Friday Reads on Saturday 2/4/23

I remembered yesterday to post this, but then I fell asleep so here we are.

I'm feeling a bit under the weather, so my reading plans are a bit chaotic. Last week I started 2 books. Then yesterday, I went to my bookshelves and pulled 5 books off my shelf to try. So here are all of these books.

Fallen Night

A Day of Fallen Night by Samantha Shannon - I have read a total of 30 pages of this massive honker. I liked those 30 pages, but it's on my kindle, and when I'm sick I want the comfort of a paper book. So I've put it aside for now.


Roses by Leila Meacham - I started this one, too. It's actually on my February TBR! But when I got sick, I didn't feel like reading it again. It still has a bookmark in it, so I haven't officially given up on it.


How to Read Nonfiction Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster - I picked this up yesterday and read 100 pages of it. This one apparently does it for me when I'm sick.

Book Lovers

Book Lovers by Emily Henry - I have really enjoyed Emily Henry's adult novels (she previously wrote YA books). This one came out last year and her next one is due this spring. This one is about a book agent and a book editor. Yay!

The Plot

The Plot by by Jean Hanff Korelitz - This is a thriller about a writing professor whose career has kind of fizzled. Once upon a time, a student told him about a plot he had come up with and the professor encouraged him to write it because it was bound to be a hit. Years later, the book has never come out, and the professor learns that the student has died, so he comandeers the plot and makes a ton of money. Then somebody starts sending him messages that they know he's a fraud.


Killers of a Certain Age by Deanna Raybourn - 4 older ladies retire from a super secret government assassin agency and go on vacation to celebrate. Then they realize their agency is trying to kill them off. Unfortunately, they picked the wrong little old ladies.

American Cozy

American Cozy: Hygge-Inspired Ways to Create Comfort and Happiness by Stephanie Pedersen - Look at this cover! I feel like being sick makes me want to be extra cozy.

And there we have it. Wish me luck.
