Hi, homies! It’s Sunday March, 11, and I’m listening to a little Sade as I write this Current Reads post. I hope everyone is having a blessed weekend filled with great books. I’m reading four books at the moment, but two of them are poetry collections. Usually, I’m always reading a physical book, and an e-book simultaneously. This week I guess I’m a tad bit greedy. Does anyone else ever read more than one book at the same time? Let me know in the comments. Let’s get into these new books of mine.
Audition by Ryu Murakami- Audition is a Japanese thriller with a reputation for not afraid to go there. I’ve been wanting to read this novel for the longest! The story is about a widower who holds a fake audition to find a new wife. The woman he “casts” is seemingly perfect, but homegurl has some issues. I just started the book last night. So far I’m digging it.
Secrets We Told The City by J.R. Rogue and Kat Savage- I just finished a poetry collection by Ms. Rogue, and loved the hell out of it! Amazon suggested this collection by Ms. Rogue, and another new to me poet, Kat Savage. The theme for this collection is love in the big city.
I Hope This Reaches Her in Time by R.H. Sin- Amazon is always making me spend money! This was another suggestion from them. I’m always down to discover new poets. I have a feeling that I will really love this new find.
Then There Was You by Claire Contreras- I loves me a second chance romance! Lately I’ve been really into them. As soon as I read the synopsis for this one, I knew I had to buy it.
“Love and the right timing were two things I didn’t believe in. Love is about walking to the edge of the cliff and taking the leap together. Timing was never on our side. My first mistake was hooking up with my best friend. My second came years later, when we met again, and I fell for her. My third was letting her go, because I had to. Because a love like this wasn’t built to withstand the winds coming in our direction. Love and timing. I didn’t believe in either. Then there was you . . .”
Yass! I’m so here for all of this goodness!
Thanks for checking out my post! Let me know what you’re reading. Until next time…
