What I Read: May 16-22

Full Throttle by Joe Hill: This is the third short story collection I’ve read this month, which is really out of the norm for me. Joe Hill is a great author but, like with most short story collections, this has a few hits and a few misses.

Under One Roof (The STEMinist Novellas #1) by Ali Hazelwood: I absolutely LOVED this little novella. Liam is a fantastic character, and the shorter length of this book worked perfectly for the story (a full-blown novel would either get repetitive or weighed down by unnecessary drama). Novella two comes out in a few weeks, and novella three is due in July – I’ll be downloading them to my Kindle as soon as they’re available.

Undercover Bromance (Bromance Book Club #2) by Lyssa Kay Adams: I really loved the first book in the series, so it’s a mystery why I waited a year and a half to read the second. This was delightful and hilarious – sure, the romance aspect is great, but the book club guys and their antics and interactions are what made me love this. I won’t wait as long to pick up book three.

Slightly Scandalous (Bedwyn Saga #3) by Mary Balogh: My journey through the Bedwyn saga continues (and this one had some great scenes with Wulfric and the rest of the family!) Freyja and Joshua are both incredibly unlikeable but I still enjoyed their story. This was vastly more interesting than book two, but not as lovable as book one. Not surprisingly, I have already requested book four on Libby.

Cop Town by Karin Slaughter: And thus ends my Karin Slaughter journey…at least until her next book comes out later this year. Cop Town was a great read, with some really powerful scenes that I’ll be thinking of for a long time (and one with a switchblade that I wish I could forget!) Karin also announced that a new Will Trent book is scheduled to release in 2023, so you have time to catch up (but seriously, start with the Grant County series!)

CURRENTLY READING: I’m about 15% into a historical romance I got via Libby, but I’m not sure I’m going to stick with it, so this section will just have to be a mystery this week.
