#5OnMyTBR – At Work

#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook where you chose five books from your to-be-read pile that fit that week’s theme. If you’d like more info, head over to the announcement post!


Hello, reader!

It’s time for another 5 On My TBR post! This one seems rather appropriate for the beginning of another work week. That’s because this week’s topic is books set at work. I’m taking a bit of liberty with a couple of my choices, but I think I make it *ahem* work 😆

Alright, enough of my bad jokes, time to get to the list!


#1. While Justice Sleeps by Stacey Abrams

This thriller certainly fits the bill since the drama focuses a young law clerk who suddenly finds herself entangled in a political mess. She becomes the power of attorney for her boss when he falls into a coma and discovers he’s been working on something very controversial. It sounds like a thriller I could definitely sink my teeth into. I’ve also been wanting to try a Stacey Abrams book for a minute! This seems like a good jumping off point for me.

#2. The Night Shift by Alex Finlay

Here’s one where I’m kiiind of flexing the definition a bit. I don’t think most of this book takes place at work, but the inciting incidents are two workplace murders, so I think it counts! Besides, I really want to give this one a read and I figure if I just keep talking about it, I’ll finally pick it up. It’s a thriller with multiple POVs, which I usually enjoy, and it promises some early 2000s pop culture. I’m definitely on-board!
