Picture this: it’s a cold Saturday night. You’re binge watching Nikocado Avocado and Julia from Delish trying all the popular menu items at Olive Garden. It makes you feel frumpy and lonely, so you decide to do something productive and write a blog post.
And honestly that’s how I ended up here, writing about all my current reads this weekend!
Triptych is the first book in a 10 book murder mystery series by Karin Slaughter. I honestly wasn’t sure whether I wanted to commit to a 10 book series (that is still ongoing). But after reading this book, I’m sold. Will Trent is a cinnamon bun and deserves our protection at all costs. Although there was a lot of slurs in here that made me cringe. But other than that this 2006 release holds up with a lot of Karin’s more recent releases.
I’m only a chapter into this but so far it does slightly remind me of The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren. I just need the shipwrecking to happen and for the survival aspects to kick in because I love that.
I’m really enjoying listening to this instalment on my daily walks. Its been a long time since I watched the show, but I forgot some of the gut punching moments that happened around this period of the show/books. “Hope blew out like a candle in the storm.” If you know, you know: 👰🏻🗡💔
I’m sensing that after my current reads, I want a hard hitting angsty romance. I know that this book will deliver that, given it’s not just a romance but also focuses on grief.
I can’t lie, writing this post made me feel marginally more productive for approximately 30 minutes. But honestly I’m just going to resume my regular nighttime routine and watch YouTube.
