It’s finally summer – yay!
Wickeds, what/who are you reading now that the weather is warm and the beaches are (sort of) open?
Julie: I have so many books going right now. I just got Eddie Glaude Jr.’s book Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own. I’m also rereading Jasper Fforde’s Thursday Next series, and looking for a new series to dive into. And, of course, I have the Wickeds’ latest on my Kindle.
Jessie: I hear you, Julie! I never seem to be content with just one book at a time! I am currently reading When by Daniel H. Pink, Margaret the First by Danielle Dutton and The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I just finished Evil Things by Katja Ivar, a historical set in Finland, and An Oxford Tragedy by J. C. Masterman, both of which were really enjoyable reads.
Sherry: I rarely read more than one book at once. I’m looking forward to reading What You Don’t See by Tracy Clark, The Ninja’s Blade by Tori Eldridge, and I just finished Fields’ Guide to Pharaohs (The Poppy Fields Adventures Book 5) by Julie Mulhern. I try to balance my reading between thrillers and then something lighter.
Edith/Maddie: I don’t read more than one book at a time, either, Sherry. I’m currently reading Mary Feliz’s Snowed Under, and just finished Clara McKenna’s fabulous Murder at Blackwater Bend. I have the Low Down Dirty Vote (volume two) anthology of short crime fiction waiting on my kindle, and Shannon Baker’s The Desert’s Share. I admit I’m most excited about Ramona DeFelice Long’s debut novel, The Murderess of Bayou Rosa. I have it on my kindle, but I’m waiting for the paper copy, which is in the mail. She’s a master storyteller, and I know this is going to be a great read.
Barb: I’m a one book at a time gal, myself. Just returned from vacation, where I finished The Witch Elm by Tana French, which means I am totally caught up and have to wait for the next book like everyone else. Next, two books for Maine Clambake research. The Detective in the Dooryard: Reflections of a Maine Cop, by Timothy A. Cotton (best known for the Bangor Police Department Facebook page and the Duck of Justice) and The Thistle Inn: A Wee Bit of Scotland in Maine, by Hilary E. Bartlett.
Readers: What are you reading this July?
