The Tommyknockers | Stephen King
post image

I don‘t have much of a preference. The almost single exception is King. I even went so far as to join the Stephen King Book Club in high school so I could replace my paperbacks with hardcovers! This is a random selection because everything is as scattered as my head at the moment but there are hardcovers for each of those mm copies kicking around somewhere in my mess of a house!

This was my #socksunday pic, but it works today too. It‘s freezing out! It snowed this morning and it‘s been yucky ever since. I‘m wrapping up reading this new collection by one of my fave horror authors while I try to keep warm. Ugh. I hate spring!

It‘s also #socksunday! I listened to this one on audio - read by Reichl herself - and I highly recommend it! Fair warning, it will make you hungry (there are recipes included 😜).

Agh! I‘m so excited! This latest season is based on the most recent Bosch book. Sadly Mickey Haller won‘t be making an appearance. Apparent it‘ll set up the next season, which will be based in part on Dark Sacred Night, minus Ballard I‘m assuming.

Not Quite Narwhal was one of the first books I decided we had to have for our collection when I found out I was pregnant. I‘ve been buying way too many kids books, but when I saw @jessie_sima had a new one out I just couldn‘t resist. I love reading with this little man!

My current read! Wes is two weeks old today and while it would seem like there would be plenty of down time for reading, I‘m finding it hard to get motivated to do much. So short stories it is, and short stories I don‘t have to think too much about are even better! (Pre birth pedicure is still going strong and my feet aren‘t swollen anymore!)

Happy #socksunday from me and my current insomnia read!

While hiking in Rocky Mtn National Park, Matt‘s wife slips and falls from a cliff. It‘s a tragic accident. Or is it? Turns out she‘s Matt‘s second wife. And Matt‘s first wife is dead as well.

This one‘s due out in Jan and she‘ll be promoting it in the Denver area! As for me, I‘m not actually hangry right now but I do have some swollen feet and I‘m pretty exhausted at 34 weeks.
