Hello friends! I hope you guys are all safe and healthy. And I hope you guys have a good reading week, unlike me.
I am contemplating if I should still do a Recent Reads post because not much has changed since my post last week. I’ve been reading the same book since then and I haven’t finish ANY BOOK for the whole week. So this is probably the worst reading week of my life for this year. And I think it’s because of the books that I am currently reading. And I could not wait to finish all these books. I am really struggling here and the books, the characters and the plots are not helping, AT ALL.
So before I go on a full ranting mode, let’s get into the books that I am still currently reading…

“Life is a bleak place … Sometimes you have to learn how to shoot first.”
I have a curse
I have a gift
I am a monster
I’m more than human
My touch is lethal
My touch is power
I am their weapon
I will fight back
Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.
The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.
The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.
Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

“…but if years of reading true-crime books and watching Dateline have taught me anything, it’s this: it’s always the boyfriend.”
Echo Ridge is small-town America. Ellery’s never been there, but she’s heard all about it. Her aunt went missing there at age seventeen. And only five years ago, a homecoming queen put the town on the map when she was killed. Now Ellery has to move there to live with a grandmother she barely knows.
The town is picture-perfect, but it’s hiding secrets. And before school even begins for Ellery, someone’s declared open season on homecoming, promising to make it as dangerous as it was five years ago. Then, almost as if to prove it, another girl goes missing.
Ellery knows all about secrets. Her mother has them; her grandmother does too. And the longer she’s in Echo Ridge, the clearer it becomes that everyone there is hiding something. The thing is, secrets are dangerous–and most people aren’t good at keeping them. Which is why in Echo Ridge, it’s safest to keep your secrets to yourself.

Another week has gone by. And the past week feels like the most stressful and the longest week of my life. Our government is finally taking COVID-19 quite seriously. A lot of locals are slowly getting confined and are testing positive with the virus. And so, like every country that has a growing number of confirmed cases, we are on a quarantine.
It might look like an idealistic set-up for an introvert like me. I wouldn’t mind staying at home and just reading. I can work from home. But in reality, it is stressful. It’s like a looming presence at the back of your mind. You would constantly think and worry. And I realize that I am a little disoriented in the past week. I can’t focus, I can’t even sleep properly. And even though there are a lot of things going on, I still managed to finish some books.
And I think I have talked enough. So let’s get into the books.

You probably wouldn’t care about this, AT ALL. But lately, I found myself sticking at a certain schedule. I am one of those person who rarely made plans because I am not good at sticking with it. However, I would not say no to taking advantage of this organized version of myself.
I found myself posting anything under the sun with my blogs. But now I decided to have a schedule of posting day. Will start this posting schedule next week because I’m still trying to figure out a schedule for this week. So here is my weekly schedule for posting blogs…

When long-buried secrets come back to the surface…
The bones of seven young girls, picked clean and carefully preserved, discovered years ago… that’s all Sergeant Ryan DeMarco knows about the unsolved crime he has unwittingly been roped into investigating during what is supposed to be a healing road trip with his new love, Jayme.
DeMarco is still reeling from the case that led to death of his best friend months ago and wants nothing more than to lay low. Unfortunately, the small southern town of Jayme’s idyllic youth is not exactly a place that lets strangers go unnoticed–especially strangers who have a history of solving violent crimes. And if there’s anything DeMarco knows, it’s that a killer always leaves clues behind, just waiting for the right person to come along and put all the pieces together…
Walking the Bones is a story about things buried–memories, regrets, secrets, and bodies. Acclaimed author Randall Silvis delivers another heart-stopping investigation as DeMarco finds himself once again drawn into a case that will demand more of himself than he may be willing to give.

Without further ado, let’s talk about the books that I have read this week and what I am currently reading.
