“WWW” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Taking On A World of Words.
Hi everybody, and welcome to a new WWW Wednesday! For this post, we’ll be answering three questions (the 3 Ws):
- What did you recently finish reading?
- What are you currently reading?
- What do you think you’ll read next?
I just finished listening to The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata on audiobook.
I’ve been wanting to go through Mariana Zapata’s backlist and this was one of the books on it. Though it’s not my favorite read by her, I still highly enjoyed the story of Vanessa and Aiden. It was a fun take on the marriage of convenience trope and of course, the slow burn was excruciatingly well done.
I am currently listening to It Happened One Summer by Tessa Bailey on audiobook.
This has been such a popular and hyped romance, but for some reason I kept putting it off. But now I finally picked it up and am about halfway in and I’m already in love with Piper and Brendan. But OMG, this is way steamier than I expected. Kind of awkward when I’m listening in the car on my commute…
I also JUST started reading When Gracie Met The Grump by Mariana Zapata on ebook.
I’m only one chapter in so it’s a bit too early to say anything yet, other than I’m super intrigued how the superhero aspect will work in this story.
I am also STILL reading Blade and Rose by Miranda Honfleur on ebook.
I’ve been reading this for over a month now? I still want to read on as I think I could really like this given the right mood and timing, but at the moment I’m hardly making any progress and the prospect of reading further doesn’t entice me either. I think it’s even making me feel slumpy. I may need to give up on this one.
Honestly, I’ve been feeling a little slumpy and have hardly read anything all month. I wanted to read a few atmospheric and spooky reads for spooky season, but I’m not sure it’ll be happening as I seem to only crave rom-coms right now. Any tips for reads that may get me out of this slump? These are a few possibilities, either more rom-coms or somewhat spooky re-reads.
I’ve been seeing Grace MZ book on my Kindle ads a lot lately and I’m admittedly curious about it. I can’t wait to see what you think of it. Happy reading!
I’m about 15% in so it’s still early, but I definitely want to keep on reading – it’s such a different vibe from the other books I’ve read by her and it’s intriguing 🙂
Ninth House is perfect for spooky season!!
It really is! I may not get to it in October anymore, but that’s okay because spooky season should be all year long anyway haha 🙂
I LOVED It Happened One Summer! I did pick up some seasonal reads, but now seem to be back on romance!
It Happened One Summer was definitely a fun read, I’m glad I picked it up!
The Wall of Winnipeg and Me was the first I read from Zapata and I think it’s still my favorite. I love seeing Written in Red! I’ve the entire Others series 3 or 4 times and love it so much. One of my all-time faves. 🙂
I ended up really loving The Wall of Winnipeg and Me, but it took me a long time to warm up to Aiden, which is probably why it’s not my favorite. But that’s not to say I didn’t love it overall, because I did! 🙂 I loved Written in Red, but I haven’t continued with the series since then and I think it’s a format thing – I want to try them on audio instead of physical copy, starting with a Written in Red re-read/listen 🙂
That Zapata book was my first read by her and I loved it. It will always be in my favorites of hers. You should read Wait for It next. It’s her friend Diana’s book. I’m glad you’re enjoying Bailey’s book. Hers are steamy, so warning for all future reads too. 😉 I have to admit I had some Washington state accuracy issues with both her books, but most people wouldn’t notice that. I started Gracie last week and got to about 33% in and decided to take a break. I need to get back to it. Happy reading!
Oh, I was doubting between Wait for It and Hands Down, as I heard that was Zak’s book but it had some mixed reviews… Wait for It is up next on my Mariana Zapata TBR then 🙂 Well, after Gracie and the Grump, which I’m also still reading – it’s been slow so far but I’m still intrigued. Hope you’ll like it after your reading break!
I’m sorry there were some inaccuracies concerning the Washington setting in the Bellinger sister books. I can definitely understand that would be a downside if it’s about a place you know very well!
I am now at 40% in Gracie. I’m hoping it starts to pick up soon.
Yes, I would do Wait for It before Hands Down. That one was written later.
Ooh I just finished Ninth House. I didn’t love it as much as some people did but it’s definitely a spooky read!
Oh I’m sorry you didn’t love Ninth House as much as expected, but it’s definitely a great read for spooky season!
I hope you enjoy NINTH HOUSE. I loved it and I’m looking forward to reading the sequel at some point.
I had the chance to meet both authors who make up Christina Lauren last night, but I couldn’t go due to my pinched nerve. I was so bummed. 🙁
I definitely loved Ninth House, this would be a re-read for me as that usually helps get me out of slumps. So excited for the sequel indeed!
Aww, I’m sorry to hear you couldn’t meet Christina Lauren after all. That’s definitely a bummer. I hope you’ll get another opportunity to meet them in the future!
I still need to read Hook, Line & Sinker!! I hope you like It Happened One Summer!!
I’m currently reading Hook, Line & Sinker and I’m liking it so far, even more than It Happened One Summer!
Oh, that’s great to hear!!
I finally read It Happened One Summer this past August, but I was warned about the steaminess. Otherwise I’d have been shocked too! LOL
A sort of rom-com that works well for spooky season too is Love in the Time of Serial Killers.

Haha, it was definitely a surprise for me. A little awkward when I listen on audio on my commute and those scenes come up when the car is standing still in front of a red light or something and pedestrians are walking by – always makes me turn down the sound haha 🙂
It Happened One Summer is definitely a steamy one, haha!
It really is so steamy, I was not expecting that 🙂
