Sundays In Bed With... Forever and Pieces of Her


Welcome to our Sundays In Bed With… Meme! The meme that dares to ask what book has been in your bed this morning? Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today! 

We’re done trying to make this a blog hop, but still feel free to participate!  Maybe someday we’ll try to make it happen as a blog hop again, but right now we feel like Gretchen trying to make ‘fetch’ happen.

This morning Kim is reading:


Kim is almost done with this one!  I still need to read Sinner, which is kind of a spin-off of this series, which I still need to read, so it'd be fun to maybe do a read-along together.  Let me know, Kim! I already have an idea of how to set up the read-along review.  I remember this being my favorite of the series, mostly because I really loved the supporting characters who really got to shine in this book.  Hope Kim is taking it easy, and resting and reading today!

This morning Kate is reading:

Pieces of Her by Karin Slaughter

I am currently devouring this book on audio!  This is another of Slaughter's standalones (reminder to self: go back and binge read her earlier Will Trent and Grant County books, call it SlaughterFest), and it's narrated again by Kathleen Early, her matter of fact voice both entrances and soothes me during even the most violent of scenes (ya'll, Slaughter sometimes lives up to her name, she pulls no punches, ever).  

There's two time lines going on- the present with millennial Andi, her life stuck in stasis, finding herself in the middle of diner shooting, when her calm, kind, speech therapist mother suddenly steps in and becomes a Badass Warrior Woman.  But then the media comes calling, and Andi (short for Andrea) finds herself on a road trip from hell, exiled from her mother's home.

And then there's the past, which involves a group of people (but don't call them a cult) led by a charismatic man, resorting to violence to change the world (hmm, sounds like a cult).  Their story starts off with a bang (sorry, can't resist the easy joke). 

Of course, these two worlds are going to collide soon, the past meeting up with the present.  I'm rooting hard for Andi, mostly because she is such a millennial and I need her to tap into her inner Badass Warrior Woman.  

Also, I'm not a huge fan of this cover.
