Read-a-Thon Lunch Break Update

Okay! I finished two of my four Read-a-Thon books and I'm looking for something new to start once I've finished at least one more.

Done are:
The Cat's Table, by Michael Ondaatje. Liked, didn't love.  A book to admire for me, not one to swoon over. Full review on Tuesday.

Nightmare Alley, by William Lindsay Gresham. Not to put too fine a point on it but OH MY GOD I LOVED THIS BOOK. It's a noir thriller perfect perfect perfect for your Halloween reading pleasure. It's got murder, lust, lies, and the carnival. What more can you ask for?

Some things I'm choosing from for my next read:

Tiny Sunbirds, Far Away, from Christie Watson and Other Press.

Vestments, by John Reiminger, about a Catholic priest and a crisis of faith.

The Meaning of Night, by Michael Cox, a Victorian murder mystery. More Halloweeny fun?

The Moonflower Vine, by Jetta Carelton, a recovered classic from the Depression era.

You tell me what to read next & I'll do what you say! Right now? I'm throwing on some jeans and a hoodie and getting me a hamburger.
