The Devotion of Suspect X: A Detective Galileo Novel (Detective Galileo Series Book 1) by Keigo Higashino, Alexander O. Smith (Translation)

One of my favorite mystery authors who puts together their mystery plots so well. This is the first in the series of translations (I think it’s the 3rd in the series in Japan–the order really doesn’t matter, I swear!) and it’s only $2.99!

A Bit Of My Week In Reading

While Justice Sleeps by Stacey Abrams

Not to galley brag or anything but I got my hands on Stacey Abrams upcoming legal thriller and I’m the most excited to dive into this over the weekend.

Currently I’m reading this year’s release in one of my all-time favorite historical mystery series: An Unexpected Peril (Veronica Speedwell, #6) by Deanna Raybourn. Raybourn never fails to make me laugh from the opening page and I forever thank her.

And in my ears right now is Quan Barry’s We Ride Upon Sticks, which I picked up because ’80s and Salem and it is absolutely a delightful, fun, unique ride.
