One of the books I started listening to this week is Because You’ll Never Meet Me by Leah Thomas. This is the story of two young socially isolated boys who become penpals. Their respective issues – one is highly allergic to electricity and the other requires an electrical pacemaker – precludes their ever meeting. I’m about a third of the way through it and am very much enjoying it. It is written in the style of letters the two boys send to each other – which means it’s about as perfect for the audiobook format as you can get. Both narrators are doing an excellent job.
I may do a full review on this later, so I won’t say much more.
Another book I started reading this week was Patricia Briggs’ Dead Heat, the fourth in her Alpha and Omega series. I felt in the mood for some contemporary fantasy. I’ve only just started, but so far, so good. Briggs is usually a reliable go-to for this kind of good, and her characters are generally well-developed and interesting. I’m beginning to feel though that she has just about come to the natural end of the stories she can tell about Mercy, Adam, Charles and Anna. We’ll see. I’ll keep you updated.
Not much more to add this week. Have a good week and catch you soon!
