    Behind Closed Doors, by BA Paris.

    EDIT: I am seventy-four pages into this book, and it's awful. I'll finish it, only because I'm fickle that way. But I'm not digging it. Lazy writing. And boring all to hell. I'm getting tired of these marriage/relationship thrillers that have been coming out since Gone Girl (a book I liked, as I like Gillian Flynn). But, holy shit, since then we've had:

    The Girl on the Train
    Behind Closed Doors
    The Good Wife
    In a Dark, Dark Wood
    (which was a piece of shit, too)

    Plus probably fifty more. I'm sure Gillian Flynn is conflicted as to what the hell she started.

    I've read two chapters of The Stand and suddenly everywhere I go there's a bunch of people coughing.

    Lol that happened when I read the book. All of a sudden, Captain Trips was all around me.

    I am reading Laura Antoniou's "The Killer Wore Leather" for the second time and oh, it is even more marvelous. This is the book that I talked so much about the first time, that it led to me writing and e-mailing book reviews to my mom, which led me in a roundabout way to Goodreads, and so many wonderful paths. I'm so happy. I'm going to buy it when I can.

    Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.

    Still going through Too Like the Lightning but keep needing to pause.

    Book club wants to rad A God In Ruins so latest pause is stopping to complete that.
