Thank goodness for the readathon. Had I not found those few hours to participate, I doubt I would have finished one book this week, let alone three!
FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:
Deon Meyer’s novel is a gorgeous story about survival and community and the ills of society. The 500+ pages flew past as I was totally immersed in the story. It is so well-written and so realistic, every time I paused in my reading I had to stop and remind myself that it wasn’t real. This is a book I want to put on everyone’s radar.
The Ali Land book was creepy and intense and wonderful for those reasons. The child of a female serial killer who turns her own mother into the authorities? Yes, please!
The second in the Frost Blood series was just as good as I hoped it would be. The only problem is now I have to wait for the third book!
DID NOT FINISH:
I love when this category is empty.
I am thoroughly enjoying Uncle Stevie’s homage to women. It is definitely not what I expected. The horror is of the reality kind – the kind women face every day – and I have yet to decide if this makes it scarier or less scary in the long run.
So, what are you reading?
I’m so glad you got to join and get so much reading done!!
Me too! 😉
I got Sleeping Beauties free from BOTM last month and figured I may not ever read it b/c I’m not a fan of his horror. But, maybe I’ll give it a shot at some point.
It definitely is not horror, IMO. More like his 11/22/63 with something supernatural going on but the humans provide the horror through their actions and words. I have four-and-a-half hours left in the audiobook and have no idea how it is going to end.
