Happy Wednesday, book friends and happy snow day! Because of the snow storm, I ended up not having to go into work today. If you’re also caught up in the snow storm, I hope you’re safe and warm. If you have to be out, be careful on the icy roads!
WWW Wednesday is a popular weekly meme that is currently being hosted by Taking On A World of Words.
The Three Ws are:
What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?
→ 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne
→ Somewhere Only We Know by Maurene Goo, *Advanced Reader’s Copy
My co-worker who is also a fan of k-pop (a bigger fan than I am now) shared her ARC with me, saying she thought it was pretty cute. I was a little hesitant to pick it up because I was not a big fan of Goo’s previous book, I Believe in A Thing Called Love. But I really appreciate that she incorporate Korean pop culture into her stories.

This series totally got me hooked back into my romance audiobooks. The first book has the ultimate meet-cute for any of you literary nerds who hope to meet their soulmate at a book store. Each one of these stories is hilarious and I really appreciated the brevity of Kingsley’s storytelling, which prevented these stories from dragging and kept them fun and sexy. I’m also very appreciative of the fact that each audiobook had different male/female narrators. I just discovered there’s another installment which follows the romance between the daughter of the Hot Single Dad and her childhood best friend (Her Best Friend) and I can’t wait to read it.
