It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? – 15 August 2016

By Whatsheread
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? Button Hosted by Kathryn from Book Date, this is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind. To learn more about each book, just click on the book cover!

FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff
 
Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris


DID NOT FINISH:

The Matchmakers of Minnow Bay by Kelly Harms

I am sure that Ms. Harms’ novel is perfectly lovely, complete with the requisite soul-searching and happy ending that tend to denote women’s fiction. I am sure I would have even (somewhat) enjoyed the story . However, when I see the same phrase – “best friend” – used six times in the first three pages (I counted) and a similar phrase – “oldest best friend” – used even more frequently in the next five pages, I am not going to be spending a lot of time with any novel. Sorry.


CURRENT READ:

I Will Send Rain by Rae Meadows
The Rest I Will Kill by Brian McGinty


CURRENT LISTEN:

Liar, Temptress, Soldier, Spy by Karen Abbott


UP NEXT:

Honestly, I’m just reading as fast as I can because September has WAY too many awesome releases.


So, what are you reading?
