I hope everyone had a happy holiday season, no matter what you celebrate, and that you get a few more days to celebrate heading into the New Year. I am back to work tomorrow, but hope to have some extra time this week to end this year on somewhat of a high note. I was able to get some decent reading in this week, and I focused on mostly Advanced Reader’s Copies that had for early 2021. For those coming out in January, I will post full reviews, closer to the release date.
What Could Be Saved by Liese O’Halloran Schwartz– This was an interesting story told from the perspective of a woman who’s brother went missing when he was just 8, who suddenly makes contact now in his 50’s . This has elements of a dysfunctional family book which I love. I really enjoyed this one a lot and think this one is going to be talked about a lot.
The Mystery of Mrs. Christie by Marie Benedict– This is a historical fiction account of the infamous 10 days that Agatha Christie went missing. Benedict adds to the intrigue of this story and tries to back it up with some context. It was a very fun read. Great for fans of Christie and her own mystery of what happened.
The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins – A fun retelling of Jane Eyre set in present day Alabama. Hawkins really tried to keep the essence of the original work and I really felt that throughout. This version felt like it had some good mystery elements to it. If you love Jane Eyre, this will be a must read.
What Happens in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand – I love Elin Hilderbrand so much, however this book was a little bit slow. This is a continuation in a series, and it just not have the sparkle I was looking for. Don’t get me wrong I will be reading the third book in this series, but this one was just a little lackluster, but that just seems to happen a lot to 2nd books in trilogies.
Hope you had a great week reading, feel free to share any great books you read in the comments. Until next week…..
