What I’m Reading Now (10/26/20)

what I'm reading now


I feel like my reading has finally found somewhat of a groove…funny that it happened when I stopped reading ARCs and started focusing on library holds and backlist books. Is this telling me something?!



Last week’s episode featured Eilene Zimmerman (author of Smacked).

There is no new podcast this week.

Thirteen by Steve Cavanagh (January 25, 2018)
I absolutely loved this backlist legal thriller about a celebrity trial where the killer is on the jury that was recommended by Meredith from the Currently Reading podcast. It felt like a unique take on this genre and the fast pace was just what I needed.

Can’t Even: How Millennials Became the Burnout Generation by Anne Helen Peterson (September 22, 2022) – AUDIOBOOK
I’d say 75% hit and 25% miss for me. Also, I think it’s more of a burnout book than a millennial book. Mini review to come.

I’m currently reading…

House on Fripp Island


The House on Fripp Island by Rebecca Kauffman (June 2, 2020)
Susie from Novel Visits rated this “vacation gone wrong novel” five stars. I’m about 60% through and it’s easy reading (good!), had a bit of an after-school special feel relating to class issues, but that feeling has fallen away a bit as the story has progressed.

Upcoming reading plans…

This is My America


This is My America by Kim Johnson (July 28, 2020)
Ashley Spivey recommended this #ownvoices YA novel about the racial inequality in the American justice system.

    Nice looking assortment of books. I’ve been much pickier lately when choosing books to review and liberally sprinkling in my own books. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    I agree that mood reading vs. ARC reading may be at play, Sarah.

    I just finished When No One is Watching by Alyssa Cole. It was okay. The pacing was awful and the ending didn’t match the first 3/4 of the book, at all. I wish I’d liked it more, because I do agree with and appreciated her commentary on gentrification.

    I’m trying to decide between starting Don’t Look for Me by Wendy Walker or Invisible Girl by Lisa Jewell for my next physical copy read.

    My current audiobook is Musical Chairs by Amy Poeppel.
