aka another one of these?!

 


Yes, I know that it’s Monday and that I usually do these types of posts on a Friday, but…well, here we are.

 

 

As I type this, I’ve just finished Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which continues to prove one of my favorites in the series. Now I am about to re-enter another world that I love:

I can’t wait to fall in love with Simon and Baz all over again.

Monday Reads

aka What I’m reading this week!

 

 


This one shouldn’t be too hard for those of you who are following my Goodreads updates, but, for those of you who only see these posts, this might be welcome information.

 

 

These week on ‘Dee Reads for Food’ we have:

Have you ever played two truths and a lie?

Emma has. Her first summer away from home, she learned how to play the game. And she learned how to lie.

Then three of her new friends went into the woods and never returned . . .

Now, years later, Emma has been asked to go back to the newly re-opened Camp Nightingale. She thinks she’s laying old ghosts to rest but really she’s returning to the scene of a crime.

Because Emma’s innocence might be the biggest lie of all…

I really enjoyed Final Girls, especially Sager’s writing style, so this one was a no brainer. Getting approved for this ARC definitely made my day. Expected date of publication: July 12, 2018.

 

I’m also listening to the audiobook of

I told you, I’m in the mood for rereads.

I almost forgot that today was Post Day (!)… So this is the best you get. I’m sorry.

 

Spectacle Vol 1 by Megan Rose Gedris

 

36580694
Pragmatic engineer Anna works as a psychic in the Samson Brothers Circus, but she doesn’t believe in anything supernatural—until her twin sister Kat is murdered and comes back as a very demanding ghost. Sharing a room with her sister was hard, but now they’re sharing a body while trying to identify the killer. With few leads, a troupe full of secretive folk, and strange paranormal occurrences popping up around the circus, solving the case seems near impossible. But the murderer in their midst may be the least of their problems…

 

So far I am loving the art. The colors are eye-catching and the art is sufficiently mystical looking. Look out for my thoughts on this one soon.

Hold by Michael Donkor

Moving between Ghana and London, Hold is an intimate, moving, powerful coming-of-age novel. It’s a story of friendship and family, shame and forgiveness; of learning what we should cling to, and when we need to let go.
Belinda knows how to follow the rules. As a housegirl, she has learnt the right way to polish water glasses, to wash and fold a hundred handkerchiefs, and to keep a tight lid on memories of the village she left behind when she came to Kumasi.
Mary is still learning the rules. Eleven-years old and irrepressible, the young housegirl-in-training is the little sister Belinda never had.
Amma has had enough of the rules. A straight-A pupil at her exclusive South-London school, she has always been the pride of her Ghanaian parents. Until now. Watching their once-confident teenager grow sullen and wayward, they decide that sensible Belinda might be just the shining example Amma needs.
So Belinda is summoned from Ghana to London, and must leave Mary to befriend a troubled girl who shows no desire for her friendship. She encounters a city as bewildering as it is thrilling, and tries to impose order on her unsettling new world.
As the Brixton summer turns to Autumn, Belinda and Amma are surprised to discover the beginnings of an unexpected kinship. But when the cracks in their defences open up, the secrets they have both been holding tightly threaten to seep out.

 

 

This has been a bit of a slower read for me (no fault of the book I don’t think). I keep getting distracted by more light-hearted reads, or tv…

 

 

(I’m very tempted to start Obsidio too)

WWW Wednesday

Oh, hello. It is I! A non-Wednesday poster, posting on a Wednesday. But I figured that I owed you all a post this week since I haven’t posted in a while.

 

This one I found when I was looking up typical Wednesday bookish topics and it seems pretty popular. And simple enough to join in on, you only have to answer three questions.

 

Here goes nothing.

 


 

What are you currently reading –

I’ve only just started the third book in the Small Town series (what started as a trilogy is now promised to be, at the least, a quartet. The author recently announced book four.)

In this one, we’ve found out who our killer is, and now our MCs are trying to piece their lives back together. I want to see how Edwards does this one.

 

What did you finish reading recently –

Believe it or not…I finished book two only last night. After speeding through the first bits of it on the first day that I picked it up, I put it down and didn’t pick it up again for a while. Then I flew through the end like nobody’s business. As with the first one, there were the typical sins of a first-time author, self-publishing, which led to an air of predictability. But, I could overlook those because I got my satisfactory retribution. I just wish someone would knock Alice on the head a couple of times though.

 

 

 

 

What do you think you will be reading next –

This one has been on my TBR for a long time, but, I’m making it a priority. It’s a retelling so it HAS to be a priority for me. Cuz, duh!

 


What are you reading on this wonderful Wednesday?
