What I read last week:
I only managed to finish one book last week because I was being wishy-washy about what I wanted to read next. I wound up starting and stopping several books last week. *headdesk*
The Glass Forest by Cynthia Swanson
A historical mystery, The Glass Forest covers the time period between World War II and 1960. The historical aspect was fascinating for me and I loved the alternating points of view, especially Sija’s which is the only one that travels into the past to give her full history. My issue with the book is that it had this amazing slow build up of tension and secrets but, once the secrets were revealed, they were kind of meh. A full review will hopefully be coming soon.
What I’m currently reading:
Because of my above-mentioned wishy-washyness, I have several I started this past week.
Saddle Up by A M Arthur
I started reading this and had to set it aside. I like the couple this book is centered on already, but Miles’ friend, Wes, is making me nutty. If Wes can chill out with the inappropriate sexual comments, I might be okay. Haha.
When the Lights Go Out by Mary Kubica
I won an ARC of this via Goodreads and finally got a chance to start reading it Saturday.
Dates From Hell by Kim Harrison, Lyndsay Sands, Kelley Armstrong, & Lori Handeland
I found this ‘clean up your TBR’ challenge somewhere so I thought I’d start with the first year I began adding books as ‘to read’ on Goodreads: 2007. Thankfully, I only have two books on the list for that year, this anthology being one of them.
Lincoln’s Last Trial: The Murder Case that Propelled Him to the Presidency by Dan Abrams and David Fisher
Borrowed this from the library right when it was released and didn’t get through it before it had to go back. I hope to finish it this time around.
What I’m reading next (hopefully):
Dodging and Burning by John Copenhaven
Coffin Road by Peter May
Asking for Truffle by Dorothy St. James
One of these my ‘up next’ books might actually be ‘up next’!
