Recent Updates and Currently Reading | May 27

Schooooool's out for summer!

My kids are officially out for summer. No more homework, no more books, no more teacher's dirty looks! It's possible I'm more excited than my kids.

Posted Last Week


Book Review | The Boy on the Bridge by M.R. Carey

Currently Reading


Night Film by Marisha Pessl Gwendy's Button Box by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar

I'm currently reading Night Film by Marisha Pessl and Gwendy's Button Box by Stephen King and Richard Chizmar.

You will see Night Film in my updates again. I don't think it's a slow read, but it's going to take me forever. I'm hanging on to every detail, every picture, every article in the book.

I had planned to finish Gwendy's Button Box last night, but after a long day at the beach my bed felt too amazing.

Review Copies



In the Valley of the Sun by Andy Davidson - For readers of Joe Hill, Cormac McCarthy, and classic Anne Rice, a chilling tale of suspense and horror set deep in the Texas desert. OK, seriously. It sounds amazing, and it's getting fantastic reviews. This will totally be my next read.

Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero - 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! I've mentioned Meddling Kids before, but I just got a galley for it in the mail so I'm mentioning it again. I'm super excited about this one.

Current Distractions



I finished Orphan Black season 3. This season was kind of all over the place with the exception of Alison and Donny. How hilarious are they? The actress that plays *everyone* continues to blow my mind. Sarah, Alison, and Cosima in particular are all such solid, individual characters. Season 3 ends with the worm thing so I have no idea what is in store for season 4. Probably some pretty weird stuff.

So what about you? Let me know what you're reading (or watching) this week or leave me some links!

  4. I love Orphan Black and can't wait for the new episodes. I agree that actress is amazing. I like Allison and I LOVE Felix. It's even better when they are together. I just got my copy of Gwendy's last week. I had to order a hard cover since it's King. I'm planning on starting it in June as part of my COYER reading challenge. Yay for school being out. Bet you are excited. Hope you have a great week and maybe seeing you read Night Film will inspire me to pick up my copy.

    1. I love Felix, too. I'm so happy he and Alison are together a lot. They are such a pair!

      I should have bought a hard cover for Gwendy. :( I think I'm still going to. Haha.

      Night Film maybe isn't the best read for summer, but yes! when fall hits, you should pick up your copy.
