It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? – 16 April 2018

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Button
Hosted by Kathryn from Book Date, this is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind. Here is what I read the week ending 16 April 2018. To learn more about each book, just click on the book cover!

I keep plugging away one page at a time. It is about all I can do these days.


The Broken Girls by Simone St. James The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen I Was Anastasia by Ariel Lawhon

The Simone St. James book is heartbreaking and spooky and intense. Actually, so was the Greer Hendricks/Sarah Pekkanen collaboration. Both books kept me reading far longer than I should have every night. Both books kept me guessing, and both books had some surprises that I did not see coming. Both books were also the type that made me wish I had more time every day to read. I would definitely recommend them both, especially if you like Gothic or domestic thrillers.

The newest novel by Ariel Lawhon is a fun one in that she does an excellent job of keeping you guessing. Her meticulous research makes this fascinating on so many levels.


Still holding strong.


The Balcony by Jane Delury 


A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle

Glimpse by Jonathan Maberry

April Review Copies:

I am so far behind, which I knew I would be but still don’t like. My only hope is that at least some of these are less than 200 pages.

    I can save you some time – skip How to Be Safe 🙂 I DNF’d and Susie at Novel Visits finished and wished she’d DNF’d.

    Also – I keep thinking I should go back and finish The Wife Between Us…I DNF’d it back in January…

      Good to know!

      I think you might be pleasantly surprised by The Wife Between Us. I don’t know at what point you DNF’d it, but it takes a path I was not expecting.

    I liked both The Broken Girls and The Wife Between Us and I have I Was Anastasia to read at some point. Also, several of your ‘April’ TBR. Hope you can squeeze some good reading in this week. 🙂

      Squeeze is the operative word. It’s about all I can do these days. Five minutes here, five minutes there. It counts though, right? 😉

    Looks like you’ve read some good ones lately! I have a copy of How to Be Safe and it looks short. I might try it soon.

      There have been good ones and not-so-good ones. One of these days I will find the time to write up the reviews for them!
