A Bit Of My Week In Reading

The Athena Protocol cover imageI’m currently reading and really enjoying The Athena Protocol by Shamim Sarif which is about an elite group of vigilante justice spies with the “never kill” rule when one does just that. I love you all and don’t take this the wrong way but it’s so good I rather be reading it right now than writing about it. Did I say that out loud?

I just got my hands on a galley for Goldie Vance: The Hotel Whodunit by Lilliam Rivera, which is the upcoming middle grade series inspired by the Goldie Vance comics. And Ottessa Moshfegh’s suspense Death In Her Hands–I don’t want to know anything about it yet I just want to inhale it.
