Currently reading Recursion (hooked!!) and so excited I got to meet Blake Crouch a couple of weekends ago. I didn‘t have my copy of Recursion yet, so he signed Dark Matter for me.
I loved this. It‘s more than Punjabi Widows writing Erotic Stories. It‘s about the immigrant experience, empowering women, duty and choice. I adored the relationships between women of different generations. I laughed out loud more times than I can count! I teared up. And some mystery thrown in as well. Pretty much all the feels.
How could I not buy this beautiful copy of Lonesome Dove in the library‘s used book sale shelves?! This book is amazing. I‘ve never been one for Westerns, but this book has my heart. I read it on my kindle several years ago, and have so badly wanted a nice hardback of it! Meant to be.
Car pick up line reading! I enjoyed Bird Box and this one is grabbing me so far. Carol “dies” repeatedly but it‘s actually a coma (no breathing, no heartbeat) and she comes back to life after a couple of days. Gold digging husband decides to pretend she‘s really died and bury her alive to be rid of her and get her money. OOOOHHHHH.
I happened to make some bread to go with our Italian wedding soup tonight. And I‘m between books. So of course I need to read Sourdough next! 🥖
I finished it, because it was a quick read and I wanted to see how it ended. But I didn‘t like Jazz as a character and I think Andy Weir doesn‘t know how to write a female protagonist/narrator. It was so annoying.
Okay, I lied! I‘ll get to Artemis later. Decided to dive in for a re-read of Middlesex. I last read this in 2003, 5-starred it, count it among my top ten favorite books. Then my book club friend selected it for this month‘s book and I realized I don‘t remember all that much about it! Still loving it, 200 pages in. #reread
My fourth Colgan read, and definitely my least favorite. I didn‘t dislike it enough to abandon it, but I really didn‘t care which of the love interests she wound up with at the end. I can usually fly through a Colgan book, but this one was more of a drag.
I‘m so torn. Certain elements had me turning the pages, but I never felt like enough of my questions were answered! I‘m still not sure what happened. And I honestly don‘t think I‘ll continue with the series. But I still want to see the movie? Maybe that will be more exciting than these 195 pages.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4.5. I adore these Veronica Speedwell mysteries. I couldn‘t read it fast enough, but didn‘t want it to end! I have a massive crush on Stoker! I can‘t wait for book 4.

Super cute and a quick read. I still only give it 3⭐️ though. Maybe that makes it more of a so-so? I‘m still glad I read it!
This is my (second) book club's selection and the library only carried it in audiobook format. My second audiobook, and I'm still not sold on the format, but I'm open to trying them more often. This made me wish for a physical copy, because it speaks SO MANY TRUTHS about the love of reading. So many passages to underline and highlight. Beautiful novella. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️#audiobook #novella
