BOOKS I’M CURRENTLY READING #6 📚☕️
The theme for my reading life this week seems to unintentionally be queer librarians and rivalling chefs, and I’m not mad about that. I hope you enjoy this next instalment of currently reading!
BOOKS I’M CURRENTLY READING #5 📚☕️
Hello book lovers! I’m back with another currently reading post inspired the weekly WWW meme that Taking on a World of Words hosts. I’m a serial TBR maker because they help me stay on track with my reading goals so much, as well as helping me figure out what books I have access too from either the library or kindle unlimited that month!
ARC REVIEW: WAITING FOR YOU BY ELLE SPENCER
Have you ever met someone and felt like you’ve known them in a thousand different lifetimes?
Lindsay Hall was a high school senior when she and her friend Patty discovered peach schnapps, listened to a past-life hypnosis CD, and got an up-close look at who she once was. And who she used to love. The knowledge of her past life has always haunted Lindsay. As her ex-husband is happy to point out, it’s made her a pretty crappy partner, too. Even her teenage daughter has politely suggested that she “get the eff over it.” Except she didn’t say eff.
Ren Christopher just wants a quick break before she starts a new job in London. She’s just extracted herself from a not-brief-enough, drama-filled relationship. A few weeks relaxing, drinking too much wine, and hanging with her old college friend Patty is just what the doctor ordered. No pressure, no expectations, and absolutely no drama.

BOOK REVIEW: INTO THE DROWNING DEEP BY MIRA GRANT
“The seas did not forgive, and they did not welcome their wayward children home.”
Seven years ago, the Atargatis set off on a voyage to the Mariana Trench to film a “mockumentary” bringing to life ancient sea creatures of legend. It was lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a maritime tragedy.
Now, a new crew has been assembled. But this time they’re not out to entertain. Some seek to validate their life’s work. Some seek the greatest hunt of all. Some seek the truth. But for the ambitious young scientist Victoria Stewart this is a voyage to uncover the fate of the sister she lost.
Whatever the truth may be, it will only be found below the waves. But the secrets of the deep come with a price.
Into the Drowning Deep is one of the most intricately told horror stories I’ve ever read. It can be aptly described as Jurassic Park, but with Mermaids. Just substitute the fictional Isla Nublar for the Mariana Trench, mountainous lush rainforests for the vast depths of our oceans, and cloned dinosaurs for an intelligent race of killer mermaids – and Voilà, you have my new favourite slow burn horror story.
