WWW Wednesday – 1/16/19

WWW is a weekly meme 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?


Is it me? I am having the hardest time finding a good book this year! The ARC’s I’ve read have all been underwhelming, and even a book I grabbed on KU was eh. It could be me. I started Broadway Beans by Karen Cimms and was not getting into it and realized it has 75 chapters!!!!!!! It’s not a James Patterson novel! I hope the next ARC I start is better than what I’ve been reading. Last January started off awesome, so I’m a little bummed:(


What I’m Currently Reading

Nothing. I stopped reading Broadway Beans on the train and finished the Sebastian Maniscalco comedy show on Netflix (which I highly recommend.

 


What I Recently Finished

Accidental Romeo by Nicole Snow. I liked the book but it was SO long. SOOOOO long.

Hold Me Today by Maria Luis. Another decent book that was exceedingly long and detail heavy.

What I Plan to Read Next

I’m really praying one of these ARC’s gets me back on track, reading wise.

Build (Burns Brothers, #1) Hollywood Playboy LASS


What is on your list this week?

Happy reading.

Goodreads Summary

A perfect stranger just kissed away the worst day of my life.
Emphasis on perfect.
Hunter Forsythe is so far out of my league I can’t even buy tickets.
And now he’s insta-date to my stuck up sister’s wedding?!

Brace for everything to go hilariously wrong.
But my mysterious new hero is no flipping joke.
Rich as sin. Knockout eyes. A snarlypants single dad. Muscle, muscle everywhere.
Too good for the quiet baker girl no one ever noticed.

Then I find out what – and who – put him up to this insanity.
I’m so mad I could spit nails.
Imagine my surprise when Romeo keeps coming.
Hear my door slamming in his face.
Witness my jaw hanging when he starts wooing me for real.

Dream dates, family dinners, and soul-branding nights.
I’m in full Juliet mode before I see the crack in his world.
The longing. The loss. The secrets. The danger.
Does love even fit in Hunter’s jagged heart?
Or is a Shakespearean tragedy in our stars?

Cover Reveals/Blitzes

Release Blitz ~ Game On by Kelly Jamieson

Game On by Kelly Jamieson is AVAILABLE NOW!

When the stakes are this high, it’s game on. . . .

“Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips

Cam Brickley and his pro hockey teammates bet on everything: who can win five faceoffs in a row, who can do forty pushups in less than a minute, who can eat a ghost pepper without puking. But when his buddies bet him he can’t date the same woman—like, say, the hot blonde over at the bar—for two months and not fall in love, he’ll take that bet all day. Then he’ll laugh all the way to the hockey arena, where they’ll be washing his jock straps for the rest of the season, because Cam’s never giving up his bachelor lifestyle.

Olivia Lockwood, heiress to the Lockwood Industries fortune, is used to people using her for her money and family connections. When Cam Brickley hits on her in a club, Olivia’s first instinct is to brush him off. But he couldn’t be using her for her money, since he has more than enough of his own. Cam’s gorgeous and built, and it would be no hardship to go out with him . . . besides, he’d be the perfect spokesperson for the children’s charity she works with. Maybe it’s time for her to start using people.

Cam and Olivia are both in it for something. What they don’t know yet is that they’re playing for keeps.

Penny Hofstader is the worst part of the Big Bang Theory (now), IMO

When the TBBT started 12 years ago, Penny was a sweet, young, naive girl from Nebraska with the big dream of being a star in Hollywood.

Leonard, her neighbor and eventual love interest, pined over her for years. Watching the show over (and over, and over), I now see that Penny always had feelings for Leonard, but just didn’t admit to them.

For the first 8 seasons, I loved Penny. She was a girl chasing a dream. Now, I can’t stand her. She’s a mean spirited witch, especially to her long-suffering husband, Leonard.

Why do I no longer like Penny? Hmmm, where do I start? She is SO rude to Leonard. All the time. She puts him down, makes fun of his small stature, him in bed, you name it. Not to him most of the time, but she’s always putting him down to Amy and Bernadette.

When she got the job as a Pharmaceutical Rep, she wasted no time throwing in Leonard’s face that she made more money than him, when in reality, show owes him thousands of dollars from loans he’d given her in the past (he also bought her a car!!!). That is one thing that drives me insane about her character. It’s like she (ok, the writers) forgot the first seven years when Penny was broke and Leonard constantly paid for her food, even when they weren’t dating.

My biggest issue with her now, and sorry, this may be a spoiler if you’re not caught up, is she doesn’t want to have kids. That is so unfair to Leonard. She knows damn well that Leonard does and has always wanted kids with Penny. In the first episode of the series, she says how smart and beautiful their children would be. The fact that Penny just sprung this on Leonard makes her even more unlikable.

Leonard and Penny, as characters on the show, have really stalled out as a couple. They aren’t doing anything really. Amy and Sheldon have written a paper, Howard and Bernie have two kids, and Raj is looking for love. Penny and Leonard have done nothing for two seasons now, and quite frankly, their storyline is BORING.

I have a feeling that Peonard will end up with kids, but I’m just not loving this whole storyline. Or Penny.

Just my two cents.

The Masked Singer is ridiculous; but I can’t stop watching!

I saw the previews of the Masked Singer on Fox (and there were MANY) and I thought “this show looks so dumb”. While that may be true, it’s so much fun to watch!!

For the past two weeks, “masked” singers have come out to perform, and the judges have to guess who they are. The judges are Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong and Nicole Scherzinger.

The costumes these performers are in are amazingly elaborate. I can’t imagine hanging out in a costume like that for an hour.  It’s quite hilarious. There are some professional singers for sure; and some not. What’s fun is trying to figure out who the people are based on the “clues” and their performance. I know who the Raven is for sure. I have guesses about others.

What makes the show so funny are the insane guesses the judges make. Lady Gaga? President Obama? Really??? Think C or D list celebrities for sure!!!

If you haven’t checked out this show, do so. It’s very entertaining. I’ll include a video below to show you:)
