And A Bit of My Week In Reading
So as soon as I was finished lamenting how I’d never get through all the reading I needed to do, my library informed me four of my holds had come through: Far From You by Tess Sharpe; An Extraordinary Union by Alyssa Cole; Ghosted by Rosie Walsh; The Perplexing Theft of the Jewel in the Crown by Vaseem Khan.
On my ereader, I’m almost finished with The Truth Lies Here by Lindsey Klingele, which is a YA thriller/missing person’s with a touch of an X-Files/Stranger Things underlining feeling. And I started Idyll Hands by Stephanie Gayle (A good small town procedural so far), and Gravesend by William Boyle (Great crime novel so far).
