Another Friday, another 27 lives lost to terrorism (Mali hotel hostage situation). Thanksgiving is now less than a week away and I don't have the energy to plan a damn thing about it. And on those notes, here is my weekend reading:
1. Finishing American Pain: How a Young Felon and His Ring of Doctors Unleashed America's Deadliest Drug Epidemic by John Temple. (Library Loan via Over Drive app)
Freaking eye-opening, heart breaking, and page turning. Probably going to be a 4-5 star read.
2. Start Devoted in Death (...In Death #41) by J.D. Robb.
Lt Dallas takes on a future Bonnie and Clyde "love story." (Library Loan)
3. Plenty of Time When We Get Home (Love and Recovery in the Aftermath of War) by Kayla Williams. (Library Loan)
Kayla and her husband met in Iraq, but didn't start their relationship until they were back in the US and he was undergoing treatment for PTSD and shrapnel in his brain/skull. This is Williams' follow up to her OIF memoir I Love My Rifle More Than You, which I hope to get via ILL from the library by the end of the year.
Happy reading and stay safe everyone.
