A Bit Of My Week In Reading
Super excited to have gotten an ARC for the revenge thriller Beijing Payback by Daniel Nieh (Ecco, July 23.)
I currently can’t put down Watcher in the Woods by Kelley Armstrong which is a crime novel in a remote area in the Canadian Yukon that basically is a safe haven for victims and also criminals–I know!
My nonviolent true crime obsession continues with Black Edge by Sheelah Kohatkar. And my everyone-stranded-in-one-place-and-uh-oh-someone-is-a-killer obsession is being fed with No Exit by Taylor Adams and The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley.
My break from mystery is Meaty by Samantha Irby, on audio, and I just adore her, her humor, and her no-fcks-given-says-what-she’s-thinking essays.
