I am reading a book called The Locked Room by Elly Griffiths. I have read all the books in this series and this is number 14. It came out earlier this year but it is set back in March 2020 and the following months during the first lockdown here.

It is weird reading it as it really reminds me of what it was like during that time in my life. The empty roads, the panic buying, the Prime Minister almost dying from Covid etc... The lead character has a cat and she was saying how she needed to put cat food as a priority. I remember I was like that with pet food, cat litter and toilet paper as I was paranoid about running out of any of them!

I am waiting for Book 5 of the Ruth Galloway series by Elly Griffiths, to arrive from the library - I am very much enjoying them as it all the things I like, mystery, whodunits, love, twists etc.

I finally finished

Cloud Cuckoo Land


I thought it was a little slow going and confusing at the beginning. But I really liked it once I got into it.
Really good ending too.

I read another book from the ones I have on my kindle yesterday. It was called The Holiday. It was really good and I did not guess the twists at all! I got it from Prime Reading so it was free for me. I read after that it was turned into a Netflix thriller. The Holiday cast I Jill Halfpenny leads Netflix thriller | Radio Times

I did start reading Into The Water which is a book by Paula Hawkins (the woman who wrote The Girl on The Train) but I couldn't get into that at all.

Finished another Tim Dorsey book today called "Hammerhead Ranch Motel". This is an older book published in 2000. It is another crazy ride through Florida with many quirky characters and laughable shenanigans. I didn't like it as well as some of the others I have read but still entertaining and makes you LOL.

Demi Moore's book was interesting, it was an easy read. Ashton Kutcher doesn't come across very well in it!

I've been listening to a podcast about Heidi Fleiss on my walks last week and the woman doing the podcast keeps mentioning Demi Moore's autobiography so I bought it on my kindle. I'm about to start reading it in the bath.:)

Demi Moore Lets Her Guard Down - The New York Times
I read my kindle in the bath, too. I'm sure someday I will nod off and drop it in the bath.

I read Dark Matter a couple years ago and really liked it. Recursion was good too.

I'm half way through American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I've been wanting to read this author for a while, I'll definitely be checking out more of his stuff.

I finally received and finished Dark Matter - liked it very much!! thank you!
