Two books may seem like a lot but I really finished the Fiona Barton novel late Sunday night, which means it took me all week to read the David Abrams. I did work on my cross-stitch project a lot this week, so I guess I can say I took solace in crafting rather than reading.
FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:
I was a huge fan of Fiona Barton’s first novel, but I think her second novel is even better. For those who weren’t impressed with her debut, I hope you give her a second chance.
The David Abrams was a heavy read but so, so good.
Aaaahhhh! I want to read Wicked Bugs (and Wicked Plants!). It’s hitting me now that I bet it’s super duper on audio.
Actually, it’s not that great. There are no chapter breaks, and the narrator does not do a great job of distinguishing the different sections. It took me a long time to catch them. It feels like one big laundry list of various types of bugs somewhat categorized by type. I think that is why it is taking me so long to finish it.
I wasn’t impressed with her debut, but I’m willing to try her again if you enjoyed it!
I’m so curious about Little Fires…I hope you like it!
Brandie, I do think you would enjoy Barton’s latest novel. I don’t know what did not impress you with her debut, but her second novel is a much better novel IMO.
I keep hearing really good things about The Child! And I loved Little Fires Everywhere!
The Child was SO good. I will be starting Little Fires Everywhere today, so I’m excited. Although Adam Silvera’s latest novel is just…whoa. It is going to be a hard act to follow.
I’m reading The Darkest Lies by Barbara Copperthwaite, it’s a psychological thriller about a 13 yo who’s gone missing. Can’t wait until night time to ingest it fully!!
