Current Reads

  • Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan: I had checked this book out from the library but never got around to picking it up. So, when I was looking for a new audiobook to read and this one popped up on Scribd, I instantly downloaded it! So far, I’m really loving the tone of this story. It is beautifully written and evocative, making me feel like I’m in the book alongside the characters. Our main character, Xingyin, is fascinating and I can’t wait to continue her story.
  • The Book of Cold Cases by Simone St. James: I’m finally reading a Simone St. James book! I’ve been wanting to try a thriller by her for awhile now. I have quite literally just started this one (I’m on, like… page 5) so I have no opinions about the book either way. I’m not actively hating it, so… so far, so good!

  • The A.B.C. Murders by Agatha Christie: Slowly, but surely, I’m catching up with the Poirot readalong I’ve been participating in since last year. I was so happy that Captain Hastings was back for this one! He’s one of my favorite characters and such a good foil to Poirot. I love their banter, haha. Hastings being back definitely bumped up my enjoyment of this installment, but I was also fascinated with the mystery. It was an interesting premise and the reveal at the end caught me by surprise. All in all, this is going up there as one of my favorite Poirot novels.
  • The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake: I finally read my library copy of this book and I completely understand where all the hype is coming from. This was such an intense ride! It was a little denser than I was anticipating and there were portions where I could feel my eyes glazing over (mostly when Libby was expounding on some concept or another…) but, overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this. Hated Callum. I would like to toss Callum in a dumpster fire. He is the legitimate worst. But the book was incredible!
  • The Merciless Ones by Namina Forna: Speaking of intense rides, one of my most anticipated reads of 2022 did not disappoint! This sequel built upon what the first book, The Gilded Ones, established in a seamless way. It was so easy to fall back into this world. It was just as vivid and cinematic as the first time!

What’s Next

Honestly? I have no idea. I have so many books I want to read in June stacked up on my desk that I’m overwhelming myself a little bit. You know when you’re spoiled for choice to the point that you can’t make a decision? That’s me right now. All these wonderful books stacked in front of my and I want to read them all simultaneously, so my brain is short-circuiting and not settling on anything 😂 Hopefully, once I’m done with my current reads, one of the books in my possible June reads stack will jump out at me.

  1. Haha, your hate for Callum has me actually wanting to read the book so I can meet his character. TAS is still on my “maybe” pile as I’ve been seeing so many mixed things but with each review I see, the more it creeps towards my proper TBR pile. I hope you continue to enjoy Daughter of the Moon Goddess! That one has been on my wishlist too 🙂 Happy reading!

    • Ugh, it’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to climb into a book simply to slap a character but CALLUM DESERVES IT 😤 I can definitely see why there are mixed reviews for The Atlas Six. It’s not gonna be something everyone loves, but I loved the atmosphere and the drama.
