Hello! Welcome to It’s Monday What Are You Reading? The meme that we use to share what we read this past week and what our plans are for the upcoming week. It’s a great way to see what others are reading and add to your own To Be Read list. 😀 You never know where that next great read may come from!
A fairly good week here but a busy one outside of reading. I listened to audio when I could but did not finish a book this week. (The book I reviewed this week I read last month) Here is what I did post:
Finding Jake by Bryan Reardon (another awesome read!)
Necessary Lies by Diane Chamberlain (oh yeah she has done it again!)
Keep Your Friends Close by Paula Daly (creepy good!!!!)
Last Time We Said Good Bye by Cynthia Hand ( so good!)
This was actually an awesome week for reading as every review I posted this week was excellent. That rarely happens, in fact a few weeks ago I read several books in a row that were kind of “meh”. I started to think I was snooty and too judgey! Glad to see that pattern is broke! 🙂
So here is what I am putting in my head this week:
For My Ears
The moment a mysterious boy moves in next door to Sydney and Allyson Tate, both of their lives begin to change in ways that neither of them can ignore.
When Allyson meets Graham Copeland, she instantly feels like he’s a kindred spirit – shy and awkward like her, someone who has trouble making friends. It’s almost impossible to resist having a crush on him.
As usual, Sydney sees things differently than her sister. In her mind, Graham’s odd personality and secretive past scream psychopath, not sweetheart. Her gut is telling her to stay away from him and to protect a love-struck Allyson from her own naïveté. But despite her instincts, Sydney is surprised to realize that a part of her is drawn to Graham, too. And the more Sydney gets to know him, the more she realizes just how right – and wrong – she is about everything.
Dana Nolan was a promising young TV reporter until she was kidnapped by a notorious serial killer. A year has passed since she defeated her attacker, but Dana is still physically, emotionally, and psychologically scarred by her ordeal, with aftereffects including PTSD and memory loss. In an attempt to put herself back together after surviving the unthinkable, Dana returns to her hometown. But it doesn’t provide the comfort she expects: She struggles to recognize family and childhood friends and begins experiencing dark flashbacks – but she’s not sure if they’re truly memories or side effects of her brain injury.
Dana decides to use her investigative skills to piece together her past and learns of the event that made her become a reporter in the first place: the disappearance of her best friend Casey Grant, the summer after high school graduation. Looking at her past and the unsolved mystery through the dark filter of PTSD, old friends seem to be suspects, authority figures part of a cover-up. Dana begins to question everything she knows. What is real? What is imagined? Are we defined by what happens to us? And is the truth really something too terrible to be believed?
I am not putting any books down because I know what I need to finish. I need to get my book mojo back this week 🙂
