Weekly wrap up #17 ;) april 16th - april 22nd

Well hello there my awesome people in my newest #WeeklyWrapUp post where I talk all about the books I read this past week :) there were a few surprises last week, and not all of them pleasant, so let's dive right into all the details... since I still haven't finished the only book I was in the middle of at the beginning of the week, we will start with the books I read entirely and then I will share the ones I am still in the middle of :)

"The sexy one" by Lauren Blakely
from 1% to 100% -> 270 pages, finished

This was the first book I finished this past week :) I listened to the audiobook version and absolutely loved it :) it was pretty short so I just flew through it :) the narrators were phenomenal and the story itself absolutely stole my heart, so I highly recommend you this gem :) it's loosely connected to Lauren's other books, but works perfectly well as a standalone, so no excuses, go pick it up ;)

"Love at last" by Claudia Connor
from 1% to 100% -> 408 pages; finished

This eARC definitely took me a while longer than I anticipated, but it's only because I was quite busy during the week ;) this was an absolutely lovely contemporary romance, and if you want to know more, be sure to come back tomorrow, when I will have a full review up on my blog :)

"The hero within" by Bec McMaster
from 1% to 100% -> 420 pages; finished

I inhaled this eARC over the weekend :) it was definitely one of my most highly anticipated books of the first half of the year :) action packed conclusion to a dystopian-ish series with some serious "Mad Max fury road" vibes... count me in ;) long story short: 5 stars :) for more details check out my full review tomorrow on my blog, don't worry it will have a totally spoiler free parts for all of you who are completely new to this :)

"#Nerd" by Cambria Hebert
from 1% to 45% -> 210 pages; DNFed

Once I finished my first audiobook so fast, I decided to pick another one... I chose "#Nerd" because it was available for free in mu Audible Romance Package and I kept hearing people talking about it... I also heard some mixed opinions about this one... unfortunately, I had to give up listening to it about half way through the book... you can find more of my thoughts and why I decided to stop reading in my Goodreads review right here -> READ ME <- it just wasn't my cup of tea... 

"The son of Neptune" by Rick Riordan
from page 61 to page 152

This is the one book I still haven't finished... I thought I would be done with it by now, but I got sidetracked by other stories and... the rest is history :) I really do love it, but it's been going slowly for me, since I have yet another set of completely new characters, a brand new place as well, and it takes me a while to get into everything :) but I enjoy every minute of it :)

"Wolfsong" by T. J. Klune
from 1% to 7% -> 30 pages

I am a huge fan of T. J. Klune's Tales from Verania series, so I decided to give another one of his stories a try... :) originally I wanted to start a different audiobook, but this one kept coming back to my mind, so I just started it... who am I to argue with myself? ;) and oh what a great decision this was... I am only at the beginning, but I am already soooo much in love with this story... I can just tell, that it will hit me in all the feels... I can't wait ;)

Total page count of the week: 

I've had a pretty good reading week ;) even though it's been a while since I DNFed a book, I really enjoyed everything else I read :) and consideraing I was pretty busy... I know, I know, what else is new? ;) I inhaled quite a lot of pages ;) I think I'm most happy about the fact that I am still absolutely in love with audiobooks... the more I listen to them, the more I enjoy this type of reading... and the longer my list of audiobooks to check out is ;) but I do have to say that my system of reading three books at the same time: one paperback, one ebook and one audiobook, is really working for me :) I always have different choices for different moods and hopefully it will bring some order into my chaotic life... ;) one can only hope :) and what have you been reading lately?
