Show Us Your Books May 2020

Hey hi hello. Continuing the light quaranreading months up in this piece. I'm picking up books and putting them down so quickly that I haven't even been tracking any do not finish books that I don't get more than 30 pages in. I'll probably go back to most of them at some point, because I'm operating from an it's not you, it's me place. I've also been forgetting to update Goodreads and have to rely on my camera or bookshelf to show me what I've read LOL. 

How have you been? 

Here's what I've been reading since the last linkup.

Engrossing Reads

Truths I Never Told You by Kelly Rimmer - The writing was good. The story was sad as hell speckled with joy. It t was a quick read and kept my attention which is not an easy feat in quarantine times. Netgalley read in exchange for an honest review       

Find Her Alive (Detective Josie Quinn #8) by Lisa Regan - When in doubt, series it out is something I stand by in Corona Land and out. Loved this latest installment of the Josie Quinn series and I hope Lisa Regan churns another out soon. I love following her and her dog on Instagram LOL. If you like these kinds of books and haven't dived in to Josie, what are you doing? E-book, own 

The Night Swim by Megan Goldin - This broke my heart a lot, especially the flashbacks. I liked the premise of the present, which reminded me a tiny bit of Sadie. Solid read. I'd pre-order either to purchase or from a library. Free copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, book comes out August 4. 

Passed the Time Just Fine

The Safe Place by Anna Downes - I didn't see a big piece of this coming, and thought many things along the way, which is good. A bunch of this could be cut out, but overall a quick read that had some pizzazz. Netgalley read in exchange for an honest review, book comes out July 14

Open Book by Jessica Simpson - I liked this more than I thought I would. She's not the idiot she's been molded into in the media (not without her knowing). I liked the tea in regards to John Mayer and Nick Lachey as well, I mean that's why I read it in the first place, but came out liking her a lot more than I went in. E-book, own

Conjure Women - I was drawn in by the cover art and super pumped to read this. I think the experience would have been different outside of quarantine. This was a slow build and I don't have  a lot of patience for a slow build right now, even if the writing and characters can sustain it. Hardcover, own 

Deeper Than the Dead (Oak Knoll #1) by Tami Hoag - Crime shit set in the mid-80s and 90s always feels like The Wire to me. Part of the fun is all the stuff we're used to now having been schooled on CSI and Kay Scarpetta, etc., that they didn't have then. This was a easy read. Paperback, own

Parable of the Talents (Earthseed #2) by Octavia E. Butler - I liked this better than the first, but the post apocalyptic nature is still not the right time to read these books for me personally. If you like Dystopian novels, check the Earthseed books out. Paperback, own 

Not Worth It

Did Not Finish
