Death Notice cover imageLooking for a cat-and-mouse thriller? Death Notice by Zhou Haohui, Zac Haluza (Translation) is $4.99 and super good. (Review) (TW suicide/ rape)

For a fun locked-room mystery that is also equal parts “chick lit” I’ll Eat When I’m Dead by Barbara Bourland is $1.99! (Review) (I don’t have notes on TW for this one so it may not have any or I wasn’t keeping notes then–sorry!)

A Bit Of My Week In Reading

Book stack on pool edge

Have I mentioned my only goal this summer is as much pool reading as possible? (Beijing Payback by Daniel Nieh; Never Have I Ever by Joshilyn Jackson; Lady in the Lake by Laura Lippman) And of course I’m flipping between print and audiobook on those three.

When I Am Through With You cover imageAlso on audio: I just finished, and really liked, When I Am Through with You by Stephanie Kuehn. Starting Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead by Olga Tokarczuk, Antonia Lloyd-Jones (Translation), because I am OBSESSED with the title. And my current nonfic is Hunting LeRoux: The Inside Story of the DEA Takedown of a Criminal Genius and His Empire by Elaine Shannon.
