My reading pace has slowed lately with my grad school semester getting underway and life progressing as it does. However, I have managed to read a couple of interesting things worth sharing briefly.
Foe, by Ian Reid, was a chilling and surprisingly literary thriller. Read it if you're at all interested in the type of thriller where things are slightly askew but you're not quite sure why, but don't look up the synopsis. It's better that way. I think I knew a little too much about it going in but I still really liked it.
Currently I'm reading As Long As We Both Shall Live, by JoAnn Chaney. This book has been hyped for a while on some websites and podcasts that I enjoy so I was thrilled to get it from the library and dive in. The writing is witty and quick and it's a return to the tightly wound domestic suspense that I love reading that truly feels original and clever when it's still just a story of a murder. Sometimes a good mystery is just what I want to escape into. Interestingly, there's another book out this year that has a similar title and a near exact cover, like it's so similar it seems like an oversight to me. A book I read last year had it's title changed because it was too similar to another popular book published, even though they were visually very different and their plots were also unique. I haven't read that yet (not sure if it's out yet) but it'd be interesting to compare the two since I'm positive they'll be mixed up for each other all summer at least.
I've recently updated some of the features here on the website and wanted to tell you about them.
In the RESOURCES section (linked here and above in the menu), I've updated the links, added a few more fun podcasts, and restructured the order of the lists to make things more findable. There's a section for newsletters I enjoy, websites I look to for good book deals and to discover new books, poetry resources, and other
In the BOOK CLUB DATABASE section (linked here and above in the menu), all the celebrity book club current book selections have been updated and every book mentioned is linked as well.
