I’m working again today and hope to check in with all my blogging friends later if possible. Even when I was working 40 hours during the week around the holidays, I had Wednesdays off, so it feels a little weird to be working them. I’m happy for the extra hours, though, I will say that.
It’s WWW Wednesday, where I answer three questions: What are you reading, what did you finish, and what do you plan to read?
What are you currently reading/listening to?
The Secret of the Wooden Lady (Nancy Drew Mystery Stories #27) (Amazon). What’s funny about Nancy Drew books is that even though I read them several times each growing up, I can’t remember specific plots except for a few. And I’ve never read the Original Texts before, even though I collected them in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. The Nancy Drew fatigue has somewhat worn off, so I’m looking forward to reading this volume.
The Final Revival of Opal and Nev by Dawnie Walton (Amazon) is what I’m listening to. “A poignant fictional oral history of the beloved rock ‘n’ roll duo who shot to fame in the 1970s New York, and the dark, fraught secret that lies at the peak of their stardom.”
What did you finish reading/listening to?
#NetGalley #ArcReview Barefoot Dreams of Petra Luna (review on Thursday)
Famous Mistakes (Nancy Drew Diaries #17) (review on Friday)
The Bright Side of Going Dark by Kelly Harms (review on Monday)
The Last Correspondent by Soraya M. Lane (review on Tuesday)
What are you going to read/listen to next?
Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir (Amazon) is a NetGalley ARC that I think I’ll tackle next. I was going to read it a few weeks ago and get a review out for it before it’s May 4th release date, but it says right on the first page of the ARC not to publish reviews before the publication date. I don’t see how there are already so many reviews out there for it, unless of course the people who received the ARCs didn’t actually read the front page of the book or don’t think it applies to them.
The Thursday Murder Club by by Richard Osman (Amazon) is next up on audiobook. I am so tired of waiting for this book from the library (currently at 43) I just burned an Audible credit to get my hands on the book sooner.
“In a peaceful retirement village, four unlikely friends meet weekly in the Jigsaw Room to discuss unsolved crimes; together, they call themselves the Thursday Murder Club.
When a local developer is found dead with a mysterious photograph left next to the body, the Thursday Murder Club suddenly find themselves in the middle of their first live case.
As the bodies begin to pile up, can our unorthodox but brilliant gang catch the killer, before it’s too late?”
What about you? What have you been up to this week?
