Currently Reading

I’m currently in the middle of five books and I wanted to share a bit of my thoughts on these.

Emma in the Night by Wendy Walker. I’m listening to this one on my commute and it’s the story of two sisters who disappeared one day, one has come back three years later but what happened to them and is her sister still alive? Lots of crazy family dynamics in this one and a psychologist who may also be carrying some baggage as well. Interesting but I wish there was more action.

The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde. I am not very far into this one but it’s a hoot. Mary Mary and Jack Spratt work the Nursery Crimes Division and they’ll be tasked with finding out who pushed Humpty Dumpty off the wall.

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, adapted by Renee Nault. I have read this Atwood classic twice and it’s one of my all time favorites and when I saw the graphic novel version at the library I couldn’t resist. The illustrations are beautiful and so far I think it captures the novel very well.

The Carrying by Ada Limon. I didn’t feel a strong connection to this poetry collection at first but there have been a couple of poems that have really moved me. I’m half way through this and I feel like the best is yet to come.

After She’s Gone by Camilla Grebe. I read her book, The Ice Beneath Her, and really enjoyed the twists and turns so I was looking forward to this one but this one seems to be lacking that tension of the first book.

So those are my current reads. I will probably finish a couple of these soon so I’m already looking forward to what I’ll pick up next. Would love to hear if you’ve read any of these and what you thought.

I hope you have a great weekend and let me know if you are starting/finishing any books this weekend.
