What are you currently reading?
I’m only a few chapters into The Red House Mystery and I am really enjoying it. A.A. Milne is known as the author of the Winnie the Pooh stories and he wrote this mystery story for his dad who was a lover of detective novels. The Red House Mystery is a locked room mystery so we all know that I am going to love it. It also is giving me strong Agatha Christie, Hercule Poirot in particular, vibes. I’m very interested to see if this book has a spectacular ending like every Agatha Christie novel I have read.
Such a Quiet Place is one of my most anticipated reads of the year so when I was approved for an ARC I couldn’t help but start reading almost right away. This book doesn’t come out until July 13 but I can already tell you that it is going to one of the big summer blockbuster releases. I’m around 20% through this one and I am utterly captivated. Ruby has just been released from prison following a presumable wrongful conviction and she ends up going back to the community where she is alleged to have murdered two of her neighbors. The whole story is fraught with unease and suspense and as we peel back the layers of the story it has me on the edge of my seat. I could easily have flown through this story by now but I find myself wanting to savor it. I really hope that it keeps building up to an amazing ending.
I did some diamond painting yesterday and so I started the audiobook of Punching the Air. This is a young adult story told in verse about a 16 year old is wrongly convicted of a crime he didn’t commit and he gets sent to prison. I believe this story is mainly about how he got there and what life is like for him in prison. I’ve only listened to about half an hour but the writing is equally breathtaking and heartbreaking.
What have you recently finished reading?
The Mysterious Howling by Maryrose Wood was a really fun start of a middle grade series. I thought it was a mystery but it really just sets up a mystery that I’m assuming covers multiple books in the series. I will hopefully have a review up for this one sometime this month. I gave it 5 stars.
The Dark Light of Day and Dark Needs are both prequel books in T.M. Frazier’s King series. I read King back in December 2019 and I really loved it but never continued on with the series. I’m now doing a full read of the series so I’m working my way through the whole 10 book series. These are very graphic dark romances that deal with a lot of hard topics so please be aware of that if you think you want to give them a try. I gave The Dark Light of Day three stars and Dark Needs four stars. I think I will wait until I finish all books in the series and then do a review of all of them like I did with Tillie Cole’s Hades Hangmen series.
What do you think you’ll read next?
This is the next book I need to read for my read through of the King series. I gave this one five stars the first time I read it so I’m interested to see what I think of it this time. I have been reading a lot more lately because I haven’t been able to do as much stitching because of my arms so there is a chance that I might finish this one before the 48 hr Bookopolathon that is happening this weekend. (I will have a post up tomorrow of what I’m planning to start for Bookopoly since we only have the first two roll drops.) But if I do manage to finish all the things before Friday afternoon I think I will either pick up The Whisper Network or Things That Burn from my Spring into Readingathon TBR.
