A BOOKISH WEDNESDAY…

Today I’m participating in WWW Wednesdays, at Taking on a World of Words Here’s how it works:

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next, and/or what are you eagerly awaiting?

CURRENTLY READING:

House of Correction, by Nicci French

In this heart-pounding standalone thriller from bestselling author Nicci French, a woman accused of murder attempts to solve her own case from the confines of prison—but as she unravels the truth, everything is called into question, including her own certainty that she is innocent.

BOOKS READ SINCE LAST POST OF 10/27/20:

You Should Have Known (The Undoing), by Jean Hanff Korelitz

The Silent Wife, by Karin Slaughter

***

EAGERLY ANTICIPATING:  Dark Roads, by Chevy Stevens, will be released on August 3, 2021

Synopsis:  For decades, people have been warned about the Cold Creek Highway. Hitchhikers have vanished along it over the years, and women have been known to have their cars break down… and never be seen again. When Hailey McBride decides to run away from an unbearable living situation, she thinks that her outdoor skills will help her disappear into the Cold Creek wilderness, and she counts on people thinking that she was the victim of the killer.

One year later, Beth Chevalier arrives in Cold Creek to attend a memorial for the victims of the highway, but it might as well be one week for the amount of pain that Beth is still dealing with after her sister, Amber, was murdered the previous summer. Beth has quit university, is lying to her parents, and popping pills like Tic Tacs. Maybe this will finally bring her peace.

When she gets a job at a local diner where Amber once worked, she connects with people who knew her sister. Beth wants to find who killed her sister and put her own life back together, but as she gets closer to the truth, she learns that there is more than one person lying in Cold Creek.

  1. I read a Karin Slaughter novel a couple years ago — I can’t recall the title but it was about one of Atlanta’s first policewomen — and I could only read it in public. In brightly lit places with lots of people around. It was that brutal. Involving, but really cruel. So I’m tempted to reach for The Silent Wife, but also not. I find books are affecting me more these days … (PS That’s one of the things I really appreciated about Confessions on the 7:45; it wasn’t graphic, just twisty!)

  2. House of Corrections sounds so good. I hope you are enjoying it. I haven’t read a Karin Slaughter in ages. I got lost somewhere on the Will Trent Series. Glad you enjoyed The Silent Wife. Have a fab weekend. Happy reading.
