Welcome to my Weekend Wrap-Up! This is where I discuss books I acquired and books I finished reading this week. Mini reviews and links to full reviews included! Feel free to join in and tell me your bookish weekend wrap-up in the comments 🙂
My Week in Books
- The True Reign Series by Jennifer Anna Davis
It took me a little while to get into the first book in this trilogy, but once I did I was hooked and I devoured the rest of the series in about 2 days.
- Third Daughter (The Royals of Dhara #1) by Susan Kaye Quinn
I picked this up because it was free in one of this week’s BookBub emails. It’s an interesting premise – third daughter thinks she can marry who she wants, until events intervene and she may be forced to marry to save her kingdom – and a unique, alternate East Asia setting. I’m looking forward to reading this.
- White Rose Black Forest by Eoin Dempsey
This book is my selection from Amazon’s February First Reads. I’m a sucker for a World War II historical fiction story, so this was an easy pick.
- One of Us Is Lying by Karen M. McManus
I have been looking forward to reading this murder mystery for a long time, and omg it was so worth the wait. So many twists and turns, and it really will keep you guessing until the big reveal. Full review here.
- Paws for a Kiss by Stephanie Rowe
I downloaded this book mainly because it was free in a BookBub email this week. But really… a romance about a girl who runs an animal shelter with a cute puppy on the cover? SOLD. The romance was a little bit insta-love for me, but all in all it was a cute, lighthearted read and I’m glad I downloaded it.
- The Whole Thing Together by Ann Brashares
I’ve loved Ann Brashares since The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, so when I saw this eBook available from my library I downloaded it right away. This was a poignant, sad, but ultimately hopeful story about a broken family trying to figure out how to fit together. Be warned, this book will probably make you cry, but it’s a really good read.
- A Goose Girl by K. M. Shea
I was so excited to find this fairy tale series, written as interconnected standalones by multiple authors. The first book is by one of my favorite fairy tale retelling authors, and I’m looking forward to reading it.
I’m currently reading Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows. I found it while browsing my library on OverDrive, and the premise hooked me right away. I’m on a fantasy kick lately so I was excited to jump into this book. It’s off to a weird start so far, and it’s a little hard to get into because the timeline jumps around a lot. But it is an interesting story so I’m sticking with it to see where it goes.
