I finished listening to I Know You Know by Gilly Macmillan and enjoyed this story told by extremely unreliable narrators. Here’s my review.

I’m listening to Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens.

I finished listening to Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens and was blown away by the beauty and substance of this story. It’s impossible to believe this is a debut novel. Here’s my review.

I’m listening to The Summer Wives by Beatriz Williams.

KathyB, this book was so good. I loved the narrators and the world. I'm intrigued. I will be starting book 2 soon.

The narration was great! I was kind of stressed listening since it's not my normal romance reading with a guaranteed HEA. I'm glad you posted it here, I definitely need to pick up the next book in the series.

Great review Jonetta! I loved Where the Crawdads Sing too, it was fantastic.

Kathy, I can totally understand. I tend to like a HEA. some romance...well this did have romance. What stressed me and at the same time showed how much I loved this story is that I didn't care about the potential (view spoiler). That is a pet peeve of mine and it can pull me out of a story fast.

Jonetta, there is/was a BBC show called Strike based off this. Did you ever watch it?


message 20: by Jonetta (new)

Jonetta (ejaygirl) | 4017 comments Mod
It wasn’t immediately available here. I’ve been trying to watch.

Oh I didn't check yet. I have to look into it because I am digging this story.

It's my understanding it airs on Cinemax now as "C.B. Strike."

That was it! I don’t get Cinemax.

I finished The Cuckoo's Calling (Cormoran Strike, #1) by Robert Galbraith and the first part was good. Somewhere in the middle the mystery dragged for me. I did like how it tied itself together. I'm willing to listen to book 2 just to make sure it is for me.

I'm starting Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare Lord of Shadows (The Dark Artifices, #2) by Cassandra Clare

I finished listening to Looker by Laura Sims, a deeply disturbing look into the mind of a woman mentally derailing after her failed attempts to start a family. Here’s my review.

I put down Lord of Shadows. I think my mind shifted for a bit and I went straight down A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir A Torch Against the Night (An Ember in the Ashes, #2) by Sabaa Tahir

Dawn | 533 comments I just finished The Girl They Left Behind by Roxanne Veletzos
I loved this book and recommend it highly. It is a different take on WWII historical fiction leading into the fall of the Iron Curtain in Romania.

L J | 349 comments Secondhand Spirits (A Witchcraft Mystery, #1) by Juliet Blackwell Secondhand Spirits by Juliet Blackwell is not quite the fun cozy mystery I expected. The pig on the cover of most of the books is a shapeshifting familiar that is not my idea of a comfortable companion. Instead of a weeping ghost La Llorona is a child snatching demon. Freeze dried bat, Lily Ivory's blood and other less than wholesome things are in brew she stirs up to make a protective spell. She is not sure how much of what she believes and practices is superstition but what she is sure of is that she is a very powerful witch. This stays on my cozy mystery list but I prefer Ilona Andrews' Atlanta to Blackwell's San Francisco.
Xe Sands narration reminded me of voice used onstage for asides that the audience is supposed to hear but not the other characters. It was appropriate but I had to turn up volume more than usual to avoid missing words when there were normal household noises.

I finished listening to Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare, The Infernal Devices #1, and absolutely loved it! I highly recommend the audio version as the narrator was perfect. Here’s my review.
