Friday Reads 2/22/19

Two whole days off this weekend! No church activities except dance rehearsal. Woot! Maybe I'll get some reading done. Here's crossing my fingers!

Home and Away

Home and Away by Candice Montgomery - My boss handed me this book and said he wanted me to read it so we can talk about it. Ooookaaaay. I mean, it's not like I'm reading every new YA book coming out this year. What's one more, right? It's not terrible so far. It's about a teenage black girl who comes from a very affluent family. She plays football, which is kind of cool. And she's not even just a kicker. Anyway, she finds out that her mom had an affair in college with a white professor and she is the result of that affair. She's kinda pissed.

Death Prefers Blondes

Death Prefers Blondes by Caleb Roehrig - I just started this one the other day. It's about a group of teenage cat burglars who dress as drag queens while they do their job. So far (50 pages) it's kind of hilarious and a lot action-packed. They already botched a job and the Los Angeles Museum of Fine Arts.

Four Dead Queens

Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte - I think this will be next after the drag queens book. This one is a fantasy about a pick pocket in this world that is divided into 4 quadrants that are very isolated from each other. She steals things from one quadrant to sell in another. She accidentally steals a thing that alerts them to the intended murders of the four queens. I got this from the Goodreads blurb, so I have no idea if I go it right.

So those are my reading plans for this week. What do you have on your reading plate?
