Welcome to Friday Reads and Reviews!
What am I doing this weekend? Let’s see. First, checking in on family. My brother lives in northern California so we had been keeping a watchful eye on him and my sister in law with the fires. With hurricanes, fires and the like my extended family has made it a group project to have emergency go bags stocked and ready. My mom and brothers completed theirs, we are pulling the rear but should be completed by early next week. Our congregation had a meeting pre- pandemic about every family having one. They showed an example and went over what should be in it. I still have that list and have been adding and personalizing. I’m glad we are all doing it.
We are headed to the shore during off hours to catch some socially distanced sun in these last days of summer. This summer flew by!!!
Report: Gin rummy was a success! I want a rematch.
I am currently reading:
I am half way through and enjoying it. Kimberley Freeman is now a go to author for me. If I like three or more of your books, I just need to see your name to click “add to cart”.
This past week I read:
I loved the writing in this book. I genuinely did. Rachel Rhys has a nice turn of phrase. The plot line, however, was outrageous. The plot twists were so far out there, I just could not move this book past a 2/5 stars. Recommend for the writing, facepalm for the plot.
What will I be reading next?
I have books on their way to me that I am excited about! Book haul post coming soon! I am reading at a good pace lately and liking what I read. I think I’ve found my current niche. With that in mind I am going to finish:
and then start:
I binge read this author’s first book. I still remember starting it at the library, coming home reading through dinner and finishing late that night. That so rarely happens, I want to see if this book is just as captivating. This is a Netgalley ebook, but I am so tempted to buy a copy. I wonder if others do that? We will see.
I mentioned this to Murder by Death – I am toying with the idea of starting the British library classics and working my way through them. I want physical copies but they run 83 deep and I don’t have room so I may be forced to do ebooks. Hmmmm…
I love those covers… I am also a little jealous of Martin Edwards editing these. I can’t shake the feeling that he has my dream job…
What are your weekend/reading plans?
