It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? 1/13/20

This week I’m going to finish up Dracula, read a book by an author that I love, and hopefully get to an arc that was sent to me by the publisher.

The Wicked Deep- Shea Ernshaw

35297394. sx318 Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow…

Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town.

Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under.

Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into.

Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the salty, rain-soaked streets. The townspeople turn against one another. Penny and Bo suspect each other of hiding secrets. And death comes swiftly to those who cannot resist the call of the sisters.

But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.

Most Likely- Sarah Watson

46803605From the creator of the hit TV series The Bold Type comes an empowering and heartfelt novel about a future female president’s senior year of high school.

Ava, CJ, Jordan, and Martha (listed in alphabetical order out of fairness) have been friends since kindergarten. Now they’re in their senior year, facing their biggest fears about growing up and growing apart. But there’s more than just college on the horizon. One of these girls is destined to become the president of the United States. The mystery, of course, is which girl gets the gig.

Is it Ava, the picture-perfect artist who’s secretly struggling to figure out where she belongs? Or could it be CJ, the one who’s got everything figured out…except how to fix her terrible SAT scores? Maybe it’s Jordan, the group’s resident journalist, who knows she’s ready for more than their small Ohio suburb can offer. And don’t overlook Martha, who will have to overcome all the obstacles that stand in the way of her dreams.

This is the story of four best friends who have one another’s backs through every new love, breakup, stumble, and success–proving that great friendships can help young women achieve anything…even a seat in the Oval Office.

WWW Wednesdays: It’s All Fantasy to Me

Hello, lovely book peeps! I can’t believe it’s already April; this year has flown by so fast! There have been so many amazing Young Adult books released, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year holds in the book world!

WWWEvery Wednesday, we participate in a blog post known as ‘WWW Wednesdays.’ This was originally hosted by MizB at A Daily Rhythm before moving to Taking on a World of Words. 

You may be wondering what the three Ws stand for. The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?


What am I currently reading?

Have you ever loved a book so much that you don’t want it to end? That’s how I currently am with Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young. I have about 100 pages left and I love the world, the characters, the writing so much that I don’t want it to come to a close. If you do not have this book on your radar, it needs to be!

I’m not as far in Riven as I am Sky in the Deep, but I am pretty close. And, boy, this is a beautifully intricate book! The characters act real (which I love) and the fantasy aspect is different from anything I have read. I can’t wait to share my review of Riven by Jane Alvey Harris next week!


What did I recently finish reading?

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw is a beautifully stunning read, with memorable characters and plot twists. My review will be posted very soon, so keep a look out! I recommend adding The Wicked Deep to your TBR pile!

What intrigued me the most about Ash Princess by Laura Sebastian was the gorgeous cover. From there, I wanted to read that book, not even knowing what the plot was about. I finished Ash Princess in a timely fashion, but I will say I was not as hooked to the story as I was the cover. The plot was wonderful and I loved Theo, but there were some parts of the story that caused the story to not be as memorable as I would have liked. My review will be posted soon! Overall, though, it was not a bad fantasy book!


What do I think I’ll read next?

This question is simple for me. I have a blog schedule I follow, so I know what books to read next and when to post reviews.

Secret Keeper by Jane Alvey Harris is the second book in the My Myth Trilogy (Riven being the first book). I can’t wait to continue to follow Emily’s journey and see what happens next!

I have been impatiently waiting to read Onyx & Ivory by Mindee Arnett for a couple months now. I’m luckily part of the amazing Onyx & Ivory street team, so I have been gearing up to read this book for quite a while now.


As you have probably pieced together, all the above books are fantasy reads. Fantasy is my go-to genre, so it’s never a surprise to me when my reading pile is all fantasy.

What book(s) are you currently reading? What book(s) are you excited to read next?
