Friday Reads 9-27-19

Whoo boy! Friday again. Couldn't come fast enough for me. I may need to revisit my reading plans. I am just not keeping up. I'm not going to finish at least one book this month. And I have a hot date this weekend to go see Les Miserables, so that will take out a chunk of time. But hey! I don't have to work, so there's that.

Let Me Hear a Rhyme

Let Me Hear a Rhyme by Tiffany D. Jackson - I'm listening to this on audiobook which is going a lot faster than if I was reading with my eyes. I have it sped up to almost double speed because these readers talk slloooooowww. I'm almost half way through it now, but I don't get a lot of listening time on the weekends.

Death at the Chateau Bremont

Death at the Chateau Bremont by M.L. Longworth - I've only read a little bit of this, but I'm enjoying it immensely. It reminds me a lot of Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache, but with even more French. The only problem is, the print is tiny and it fills up the whole page. It's not a fast read. But I'm still holding out hope.

Killing November

Killing November by Adriana Mathers - This is the one I think I'm going to have to let go. It was dropped by my reading group. I only still had it on my list for a readathon, but I think it's just not happening. It's quite long, and I have other things to do.

Now, we'll talk about what I'm going to start next week.

Detroit City

Detroit City is the Place to Be: The Afterlife of an American Metropolis by Mark Binelli - This has been on my TBR since July 2014. I have this weird fascination with Detroit. Like, how can a city just crumble like that? Anyway, this is the next Detroit book on my list. Yes, there are more.

Call it What You Want

Call It What You Want by Brigid Kimmerer - This is the author of A Curse So Dark and Lonely that I loved and forced on everyone I know. This one is about two kids in high school with big problems. They are paired together for a project. I feel like it's a romance, but the blurb gives no indication of such a thing. We shall see.

All Eyes on Us

All Eyes on Us by Kit Frick - One of the readers in my reading group said this is better than Spin, which I read last spring. It'd have to be pretty darn good to be better than Spin. But I'm going to give it a shot.

Last Namsara

The Last Namsara by Kristen Ciccarelli - I grabbed this one because one of my dancers just read it and was raving about it. I'm not going to give myself a time limit on this one. I'll just read it until I finish it.

I don't have a lot for next week because it's only 6 days. Actually, I'm going to spread two of those books over 2 weeks and then the last one will be spread indefinitely. So, no pressure. hahahahaha! I'm hilarious.
