looks interesting! I’m interested in the Arthurian myths so I’m pretty excited for this one. And yes, sometimes I put off reading ARCs (but the NetGalley ratio nags at me). Sometimes I change my mind and read them (because ratio), sometimes I just can’t do it because it’s just not interesting anymore.


    1. I’m not too far in yet, but so far I’m liking it! Especially since there are a LOT of queer characters.
      Haha, the NG ratio is hell. I honestly hate how it all depends on that ratio. Even though mine is always in a good place, I can’t help but get annoyed the moment it goes down. :’)
