    Yes, loved them all so much I made it my day job (thanks, library school).

    I am currently reading "My Sister, the Serial Killer" by Oyinkan Braithwaite. It's a wonderful debut novel by a breakout author, excited to read whatever else she writes.

    Anyway, I try to read a new book a week but I am not always successful. If anyone has any good nonfiction titles to recommend, please post, I love adding titles to my 'to do' list

    Ok, I managed my goal this week, yay me.

    Started 'Amnesty' by Aravind Adiga this morning - so far, so good.

    @gjniev your range in books is pretty crazy! Usually I'll go on genre benders where I'm stuck on murder mysteries or stories of triumph. You seem to just jump everywhere, I love it!

    I'm currently reading Defending Jacob and the last book that I read was The Institute

    @Arcaria oh, I love a good crime drama. I'm curious about the adaption of that but I don't have Apple TV to watch it Have you read The Silent Patient, by any chance?
    & do you like true crime titles as well? Some of those get quite heavy, so I can't read too many of those back to back.

    I like going between literary fiction and nonfiction, and of course, popular titles of both.

    Wow, I met my goal this week *pats self on back*
    (Highly recommend 'Asylum' - well constructed, hard not to fall down the rabbit hole with the protagonist, great stuff)

    On to: 'I Know You Know Who I Am' by Peter Kispert
    I don't usually read short story collections (Flannery O'Connor & Michael Cunningham ruined them all for me tbh) but this looks promising.

    I still want to know what everyone is reading this week

    The Kispert collection was good, not great. Compelling stories but I really want to see him write a full novel. Will be waiting

    Now, this week: 'Apeirogon' by Colum McCann
    Curious about this one and ready to have my heart broken.

    omg we have a Books section!!

    You guys are definitely more bookish than me, but the last favorite book I read was Sadie by Courtney Summers. It's a fictional "true crime" narrative that alternates between the missing girl and the podcast that tries to find her (kind of like Serial)

    Who doesn't like books, right? They saved me.
    There isn't a day that I don't read. Sadly, on busy days, I can only grasp a chapter of a manga, tho.
    I am currently reading Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.

    Wrote down some of the books you are reading to read them later. Thank you
