Happy Sunday! I think I’m out of my isolation reading slump. I’ve gotten back into the habit of reading before signing on to work and before bed. Not much else to update on outside of reading and working from home. Any one do any fun activities inside?

Anyone else in a reading slump? I find I got most of my reading done while commuting to and from work each day and with the self isolation and working from home my reading came to a complete stop.

Happy Sunday! It’s Sunday, right? The days of the week are blending together. I took about three weeks off from blogging this month. The only posts that were published were ones that had already been written and scheduled. I think the lack of blogging came from my lack of reading. I’ve been work from home now for just over three weeks and I think the lack of commuting put a damper on my reading. This weekend I gave myself a goal of reading a book and I finished The Secrets We Kept in one day! (spoiler)

Does anyone have any good books that got them out of a slump and back into reading?

Someone We Know by Shari Lapena

Published on: July 25th, 2019 by Pamela Dorman Books

Goodreads | Amazon

Summary (from Goodreads): “This is a very difficult letter to write. I hope you will not hate us too much. . . My son broke into your home recently while you were out.”

In a quiet, leafy suburb in upstate New York, a teenager has been sneaking into houses–and into the owners’ computers as well–learning their secrets, and maybe sharing some of them, too.

Who is he, and what might he have uncovered? After two anonymous letters are received, whispers start to circulate, and suspicion mounts. And when a woman down the street is found murdered, the tension reaches the breaking point. Who killed her? Who knows more than they’re telling? And how far will all these very nice people go to protect their own secrets?

In this neighborhood, it’s not just the husbands and wives who play games. Here, everyone in the family has something to hide . . .

You never really know what people are capable of.
