  • The Big Inch (Misfits and Millionaires, #1) by Kimberly Fish – physical book

I’m currently speeding through this beauty. It’s a self published historical fiction novel written by a local author that’s set in my hometown. Can we talk about just how awesome all of those things are?! I wasn’t really sure how this book was going to be when I first bought it but once I picked it up, I haven’t been able to put it down. It’s got mystery, political intrigue, and forbidden romance, all revolving real events that occurred here during WWII. I’m so excited to see how this one ends!

What did you recently finish reading?

  • Space Opera by Catherynne M. Valente – physical book, 3/5 stars, REVIEW
  • The Shade Hour (The Girl at Midnight, #2) by Melissa Grey – physical book, 3/5 stars

I had an alright reading week, just not really special. I was a little disappointed by Space Opera as it didn’t focus as much on the actual singing competition as I was hoping that it would. If you enjoyed kooky books like Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, then you might enjoy this one more than I did.

The Shadow Hour was decent, if a little slower than the first book was. I do like how it ended though and the cliffhanger has me feeling that the finale will be much better than this one was. Overall this has been a decent series but nothing truly unique or amazing.

What do you think you’ll read next?

  • The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid
  • Gathering Darkness (Falling Kingdoms, #3) by Morgan Rhodes
  • Cress (The Lunar Chronicles, #3) by Marissa Meyer

These are a few books that I’ve really been meaning to get to lately. I might go with Cress next since I read Scarlet back in the fall and I don’t want to keep pushing it off until I can’t remember anything that happened. (Which is very likely knowing me.) However, I’m really in the mood for historical fiction at the moment so who really knows what I’ll end up actually picking up next. I’m such a mood reader, I swear!


What are you currently reading? What do you plan on reading next? Did you finish any books this past week? If so, what did you think of them? Leave a link to your WWW Wednesday in the comments below!

  1. Oh I really hope you enjoy Cress, that’s actually my favourite in The Lunar Chronicles series so I’ll be interested in seeing what you think of that one, also yeah probably a good idea to pick it up before you forget what happened in Scarlet. 🙂 Also I’m glad you enjoyed The Shadow Hour, but I get what you mean about the series not being exceptional, it’s good but missing that spark in a way.
    Great post, and happy reading! 😀

    1. Yes, it seems to be everyone’s favorite from The Lunar Chronicles which makes me really excited to pick it up. I just want more of Wolfe really, haha! I’m really hoping that the final book in The Girl at Midnight ends up bringing some wow factor to the series but I don’t think that’ll happen, unfortunately.

  2. I’ve been recently seeing people talk about Space Opera. It seems pretty interesting. I do love the cover. Also you must read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. One of my favorite reads of the year. It’s great.
