Current Reads

  • Finlay Donovan Jumps the Gun by Elle Cosimano: The third book in the Finlay Donovan series is proving to be just as fun as the first two. Fun, but also really pushing that suspension of disbelief, ya know? I can feel myself growing bored with this concept of a suburban mom tangling with the Russian mob and, somehow, not being brutally murdered. I mean, I’m not done with the book so who knows but I get the feeling her pluck and terrible decisions will carry her through. It was fine in the first book but, as the stakes get higher, it gets a lot more eye-roll inducing 😅
  • Appointment with Death by Agatha Christie: I’m back on my Poirot journey! I found the next three books in the series at the library and it felt like a sign. I’m almost halfway through the book and, beyond a brief appearance at the very beginning, Poirot hasn’t even shown up yet! We’re getting a lot of build up to the murder that really feels like justification for the murder, haha. Still, I’m intrigued to see where this goes, as in who eventually murders Mrs. Boynton and how Poirot will figure it out.

Recently Finished

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
  • Love Times Infinity by Lane Clarke: Y’all, this was such an endearing YA romance while, at the same time, being an incredible look at some difficult topics. This is one I would suggest checking trigger warnings for because the author doesn’t shy away from heavy things, which I always appreciate in young adult books. I adored our two main characters, Michie and Derek! They had such depth and warmth and I wanted to hug them both. It was sweet watching their romance blossom throughout the book. I also loved Michie’s friendships and how they don’t take a backseat to the main romance! This was a great read.
  • The Guest List by Lucy Foley: This was my second thriller by this author and, I gotta say, I liked The Paris Apartment better. This was fine. The writing was compelling and the atmosphere was spot on. But how everything wrapped up made me roll my eyes so hard they almost fell out. It was just so convenient! I found myself saying “Really?” out loud, multiple times, in steadily more incredulous tones 😂 The build up to the reveal was great. The actual reveal? Disappointing. Still, it’s worth the read just for the ride to the end.

What’s Next

  • 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne: This is one of the buddy reads I’ll be reading in March. I’m in a romance readalong group because, after dipping my toes in the genre last year, I realized I wanted more! I’m still learning what I like and don’t like in the genre and what better way to learn more than to expand my romance reading? I know I’ve heard about this book before but I legitimately don’t remember what it’s about at all, lol. Guess I’ll jump in and see how it goes!
  • The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill: This is another one of my buddy reads for March. This is the book pick for Middle Grade Marvels and I’m excited to pick it up. I’ve heard nothing but great things about this book, so I’m hoping I love it. Besides, I’m sure it will be a quick read and, in a month when I’ll be trying to read… a lot of books (stay tuned for my TBR), it will be nice to have something I can get through quickly.
