Recent Updates and Currently Reading | March 17

This past week was *sort of* spring break for my kids. I say *sort of* because they still had school projects all week. My kids are grossly overworked.

The Ladies of Horror Fiction team picked our next readalong for May with help from a community wide poll. Thank you to everyone who took time to vote. We will be reading Jennifer McMahon's The Winter People if you want to join us. We will be posting discussion questions each Sunday in May.

The Winter People Readalong

Posted Since My Last Update



Finished Reading


In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children #4) by Seanan McGuire The Wolf and the Watchman by Niklas Natt och Dag

In an Absent Dream (Wayward Children #4) by Seanan McGuire ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - So happy because I loved it... so sad because now I'm totally caught up on this series now.

The Wolf and the Watchman by Niklas Natt och Dag ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Your eyes are not deceiving you - two ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ reads. Stay tuned for some reviews!

The Widening Gyre by Michael R. Johnston ⭐⭐⭐★★ - This one was very middle of the road so you will probably see it pop up in a mini review at some point.

Currently Reading


Children of Time (Children of Time #1) by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Children of Time (Children of Time #1) by Adrian Tchaikovsky - I'm buddy reading this one on audio with Lilyn. So far I'm surprised by my love of the spiders in this book. Life is strange!

A Dangerous Collaboration - I just started this one. I'm anxious to see what this series is all about.

Recent Acquisitions



Many, many thanks to Word Horde for sending me A Hawk in the Woods by Carrie Laben and Memento Mori by Brian Hauser. I'm super excited to give these a review.

I'm also super excited to read Hanna Jameson's The Last! Thank you to Atria for sending me a review copy.

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

    1. I've been so bad about reviewing the readalong books. I think we do so much discussion that it feels complete before I have a chance to write up a review. I made a point to write a review for The Between, though. I'll try to do the same for The Winter People!

  3. I'll be interested to see what you think of The Winter People. I received it in a book subscription box and it's been sitting on my shelves for ages.

  5. When I was teaching, they always told us NOT to assign projects and whatnot over breaks and holidays, but my kid always had a ton of work. Boo! At least you had a break from other scheduled things?

    1. We did have a break from a few things, but my oldest son's projects were pretty huge. *cries*

  6. That sucks about spring break. I had a high school teacher who always assigned huge projects over Christmas. I spent those years at a computer instead of with my family. I thought it was unfair. Have a good week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

    1. Right? It's so pretty. It was a delightful read, too.

  10. I know right? Adrian Tchaikovsky deserves a medal for making me sympathize with his spiders. Giant spiders!

  11. Some great titles! I’ve enjoyed McMahons books.

    Have a great reading week, and please stop by

  12. I really enjoyed In An Absent Dream and yep, these books just don't come out soon enough for me. It's no secret Beneath the Sugar Sky was my least favorite but I felt this one bounced back to the level I was expecting. I've read The Night Sister by McMahon and really loved it but have never gotten around to this one. I have a copy somewhere so maybe I'll dig it out.
