My Reading Week
I don’t know about you, but Daylight Savings Time is kicking my butt. It always takes a few days before I feel it, and then it hits me hard.
I just finished Tell No Lies by Allison Brennan, and I loved it. Brennan has a way of telling a tale that is twisty and action-packed without losing the human element and the coveted back stories. I don’t often see that in this sub-genre of mystery. I’ve been reading fast and furious again, so I only had two days to spend with this book but I wish I had more to really take in all the exquisite details contained between the covers.
I’m starting The House of Killers by Samantha Howe, today. The characters from other stories mentioned is really what sold me on this book. I love Jason Bourne and James Bond, so a female version of those characters is very intriguing to me. I should have started it by the time you read this, so I will no more about how I like it as the day goes on.
Next, I’m reading The Dinner Guest by B.P. Walter. One More Chapter (Harper Collins) is very excited about, so of course I got excited about it. I’ve heard lots of good things and I am really looking forward to delving in!
