Friday Reads 7-26-19

It's Friday. I don't have to work this weekend. Actually, I'm off work until next Thursday. I have 6 days to finish all these books. I finished one yesterday, so I hope it will work out.

The Queen

The Queen: The Forgotten Life Behind an American Myth by Josh Levin - I am hoping this won't be all legal stuff. So far, there is some discussion of her and her crimes, but mostly it's police stuff. There was a whole chapter on Reagan's campaign.

lovely war

Lovely War by Julie Berry - I am exactly 0 pages farther in this book than I was last weekend. Other stuff came up. I'll be catching up this weekend.


Princesses Behaving Badly: Real Stories From History - Without the Fairy-Tale Endings by Linda Rogriguez McRobbie - This book has been on my TBR since forever. It is very slow reading, though. Small print, small margins. It makes me sleepy. I hope it picks up.


The Daughters of Juarez: A True Story of Serial Murder South of the Border by Teresa Rodriguez - I can't wait to find out if they ever figured out who the murderer was. If they did, it's a hecking miracle because the investigation was so bad.

Warrior of the Wild

Warrior of the Wild by Tricia Levenseller - This one is pretty good so far. Our main character failed a big trial because the boy she thought was her friend betrayed her. Now she's kicked out of her village with the mission to kill the god who requires sacrifices every year. She's not meant to pass. The missions given to failed villagers is meant to get them killed.

Echo North

Echo North by Joanna Ruth Meyer - I'm listening to this one because I just didn't think there was any way I would have finished all the books otherwise. This is a pretty obvious Beauty and the Beast retelling. It's ok so far. Some of the worlds she visits through books are well-described.

I know you've seen all of these books before. I'm not adding anything new just yet. I'm going to take the rest of the month to go ahead and finish these up and start again next month.
