Two weeks later I am back with WLW Wednesday meme.
WLW Wednesday is a bookish meme created by Sasha and Amber @ Sasha and Amber Read meant to highlight WLW books you’ve read in the past week.
Harrow the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir, 4,5 stars
I liked Gideon’s POV better — she’s wayy funnier than Harrow — but being in Harrow’s mind felt amazingly disturbing. It was even more mysteriuos, complex, and harrowing than the first book. And much much gayer. 👌
The Care and Feeding of Waspish Widows by Olivia Waite, 4,5 stars
Remember the printer lady from the last book? From Griffins? Well, guess whose husband sadly died and who, by chance, just met a hot beekeeper lesbian and is overcome by lust?
This book in the series is a slower burn than the previous one so naturally we get more pinning 😎 which I liked! We also had wayy more queer characters than just the main couple! Queer people flock together! YAY! And, of course, I loved the bees. It’s my brand so I must mention it. There were bees and they were super important to the plot. Yeah. Now that I got that out of my system — I feel like this book wanted to cover many things at once and it mostly pulled it off but it still lowkey felt all over the place? I loved the thing but things could fit together a bit more smoothly.
Seeing Red by Cara Malone, 3 stars
I’m too much of a commie to fully enjoy this (rich/poor romance with the rich posing as the good guys and the poor as the problematic ones) but it was cute and I liked the grandma. My granny has dementia as well (more developed at this point) so I could relate to the struggle of losing someone little by little.
Cinders by Cara Malone, 3 stars
Ok, I’m still ‘f*ck the rich’ team and there were cops there but this really pulled me in? It was cute and both of the MCs harbored childhood crushes on each other and now I lowkey want a hot butch firefighter girlfriend. Or a type A personality gardening femme gf. Both were hot and cute. The plot was predictable and I guessed the bad guy right away but who cares? Not me.
