bookish concerns

I’ve stopped updating about individual books. I’m not entirely sure why. It just sort of happened. Anyway – I still want to keep a record here, and I’ve finished two books in the last 24 hours, so it’s update time!

Recent reads/reading challenge progress:

I’m in the Roxane Gay book club, and the September pick was a beautiful, but disturbing, book of poetry. I highly recommend it if poetry is your jam too. Trigger warning for sexual abuse.

And I love, love, love the cover. That seal. Swoon.

And…onto the next one! The first chapter has me hooked!!

This Tuesday is the release of The Last House on Needless Street, which I’ve been drooling over for ages. I’m so very excited!! I pre-ordered so it should automatically download to my kindle on midnight on Tuesday. Squee!!! Might have to stay up late.

Gotta wait until mid-Oct for Nothing But Blackened Teeth. Gah. So ready for that one too, but I do love the book anticipation. I love spooky book season!!

Okay – off to enjoy. 😘

This book was clearly written for men. Stone Barrington is a billionaire bad ass who gets laid constantly, is good at everything, is besties with the president, and like every important person in government here and in the UK, oh and saves Los Angeles from nuclear annihilation. No biggie. I read this in less than three hours, because it was the only thing available to me on the psych ward. I’ll say this for it: it was better than staring at the wall for three hours.
