Kelly

Currently reading: I fell off this week with The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. Things were a little nuts with bad weather and a fussy baby so we’re just surviving now and that’s fine.
Again, nothing with True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I was so tired this week that I’m not surprised picking up a book to read for five minutes wasn’t on my agenda. I’ll get to it eventually I’m sure.
I did make a bit of progress in Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie. I took Baby to visit a friend who is due soon and it was a bit of a drive each way. Baby was babbling but otherwise happy and I turned on the audio to keep me entertained. We were both fine with the arrangement.

Recently finished: Nothing again. I’m sure I’ll get there soon, but I’m in no rush.

51FUsCV0vdLReading next: If I need an ebook next as I suspect, I’ll grab A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman.
However, I’m starting to think I might get to an audiobook sooner since I’ve slowed down so much on my ebook reading. Next on the docket for me is a long haul, Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati. It’s been about three years since I read the first book in this series and I enjoyed the story and was frustrated when I learned it wasn’t a standalone book. I’m hoping the second in the series will provide a more satisfactory ending.

Leave a comment with your link and comment (if you’re so inclined). Take a look at the other participant links in the comments and look at what others are reading.

Have any opinions on these choices?

Until next time, write on.

    A 19th century female doctor? Where The Light Enters looks promising.

    My books this week are all female focused: a biography of an icon, a woman’s eye view of divorce, and a thriller about a mom who faces danger head on as she attempts to protect her kids.

    Oh, I get so frustrated when a truly excellent book gives me a cliffhanger ending and surprises me with a series. I don’t mind going in but I don’t like the feeling of peering and the number of pages left and wondering how they will all tie it together only to find out – they weren’t! Hopefully the second book skips that trick.

    Enjoy your week!

    Glad that the car journey was fine and the audio book helped 😂 I’ve had a fussy toddler this week and for maybe about the last year or so 😂. I was hoping terrible 2s kept to the year but alas no 😂 luckily my partner takes him to bed and I get to do my reading in secret! If I didn’t I would only be reading his books and none of mine would get read 🤣😂
