Weekly Wrap Up – Feb 6-12

2022 has been an interesting year so far… in some ways good, and some ways bad. But one thing is know is that I need to expect the unexpected this year… even when it comes to books. Something happened this week that has never happened to me before and I was a real struggle to make a decision. Let me explain…


The first book that I finished this week was BEACH READ by Emily Henry. I heard some mixed reviews about this one. One of the main reasons some people didn’t like this all came down to the fact that it wasn’t your typical “rom-com” and I would have to agree that it’s not. In my case though, I really enjoyed that it was a little different! It had some of the usual rom-com moments but it was far more deep and dark. Review coming this Friday.

The “unexpected” I mentioned earlier came when I started reading EXTASIA by Claire Legrand. I was so excited for this book! It had so many buzzwords that screamed at me to read it – cults, horror, witches, female/female, and so on. I requested this book specifically because I was so convinced I would love it…………… and I ended up DNF’ing it……. This book was not it for me and I’ll be doing a “review/thoughts” post in a few days to talk about it. Setting this book aside was a very difficult decision, especially since it was an ARC. I made it to page 249 before making the call, but I just couldn’t do it anymore.

Because my plans to read Extasia fell through, I decided to pick up THE EX HEX by Erin Sterling. I was still in the mood for something “witchy” so this was perfect! A few months ago this book was everywhere and I managed to resist and stay away from any spoilers. I really enjoyed certain aspects of this but it wasn’t as great as I thought it would be. Review coming next week


YYYYEEEEEESSSSSS! It’s time folks! Book two in the series is releasing on the 15th and, of course, I’ve got it preordered. Problem is….. I remember literally nothing about the first book! I have a few memories of the characters and some specific scenes, but there’s no way I could read the second one without being confused. I had completely forgotten how much I enjoyed this atmosphere/world and the main character! And, weirdly enough, I think I’m liking it better the second time around!


Also – happy Valentines Day tomorrow to all my fellow bookworms out there!!!

Until next time, happy reading!
