Reading progress update: I've read 98 out of 310 pages.
Lying in Wait - Liz Nugent

This is the most boring "thriller." Laurence and Karen have yet to meet, and I'm not sure I even want the meeting to happen. I used to feel sympathy for Laurence, but I now suspect he's about as awful as his mother. He fantasizes about finding and saving Annie and then having sex with her. I wonder if he'd still fantasize about her if he knew she was dead. Maybe. ::shudder::

Lying in Wait - Liz Nugent

My pile of conference ARCs makes me feel guilty. At least this book has only been out for a few days. I've had some of my ARCs for a few years and still haven't read them.

 

So far we have three POVs: Lydia, Karen, and Laurence. Lydia is the wife of Andrew, a judge, and has been wealthy her whole life. Until now, anyway. Andrew blew it, and now they have a mountain of debt that they're desperate to hide. They met up with a prostitute named Annie for reasons that have yet to be revealed (something to do with money). They totally didn't intend to kill her but, well, Andrew choked her and Lydia finished her off.

 

Karen is Annie's sister, the "good" sister. She was supposed to meet up with Annie, but Annie never showed. This wasn't unusual, so it took Karen a bit to start to worry about her.

 

Laurence is Lydia's son, her pride and joy. He's 17 but, to me at least, reads younger. He's bullied at school because of his weight. He knows his dad has lied to the police but he doesn't know why.

 

We'll see how this goes. I don't read thrillers much, but I'm in the mood for one right now.

Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
To Terminator, With Love - Wes Kennedy

This was not at all what I expected. I had thought that Dexter's robot would play a bigger part, but instead it was just some background thing meant to explain all the action. As far as the asexuality aspects went, it was okay I guess, but if I had been Dexter, the way everything played out would have made me incredibly anxious.

To Terminator, With Love - Wes Kennedy

"Because he wasn't Neville Longbottom. He wasn't even Jar Jar Binks; he was Leeroy fucking Jenkins."

 

I had to google Leeroy Jenkins, but otherwise I've mostly been doing okay with this story's pop culture references. I could see the past few pages being annoying for someone who only knows one or zero of the references, though.
