What a crazy, busy week but I’m excited the weekend is here. That means it’s getting closer to our vacation! In the meantime we’ll try to survive the Texas heat. I think this Saturday it’s supposed to cool down to 99 degrees. I think I need more Scandinavian fiction in my current reads to imagine cool days!
I actually did start a couple of new books this week even though I said I wanted to finish up some of my current reads but as much as I like my current reads, they are slow-moving. And, with me being so tired in the evenings I need some fiction that’s a bit more fast-paced. So I added two thrillers to my current reads.
Rage Against the Dying by Becky Masterman. From Publisher’s Weekly: Resist any temptation to bail after the creepy prologue—a sexual predator’s-eye-view of the woman he’s about to attack—because then you’ll miss one of the most memorable FBI agents since Clarice Starling as well as a killer debut thriller.
The 9th Girl by Tami Hoag. From the publisher’s blurb: Kovac had seen more dead bodies than he could count: Men, women, children; victims of shootings, stabbings, strangulations, beatings; fresh corpses and bodies that had been left for days in the trunks of cars in the dead of summer. But he had never seen anything quite like this . . .
I’ll keep you posted on how these go but so far both have started off with some thrilling introductions!
And, before I close this did you see the 50 Sci-fi/Fantasy Novels that everyone should read? I’ve read a few, very few, but I saw some on here that sounded really good and I’ll have to keep in mind for the Once Upon a Time Challenge. Anyway, check it out and tell me what you think.
Alright friends, have a wonderful weekend. My goal is to stay out of the heat as much as possible and read lots!
