Things I’ve read this month (so far). Some I started reading back in December, some I read this month, some I’m still working on. These are hardbacks, paperbacks, ebooks, audiobooks, magazines. Because I ain’t got no type.
First things first….WINTER OF THE WITCH, by Katherin Arden. I’ve been waiting for this book since I finished the second one. Much like the first two books in this trilogy, I ate this one up over the course of a whole two days. It was a solid end to the series—not perfect, it was actually my least favorite of the three—but it still finished things in a satisfactory way.
I completed Lemon Meringue Pie Murder and Sugar Cookie Murder, both by Joanne Fluke. I have such a guilty pleasure for cozy mysteries that center around a theme. I do have some quibbles about the main character in this series, but overall, they’re nice, light reads for times I don’t want to think too hard.
The last thing I finished was the first volume of the Takane & Hana manga. It was pleasant. I didn’t mind reading it, but I don’t know if it grabbed my attention enough to keep reading the series.
Currently working on: 1. The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller. I LOVED Circe by this author; it was one of my favorite books of 2018. This isn’t surprising because I love mythology. I’m not deep enough into this book to say if I’ll love it just as much, but one can hope. 2. NOS4A2, by Joe Hill, which is excellent so far. 3. Disappearance at Devil’s Rock, by Paul Tremblay. This is atmospheric and creepy. 4. Books Can Be Deceiving, by Jenn McKinlay. I’m also poking through the newest issues of Bookmarks and Saveur magazines.
That’s it for this month!
