Yesterday we revealed the books we got for Christmas. But I’m sure I’m not speaking for myself when I say I already had a bunch of books started that I probably should finish first.
So, Wickeds, what are you reading to ring in the new year?
Julie: I am reading a recent Joanne Fluke for fun, and Building a Story Brand by Donald Miller for business. Have decided that reading for pleasure is high on my list for 2019, so I expect more reading this weekend!
Jessie: I am halfway through Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin, Tools of Titans by Tim Ferris and Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. I love reading a mix of fiction and non-fiction!
Edith: I just finished Louise Penny’s Kingdom of the Blind and am nearing the end of Lauren Belfer’s City of Light, which I LOVE. I had it around the house – no idea where I got it – and was absorbed almost immediately by this 1901 story of mystery, power, industry, and love in Buffalo. Turns out she has two more later books. I can’t wait!
Sherry: My reading has been ARCs to blurb including Bad Picks by Linda Lovely and Staging is Murder by Grace Topping. It’s always exciting to get a sneak peek at interesting new books. I’m also reading books for a panel I’m moderating on Saturday “Unspeakable Crimes, LGBTQ Mystery Writing.” The three authors, Brenda Buchanan, John Copenhaver, and Cheryl Head, are all amazing writers.
Liz: I’m reading Michelle Obama’s Becoming, one of my Christmas gifts, and I’m also reading Walter Mosley’s John Woman and Brene Brown’s Daring Greatly. And I have a whole bunch loaded up on my Kindle…
Barb: Sherry, I got to read a bit of Staging is Murder a couple of years ago when I did a manuscript review at Crime Bake. I knew it was gonna get published. I’m so glad I was right. It’s a terrific book. And Liz, Becoming was the most stolen book at our recent Family Christmas All Book Yankee Swap. The most often traded away? Stormy Daniels’ Full Disclosure. What can I say? It was a political Christmas. As for me, I am embarrassed to tell you I am reading my own book, Iced Under. The characters and themes continue in book eight in the Maine Clambake Mysteries, Sealed Off, and though I kept a bible including timelines and a family tree, I found there are some details I’ve forgotten, so…
