One book I added is Tricks by Ed McBain. This is the 40th entry in his long running 87th Precinct series. I think I may have read another at some point. All action takes place during one evening, Halloween night, and the police officers in the 87th Precinct are getting called out to solve a missing persons case, liquor store robberies and several other incidents. Lots of action going on here and lots of characters to keep track of that it is almost like watching a police procedural on t.v. This is a read for my mystery book group so I need to finish this one soon.
The Opposite House by Helen Oyeyemi is a book I picked up for the More Diverse Reading project. Unfortunately I didn’t finish this one in time but I still plan on continuing with this novel. It is not the most easiest to read as there is a very dreamlike quality to this story but I am enjoying it.
My other books are still No One Gets Out Alive by Adam Nevill. This has been creepy and violent. Hope to finish it soon. I’m also still making progress in The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald and I’m still holding on to Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver, because I’m very close to the end and determined to finish that book.
I’m actually not sure how much reading I’ll get done this weekend though because it’s the Texas Book Festival! I can’t wait. Also, don’t forget that Dewey’s Read-A-Thon is happening this weekend. Talk about a bookish weekend. Whatever you are up to, I hope you all have a great weekend!
