What are you currently reading?
I meant to have Where I Left Her finished yesterday but this week has been even busier than I was anticipating so I’m getting behind in blog related things. I am so close to being done with it though and I have been hooked on this book since the first chapter. It is a true thriller and after the last book that I read I am really enjoying the pace and constant reveal of information. I will finish this tonight but because we are going out of town tomorrow because my little one is getting another laser treatment on his birthmark I won’t be able to post my review until next week.
I still never got around to finishing Dark Notes and I think I’m 80% done. I plan on reading this in the waiting room Friday so I might finish it or at least come close enough that I can finish it over the weekend. Since I’m not that invested in this romance and it got to the final dramatic moments I kind of lost interest. This will probably be a two star read unless the ending blows me away.
I started reading Nine Perfect Strangers this weekend and I’ve made it to page 173. I’m hoping that I read far enough to cover all of episode 1 of the show which premiered on Hulu today. I think the first four episodes got released today and I definitely didn’t read far enough to cover all of them. But since we are going out of town for a few days maybe I will get some good progress in.
What have you recently finished?
I will have my review up next week for The Guilt Trip. This was a two star read for me and the writing and the narrator of the audiobook are the only reason I made it all the way through.
What do you think you’ll read next?
A page-turning novel of suspense about the perfect family, and the perfect lies, by the bestselling author of When I’m Gone and The Waiting Room.
Adopted by her controlling foster mother at the age of eight, twenty-year-old Tara has seen little of the outside world. Lonely, punished for the slightest offense, her only distraction comes from watching the Feely family’s online videos. They’re an affectionate vlogging quintet and an internet sensation. Most important, they are Tara’s mental refuge. Then the opportunity arises for them to be something more. When Tara accepts an internship with the close-knit clan, they’re her escape.
Daring to run away, and defying Mother’s rules, Tara is welcomed into the loving fold. But the more Tara gets to know them, the more she realizes that not everything is as it seems. As secrets slowly surface, the image of the perfect family begins to crack. For Tara, it’s another trap.
To claim a life of her own, she’ll need a new escape plan. Because as the show’s popularity explodes, reaching even more fascinated viewers, Tara can’t shake the feeling that Mother is among their ranks. She’s watching. She’s waiting. She’ll never let her go.
