Weekly Reads: July 26th


The end of July has arrived and I’m struggling to wrap up all the books I’m currently reading before the month is out. So what have I been up to?

d058c804-a08b-46ef-a9f5-d853205e0df4I haven’t had a ton of time to read a physical book, so ONE LITTLE SECRET, which I also have a digital copy of from Netgalley has been getting a ton of attention from me! I started this one a few days ago and plan to finish it tonight. I loved Cate Holahan’s previous release, LIES SHE TOLD. This story is completely different, but no less lovely! If I had to sum this one up, I would say it’s a locked room mystery/thriller with all of the interconnected family drama you love in books like BIG LITTLE LIES.

Since my reading time has been a bit limited, I’ve also been getting a ton of time with my audiobook selection, HUNTING CHARLES MANSON. Most of my knowledge about Manson has come from TV or movies, so I was thrilled to be offered this book for review. While I’m enjoying it and learning a lot, there is something about the layout that bothers me. The story is a bit disjointed in the timeline and I was envisioning something more linear.

I finally managed to start THE PUPPET SHOW! I’m less than 100 pages in and desperately wishing for some reading time. Since our weekend doesn’t have a ton planned out I’m hoping that wish comes true!

My last book I want to squeeze in before the month is out is THE COLORADO KID by Stephen King. How amazing is that cover?! Titan Books just released the new illustrated edition and I had to have it!
