Back to work, but still reading – kind of … [WWW]

Pretty funny that I decided to get back to blogging right before the end of 2021. But, I feel like that means it isn’t some ‘goal of 2022’-thing. Instead it’s me definitely trying to come back to my blog without using the start of a new year as a motivation to do so – if you know what I mean!

WWW Wednesday

But, you’re not here for that! You’re here to see whether or not I actually read this week so let’s get into it! Although I’m always up to giving you some personal updates too, just … let me know if you’re interested in that, I guess?

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

Current read

As predicted, I picked up The Winter of Second Chances because I was totally in the mood for a romantic seasonal read and that one seemed to fit perfectly. I’m about 150 pages in and the thing has over 450 so I don’t think I’ll be finishing it by next week?

Especially since I got totally sidetracked by Talia Hibberts books – again. Since ending my Scribd-subscription, I randomly look at the books I still haven’t read in my Kindle-app and came across Talia’s Just For Him-series. Let’s just say I read the first book in record time and am currently lost in the second one, Undone by the Ex-Con.

Scratch that last sentence – future Kathy, aka the one who got some reading done earlier today is here! I finished Undone by the Ex-Con and will be starting Sweet on the Greek, the third book, later today probably. Don’t have time to switch up the images last minute since I have some meetings and a ton of cooking [spaghetti sauce!] to do, yikes.

Finished reading

After finishing The Shadow in the Glass, I honestly didn’t know how to feel. I needed more out of that ending, even though I did enjoy the rest of the story. The writing is very descriptive and it takes a while to get to the point sometimes but I enjoyed it. Guess I was in the mood for that kind of writing!
I wrote a short review on Goodreads, but I’m currently not up to posting reviews on my blog – maybe that’ll change, maybe it won’t but for now I’m okay with just posting whatever I feel like.

Of course, as said above, I also read Bad for the Boss by Talia Hibbert. Although I absolutely adore The Brown Sisters, this one didn’t really do it for me? Like, I enjoyed it but I was missing something and I cannot put my finger on what exactly. Frustratingly so!

Reading next

I have no idea what I’m reading next. Maybe I’ll binge on those Talia Hibbert books, or maybe I won’t pick up anything new at all? Who knows. So … I’m not putting anything here! You’ll just have to see next week.

What are you reading?
What’s one of your most anticipated releases this year?

  1. I like the personal updates, too (if you’re happy to share them, of course!) Yours was one of the first book blogs I read while thinking of starting my own – so it’s always nice to see your posts on my feed!

    I just finished The Princess Rules by Philippa Gregory – I’ve never read her historical fiction but really enjoyed this book of fairytales and the illustrations!


    1. I’ll be sharing bits and pieces, haha! And ooh, then you’ve been around for a while now, I assume. Since my blog was basically gathering dust for almost two years, haha. Hope you’re still as much in love with blogging as I always have been!

      Ooh, that cover looks so fun! I’m not one for historical fiction in general, haha. I do attempt reading more books for younger ages since I want my kid to have some fun options whenever he gets to the point of actually reading – and wanting to read English books. 😀

    1. Hm, I can’t argue with that but somehow I feel like I could’ve used a bit more if that makes any sense? I keep wondering what the actual hell happened with her, haha.


    1. It does sound like a fun read! Especially since I often wondered what it’d be like to just pack up my things and leave. Not that it’s an option still, with Jamie and all, haha.

    2. So far it’s been pretty funny. I hope it continues like that because the reviews aren’t always so good when it comes to this book. It would be nice to just pack up and leave and start over fresh somewhere but I can’t afford it lol.


    1. Haha, it’s so weird putting personal stuff on here, what with the new partner and all. I don’t even think he realizes he’ll be mentioned here as well, haha. Thank you! You too!

    1. Looked it up and it sounds.. complicated. But that’s definitely because I’ve never been a fan of history and historical fiction. Think I got too traumatised by it at school all those years ago, to be honest.

    2. Can definitely understand that view! I’ve read some historical fiction but it’s a huge hit or miss when it comes to the genre. I did enjoy The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue so I think I’ll give the sequel a go. 🙂
