What Are You Reading?

I have a pile of books that I'm sampling this week, but the one I'm carrying with me to work is Jayne Ann Krentz' Secret Sisters. I used to read her books on a regular basis, but when I looked back at the blog, I must not have read one of her novels in over eleven years. I guess it's been a while! Secret Sisters is romantic suspense,  a novel about secrets from eighteen years earlier that come back to haunt two women. I'm only seventy pages into it, but I'm enjoying it so far. I'm also reading a book for a journal review, and testing a couple other titles.


What are you reading this week? Inquiring minds want to know.

Seekers by Daniel Boorstin

I'm surprised my wife hasn't read that one yet as she reads everything by Krentz/Jayne Castle/Amanda Quick.

We're getting read to leave for Florida soon so reading has been down, but I'm reading the 500-page LEVIATHAN WAKES, the first book in The Expanse series (a lot more comprehensible than the SyFy series) by James S. A. Corey. Also short stories, of course.

I'm reading a ARC of DESIGN FOR DYING by Renee Patrick (Rosemarie & Vince Keenan).

I just finished The Nature of the Beast last night. Why did I save this one for a treat? I mean, it was a treat, but wow. Anyway, now I'm on to A Killing in the Hills by Julia Keller. I've wanted to read the Bell Elkins series for a while. I'll be interested in hearing how you do with the Krentz book. I've read many of her books and enjoyed all of them. But it's been a while for me too. I used to love her Arcane series.

I'm reading Sweet Pepper Hero by J.J. Cook and am enjoying it.

I have two books going at the moment.

In print, I am reading MURDER IS AN ART by the one and only Bill Crider. This will reviewed for FFB in a week or two thanks to the good folks of the Plano Public Library System.

In e-book form, I am working on the latest mystery from author BJ Bourg, BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. A very good mystery from Amber Quill Press which is closing its doors in a few weeks. Go pick this up while you can.

I'm reading Slayed on the Slopes by Kate Dyer-Seeley. I just started it last night after finishing Better Homes a Corpses by Kathleen Bridge.

I'm sorry, everyone, that I'm late getting back. I was sidetracked by the death of Alan Rickman. Since I do the social media for the library, I was handling Alan Rickman posts - Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. It's a sad loss for film & theater.

Love to see what you're all reading, though. Jeff, your wife will probably like this one.

I'm in the middle of Mycroft Holmes by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and co-writer, and I'm enjoying it. On the non-fiction side, I'm reading Tosha Silver's Outrageous Openness.

Lesa said...

Margie, I'm leading the book discussion for Mycroft Holmes for our book club late in the year. It is good, isn't it? I actually drifted somewhere in the middle, bogging down a little, but it came back together.

I'm reading The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith. It's intense. Love it.

Sharon said...

I am reading A Man Called Ove. Another book blog I follow listed it as her favorite read last year. I am enjoying it. I just finished The Year of Living Danishly by Helen Russell. I liked that one also.

Patricia Stoltey said...

I'm reading all of Nelson DeMille's John Corey novels. Just finished Wild Fire and started The Lion.

Carol N Wong said...

I reading an ARC if Rules of Murder by Julianna Deering. It is difficult to get used to pace after the fast gallop of the previous book I read, this one is a slow cancer. The author thought it would be fun to write a mystery where all ten of the rules of mystery writing are broken. Now I keep looking for the broken rules.

Lesa said...

Thank you! Reine, I haven't yet read the first of those books, and I need to do that.

Lesa said...

It sounds like one I wouldn't get excited about, Carol. I like the rules.
