I can’t tell you what I’ve been reading, unfortunately, because it’s something I have deeply mixed feelings about– and when I can’t say something positive, or at least neutral, about a book, I’d rather not say anything at all. Because I know someone else (or many someones!) will love that same book that annoys me, and it would be wrong to put anyone off from it.
SO. Instead, here are some books I haven’t gotten to yet, but I’m super-excited to read:
— Ben Aaronvitch’s Lies Sleeping. Because Rivers of London. Need I say more? (For anyone who hasn’t encountered this series, think British police procedural meets Harry Potter with wonderfully snarky prose. Start with the first book, which is called Rivers of London in the UK and Midnight Riot in the US);
— and, of course, Beatriz Williams’s upcoming The Golden Hour, set in the Bahamas during World War II, featuring everyone’s least favorite royals, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, as side characters. I’ve been saving this one as a reward for good behavior in the hopes that it might actually inspire me to knock a few items off my to do list.
What have you been reading this week? And what’s on your TBR pile?
