Books I Finished This Week:
This is the 9th book in the Pretty Little Liars series. A quick and fun read. It is now getting quite interesting to see how the author will twist the story to extend it. Most of the twists and turns are quite unbelievable, but it is fun to read nonetheless.
Since I am already a big fan of murder mysteries, this book appealed to me. The book alternates viewpoints between the daughter of the man accused of murder and the boyfriend of the murder victim. Emily, the daughter, knows in her heart that her father did not kill the girl, but her father was in the midst of a flashback, a symptom of PTSD. The mystery of what happened is further twisted by the fact that the boyfriend does not remember what happened that night. He has told police a lie and his memories might just be the key to the mystery. This was a very intriguing mystery and well-written. I absolutely would recommend it to grades 8 and up.
Books I am Currently Reading:
I am listening to Rotters by Daniel Kraus. I also started reading The Kingdom of Little Wounds by Susann Cokal.
I made the mistake of signing up for a free trial of Oyster while I still have hundreds of books that I own that I need to read. I am determined to not continue the subscription beyond this month so I will be focusing on reading books there for a while. I have quite the reading list going. I also borrowed the book Perdido Street Station by China Mieville from a friend so I will get to that as soon as possible to be able to return it in a timely manner.
What are you reading this week? I would love to hear from you in the comments! Have a great reading week!
