Hello readers! I hope you all are well and had lovely week. I felt last week went really fast and I didn’t read as much as I wanted to. Blame it on Lucifer. I spent my weekend watching last season of Lucifer and it was so sad to see this series end. It was so much fun and loved every episode. There were some interesting surprises and with many lovely moments between characters. It sure made my week and ended with smile on my face.
As for the personal life, my daughter is really making things hard with all her tantrums and mischiefs. Yester I had to take her for bath for four times. Twice she put colours all over her body and one time she stuck kinetic sand all over her life she was taking shower under the sand. Nothing stays where put it and you can find her toys all over the house. Does any one know how one can make almost 3 yrs old kid listen to you? I don’t even know if she understands anything I say and I can guarantee she is not deaf.
Back to reading, I read only two books I started the previous book and half I started in weekend.
Last Week I Read
Under the Whispering Door by T.J. Klune
This was beautiful book about death and like introduction says, “A love story between man who lived to help dead and a man who died and learned to live after death”. This is definitely one of the best books I read this year and I enjoyed buddy reading this with Toni. read full review HERE
Well Played (Well Met #2) by Jen DeLuca
This was okay. Not bad but not as good as its predecessor. My main issue with this book was like all readers said was it was too predictable from the very first chapter and also I didn’t feel chemistry between characters. I thought I liked Stacey in first book and even enjoyed reading more about her in this but she wasn’t exactly remarkable. What I loved most was Ren Faire setting and email and text conversations between Stacey and the guy. I’m still thinking will be spoiler to name the guy when any reader can see who Stacey was talking to from the first chapter? 🤔
My Sweet Girl by Amanda Jayatissa
Paloma thought her perfect life would begin once she was adopted and made it to America, but she’s about to find out that no matter how far you run, your past always catches up to you…
Ever since she was adopted from a Sri Lankan orphanage, Paloma has had the best of everything—schools, money, and parents so perfect that she fears she’ll never live up to them.
Now at thirty years old and recently cut off from her parents’ funds, she decides to sublet the second bedroom of her overpriced San Francisco apartment to Arun, who recently moved from India. Paloma has to admit, it feels good helping someone find their way in America—that is until Arun discovers Paloma’s darkest secret, one that could jeopardize her own fragile place in this country.
Before Paloma can pay Arun off, she finds him face down in a pool of blood. She flees the apartment but by the time the police arrive, there’s no body—and no evidence that Arun ever even existed in the first place.
Paloma is terrified this is all somehow tangled up in the desperate actions she took to escape Sri Lanka so many years ago. Did Paloma’s secret die with Arun or is she now in greater danger than ever before?
I’m in middle of the book and I hope to finish this by the end. This well written with suspense and amazing back story. I already have a theory what happened but I still cannot say for sure.
Next I’ll be Reading
Ever Rest by Roz Morris
Twenty years ago, Hugo and Ash were on top of the world. As the acclaimed rock band Ashbirds they were poised for superstardom. Then Ash went missing, lost in a mountaineering accident, and the lives of Hugo and everyone around him were changed forever. Irrepressible, infuriating, mesmerizing Ash left a hole they could never hope to fill.
Two decades on, Ash’s fiancée Elza is still struggling to move on, her private grief outshone by the glare of publicity. The loss of such a rock icon is a worldwide tragedy. Hugo is now a recluse in Nepal, shunning his old life. Robert, an ambitious session player, feels himself both blessed and cursed by his brief time with Ashbirds, unable to achieve recognition in his own right.
While the Ashbirds legend burns brighter than ever, Elza, Hugo and Robert are as stranded as if they were the ones lost in the ice. How far must they go to come back to life?
