Goodreads Update Pt. 2 May 2021

I've only added a few books since my last Goodreads Update, so this might go pretty quickly.

Craven Manor by Darcy Coates - This comes and goes on my list. I don't remember why I took it off last time. Nor do I remember why I put it back on this time. Something made me do it. I saw something about it somewhere. Who knows. It does have a cool cover, though.

The Last Tiara by M. J. Rose - This is set during WWII, but it's about the Romanovs so we'll see. It could go either way.

The Maidens by Alex Michaelides - This is a dark academia book, but probably also a thriller. It's set at Cambridge. Students are dying and Mariana thinks one of the professors is the murderer.

Razorblade Tears by S. A. Cosby - I have the first of his books on my TBR, so I've added this one also. Two gay men are murdered. Their fathers (one black, one white), both with a criminal history, team up to find out who killed them.

Finlay Donovan Is Killing It by Elle Cosimano - I've heard this is hilarious. Finlay Donovan is a single mother, trying to deal, when she accidentally becomes a hit woman. The set-up is good. Reviews say the execution is also.

My Year of Rest and Relaxation by Ottessa Moshfegh - I have had this on my shelf for several months, but somehow it didn't make it on my TBR list. Now that is rectified.

The Giver of Stars by Jojo Moyes - I have resisted putting this on my list because of my tepid response to the first book of hers I read. But the story of the Kentucky Packhorse Librarians is pretty enticing, so I finally put it here.

Kill the Farm Boy by Delilah S. Dawson and Kevin Hearne - The blurb likens this to both Monty Python and Terry Pratchett, and also it references The Princess Bride, so I decided to pick it up yesterday. The copy I have says, "We're going to need a bigger goat." hahahaha!

And that's the end of my list. See anything exciting?
