So I have a lot to read this week! I have three days off this week so I’m happy I get a chance to read some books!
I hope I get a chance to read a lot but we shall see what I really do get done! I know this is a day late but whatever hahahaha I was actually a little busy yesterday and also I’ve been really sick so I took medicine and passed out at around 9:30 pm. I slept for like almost 12 hours I think it was great!
So currently I am still reading The Spring Girls…I know! I don’t know why it’s taking me so long but I plan on finishing it this week I swear! I won’t mention much else about it I hope! I plan to just finish it!
Another book I am currently working on is The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith. I got the audiobook from my library and I’m currently listening to that! I’m about 4 1/2 hours in and I have about 10 hours left! I hope to finish it this weekend so I can turn it back in! It’s really good! I’m really enjoying it! I placed a hold on the second book so once I get that one I’ll start that as well once I’m done with this one!
Summary: The Cuckoo’s Calling is a 2013 crime fiction novel by J. K. Rowling, published under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.
A brilliant mystery in a classic vein: Detective Cormoran Strike investigates a supermodel’s suicide.
After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office.
Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: His sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.
You may think you know detectives, but you’ve never met one quite like Strike. You may think you know about the wealthy and famous, but you’ve never seen them under an investigation like this.
I also want to read the Hazel Wood! I’m super excited to start it! I have an eARC from Netgalley so I plan on reading it and writing a review! It sounds so amazing so I hope I like it!
Summary: Seventeen-year-old Alice and her mother have spent most of Alice’s life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice’s grandmother, the reclusive author of a cult-classic book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get: her mother is stolen away―by a figure who claims to come from the Hinterland, the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother’s stories are set. Alice’s only lead is the message her mother left behind: “Stay away from the Hazel Wood.”
Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother’s cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with classmate Ellery Finch, a Hinterland superfan who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To retrieve her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood, then into the world where her grandmother’s tales began―and where she might find out how her own story went so wrong.
I also got an arc of Reign of the Fallen by Sarah Glen Marsh! I got it at Book Fest at Barnes and Nobles so I’m really excited to start it! This cover is stunning!
Summary: Odessa is one of Karthia’s master necromancers, catering to the kingdom’s ruling Dead. Whenever a noble dies, it’s Odessa’s job to raise them by retrieving their souls from a dreamy and dangerous shadow world called the Deadlands. But there is a cost to being raised–the Dead must remain shrouded, or risk transforming into zombie-like monsters known as Shades. If even a hint of flesh is exposed, the grotesque transformation will begin.
A dramatic uptick in Shade attacks raises suspicions and fears among Odessa’s necromancer community. Soon a crushing loss of one of their own reveals a disturbing conspiracy: someone is intentionally creating Shades by tearing shrouds from the Dead–and training them to attack. Odessa is faced with a terrifying question: What if her necromancer’s magic is the weapon that brings Karthia to its knees?
I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish another book but if I do I want to maybe start either Say You’ll Remember Me by Katie McGarry or Banished by Betsy Schow. Most likely Say You’ll Remember Me because I have a blog tour coming up for that so I want to make sure I’m prepared!
Let me know what you plan on reading this week as I would love to know and I’ll see you in my next post!
