Happy 2020!! My Goodreads Reading Challenge for 2019 was 45 books and I read 47. So this year I upped my game to 50. I am, unfortunately, a slow reader so this will be somewhat of a challenge. Probably doesn’t help that I read 4 books at the same time. Why do I do this??? I have no idea. I just love to read so in my feeble mind reading that many at a time makes me feel productive. I know… I know… I could read 1 book at a time much faster if I just read one book at a time. But what fun is that??? I usually read one Netgalley ARC, one Indie ARC, and 2 books that are on my TBR.
So let’s get to what I am reading right now:
- House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski: Have any of you read this one?? It always pops up as one of the scariest books which is why I had to read it. But this book it taking me forever to read. There are a couple of stories being told at the same time in this book. Sometimes it drags, sometimes it reads fast. I am halfway through this book so you will have to wait a little while longer for a full review. Right now I have mixed feeling on this one. Did I mention the pages are very creatively done?? Never read anything like it.
- Hidden Bodies (You, #2) by Caroline Kepnes: Yes, I am reading this AND watching the second season of You on Netflix at the same time. I read You AFTER I watched the first season. I really enjoyed the book and reading more into Joe’s whacky thoughts. This one seems just as good. I am halfway through this one too. Quite a few differences in the book and series, but both are good.
- Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt: So this one has been on my TBR FOREVER!! I know, I am really REALLY late to this party. I am probably about 1/4 through this book and really love reading about all the difference characters. So far my favorite, of course, is Chablis.
- His Name Was Zach by Peter Martuneac: This one I received as an ARC from the author in return for an honest review. Not finished with this one yet, BUT…. it is a gripping book! It is another zombie apocalypse book but it dives more into the relationship between a former Marine and a 14 year old girl who he “adopts” as his daughter. So far this is a touching story with plenty of excitement thrown in. Stay tuned for this review. I have a feeling it will be a good one.
I would love to hear what all of you are reading and/or what is on your TBR for 2020. I may need to add some to my ever growing list! lol
