Weekly Reads: July 23rd


I feel like July is flying by! I’ve read so many good books this month. I definitely need to declare two of my reads from last week, BLOCK 46 and KIN, as new favorites that I will be recommending to everyone!

This week I’m planning to read…

img_8347In an effort to overdo it in typical Jess fashion, I have decided to read all four of these books by the month’s end. Am I crazy? Maybe, but two of these are also pretty short, so I think I can do it. Tonight I’ll be starting THIS BODY’S NOT BIG ENOUGH FOR BOTH OF US. Last year I loved MEDDLING KIDS by Cantero, so I’m excited to see what he’s come up with in his latest novel.

Next up will be SILENT CHILD, which is the July pick for Instagram’s Criminally Good Book Club. I had never heard of this book prior to the club selecting it and I’m pretty excited about trying a new author. With a Goodreads rating of 4.01, my expectations are pretty high!

Closing out the month will by PENPAL by Dathan Auerbach. I was lucky enough to snag an advanced copy of Auerbach’s upcoming novel, BAD MAN, and thought now would be the best time to read his previous book, which has been on my wishlist TBR for an eternity!

In an effort to carry on my Stephen King journey, I’ll also be reading DOLORES CLAIBORNE over the course of the week. So many constant readers have recommended this book and Shannon Kirk just added it to a must read list for gothic thrillers set by the sea. I’m really looking forward to picking up some of King’s older and lesser-known to me work.

Lastly, not pictured is my audiobook for the week, THE NATURE OF THE BEAST, which also made my list last week. I anticipated listening to more of it over the weekend, but actually ended up listening to I’LL BE GONE IN THE DARK instead.

Whew! I’m feeling slightly overwhelmed by my lofty goals, but at the same time it’s also raining all week in Maryland, so that should lead to more reading time. Wish me luck bookworms!

What are you reading this week? Have you read any of these titles?
