Hi y’all! I hope everyone is staying safe and getting in some extra reading time.


BOOKS READ

Deep State by Chris Hauty
An exciting political thriller. I received this ebook for free from Simon & Schuster a few weeks ago.

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi
I started the Shatter Me series last week. Hoping to finish it in the next few weeks.


CURRENTLY READING

He Started It by Samantha Downing
I’m reading an eARC of this book. I should have a review posted one day next week.

Foe by Iain Reid
I received this ebook for free from Simon & Schuster a couple of weeks ago. It sounded interesting, so I picked it as my freebie read.

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
I had this book on my shelf, and it fits in with a reading challenge.

Doctor Sleep by Stephen King
I borrowed the audio book on OverDrive. I liked The Shining, so I was curious about this sequel.

Hey there! I hope everyone is staying safe and enjoying their books. I read and listened to more books this week than I had planned. So, I’m making a lot of headway on my TBR.


BOOKS READ

The Year of Less by Cait Flanders
I listened to the audio version on OverDrive. I enjoy reading about minimalism, so this one sounded interesting. It’s about one woman’s journey on simplifying her life by implementing a shopping ban and reducing her number of belongings.

The Surgeon by Tess Gerittsen
This is the first book in the Rizzoli & Isles series. I’ve read one book in this series, and wanted to go back and start at the beginning. This is a book that has been on my shelf for a few years, so I was happy to check this one off the list. I have other books in this series, and I’m planning to read them soon.

Ford County by John Grisham
I listened to the audio version on OverDrive. This was a collection of short stories. I like Grisham’s legal thrillers, but hadn’t read any short stories by him.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
Another one that’s been on my bookshelf. I read this one for a reading challenge.

Rosemary’s Baby by Ira Levin
This book has been on my TBR for a long time. I picked it up on impulse, and finally got it read.

Can You See Her? by S.E. Lynes
This was an ARC from Netgalley. I’ll post a review next week.

The Girl Beneath the Sea by Andrew Mayne
My Amazon First Reads pick for April. This is the first book in a new series about a police diver in Florida. I like Mayne’s The Naturalist series, so I was curious about his latest book. It was a good one, and I’ll be on the lookout for the next book.

Breakfast of Champions by Kurt Vonnegut
This is another book I own that fit in with a reading challenge.


CURRENTLY READING

Proof of Murder by Lauren Elliott
The latest book in a cozy mystery series that I like. This is an ARC from Netgalley. I’ll post a review next week.

White Oleander by Janet Fitch
I bought this one ages ago. It fits in with a reading challenge, so I’m finally getting it checked off my TBR.

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
I bought this series last year. I’m planning to get it read over the next month.

Hey y’all! I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. I ventured out to get groceries this week, but otherwise, I’ve been staying home. With all this time at home, it does look like I’ll fit in a few more books than planned this month.


BOOKS READ

A Bad Day for Sunshine by Darynda Jones
This is the first book in a new series. The main character is Sunshine, a female sheriff in a small town. I’ve liked the few books I’ve read in Darynda Jones’s Charley Davidson series, so I was excited to see she had a new mystery series. This was a great read. I posted my review earlier this week.

Not That Kind of Guy by Andie J. Christopher
This sounded like a light, cute book. I wasn’t impressed with Andie J. Christopher’s Not the Girl You Marry, but I thought I’d give another of her books a chance. This one was better. I plan to post my review next week.

Specials by Scott Westerfeld
I mentioned this series last week. I own the books, and am working through the series this month.


CURRENTLY READING

Little Secrets by Jennifer Hillier
I liked Jennifer Hillier’s Jar of Hearts, so I was happy to receive an ARC of her newest book. I’ll post a review after I finish reading it.

Audrey Hepburn by Barry Paris
I bought this book a couple of years ago, but never read it. I’ve always like Audrey Hepburn, so I’m enjoying learning more about her life.

Extras by Scott Westerfeld
This is the last book in this series. I hope to finish it this weekend.

The Stolen Letter by Paige Shelton
This book is the 5th book in the Scottish Bookshop Mystery series. I’ve read the previous four books in this cozy mystery series, so I was happy to receive an eARC of the new book. This book is expected to be published next week, and I plan to have a review posted on Monday.

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
I own this series, and these books have been sitting on my shelf, unread, for years. I love YA dystopian novels, so I decided to finally pick up this series to read.


CURRENTLY READING

The Love Story of Missy Carmichael by Beth Morrey

Hey y’all! I hope everyone is staying safe.

Like everyone else, we’ve been adjusting to our new stay-at-home schedules. Fortunately, my husband was able to switch to working from home fairly easily. I’m a stay-at-home mom, so my schedule didn’t change too much. My son is in Kindergarten, so he’s doing distance learning. His assignments aren’t hard to keep up with, but he’s ready to go back to school and see his friends.

As for books, I’m not reading as much as I would like. Hopefully, I can get back into a reading routine soon. I did host Random House Book Club’s March discussion on Goodreads last night. The book was The Two Lives of Lydia Bird by Josie Silver. I haven’t posted my review yet, but hope to have it on the blog next week.
