What do you think you’ll read next?

Ghost

Currently reading: I’m dedicated to finishing The Hangman’s Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko now, though it may slow down a bit with Baby coming this weekend! My mom insists nursing is good reading time, but we’ll see where my energy levels are. They might be at more of an audiobook level for a while. Here’s hoping I finish it!
I’m loving The King of Crows (Diviners #4) by Libba Bray and I’m flying through it. It’s been a long time since I read a series so finishing one off has a lot of satisfaction tied to it. It helps that the narration on this is spectacular!
I’ve gotten through a little bit of The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson and I’m getting some serious Ghost Bride vibes. Not sure if that’s good or bad yet. We’ll see how this goes. It did start with quite a bang so I hope the tension stays high!

MoscowRecently finished: Reading Buddy and I met Tuesday for our final discussion of A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. Finished just in time before Baby! I’m feeling great about this and even managed to post my review on Monday. We both ended up enjoying this one a lot even though my Buddy was a little apprehensive when we started. I gave it Four out of Five Stars. I hope we can start reading together again soon. I told my husband that’s one thing I’d like his support to do as a new parent.

KellyReading next: I’ll likely need a physical book next and I’ll honestly grab the next thing on my shelf because I doubt I have the brain capacity to go to the library or do an Interlibrary Loan any time soon. So next up is likely True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I’ve had some good luck with true crime books this year (though this one is fictionalized, it’s still making me think of Say Nothing) and I know a bit about Ned Kelly so I’m excited to get into this and see how it goes.

Crows

Currently reading: I keep pushing through with The Hangman’s Replacement: Sprout of Disruption by Taona Dumisani Chiveneko but I have come to a quick stop to try and finish my buddy read before Baby comes. I’ll finish this eventually but I’m in no real hurry.
Reading Buddy and I met on Monday and we’re powering through the final section of A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles. We’ll meet early next week to talk about the ending, right before Baby is coming! I’m sure we’ll take a break from this for a month or so but I can’t wait to read with her again, it’s a real joy to make time to talk about books with a good friend.
Some new books! I was so excited to start on The King of Crows (Diviners #4) by Libba Bray. I wanted to listen to this one earlier but my library was having issues with their rental system and I grabbed another book instead. I’m excited to finish this series that I’ve been enjoying a lot for a few years now!
I’m having repeated issues with book availability for my next ebook. I wanted to read Rosen’s Dollface, but it’s no longer available! There’s another title I was looking for that’s not letting me borrow it for whatever reason. So, third string attempt. I started The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. This is one my sister in law gave me for Christmas years back and I haven’t picked up yet. I’m excited to see what she’s picked for me.

Lateral

Recently finished: I’m so glad to have finished books! I wrapped up Lateral Thinking by Edward de Bono while waiting on a procedure (doctors offices are good for something!). I found it dragged in parts and was fine in others. I gave it Three out of Five Stars overall and posted my review on Monday.
I also finished up New York 2140 by Kim Stanley Robinson on Saturday! I was driving to a workout and it wrapped up as I pulled into the parking lot so you know it was mean to be. This book was a big disappointment for me and unfortunately turned me off to the author in general. I gave it only Two out of Five Stars and posted my review yesterday.
Reading next: I’m just starting so many things that I don’t have any plans at this time. We’ll see what moves fast and where I’ll need another book soon. I’m just so excited to have finished a few things!
