What are you currently reading?

From Net Galley, a nonfiction book about the Amazon.  I read a bunch of books related to some research for a novel about the history of South America and the Amazon–gruesome and gorgeous reading, so when I saw this, I picked it up to continue my queries, as the novel hit a snag and sits in a drawer at this moment. My research made me curious for more.

I’m really hoping it’s more like Wade Davis and less like Lynn V. Andrews…update:  Nothing at all like Lynn V Andrews (Medicine Woman, et al), thank goodness, and a fascinating memoir so far…not like Wade Davis, either, though I love Wade Davis’s work.

 

The next in the Regency Mystery series by Tracy Grant…update: just got back to this…

What did you recently finish reading?

From the UK publisher Cheyne Walk, which published “The Way Back to Florence.” Review to come on this. I loved this book!

From Amazon: Set in the 1960s, the story of Jody, her little daughter Anna, and Zé, veers between an unhappy marriage in the North of England and a journey to find love amid the vivid landscapes of Portugal, while exposing the darkest shadows of Europe’s longest-running dictatorship. A Sea of Straw is a haunting debut that will linger in the memory.

From Net Galley, and it’s release isn’t until October 3, so watch this space for a release day review.  I love KJ Charles’ gay historical romances–she is the queen of the genre, as far as I’m concerned. I’ve read every story she’s written (Except for Last Stop Tokyo, which I really must get to!) This series, Sins of the City, revolves around an inheritance, secret births, and more than one murder.  The first novel is An Unseen Attraction and the second An Unnatural Vice.

What do you think you’ll read next?

 

I’ve got to finish the Tracy Grant in order to move on in the series.  I’ve got a list longer than I-don’t-know-what to check out.  From Net Galley, I’ve got this to look forward to:
