Sunday Salon: Indoor Reading Weather

Welcome to the Sunday Salon where bloggers share their reading each week. Visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer.
Also visit Mailbox Monday, and It's Monday, What Are You Reading? hosted by Book Date. 

The weather, an endless source of commentary, was very weird yesterday, no other word for it. 

The day started out sunny and relatively warm, then the temps dropped and snow in fat flakes fell, turning into sleet and then heavy rain. The sun came out again, briefly, and then the flaky snow came back. Soon after, little balls of white, like tiny hail stones started to salt the grass, then more heavy rain. It was something to behold, from behind the safety and warmth of a wide window! 

Only two new books last week, one for a tour, a suspense novel which I have just finished!
I Let You Go by Clare Mackintosh, to be released May 3, 2016 by Berkley. 
Jenna Gray moves to a ramshackle cottage on the remote Welsh coast, to escape the memory of the car accident that plays again and again in her mind and to heal from the loss of her child and the rest of her painful past. (publisher)
Imagine my surprise as I read on and found things are not what they seem and people are not who you think ....My review will be posted on May 10.
The Drafter by Kim Harrison, a sci-fi thriller in the Peri Reed Chronicles, paperback to be released April 19, 2016 by Pocket Books.
Detroit 2030. Double-crossed by the person she loved and betrayed by the covert government organization that trained her, Peri Reed is a renegade on the run. She is a drafter, possessed of a rare, invaluable skill for altering time, yet destined to forget both the history she changed and the history she rewrote. 

I am not a sci-fi fan, but this one sounds interesting nevertheless. 

What is new on your reading desk?

  2. We had weird weather here too. Sunny yesterday. Woke up to snow and ice this morning. Power was out too.

    New on my reading desk? Right now, reading The Man Who Smiled by Henning Mankell, a Kurt Wallander mystery. Waiting on hold for Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay.

  3. I'll be interested in your thoughts on The Drafter. I gave up on one of the later books in the Hollows series and haven't gone back. I was finding that the complexity of the plot overshadowed my love of the characters (in other words, I think they needed better editing). Maybe a new series will have new energy?

  5. We have had some odd whether here in Long Island also. It was snowing this morning and now it is sunny.

    I say any weather is good reading weather.


    The Drafter looks interesting and I am looking forward on reading your commentary on it.

  7. Yes, I cannot believe this weather! I woke up to snow and high winds. The day before yesterday it was almost 80 degrees.

    I Let You Go sounds great. I've seen it all over too, so I guess I'm writing it down for "the list". I wonder if I'll ever run out of paper before running out of books I want to read!

  12. I enjoyed The Drafter enough that I'm looking forward to the sequel and enough to buy a print copy after reading it first on my computer. Here is what I read last week. Happy reading!

  16. I am crazy about suspense novels, and I think I have I Let You Go in my queue. I definitely need something "lighter" and faced pace after these fascinating, but heavy, Man Booker International Prize long list I've been enmeshed with.

  17. I really like "I Let You Go" by Clare Mackintosh. Not too crazy about the second book. Enjoyed looking at both books in your mailbox.
