I typically read two books at a time - I listen to one audiobook and read either an eBook or the physical copy. I don't pay any heed to the Great Debate of which format is better and frankly, I think it's a bit silly for people to dictate how others enjoy books. Different formats are great for different things, whether it's an audiobook while you're washing the dog after he's rolled around in something disgusting or an eBook on dark mode so you can read in the dark like the vampire that you are.

Since I'm both a writer and a librarian, I'm very lucky to get lots of amazing ARCs (advanced reader copy) from Netgalley and Edelweiss. I write brief reviews for them, but likely won't be including them here because what I have to say is often uninspiring and I'm incredibly behind on writing out my thoughts.

I plan to write brief blog posts about them. I might return to the posts after I finish each book and update my thoughts, but my backlog is so long that this might be wishful thinking!

Current eBook (ARC from Netgalley):

The Last High by Daniel Kalla

I don't usually read medical thrillers, but I needed to branch out and I'm so glad I did. We had a tornado warning at 4:45 am last night and I zipped through 50 pages of this while huddled up with my husband, cat, and dog in our tiny half-bath powder room (do not recommend). There are tons of different POVs (points of view), which is something I'm thinking about incorporating into my current WIP (work in progress).

Current audiobook (Audible):

Dark Game by Rachel Lynch

This is book one of Rachel Lynch's DI Kelly Porter books. Narrators are one of the most important things to me for audiobooks (um, can you say gross mouth noises?) and so far I'm loving the narrator, Clare Kissane. Every once in a while I like a good British procedural and I find them oddly comforting despite the horrible things that happen in them.

Happy reading everyone!
