So I have slowly started reading again after the pandemic and boy has it been amazing!

The kind folk over at St Martin’s press sent me a few review copies which I enjoyed immensely and once I was done, I went straight to my bookshelf and picked out my next reads. Here are the books that are currently on my TBR list.

  1. Sparks Fly by Helena Hunting: This is the last book that I read and I loved so very much. This is a sweet best-friends-to-lovers book and while usually I detest this trope, this book does it beautifully.
  2. A Reckless Match by Kate Bateman: Anything by Kate Bateman is a winner in my books. I’m currently reading this and it is such a thrill.
  3. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi- I’m listening to the audiobook of this and honestly it really isn’t doing much for me. I think I might switch to ebook or paperback since I knew I loved the book when I picked it up on a whim. It was supposed to be a read just to pass time but it really sucked me in.

What are you currently reading? Do you have any recommendations for books that helped you out of a pandemic slump? I’d love to know below.

  1. A book I can’t recommend enough (and I wish I could read again for the first time) is Japanese Tales if Mystery and Imagination, which is a collection of translated works by Edogawa Rampo. The short stories within it (which total to 9) average around 20 pages each. Most feature a twist that despite their darkness have made me chuckle or flat out laugh.

    I sought out that book as an escape from another book thats been sitting in my tbr since the summer. Say Nothing by Patrick R. Keefe is a heavy piece. Before this week, I probably cracked about 100 pages into it before I had to return it to my library and decided against taking it out again until I was ready to read it again. The book is a sort of anthology covering the period called the Troubles in Northern Ireland. As an American, I went in blind to what I thought was a religious conflict but really was something closer to a colonial struggle. I’ve decided to use Libby, a library app, to listen to the audio book version. It’s going well and still a great experience, I’d recommend it if you have the time.
