This weekly meme is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words and all you need to do to participate is answer the following three questions.
What are you currently reading?
I’m at the end of The Battle of the Labyrinth and so far it is my least favorite of the series. I’m not a huge fan of the romance subplot and I really didn’t care for the part on the island. I also think that I might not like the ending since I’m expecting something huge to happen but I have my fingers crossed that it won’t be as bad as I think it will be.
The Ten Thousand Doors of January is a book I’m reading with my bookclub. I’m halfway through and will be finishing it this weekend. The writing is beautiful but I feel pretty indifferent to it right now. The last half of this book is either going to blow me away or it will be an average young adult story.
This month is The Final Book Support Group so I’m been trying to focus on sequels. I have a spinner wheel on my phone and it picked Well Played for me. It has an interesting premise that I both like and dislike. Our hero, Daniel (who is pretending to be his cousin Dex) and heroine, Stacey, spend the majority of the first half of the book communicating only through text and email. But since they see each other every summer the time jumps have been jarring since we are speeding through an entire year. It’s also annoying that this book came out on in 2020 but it is always such a big deal when Stacey is on her phone. I’m looking forward to Stacey finally realizing who she is talking to and how that all plays out.
What have you recently finished?
I enjoyed Fatal Frost more than the first book in the Dewberry Farm series. I didn’t realize that this series is based around holidays and I’m not sure if I will wait to read the next one until Halloween time. They aren’t very heavy with holiday content but I always enjoy reading cozy mystery holiday themed books around their specific holiday. The mystery in Fatal Frost was compelling and I enjoyed the cult like church subplot that played heavily into the murder investigation.
I really enjoyed Booth and thought it was a very intriguing historical fiction book based on the family of John Wilkes Booth. It is very character heavy and a tad overwritten but still an enjoyable read.
I picked up Closely Harbored Secrets for Buzzwordathon and thought it was a fun cozy mystery. This month has been a struggle between my health and life being hectic but I do plan on trying to catch up with blog stuff today. One of my big to do’s is writing a review for this book since it is a Netgalley book that I have been sitting on for a couple of years.
I picked up The Secret Keeper since I have a blog tour review of the third book in this trilogy next week. I loved the first book in this series, The Henna Artist, and I loved this one more. It follows the same characters twelve years after the events of the first book and is mostly centered around the building and partial collapse of the Royal Cinema. I flew through this book and I’m even more glad that I have access to the third book. I will be picking it up after I finish the book I’m about to share below.
What do you think you’ll read next?
The next spot I landed on for Romanceopoly was Outer Space which is a Sci Fi. And so I chose the most talked about Sci Fi romance ever, Ice Planet Barbarians.
You’d think being abducted by aliens would be the worst thing that could happen to me. And you’d be wrong. Because now, the aliens are having ship trouble, and they’ve left their cargo of human women—including me—on an ice planet.
And the only native inhabitant I’ve met? He’s big, horned, blue, and really, really has a thing for me…

Well Played is definitely my least favorite of the Well Met series. It’s got some cute moments, but it’s a tough premise to pull off, I think.
