Friday/Holiday Reads - May 24, 2018

I'll Be Gone in the Dark: One Woman's Obsessive Search for the Golden State Killer - Michelle McNamara, Patton Oswalt, Gillian Flynn Harmony Cabins (Finding Home Series Book 2) - Regina Hart The Sleepwalkers: How Europe Went to War in 1914 - Christopher Clark He's So Fine - Jill Shalvis

I have a four day weekend, courtesy of a Family Day (military's way of adding days to holiday weekends so to give servicemembers time off) and Memorial Day. I plan on doing an extra shift at the library, then take the kids to our local pool tomorrow. Saturday through Monday I am just chilling out at home, reading, playing more Stardew Valley, and cross stitching. 

 

I am halfway through I'll Be Gone and I am loving it despite the non-linear storytelling, which is surprising that I can still follow what is going on. The crimes around the Sacramento area weirds me out a little, as we were stationed at Beale for five years and know the areas pretty well - in addition to my husband being a native of Sac. For a true crime book, it is fairly light on graphic descriptions of the crime scenes....or I have read too many In Death books to be affected by descriptions of said scenes.

 

To give myself a break from rape and murder, I am looking at putting more time into Harmony Cabins and get that completed by Monday and start He's So Fine. I am also trying to put in some time to The Sleepwalkers, but it is great at combatting my seasonal insomnia.

 

Have a safe Memorial Day weekend to my fellow Americans and happy Bank Holiday to my UK peeps.
