accidentMy Friday Reads is a bit different. I’m not a huge fan of the term “book-slump” (though I have used it before) because I don’t really like to associate my reading with.. a slump? But up until about Tuesday, I was reading three books that I just wasn’t into. Then I had a miraculous few days where in some way or another, five books found their way to my desk, all burning with potential. I’ve started a few of them, but think that this weekend will be devoted to The Accident. This is Chris Pavone’s second book (his first being The Expats) which is basically a commercial mystery/thriller. The Accident tells the story of a manuscript (also called The Accident) that contains information that could ruin .. well.. something big (you’ll have to read and see). The story pulls together a multitude of personalities to slowly unravel the plot. This one was sent to me by a friend at a publishing house with a note that said “A thriller set in the publishing world. Maybe for you?”

So far, about 40 pages in, I would say this IS for me. I don’t normally tend towards commercial thrillers, but don’t shy away from them either. This is a nice change of pace from my latest reads and I am loving that about it. Fast-paced, interesting characters, and set in a world that is familiar and beloved to me! I’m curious to see how the rest of the story unfolds!

What are you guys reading this weekend?

  1. I found myself reading several books lately that just weren’t doing it for me (potential slump), so I ditched them and found something that works. I think that’s the best thing we can do for ourselves as readers. :) I hope you enjoy this one!

  2. The Accident is coming up for in the new year. I haven’t read THE EXPATS yet, and I’m not normally drawn to commercial thrillers, but both are on my radar.
