What Are You Reading?

My reading/listening choices are weird as usual. I finished listening to Leah Remini’s TROUBLEMAKER, and I just started  A WOMAN IS NOT MAN by Etaf Rum. I know, I know, very eclectic selections. My interests tend to bounce around.

My next book on Kindle is THIEF RIVER FALLS by Brian Freeman, but I may put that aside for a light, fun romance to change things up.

What are you reading?

    I was reading Death on the Danube – a recent, fun, little mystery set in Budapest – but then Silver’s new book – Fighting for Elena – dropped yesterday, so I’m reading that before I go back to the mystery. After that, who knows? So many books to choose from.

    Let me know how you like that Remini book. I’ve watched her show on Scientology and I might be interested in her book if it’s any good. =o)

    Thanks, B.E.! 💖 I’m currently doing a desultory re-listen to Ilona Andrews’s Kate Daniels series. It’s been 2 years since I listened to the whole thing. I say desultory because I have holds at the library and I stop to listen to the library books so I can return them. Waiting lists, you know. Books of note that I’ve listened to recently:

    Karen Hawkins: LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON. Magic realism set in her Dove Pond series. I 💕 this series! It’s like drinking sweet tea on a shady porch and breathing in warm, magnolia-scented air.

    Milla Vane, A HEART OF BLOOD AND ASHES. Fantasy. Dark and dirty and violent. Not for the faint of heart, but she sucked me into her world and I loved her H/h. This book is why I’m back on Kate Daniels. Convoluted path–Vane had a novella set in her HBA world published in the NIGHT SHIFT anthology with Andrews, Nalini Singh, and Lisa Shearin. After listening to the anthology, I realized I missed Kate and Curran, hence the re-listen. 🤣

    Also just finished J. Frost’s WICKED BITE. It was okay. Other’s mileage may vary. Me? I was glad I got it from the library.

    Must write words before I get to indulge in other people’s stories today. :) Happy Humpy Reading Day, y’all! ;)

    I’m currently reading Melissa de la Cruz’s The Queen’s Assassin. It’s pretty good.
    I’m also reading Peter Schweizer’s Secret empires : how the American political class hides corruption and enriches family and friends. It’s amazing how corrupt people are :(.

    I’ve been thinking about reading Leah’s book for a while now. Do you like it?

    I hope you are having a great day!

    B.E., I have Silver’s book on my Kindle too :-) I pretty much listened nonstop to Leah Remini’s book. I think it was good, she’s very clear that this is her point of view, and seems very honest. I watched the first two seasons of her Scientology show too. I’m not sure there’s anything new in the book, but it gave a bit more in depth about what Scientology meant to her, and why, which I found fascinating.

    Silver, Congrats on the release of FIGHTING FOR ELENA! I bought it today–yesterday Microsoft did an annoying forced update that took a long time, so I didn’t get over to snap up your book until today.

    You’ve been reading a lot! I need to get back to reading magic/paranormal series :-)

    Viki, hmm, the Queens Assassin sounds familiar, but I didn’t recognize the cover when I looked it up. I’ll have to check on my Kindle to see if I read it.

    I liked Leah’s book more than I expected too. As I told B.E., I felt she gave a more complete picture of how she and her mom and sister became involved in Scientology and what she was getting from it at the time. I didn’t feel there were any surprises, it just gave me a deeper understanding.
