This weekly meme is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. All you need to do to participate is answer the following three questions:
What are you currently reading?
I started this last night before bed and I’m already half way through. The way this book is told is so intriguing and I just need to know what is going to happen next. Depending on how the ending goes this might be my favorite thriller of the year. I don’t want to give too much away because I’m really enjoying not knowing anything about this story. But I will say the vibes of this book are Verity by Colleen Hoover meets the movie Ready or Not.
What have you recently finished?
Unfortunately, I have spent most of this month sick with a terrible flu so my reading has been almost non existent until a couple of days ago. Before I got sick I finished The Atlas Six and loved it just as much the second time around as I did the first.
I was part way through A Second Chance Road Trip for Christmas when I got sick so I finished it up as soon as I was feeling more human. I enjoyed it (four stars) but I liked the first one in this series more. However, it put me in the mood to read all the holiday things.
I next picked up The Christmas Bell and it’s prequel since I thought a horror was a nice contrast to the romance I had just finished. Both were ok reads. The story was interesting but the execution was a bit messy. The Christmas Bell is only 160 pages but the middle definitely dragged and it was repetitive. The prequel at only 25 pages was also a bit repetitive. I gave both three stars.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I preordered this and it comes out tomorrow. The books in this series are such quick and enjoyable reads even if they don’t have a lot of holiday in them.
t’s Christmas in the Holiday Mansion and Juniper has this years party gift-wrapped and under the tree!
Christmas at the Holiday mansion is always a festive affair. The residents of Crescent Cove look forward to Juniper’s yard decorations almost as much as an invitation to one of her parties—and this year everyone has been invited. What could possibly go wrong with a mansion full of people and non-humans?
Murder of the ho-ho-ho variety, that’s what. Santa’s not so jolly anymore and Juniper can’t help but be suspicious of Mrs. Claus. Detective Mallard is convinced one of the elves is responsible. Victoria thinks it was an accident. Nobody can be sure, however, because there was no witness—not even the ghosts saw what happened.
Juniper is determined to discover the murderer before Christmas Day, which doesn’t give her much time. Will she manage, or will Santa’s murderer go free to sleigh again?
