BOOKS LISTENED TO

I borrowed three audiobooks from the library via OverDrive – Waistcoats & Weaponry, Manners & Mutiny, and The Life We Bury. I’m trying to catch up on series that I started and never completed… Now I’ve finished the Finishing School series. A review of an Allen Eskens book on Two Sisters Lost in a Coulee got me curious to try a book by him, so I’m starting with The Life We Bury.

NETGALLEY & EDELWEISS eARCs RECEIVED

This week I got two ARCs – The Escape Room and The Suspect. The blurb for The Escape Room sounded good, so I got it on Netgalley. The Suspect was available on Edelweiss, and I wanted to read it since I enjoyed Fiona Barton’s other books.

PURCHASED

No books purchased this week.

BORROWED

I borrowed three books from the library this week – All the Beautiful Strangers, Guess Who, and Lying in Wait. I had all of these on hold, so, of course, they all came in at the same time.

  1. Great post Darinda! Thank you for the love with mentioning and linking us! I am so glad you listened to The Life You Bury and enjoyed it.

    I am looking forward to The Suspect too. I have All The Beautiful Strangers on my unread EW shelve. I am looking forward to seeing your thoughts. If you ever want to join in on a read in our groups please let me know!

    Happy Reading!

    1. Thanks for a great recommendation! I plan on reading more by Allen Eskens, who I wasn’t familiar with until reading your blog post.

      I see where your group reads a lot of the same books as I do, so one of these days I may want to join in on a read. My reading style is pretty chaotic, so I tend to not commit to group reads.

  2. Some good choices her Darinda. I just ordered the audio version of The Life We Bury from the library. Lying in Wait also looks very interesting. Happy Reading.
