I thought that staying home would mean that I would be reading more often, but that has been far from the case. I feel like I am just starting to get back into it. I thought that I would share with you some of those books that I hope to read in the next few weeks, but being a mood reader this could easily change!
Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O’Neill
This is my current read (along with Cresent City for a buddy read) and it is incredible so far. Heather O’Neill is one of my favourite authors and this book has reminded me why. She is a master at creating atmosphere and I find myself deeply attached to her characters. This book is emotional and I am ready for it to destroy me.
The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix
I have preordered The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires, which actually comes out tomorrow! I am unsure when it will actually get here but as soon as it does I am dropping everything to read it. I have been anxiously awaiting its release and I have a feeling it is going to be a new favourite. As I keep saying, I am so ready for vampires to come back!
Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
It is finally happening! I am fully committed to reading Gemina and maybe even Obsidio. It would be so satisfying to finally finish this series, especially since I loved Illuminae so much. So many people tell me that Gemina is the best book in the series!
The Brideship Wife by Leslie Howard
I received an ARC of The Brideship Wife from Simon and Schuster Canada and something about it is calling to me. I am in the mood for a historical fiction novel set during the Victorian Era! I have been drawn to books set in Canada lately and this one is set in British Columbia.
Still Life by Louise Penny
This is a series I have been wanting to read for years, but so far there are sixteen books! That is very intimidating, especially for someone like me who is terrible a series. That said, there is something about it that I am drawn to and my gut says I will love. Another bonus is that it is set in Canada.
Well Met by Jen DeLuca
Well Met just sounds adorable and I know that at some point I am going to be in the mood for a cute romance. I have heard great things about Well Met and I love that it takes place at a Renaissance Faire. I actually read the first chapter a few months ago and was enjoying it, but I got distracted by something else.
Lost in a Good Book by Jasper Forde
I feel like I talk about how much I loved The Eyre Affair constantly on this blog, so I am mad at myself for waiting so long to continue with the series. I have a feeling that it is a series that just gets better and better. I love the whole premise of these books and I can not wait to see where the story goes!
