Current Reads #19

It’s once again time to share my Current Reads. I still can’t believe that it’s August. 2017 just refuses to slow down, right? Let’s get started.

evelynThe Seven Husbands Of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid- I’ve been wanting to read this novel for the longest. Once I heard about it I knew eventually I would own this book. The cover alone is fucking stunning! I’ve always been a fan of old-school Hollywood; the actors/actresses, the style, Etc. Evelyn Hugo is a legendary actress who is ready to share her life story with the world. She decides that Monique Grant- a journalist who is really having a rough season of life, will be the one to pen her biography.

“Summoned to Evelyn’s Upper East Side apartment, Monique listens as Evelyn unfurls her story: from making her way to Los Angeles in the 1950s to her decision to leave show business in the late 80s, and, of course, the seven husbands along the way. As Evelyn’s life unfolds—revealing a ruthless ambition, an unexpected friendship, and a great forbidden love—Monique begins to feel a very a real connection to the actress. But as Evelyn’s story catches up with the present, it becomes clear that her life intersects with Monique’s own in tragic and irreversible ways.”

Yasssssss!

Here are the latest batch of books that I’m currently reading. I’m excited to read both of them, but then again I always say that. Lol. #BookJunkie

after dark After Dark by Haruki Murakami- Mr. Murakami is a beloved and celebrated author that I’m finally trying to get into. After Dark according to Goodreads is a story that  “moves from mesmerizing drama to metaphysical speculation, interweaving time and space as well as memory and perspective into a seamless exploration of human agency—the interplay between self-expression and empathy, between the power of observation and the scope of compassion and love. Murakami’s trademark humor, psychological insight, and grasp of spirit and morality are here distilled with an extraordinary, harmonious mastery.” Can’t wait to get started tonight!

reap Reap: The Irish Mob Chronicles #2 by Kaye Blue- Ms. Blue is the reigning queen of suspenseful romance with mob elements, and I love her! This second entry into the Irish Mob Chronicles features two individuals who basically can’t stand each other. I know damn well that will change real quick like. All the great romances start with characters who are disgusted by the other.  I can’t wait to lose myself in this new novel.

Cheers, homies!

ghost Ghostface Killer by M. Never- I saw an ad for this novel on Facebook. This is a dark romance involving a hit woman. I read the prologue this morning and was really impressed. I have a gut feeling that this will be an awesome read.

jack Peaceable Kingdom by Jack Ketchum- I purchased this collection of short stories this weekend. I’ve always wanted to read something by Mr. Ketchum. If the first story is any indication, then I’m in for a dope read.

Current Reads #12

I’m thrilled to be sharing the latest batch of books that I’m currently reading. As I’ve said in previous posts, 2017 is the year for dopetastic books.

walk Walk the Line: Kings of Chaos Book 5 by Shyla Colt- I’ve read several books by this author lately, and this is the current release. I’ve been hyped to read this for weeks. The damn cover is everything! From the synopsis this is a novel about two people with traumatic pasts, who form an intense bond, and make a deep love connection.

forever Forever is the Worst Long Time by Camille Pagan- I’m not even going to lie, the cover of this book was why I decided to pick this up. I’m hoping that the story is just as vibrant, and enthralling as the cover. Goodreads says this is “a wry, heartfelt exploration of love and loss”. Sounds just right for me!

Cheers, homies!

Current Reads #8

Here are my Current Reads for the week of March 5, 2017.

bikeThe Biker’s Librarian by Shyla Colt- This is an Interracial Romance novel involving the classic “good girl”, and a biker she met during a night out. I’ve read the work of Ms. Colt before, and I enjoyed everything. I already know this novel will be loaded with insane chemistry, and hot as hell sex scenes that will melt the words right off the pages.

asleep Asleep by Banana Yoshimoto- Ms. Yoshimoto’s work was suggested by someone I watch on YouTube. She writes in the magical realism/surrealism, and contemporary genres. Asleep is a short story collection revolving around sleep. Sounds simple though I’m guessing it’s anything but.

Cheers, homies!
