 I’m on vacation this week. I have no idea how much I will read, but I have high hopes! Especially since this past week’s reading was so abysmal.

FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:

A Boy in Winter by Rachel Seiffert End of Watch by Stephen King

Rachel Seiffert’s newest novel is a tough one. She does a great job showing different viewpoints of the Nazi occupation of Ukraine, even as it tears you apart. Definitely not a beach read but still a worthy addition to any reading list.


DID NOT FINISH:

 


CURRENT READ:

The Disappearances by Emily Bain Murphy


CURRENT LISTEN:

Fangs for the Memories by Molly Harper

After taking two months to listen to a 13-hour audiobook, I need something short and light. Molly Harper to the rescue!


NEXT UP:

The Unquiet Grave by Sharyn McCrumb Down Among the Sticks and Bones by Seanan McGuire


So, what are you reading?
