What I’m reading tonight

This week has been hectic but now it’s time to wind down and take some me-time. I’ve started reading a book the last hour before bedtime – here’s this week’s TBR list.

This week has been hectic but now it’s time to wind down and take some me-time. I’ve started reading a book the last hour before bedtime just because I need to unplug from the phone, my computer, and yes even television.

Books I expect to finish this week:

The Woman who Fell to Earth by Jennifer Brasington-Crowley. Fun, quick read with a lot of Brit humor to it at this point.

A little bit of fantasy, a little bit of magic, and a whole lot of Ziggy Stardust, The Woman Who Fell To Earth is a fun adventure, full of colorful, unforgettable characters, mystery and suspense. It’s a joyride down the rabbit hole for new or longtime David Bowie fans or for anyone who has ever felt alone.

Salt Water and other short stories by Sef Hughes. The great thing about short stories is they can break the mold. Already getting an off-kilter, outside-the-box thinking with this one.

Eleven furiously original and off-centre stories that blend dark magical realism with gripping domestic drama to create tales that range from the hauntingly sinister to the downright bizarre.

⁠ Just finished Reading:

Masque by W.R. Gingell

Almost, but not quite perfect read for me. Clever, witty, and interesting hero-heroine dynamic. If you like your romance to have fun dialogue this book will interest you. Where the book failed to enchant though was the heroine was too stubborn (why didn’t she just share info with the hero? so they could prevent more people from dying?) and the Beauty/Beast theme was really irrelevant to the story and seemed like an add-on.

Lady Isabella Farrah didn’t expect a proposal from a masked man at the Annual Ambassadorial Ball—nor did she expect a murder.

Blood & Water by Briana Morgan: a good pick for a college-aged reader, someone who likes Dystopian fiction and medical disasters. Could make an interesting movie or serial.

Seventeen-year-old Jay Harris lives in a London struck down by a deadly virus. His parents are dead, along with half the world. When Jay’s sister Maia falls ill, he must find a cure before he loses her, too. But unbeknownst to Maia, Jay is also sick… and he’s running out of time to save them both.

Maids of Misfortune by M. Louisa Locke

I hated this book with the power of 1000 suns. DNF. Historically inaccurate, over-the-top militant female character who I had no sympathy for, and a racist scene of blackface (with no context) in chapter 1.
