What am I reading??

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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

I am an avid book reader! I have been reading nonstop since 7th grade when I first picked up Pet Semetary by Stephen King. I love crime, psychological thrillers, mystery/thrillers, suspense and horror. But I do like to venture outside the box on occasions.
