I’m currently reading…

CaptureThe Last Mrs. Parrish
by Liv Constantine
I just started the audio book for this one this morning. I wasn’t a huge fan of The Wife Between Us, and I noticed that a lot of the less complimentary reviews of that one mentioned that it felt really similar to The Last Mrs. Parrish, but that The Last Mrs. Parrish was better. Fingers crossed that this one does more for me than The Wife Between Us. 

The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters
by Balli Kaur Jaswal
(ARC provided by publisher)
Jaswal may be one of my new favorite authors. This was my second book by her, the first being Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows, which I read for my book club. This novel is about a group of sisters going on a pilgrimage of sorts to India, fulfilling a dying request of their mother, who was born there.

The Invited
by Jennifer McMahon
(ARC provided by NetGalley)
This has a 3.88 average on GoodReads right now, so I honestly didn’t think I was going to like it, but so far this is a fun ghost story. It definitely feels a bit tropey and cliche, but sometimes those kinds of books can be comfort reads. The Invited is about a couple that moves out to the country to build their own house. Some of the locals don’t seem to want them there, and there are rumors flying about a malicious ghost haunting the land they’ve just purchased.

I recently finished reading…

I totally forgot to do a WWW Wednesday last week because I thought it was Tuesday all day on Wednesday (oops), so I’ve got two weeks’ worth of books here. Lost Roses, by Martha Hall Kelly was probably my favorite of this bunch. It’s a prequel to Lilac Girls. Lilac Girls takes place during WWII, and Lost Roses takes place during WWI and there are some characters in common between the two books.

My Sister, the Serial Killer was also a good one; this is a fun thriller, and the title pretty much gives you the premise. The main character feels bound by family loyalty into helping her sister cover up her misdeeds.

I have reviews posted for Lost Roses, The Wolf and the Watchmanand The Perfect GirlfriendI still plan on reviewing Fight or Flight, Homegoing, and My Sister, the Serial Killer. 

Up next…

  1. I just started a couple new books yesterday; Rising Strong by Brené Brown, and Mansfield Park (reread 😉 by Jane Austen.
    Earlier in the day I’d finished reading Homes by Abu Bakr Al-Rabeeah & Winnie Yeung, and also Lagom (not too little, not too much) by Niki Brantmark.
    I’m looking forward to getting my teeth into Cannery Row by John Steinbeck, and Away by Jane Urqhart…
