It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date, a great place to meet up and share your reading plans for the week. I love finding new blogs and new books – and a link-up that helps me do both? Sign me up!
Last week was a rough one – having a cold and going back to work is not a fun combination. On the bright side, taking one day on sick-leave gave me tons of extra reading time! I finally had no excuse not to finish Black Water by Louise Doughty – at 32 days in, it was getting ridiculous. Following a young spy on his travels to Indonesia, Black Water is not for the faint of heart as he recounts his escape from the massacres of 1965 and the subsequent military dictatorship.
Currently I’m reading In the House Upon the Dirt Between the Lake and the Woods – a dark fairy tale with modern-minded characters. Has anyone else read this? I’m still in the beginning stages, and not sure if I should go on – the story is dramatically uncomfortable, but the writing is beautiful. I’m really tempted to skip it to read The Ballroom by Anna Hope – I’ve been waiting months for a library copy!
In audio, I’m reading Ever the Hunted by Erin Summerill, a surprising find on Hoopla considering it just came out! Then it’s on to The Hostile Hospital – Book 8 in A Series of Unfortunate Events!! You know what I’ll be binging this weekend!!
