The past week has been good, reading wise. Better than the last couple of months anyway. On Monday I finished my last book of 2019, The Haunting of Hilltop Manor by Carrie Bates. It was the 12th book I read in 2019 where the title started with “The Haunting of”, no points for guessing what my favourite genre was that year.
On Tuesday I started Year Zero by Jeff Long. Since I count a book for my challenge on the date I finish it, this means that this was my first book of the year, despite starting it in 2019. On Wednesday I spend the morning in bed reading, something I hadn’t done in a long while. The next three days I didn’t read much. The store was open again and since a lot of people still were off work it was busy. I did manage to read a little bit each night. I finished the book this morning. I really enjoyed it, it was the right book at the right moment.
I started the latest Rizzoli & Isles book, I Know a Secret, by Tess Gerritsen. It was released in August 2017 and missed its release. I only found out a little while back. I’m already at 53% tonight. But when you wake up at 5am in the morning and can’t fall asleep again you have plenty of time to read. The book is great, a shame it escaped my attention for so long.
I’m trying to read the books I have on my eReader already, instead of finding new books to read and adding them. I make an exception for series I’m either in the process of reading or those that have new releases. With my reading retreat coming up in just over a week I might fail, and treat myself to something new.
