Here's a list of what I’ve been reading this month:

  • A Killer’s Mind (Zoe Bentley Mystery Book 1) by Mike Omer | I am only about a chapter into this book but it seems like it’s going to be a fast read. I will let you know more next time.

  • Whisper Me This by Kerry Anne King | 4 stars. I really liked this story. It was very captivating, and will definitely keep you engaged. I think the author tackled a very delicate and intimate issue with a lot of care. I’ve been taking care of one family member or another for going on 10 years now and I totally connected with Maisey, the main character and her daughter, who like mine, helps her through the hard times. Very good book with a few ups and downs to keep you going.

  • Her Last Word by Mary Burton | 5 stars. I found this to be a very satisfying psychological thriller. There were definitely some twists and turns throughout and I can't say anything was ever too predictable or obvious either. This is the first book I’ve read by this author, Mary Burton, and I enjoyed it so much that I’m looking forward to reading more from her.

What else I’ve read this year:

  • Daisy Jones & The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid | 5 stars. This was Amazons March Spotlight Pick and after looking over some of the reviews, I knew immediately that I had to read it. It felt like this was THE band of the 70’s and somehow I completely missed them. Aside from that, I loved the format and how she told their stories of love, addiction, pain and passion. I definitely had a hard time remembering that it was fiction. I kept wanting to look up the band online so I could listen to this amazing album they wrote and to see their faces. So good! Highly recommended.

  • When the lights go out by Mary Kubica: I was really excited to ready this book but I was expecting a thriller/mystery and the first chapter was a lot of romance. As you can see from my reading list, I’m not big into romance novels and it was hard for me to get interested the book right from the start. I follow a basic rule that says: do not force yourself to read a book, if you don’t like it by the second or third chapters then put it down and move on. And that’s just what I did here.

I love a good thriller or murder mystery and it seems that’s all I’ve been reading lately. What are you reading these days?
