Welcome back to Lamon Reviews. Today I want to do an update what I’m reading, what I’ve finished, and what next to be read! Trying to keep up with all the books I want to read has been challenging.
Since I have numerous audiobooks on my Overdrive account, finding the next work for me will not be hard. Luckily, I have been reading at a great pace with time for reflection before I move on to the next one on my list. I know this will help me write better reviews and blog posts.
📚What I Recently Finished📚
From my Kindle, I recently finished Under Color Of Law by Aaron Phillip Clark. I was able to get a copy of this one from Amazon First Reads. A great perk for prime members that love books.
I enjoyed reading Under Color Of Law, but it took me a while longer than I thought it would. I have been reading it for about three weeks.
Last month there was an interesting author interview with Aaron Phillip Clark over on The Nerd Daily website. You can check it out here!
I finished the audiobook Split Tooth by Tanya Tagaq yesterday. This book was a wonderful surprise. Narrated by the author, her poetic prose is complemented by the unique sounds of her Inuk Throat Singing. It took me two chapters to realize that each one would be introduced with a song.
I felt a range of emotions while listening to Split Tooth. I laughed, I was uncomfortable, and by the end I cried. This will be one of my unforgettable book reads and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in an powerfully emotional read.
⚜What I am Currently Reading⚜
Today I started White Magic by Elissa Washuta. I do usually read the book blurb before I gravitate towards a new book, but I was surprised by the first three chapters. White Magic is a book of essays by the author. (For whatever reason I thought it was a fictional novel.)
Furthermore, Elissa Washuta is a native american author, so I can happily count this towards reading native readers for the month of November. Just from the first few chapters of White Magic, I know I want to read her previous work, My Body Is A Book Of Rules from 2014.
📖What Is Next On My List!📖
Next up I have⚜ I Just Haven’t Met You Yet by Sophie Cousens⚜ My Heart is a Chainsaw by Stephen Graham Jones, and my second pick for November Amazon First Reads⚜ The Last Rose Of Shanghai by Weina Dai Randel.
Stephen Graham Jones also wrote The Only Good Indians and I loved that work, so I am extremely excited for My Heart Is A Chainsaw. Also he is a native author!
There are a few books that I want to add to my TBR like The Southern Book Clubs Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix. About a month ago I read Horrorstör and just loved it! I like the writing style, so I am looking forward to this one as well.
I have heard of this book before, but I think my clencher was seeing it in one of the blog posts from a blogger I read weekly, Elaine Howlin. I follow about five bloggers and I get a lot of reading suggestions from those blogs.
I hope you enjoyed todays post. Let me know what you are reading. Have you finished a book you think I should try? Let me know in the comments below.
And As Always…
Go forth, dear readers, support your favorite indie authors and encourage reading and literacy.
