WLW Wednesday #4

Hi all!! Another #WLWWednesday post from us this week!! Some super exciting books are on here, we hope you enjoy! – Sasha and Amber ❤


Amber’s recent WLW reads:


Cute Mutants Vol 1: Mutant Pride

Cute Mutants Vol 1: Mutant Pride by SJ Whitby

(Young Adult Sci-Fi) Book 1 in a series

A hilarious and adorable novel about a group of teens who all mysteriously develop crazy mutant powers after a party one night. This book was sent to me by the author to review and I’m SO incredibly grateful because it’s a new favourite for me now!! All of the characters are so lovable and the humour in this book is top notch!! I’m very excited for the rest of this series.


Iron Heart (Crier's War, #2)

Iron Heart by Nina Varela

(Young Adult Fantasy) Book 2 in a duology

I reread Crier’s War before jumping straight into this one and honestly,,, WOW. I actually think I preferred book 2 to book 1 and I already miss these girls and this world so much. The ending and epilogue of this book were SO SOFT!!! pls more crierayla nina varela pls.


The Sullivan Sisters

The Sullivan Sisters by Kathryn Ormsbee

(Young Adult Mystery) Standalone

This book is about 3 sisters who drift apart as they get older and we now follow them as they discover that they have been left a house by an uncle they never knew existed. This book was a bit of a let down for me personally, it really fell flat and the ‘mystery’ part didn’t surprise me at all :((


The Mermaid, the Witch, and the Sea

The Mermaid, the Witch and the Sea by Maggie Tokuda-Hall

(Young Adult Fantasy) Book 1 in a duology

A desperate orphan turned pirate and a rebellious imperial daughter find a connection on the high seas in a world divided by colonialism and threaded with magic. This book was super fun, magic and gorgeous. The writing style was sooo pretty and I MISS MY GIRLS ALREADY!!! but what,,, what was that ending?!?!?!


The Space Between

The Space Between by Meg Grehan

(Young Adult Contemporary/Poetry) Standalone

I buddy read this one with Emily (@ashortbooklover) and we both absolutely loved it!! It’s a short novella written in verse that follows Beth who has agoraphobia and is feeling trapped and suffocated when she meets a girl and her dog. One thing I loved the most about this book was that Beth finding love didn’t immediately ‘fix’ her and her mental illness! It was a very short and gorgeous read ❤


Radio Silence

Radio Silence by Alice Oseman

(Young Adult Contemporary) Standalone

I re-read this book recently and picked it up on audio, IT WAS PHENOMENAL. Like, just as good as I’d remembered ❤ aaa these characters are all so cue and I missed them so much, so it was lovely to be back with them again.



Loveless by Alice Oseman

(Young Adult Contemporary) Standalone

Another of Alice Oseman’s book that I’m in love with, shocker. This book was witty, funny and heart-breaking all at once and SO eye opening to me as I’ve just recently come out as ace. I loved all the characters in this book and related to Georgia’s story a lot.


The Wrong McElroy

The Wrong McElroy by K.L. Hughes

(Adult Romance) Standalone

This book is about a lesbian who pretends to be her best friend’s girlfriend for him and visits his family,,,, and then she falls in love with his sister. This was a super short, fun and cute story and I loved the setting :))


Sasha’s Recent WLW reads:


So, I went back to school recently and have only read four books so far this month 😦 The good news is two of those were sapphic:


Lies Like Poison

Lies Like Poison by Chelsea Pitcher

(Young Adult Contemporary Thriller) Standalone

Lies Like Poison was a twisted contemporary fairytale with exciting twists and centring around the friendship between four kids who would do anything for each other. I enjoyed this thriller but my favourite aspect was OBVIOUSLY the f/f romance between two fierce and badass girls!


Crier's War (Crier's War, #1)

Crier’s War by Nina Varela

(Young Adult Fantasy) Book 1 in a duology

I also reread Criers War by Nina Varela in anticipation for Iron Heart, and once again I ADORED it! I think I enjoyed it a little more ironically than the first time as my taste has changed a bit but still god-tier yearning and a capturing plot! I love fantasy with elements of mystery like this one and I’d DIE for Crier and Ayla, two stupid and horny emotionally-closed-off girls.


thank you for reading!! as always, please feel free to join in on the tag/meme ❤

  1. ahhh i love iron heart as well!!! it didn’t feel like there was too much going on even though a lot happened. varela is very skilled at writing good pacing in her books and i am so excited for her middle grade book.i already miss crier and ayla and would love a third book or novella about the aftermath of IH or a short story collection about the side characters and history of the world.
