WWW Wednesday

Truth be told, it was to be expected.. My due date is quickly coming closer and we’re still busy getting our home ready for the little one to arrive. In between work, remodeling and trying to relax, there’s family time as well. Juggling it all and trying to squeeze in reading time is proving to be quite the struggle!
But, we’re almost there. At least I am. My pregnancy leave starts next week, which means I’ll be able to focus on myself a bit more and, hopefully, that equals relaxing reading time. Fingers crossed!

But for now, let’s see how my reading went this past week.

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

Current read

Christmas Cookie Baby (SEAL Team: Holiday Heroes #1)Daughter of the Burning City

I finished one of my previous current reads, the other one’s still stuck. I’m honestly not feeling Christmas Cookie Baby at all. The characters are giving me whiplash and.. well.. Let’s just say I’m wondering whether I’ll even bother writing a review? Daughter of the Burning City isn’t proving to be a success either. I thought I’d get lost in a magical circus-like city but.. nope? I’m not feeling it, and since that’s the second book I’m wondering whether it’s the books or me being the issue..

Finished reading

Godsgrave (The Nevernight Chronicle, #2)

On a positive – and equally negative – note, I did finish Godsgrave and, my lord, was that a ride once again! I did see some twists coming but that didn’t take away from my reading experience at all. Mia’s badass and.. so.. real at the same time. Loooove it. And I want more Ash! Too bad the wait is still so long.. On the other hand, that means some extra time to mentally prepare myself. I have this feeling Kristoff will ruin us all.

Reading next

Archenemies (Renegades, #2)

I didn’t pull any other notes from my jar, which means Archenemies is my next read – or supposed to be! I might just pick up one of my ARC’s instead though.. We’ll see! Or maybe succumb to the temptation of The Wicked King?

    1. I haven’t checked any other reviews yet. I want to write my own first, before I find myself influenced by things I read in other reviews [happens sometimes; so frustrating!]. I’ve gotten some reading time in yesterday and hopefully will tonight as well! Really want to finish Daughter of the Burning City and be done with it, haha. :’)

    1. Yeah I’ve heard it ends on a cliffhanger which I hate to begin with so I might have to squeeze it in just so I can know what happens lol. Have you read the novella for this series yet??

    2. I’ve also heard The Wicked King ends on a cilffhanger though.. If that’s true, we’re well and truly ****ed, haha.
      I haven’t! I can’t believe I haven’t either. I haven’t even looked into it yet and I totally should!

    3. Same. Especially if the sequel isn’t even written or released yet.
      Well. Stupid thing is that I now have a set of book buying rules to abide by and.. I don’t want to spend one of my “no rules”-books on a 50 page novella.. 😛

    4. Yeah that’s understandable. It’s a good thing I can’t afford them right now. It gives me the chance to read the books on my shelf and make room for other ones since my bookshelf if overflowing lol.

  1. Yay for pregnancy leave! Hopefully that gives you a little more time to help balance everything. It’s too bad you aren’t feeling your current reads–hopefully that changes soon!

    1. Fingers crossed. There’s so much left to do and get in order, but it’ll already help not to juggle work with everything else. 🙂
      I’m almost finished with one of them. I’m going to try and finish them both before picking up something else. I fear they’ll be stuck on my “currently reading” for ages otherwise!

  2. I’m getting excited to see your baby!!! As for books, I have not finished any and only attempted one so far. Not a good start to my gooodreads goal of 50. Darn reading slumps. Sigh.

    1. Haha – soon! 😀
      Oh boo. It’s awful to start the year like that. But if you’re in a slump.. you’re in it. One of those things you can’t force yourself out of. It usually helps me to read some blurbs of the books on my TBR to get me all hyped up for some of them? Maybe it helps you a bit as well. 🙂 Hope you get rid of it soon!

    1. Oh, you can bet your ass I’ll be doing just that! Or trying to while trying to get our house in order and baby-ready, haha.

      I’m really curious about that one. Especially since Renegades ended with a cliffhanger – albeit one I did see coming at the time. 😛
