WWW Wednesdays #105 – October 5th


WWW WEDNESDAYS is a weekly meme hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words and is all about answering the three questions below.



Basically, I’m still reading the same books from last week plus a new one. Oops?! I guess it shows I was away for the weekend… My main focus is The Bitter Side Of Sweet by Tara Sullivan, which is turning out to be a really interesting and fast-paced read. As soon as I have finished that one, I will continue with Ivy Feckett Is Looking For Love by Jay Spencer Green. I’m only a few pages into that one, so not much to tell so far. I also still need to finish Empire Of Storms by Sarah J. Maas. I’m enjoying it better than I thought I would, but the whole Aelin-Rowan romance is really starting to get on my nerves.



* The first book I finished is actually a cookbook that caught my eye at Netgalley: But My Family Would Never Eat Vegan! by Kristy Turner. Although I could never give up meat (or cheese!) completely, I always try to prepare vegetarian/vegan meals at least two or three times a week… And this cookbook is a little goldmine! The descriptions and introductions to the recipes are hilarious as well, and there is a lot of extra information ‘special’ ingredients and how to prepare them.
* The other title I managed to finish is Safe With Me by K.L. Slater. I’m having mixed thoughts about this one. When I first started reading it, I was sure I was going to give it the highest possible rating… But as the plot twists and unlikeable characters evolved, I started having second thoughts. Everything is almost too absurd (especially during the final part of the book) and it just didn’t seem believable at all. It didn’t help that I couldn’t connect to the main character either. The ending was supposed to be a mayor plot twist, but I kind of already saw part of it coming?



I’m waaay behind with my ARCs, and next up are two books I’m looking forward to: The Best Friend by Shalini Boland and Dark Water by Robert Bryndza. I’ve really enjoyed reading the work of both authors in the past, so I can’t wait to start reading these new titles! I also want to read The Coldest Girl In Coldtown by Holly Black to get into the Halloween mood, and A Court Of Mist And Fury by Sarah J. Maas is still my latest TBR jar pick (and will be for a while longer I’m afraid).

    • Most people seem to love Safe With Me, so most likely the problem was me and not the book. It was all a bit too farfetched to be credible for me… And I like reading different genres, but mystery/thriller is still my absolute favorite. 😉

    • I really should finish the books I started last week, but somehow I keep ending up trying to finish some Netgalley reads instead haha. I just finished The Bitter Side Of Sweet and now I’m trying to force myself to finish the other two first before starting something new. 😉


    • Don’t feel bad; I haven’t read any of her work either except for the short story in My True Love Gave To Me. A lot of people seem to enjoy her work so it seems about time I finally read it. 😉 Happy reading!

    • I’ve just finished The Bitter Side Of Sweet and it’s without doubt worth the read. It’s about two young brothers who are forced to work on a cacao plantation and very well written. 🙂


  1. I am hoping to read A Court of Mist and Fury and Empire of Storms next! I read The Coldest Girl in Coldtown for halloween last year and I liked it but I almost think it works better as a short story? Hopefully you will enjoy it!

    • I like how vegetarian/vegan recipes help add variety to what we eat, even though I could never give up meat and especially cheese completely. Happy reading and thanks for hosting!


  2. Sad too hear that Safe with Me isn’t all that. I have it on my TBR and had really high hopes. I I hope to read it before publication date though.I can’t wait to read Dark Water, I hope it will be a great read. I am so jealous that you got the new book by Shalini Boland. I can’t wait it anywhere. I hope that it will be a great read though. Enjoy all your books this week. Happy reading:-)

    • I was one of the few who didn’t love Safe With Me, so you will probably end up enjoying it better than I did. And I can’t wait to read Dark Water and The Best Friend! Happy reading and enjoy your books this week. 🙂


  3. I love the title of The Bitter Side Of Sweet, so interesting! I’m glad you’re enjoying 🙂 Haha, Maas goes so heavy on the romance, this is one of the reasons I like the series but I don’t love it. Sorry Safe With Me did not work for you. I will be reading it soon (hopefully…). I hate it when a plot is just to obvious and the big twists I expected turn out to be not so big and not so surprising. It takes the fun away.
    Happy reading!

    • The Bitter Side Of Sweet is such a great story! It’s about two young brothers who are forced to work at a cacao plantation; both very intriguing and sad at the same time. And I can definitely understand why you wouldn’t love Sarah J. Maas because of the romance; in a way I’m afraid to pick up ACOMAF because I’m almost sure the romance will spoil it for me. 😉 Happy reading!
