Show Us Your Books November 2020

When I started this post I thought I only read three books in the past month. It's more, but not many more. This year has tested me for sure. Miraculously since a non-trump president was named, I am reading much better than before. Still have that Covid brain, but the fascist crisis is gone. Hallelujah and amen and let us begin with the books. 

Housekeeping: The standard December SUYB is Tuesday, December 8; and the SUYB Favorite Reads of the Year post is Tuesday, 12/29. 

Here's what I've been reading since the last linkup. 
For those of you trying to expand your authors into Black or POC and not being aware of many outside of the nonfiction we're here to talk about race books, I'm going to note that in my origin of book going forward. 

Engrossing Reads

Blacktop Wasteland by S.A. Cosby - My friend Mush recommended this and it did not disappoint. Tight writing and I really liked the main character, Bug. Hard cover, own, Black author purchased from Black-owned bookstore Harriett's via Bookshop - willing to pass on and cover postage, let me know if you're interested

Save Her Soul (Detective Josie Quinn #9) by Lisa Regan - Another solid entry in the Josie Quinn lexicon. Gretchen Palmer is one of my favorite characters and she's in this one a lot. Kindle, own

The Coveted Girls (Suburban Murder #3) by Alexa Steele - I totally forgot this series existed and how much I enjoyed it until Dani mentioned it in last month's linkup. I really liked this one too and I hope there are more. Kindle, own

Goodnight Beautiful by Aimee Molloy - What a strange book this is. I picked it up after the Biden win announcement and read it like old me would have. OCNJ library hardcover

Passed the Time Just Fine

Confessions on the 7:45 by Lisa Unger - I read this book for 11 fucking days. 11 days. I started Sunday, 10/25, and finished 11/5. I blame the election. The book was fine. 2019 me would have read it in two days. OCNJ library

Killman Creek (Stillhouse Lake #2) by Rachel Caine - I have had this on my kindle for an eternity. Like, since the first one came out. I finally read it only because I got the fourth as an ARC from Netgalley and shit must be read in order. This violated one of my main rules, which is child narrator (it switched off but this child in particular was grating) but I flew through it and that has happened like five times this year. Kindle, own

Not Worth It

Did Not Finish
