I‘m enjoying this one. Definitely not something I would have found if I didn‘t need “a non-violent true crime” for the read harder book challenge

Olympus Bound | Jordanna Max Brodsky
post image

Book 3 in this trilogy. Artemis/Selene survives the attempt on her life and is hunting down the Mithrithan cult that attacked her family and kidnapped Zeus. Theo, thinking she‘s dead, is trying to find the cult through his research. This is a satisfying thick book and I can‘t wait to sink into it.

Definitely Bridget Jones in the White House. Entertaining and she got my nerves by the end but an interesting view from the sidelines.

Emergency Contact | Mary H. K. Choi

Labelled as YA, it‘s more new adult since the two MC‘s are in college. Slow burn romance as each of them are dealing with their own troubles and issues and they become friends first. And though I had to ask my niece what some of the acronyms meant, I enjoyed this quick read.

Borrowed this one from a friend and what a hoot! Especially since while researching the book, he brought his family along with him - his wife and his 10yr old & 4yr old sons!

The City of the Lost | Kelley Armstrong

Love this new series by Armstrong because it is set in a town in the middle of the #wilderness
People here are either trying to recover from crimes committed against them or escape from the crimes they have committed.

My library haul from yesterday. Though I‘m still deep in my Lackberg mystery series.

Buried Angels | Camilla Lckberg

And my series reading of Lackberg continues. She definitely has a formula and children are always involved (trigger warning) but I can‘t seem to stop. I like the glimpses into the detectives lives outside of the case.

Lcsmcat I‘m listening to Ice Princess on my commute and thought it was a stand alone. Where does it fall in the series? 2y
Moonpa @Lcsmcat it‘s the first one! You‘re good! 2y

A book of genre fiction in translation

This one is in the middle of the series but still enjoyable especially if you like more information on the personal lives of the detectives along with the mystery.

Andrew65 I need to get back to this series. Really enjoyed the first two. 2y
Moonpa @Andrew65 there‘s definitely a formula to them but it‘s comforting. And this book ended with some serious happenings so I had to pick up the next one!!! 2y

I like when the author performs their own book - Fisher is wonderful to listen to and I liked that her daughter read the actual diary excerpts.

When Breath Becomes Air | Paul Kalanithi

#readharder2018 - a book published posthumously

This book lives up to the hype. A well written examination of Kalanithi‘s journey from his search for understanding death in his literature and medical studies to his own experiences with a fatal diagnosis. It‘s about not giving up on life even when you are facing death. Very well done.

Cathythoughts I loved this one too ✨✨✨ 2y
