Welcome to this week’s Book Talk!
My reading week got off to a slow start, but I still managed to read three books
Unladylike Lessons in Love by Amita Murray: 4.5 stars. Read my review HERE.
Sins of the Tribe by Mark A. Salter: 4.5 stars. While I am not a college football fan, I was drawn in by the novel’s summary. Two brothers go off to college to play for the Bastille University Tribe football team. Wally is super smart but not exactly a star player. However, his brother Henry is an incredibly gifted field goal kicker who will only kick if Wally holds the ball for him. So they are sort of a package deal. At first, playing for the team is literally a dream come true. The nightmare begins when the players are seen as a commodity rather than people and crowd mentality (aka triblism) takes over. An absolutely heartbreaking novel that is eye-opening and ultimately hopeful.
The Last to Vanish by Megan Miranda: 4.5 stars. Cutter’s Pass is a mountain town with access to the Appalachian trail. The town is also known for unexplained disappearances that began with four fraternity brothers who vanished twenty-five years earlier. Two women have also gone missing over the years and recently, so has journalist Landon West. His brother, Trey, has arrived in town to see if he can figure out what happened to Landon. He stays at the same hotel where manager Abby Lovell has worked the last ten years. Trey’s arrival becomes the catalyst for Abby to try to find out the truth about the people who have gone missing. But is she prepared for the answers she is going to find? I highly recommend this OUTSTANDING mystery that left me guessing whodunit and why right up until the twist-filled conclusion!

i have a few books going at the same time. On audio, I listened to N. R. Walker’s To the Moon and Back. The book I listen to on lunchtime walks is non-fiction, The Address Book: What Street Addresses Reveal About Identity, Race, Wealth, and Power by Dierdre Mask. In ebook, Mrs. Mix Up by Candace Harper as by bedtime reading.
I’m eager to see what you think about To the Moon and Back and The Address Book: What Street Addresses Reveal About Identity, Race, Wealth, and Power.
I’ll check out Mrs. Mix Up!
And I don’t know how you juggle 3 books at once!
