Hi Wickeds! We haven’t talked about what we’re reading in a while. What books are on your spring (almost summer – yay!) reading list?
Edith/Maddie: I’m doing some research reading about 1920s Boston via fiction, most recently Boston Girl by Anita Diamant, Dennis Lehane’s Live by Night, and The Illusionist’s Apprentice by Kristy Cambron. I also finished Agatha-nominated Murder at Mallowan Hall by Colleen Cambridge and have this year’s YA/Children’s Agatha winner, Alan Orloff’s I Play One on TV, waiting in the wings. I’m saving Annette Dashofy’s newest Zoe Chambers mystery, Fatal Reunion, for a delicious uninterrupted Sunday soon!
Julie: I have a wonderful TBR pile. Edwin Hill’s The Secrets We Share, an ARC of Sandra Wong’s In the Dark We Forget, Alex Segura’s Secret Identity, and Sujata Massey’s The Bombay Prince. I suspect I will continue exploring the audio book possibilities as well–I love finding new series to listen to.
Jessie: I love this sort of post, Liz because I love getting new reading suggestions from all of you! I am currently reading The Body- A Guide for Occupants by Bill Bryson. It is so fascinating! And I am most of the way through Illuminations by Mary Sharratt which is a historical novel about the life of Hildegard of Bingen, a powerful woman far ahead of her time in the medieval Holy Roman Empire. Next up for non-fiction is The Species Seekers by Richard Conniff, which explores the explorers who traversed the globe in search of unfamiliar plants and animals. My next novel to read is The Hired Man by Aminatta Forna which is set in Croatia.
Barb: I have the honor of interviewing Katherine Hall Page at the Maine Crime Wave on June 11, where she’ll receive the Maine CrimeMaster Award. So I am reading or rereading several of her delightful books.
Sherry: I just finished reading Find You First by Linwood Barclay and They All Fall Down by Rachel Howzell Hall. Both are chilling. The rest of my list is almost identical to Julie’s! Plus, Spook Street by Mick Herron. I bought the first book in the series for my husband last summer. He’s read them all and I’m reading through them.
Liz: I love all these, girls! Julie, Edwin’s book is on my list too. I just finished Confessions on the 7:45 by Lisa Unger – SO GOOD! Of course, I’ve got a few books going at once. I’m reading Content, Inc. by Joe Pulizzi, and listening to The Match by Harlan Coben.
Readers, what’s on your spring reading list? Give us some more to add to our TBRs!
