My previous read was The Night Stalker by Robert Bryndza: the second book in the mystery series featuring DCI Erika Foster. I enjoyed the novel and appreciated, especially, the unusual murder story and the sassy, no-nonsense detective. This was the third novel I had read by this author and he is now definitely on my authors-to-read list.
I am currently reading The Lightness of Hands by Jeff Garvin. This novel is a YA contemporary story that features the life of travelling magicians. The important part of this novel is that it centres on mental health issues and self-harm. It is an important story to be out there – though I do find it a little predictable.
At the moment I am binge watching Chinese marshal arts films on Netflix. I love watching the fight scenes as I find the choreography and strength of the fighters beautiful. I am definitely in the right frame of mind to read the autobiography Bruce Lee by Mathew Polly. My husband (who is a huge Bruce Lee fan) has read this title and enjoyed it and have decided to spend time with this book. I hope I will enjoy it as much as he did.
During the month of June I plan to read a few more of the books that have been on my shelf for over a year. With both the library and the book stores closed, I have been slowly whittling down the books on my TBR shelf.
In addition to these, my plan is to finish reading the Throne of Glass Series by Sarah J Maas which I began in May. If I have time to read more, I will pick up a novel as dictated by my mood. June is the month for report cards so I will see how many titles I am able to enjoy.
When choosing my To Be Read stack for this month, I was not too ambitious despite my knowledge that I will be staying at home until the end of the month. Although I will be home, I will be working on creating tasks for my students through my online classroom.
I have tried to choose a mix of genres and have included some middle grade stories, fantasy novels, and some contemporary fiction. There are a number of titles here that I am quite excited to read.
My current library stack definitely reflects my mood for light, romantic reads. Two are of authors I have previously enjoyed (Jude Devereaux and Meg Cabot), one is recommended on Instagram (The Wedding Party) and the other (25 Days of Christmas) reflects my enjoyment of Christmas stories at this time of year.
I am currently partway through the books I have borrowed from the library. I am hoping that this week some more of my holds will come through.
