Recent Updates and Currently Reading | February 11

My youngest son is four years old and last night was only the third night he has been away from home. It's so weird having no kids in the house, but they are all at my mom's. It's Saturday morning, and I'm having chocolate cake and ginger ale for breakfast because I can.

Posted Last Week


(I highly recommend both of these books!)


Books Read Last Week




Beautiful Sorrows by Mercedes M. Yardley

Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty

Review Copies



Visions of the Mutant Rain Forest by Robert Frazier, Bruce Boston - For over 20 years Robert Frazier and Bruce Boston have been writing stories and poems set in the Mutant Rain Forest. Most of these stories/poems have appeared in magazines and anthologies but two stories and five poems are original to this collection. "In the mutant rain forest it’s adapt or be redacted." I'm excited to explore these stories as they will all be new to me.

Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero - I just discovered Meddling Kids this past week, but it has jumped to one of my most anticipated reads of this year. I'm going to let this blurb right here speak for itself "The surviving members of a forgotten teenage detective club (and their dog) must reunite as broken adults to finally solve the terrifying case that ruined them all and sent the wrong man to prison. Scooby Doo and the gang never had to do this!"

What about you? What are you reading this week? Be sure to let me know in the comments or leave me a link!

  2. I read a Yardley book a few years back called Nameless(I think?). She is someone I should check back with, I recall enjoying it. And Six Wakes is getting great reviews.

  9. Cake and ginger ale for breakfast sounds like a good idea!

    And Meddling Kids - what what!! I need to read it. Scooby Doo was my favorite growing up, and I still love to tune in to the old cartoons when I can find them. :)

  11. Chocolate cake for breakfast is only second to cold pizza for me. Now I want both. Ha ha. I hemmed and hawed about requesting Meddling Kids and then decided not to because I have been trying to cut down on ARCs. I will be looking out for your review because the premise is really intriguing. Have a wonderful week. :)

  15. I love cake for breakfast! It's one of the best things about being an adult, lol. Meddling Kids sounds like it could be really good! I loved Scooby Doo as a kid, and I always wondered what would happen if they got it wrong.
    I hope you have a great week!

  17. Okay, I would totally read Meddling Kids! Sounds like fun - we quote that classic line from the Scooby Doo cartoon all the time: "would have gotten away with it too, if it hadn't been for you meddling kids!" LOL
