I have a confession to make.
I haven’t had time to read much lately.
I could make a lot of excuses, but I won’t. Because excuses are boring.
So, in the interest of making amends, here’s what’s on my list:
The Artemis Effect by Kasia James
Three comfortable lives are shattered when a wave of inexplicable events exposes the fragility of human society. With an unprecedented celestial phenomenon, devastating high tides, a breakdown in global communication networks, and the sudden appearance of violent ring-gangs swarming through cities and towns, Kimberley, Scott and Bryn struggle to understand the vast events unfolding around them. Will they survive the Artemis Effect? Will they discover the truth behind the collapse of society before it’s too late?
Storm Warning by Eugenia O’Neal
If you like the happy thought that the Caribbean is just sun, sand and smiling natives bearing coconuts full of fruity drinks, beware! Set on the imaginary island of St. Crescens, the five stories in this collection of short crime fiction will take you deep into the heart of an island society where poverty, corruption, greed and sex form a potent and explosive brew.
I should be back to our regularly scheduled Monday reviews by next week. Meanwhile, what are you reading?
