  1. I’m listening to BEHIND HER EYES right now. Hmmm….have got about a 1/3 left. Curious bout that ‘ending’ that is much talked about. I have NEWS OF THE WORLD on my Kindle and hope to get to it this year. Have a good week, Mary!


    • You’ve got me curious, Kay. I think I better start listening soon before dissenting reviews (from all the raves I read) start coming out!! Hope we both like it.
      One thing about News of the World. I picked audio because I read a couple reviews that complained about the lack of quotation marks. I’ve read a few books that lacked those and didn’t enjoy at all. I thought the audiobook was wonderful.


  2. I never thought about using an Audible credit for Behind Her Eyes…but I have never gotten into Audible! Sigh!


    • I was thrilled to receive The Mother’s Promise after loving The Things We Keep several weeks ago. I may have found another go-to author 🙂


  3. mmm now you have me intrigued by News of the World – I must keep an eye out for it. I loved the Joshilyn Jackson book although it was audio that I listened to.


  4. Hi Mary,

    “Behind Her Eyes” does sound good, but notwithstanding the fact that I am not a huge fan of audio books, this one does sounds as though it would benefit more from being read, rather than listened to, so it will be interesting to get your take on that.

    I’m not too sure that I would enjoy all of Sarah Pinborough’s books, but there are at least a couple of others that I might try.

    Thanks for sharing and have a good week 🙂



  5. Great reading month! News of the World has been getting a lot of stellar reviews. I’ll probably go with the audio, especially since you thought the narration was good.
