I recently found out that in the realm of blogging there is a such thing as WWW Wednesday which is currently being hosted by Taking on a World of Words with author Sam A. Stevens. I definitely suggest checking her page out if you are interested in all things currently being read and written. She takes requests for reviews of books you are thinking of reading or have read and want to talk about. I found out about this marvelous exercise from one of the bloggers that I have been reading recently for his poetry. It wouldn’t be right of me to not mention him for his incredible voice and advocacy for the LGBTQIA+ community. If you want to check his work out visit his blog and Wednesday post by clicking here MyBookWorld24. Speaking of talking about books let’s get into what I mean when I say “WWW” Wednesdays!
The three Ws stand for three questions regarding your weekly reading habits and patterns. I will review my thoughts and give the Goodreads synopsis as a link in the tiles for those of you who are interested in reading the listed books. The questions are as follows: What are you currently reading? // What did you recently finish reading? // What do you think you’ll read next? So without further ado, let’s get into it!
I am currently reading King of Wrath by Ana Huang. It is a new release for the author as it was first published on October 20th, 2022. It is an arranged marriage romance novel with multicultural themes. The main characters are relatable if you are rich and living in New York Society. But, honestly, who doesn’t love a good Gossip Girls moment. I am at the beginning of this book but was promised heavy spice factors I have yet to see. So far it has been relatively predictable and quoted. I found this book while scrolling through Instagram reels so I guessed the algorithm just really wanted me to read it. That being said, the story follows 28 yo, Vivian Lau, as she navigates her family’s plan for her marriage and personal life. As well as angry at absolutely everything, Dante Russo is being blackmailed into a corner. The two resemble an enemies-to-lovers arch while also introducing a love triangle in the form of Heath, the ex-boyfriend.
I don’t want to pass judgment too quickly so I will say so far so good, I’ll leave a review on my Goodreads after I have finished it. If you want to know more about this book click the title above to read the synopsis or grab it from your favorite book spot.
The last book that I read was The Emotion Code by Dr. Bradley Nelson! I originally picked it up in order to achieve a Kindle Achievement for reading within a specific category of recommended books. Once I was about two chapters in I realized that it was going to be a life-changing experience to read what was between the covers of this book.
“Dr. Bradley Nelson, D.C. (ret.) is the developer of the most advanced form of energy medicine on the planet. A holistic Chiropractor and Medical Intuitive, Dr. Nelson is one of the world’s foremost experts in the emerging fields of Bioenergetic Medicine and Energy Psychology.”
The Emotion Code: How to Release Your Trapped Emotions for Abundant Health, Love, and Happiness is Dr. Nelson’s most popular work. It details the steps, processes, and explanations for the reasons and releases involving energy in the human body. While there are some farfetched ideologies if you have not experienced conversation surrounding energy being stored in the body, Dr. Nelson also acknowledges that the greatest healer to ever live is Jesus Christ.
I recently spent the day with my sister catching up and pursuing our local bookstore. I sent her this book for her birthday because it had been on the Amazon Best Seller list for a few weeks and I recognized the author from my reading list the year prior. While we were at 2nd and Charles we searched high and low and picked up armfuls of books on the way but couldn’t find a copy. Right as we were about to leave, I saw It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover, hidden between other recently published books, and brought it home. I want to see what all the hype is about as many people (my hair stylist, co-worker, and the lady working the front desk at my auto repair shop) have recommended it to me.
From what I can tell the book is about a small-town woman, Lily, who is starting a new relationship post-college and career. She has become the exception to Ryle’s no-dating rule and wants to know why he has the rule in the first place. Her past haunts her in the form of her ex, Atlas, who shows up in town threatening the life she is building and prompting questions in her head she doesn’t want to face.
I think it will be a good read but I am hoping it’s great!
