Two for Tuesday :: August 27, 2019

Boy, oh boy, I cannot get back on track! I’ve been bringing some old reviews over but hoping I can get back into bringing you regular new content soon! Today, though, is my favorite day of the week: TUESDAY!

I’ve loved Tuesdays for years now. It’s my easiest day to take off work so my husband and I have done lots of special things on Tuesdays — like last week where we went to the Frist Art Museum in Nashville and were mesmerized by the art of Frida Kahlo and some great surrealism pieces.

Blogwise, I also love Tuesdays. This is the day when I do a weekly post called Two for Tuesday, where I use Random Number Generator to pick two numbers that coincide with two books off of my Want to Read list on Goodreads and decide if I want to keep them or not.

First up this week, I have People Who Eat Darkness by Richard Lloyd Parry, a true crime book I’ve heard lots of good things about. I grabbed this book on a great Kindle deal sometime last year, so I think I’ll keep it around for now.

Next up, another nonfiction book, My Story by Elizabeth Smart. I had to think long and hard about this one. Smart’s is a story I’ve read up on a lot but never read it from her perspective. However, reviews of this make me not want to pick it up. I feel weird saying that — like I’m saying her words/story don’t matter, but I obviously respect her and her story greatly. I am just not sure this book is for me.

The random number generator picked some interesting choices this week! I wonder what it will give me next week….

Two for Tuesday: July 16, 2019

It’s Tuesday, it’s Tuesday!

In case you are new, I do a weekly post called Two for Tuesday, where I use Random Number Generator to pick two numbers that coincide with two books off of my Want to Read list on Goodreads and decide if I want to keep them or not.

Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel

This is a book that has been on my list for a long time but I still haven’t gotten around to reading. It’s one that I see and I think to myself, I should read that. But then I never do.

When this first came up from the Random Number Generator game, I figured I’d be keeping it. But the longer I sit here, staring at the screen, trying to decide what I want to do, I’m going to pass on this one.

It’s another one that’s on my Kindle. So, maybe in the future, I’ll change my mind. But, as of now, this one I’m going to pass on.

What the Dead Know by Laura Lippman

I’ve not read a lot of Laura Lippman. Actually, I’ve just checked and I’ve only read one book from her, Wilde Lake, which I gave 3 stars but have fond memories of really enjoying it. I see a lot of Lippman when browsing used books stores and am always intrigued with trying more books from her.

Getting these two together was interesting. I don’t have strong opinions on either of them, but I do know that I want to read more from this author, so I will be keeping this one to try in the future.

I’m not sure I’ve made the right choices this week…. What do you think?
