I had five reviews post this month with nothing TBD! I also was able to catch up on some personal reads over Spring Break, which is good because I’m headed into a review book-heavy period. Tell me, have you read anything good lately?

On my nightstand: The City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin. This was going to be my “book published in 2016” but I got an ARC and I don’t include review books in the challenge if at all possible. It’s the long-awaited book three in The Passenger series.
I’m listening to: The Cuckoo’s Calling by Robert Galbraith (aka JK Rowling) for “a murder mystery.”
Reviews and Other Posts:
- Where We Fall by Rochelle B. Weinstein. A character-driven novel set in North Carolina that deals with mental illness, parenting, football, and love that was meant to be.
- The Passenger by Lisa Lutz, read by Madeleine Maby. Tanya Dubois is on the run, changing her identity while trying not to get caught. Fast-paced doesn’t even describe this novel.
- Sisters of Heart and Snow by Margaret Dilloway. Estranged sisters are reunited when their ailing mother asks them to find a book about a woman Samurai who may be their ancestor.
- Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes, read by Santino Fontana. This is the sequel to You and picks up right where that one left off. After Joe finds out Amy was just using him, he follows her across the country to LA, where he’s dazzled by Hollywood.
- Take Wendy Wax’s Cheez Doodle Challenge and enter to win a copy of then latest noel in the Ten Beach Road series.
These fit categories for this year’s Pop Sugar Challenge.
- A book with a protagonist who has your occupation – Chaos Theories by Stephen Banks. This is a big stretch for the category but it’s about a guy that works in a software company, so close enough.
- A book that’s under 150 pages – The Fifth Child by Doris Lessing
- A book set in Europe – The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan
- A book that’s becoming a movie this year – Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll, read by Madeleine Maby
