How To Read Mariana Zapata’s Books | Publication Order vs Chronological Order | Updated 2022

Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to my blog! Today I’m going through how to read Mariana Zapata’s books. Mariana Zapata is one of my favourite authors of all time and definitely my favourite romance author. her books can all be read as standalone but a lot of the later ones included cameos with other characters so today I’m writing up a quick summary of which books are connected and how you should read them.

Honestly, I started with The Wall of Winnipeg and Me and then went from there and I think it’s fine to just pick and choose whatever most interests you and then go on from there. The cameos rarely impact the plot in any major way and you can treat all of MZ’s books as standalones, but if you want to read in either publication or chronological (from what I can guess) order, that’s what I’m going through today!

If you’re looking for a quick graphic to save to your phone I highly recommend this one I found on Pinterest.

i read the entire kingdom of the wicked trilogy in 12 hours lol i’m unhinged

Hey everyone, welcome to or welcome back to my blog! I’m in the mood for some romance today and I have the day off from work so I’ve decided to take advantage of my reading motivation! It’s 11am and since today is the only day this week that I’m not busy so I’m dedicating the entire day to reading the Kingdom of the Wicked trilogy by Kerry Mainsalco. The last book in the trilogy came out in late September and I’ve been waiting for a free day to binge the trilogy and today is finally that day!

I have read book 1 before but I haven’t read the other books so I’m excited to see where this trilogy goes, especially since I don’t really remember what happens in book 1!

A Review of The Off-Campus Series by Elle Kennedy [The Deal, The Mistake, The Score, The Goal + The Legacy]

Hey everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog. I run a book blog and yet you will rarely see properly formatted reviews on my blog… That being said, I’m switching it up today and going old-school! I’m posting a full series review of the Off-Campus series by Elle Kennedy!

The books:

  • The Deal
  • The Mistake
  • The Score
  • The Goal
  • The Legacy

I’ve read book 1 in this series a few times now because I’ve so often gone into this series with the intention of binge-reading all the books, only to completely fail and only read the first one 😅. But, I can finally say that I’ve successfully read the entire series now and I’ll be reviewing it today!

Also, kind of random, but I made a Pinterest board for The Deal (book one!) and you can find it here.

*There will be some spoilers in these reviews!*
