  1. The Hollywood Daughter
    I'm really enjoying this book, and I wish in some ways that I had more time to just curl up wiith it for a few hours at a time. But I'm travelling and spending time with good friends, snatching a few moments here and there for this. It's an easy, unpretentious read so even through tiredness or jetlag I can get through some pages. I'm two thirds into it, and really curious as to what happens next. Solid 8.2/10
  2. The Fortune Hunter by Daisy Goodwin
    English nobility love and scandal. A very quick read. Wasn't sure if I wanted the main characters to end up together or not. Glad I read it but it was far from phenomenal.

  3. Evicted: Poverty and Profit In the American City by Matthew Desmond
    I'm slowly working my way through this one for my book club. It's totally heartbreaking and eye opening. The author, a Harvard sociologist, tells the story of eight families in the poorest neighborhoods in Milwaukee, WI and their landlords.

  4. The King Must Die by Mary Renault
    Just got started. A retelling of the Theseus myth. I like myth and so I have high hopes.

  5. Twenty-six Seconds by Alexandra Zapruder.
    About the infamous Kennedy assignation tape. I've heard about it all my life but never watched till now. The book was dry. I liked the autobiographical parts the best. 6/10

  7. And Every Morning the Way Hone Gets Longer and Longer by Fredrick Backman.
    I have now read all his books. This is a very short novella. I read it in an hour. Very, very sad. 😭 10/10 His new book has been placed on my library hold list. Yes, I read 3 books this weekend. Well, actually finished one and started and finished two.

  8. Something Rising- Haven Kimmel
    I don't hate it so far but I'm only a chapter in. Haven Kimmel writes beautifully and makes you feel entwined in the story and characters so I think it will be a positive experience for me regardless.

  9. Homegoing by Yaa Gyusi
    Gripping, heartbreaking, beautiful.
