Weekly Reads: May 29th


I still exist!! Life has been crazy busy and blogging has taken a bit of a backseat over the last week. It was nice not to have any strict commitments and to read, but not worry about getting a review out immediately. That being said…I’m now facing a backlog of reviews!

35bcbb95-bd88-4fd0-8ab4-b82c3127e548In the past week I’ve wrapped up reading:

I KNOW WHO YOU ARE by Alice Feeney



Reviews for all of these are headed your way over the next few days, along with reviews for the two books I hope to finish out my May reading line-up!


img_1192What are those two other books? First up is THE MISSING SEASON by Gillian French. I don’t typically find myself reading much in the YA category, but this one had a local legend premise that I couldn’t resist. First impressions: I love how easy it is to get absorbed into this story and what to know more about the group of teenagers it surrounds.

GERALD’S GAME is my May King read-along selection and I’m still trying to find my footing in this one. I have a digital copy on my phone that I’ve been reading on the go when I can’t drag my physical copy with me. First impressions: I honestly have no idea what to think about this one. It’s not bad, but it’s not really grabbing me either. That being said, I’m less than 100 pages in, so I’m willing to give it more time.

Taking me into June will be my audiobook listen of THE STRANGER BESIDE ME by Ann Rule. This is my first book by Rule and after recently becoming fascinated by Ted Bundy yet again thanks to documentaries I knew this was the perfect time to pick her book up. The audiobook is a crazy 18 hours long, so be prepared for me to include this one in several of my weekly updates.
