Sorry I’m late. I’ve been jumping between books, both physical and ebook, with mixed progress. A friend loaned me a collection of stories, Flash Casey…Detective which I finished and will be my Friday Forgotten post this week.
Next was One Fell Soup by Roy Blount Jr. because I wanted some humor. That’s what I got, some – but not a lot – of humor. I also started a science fiction ebook from the library, Jay Allan’s Shadow of Empire which is the first book in The Far Stars Trilogy. I’m not smitten and will probably let the borrow run out without finishing it.
Lastly, I’m currently reading In the Labyrinth of Drakes the fourth Memoir by Lady Trent, written by Marie Brennan. The 5th and last of the series, In the Sanctuary of Wings was published last month, and I’d fallen a book behind on this series detailing the experiences and exploits of Lady Trent, Draconoligist. A delightful character and series. I have the new book lined up to read directly after.
Barbara finished I Found You by Lisa Jewell, which she enjoyed. The plot seemed predictable well into the book then had a twist which made it much more interesting. She says she will try others by the author. She’s now reading Kill Devil Falls by Brian Klingborg. Here’s the blurb:
“When U.S. Marshal Helen Morrissey is tasked with collecting a fugitive bank robber from a remote town in the Sierra Nevadas, she braces for a rough trip. After all, with a name like Kill Devil Falls, her destination must be a real hellhole. Turns out it’s worse than she imagined. Much worse.”
So how about you?
What have you been reading?
