Happy New Year everyone.

 

I read 86 books in 2018 and I'll see how many I can get to this year.  I don't do the Goodreads challenge because, to me, it puts pressure on myself and I don't like that.

 

I just finished Only In Key West by Kenneth D. Michaels, a mystery.

 

Up next is Family and Other Catastrophes by Alexandra Borowitz.

Happy New Year!

I haven't been here for a while.  Not sure what happened to December.  

 

I had taken out several books that went right back to the library in days, just did not hold my interest. 

 

The last 2 books that I actually finished reading were:

 

 Cover image for The other wife / Michael Robotham.

Childhood sweethearts William and Mary have been married for sixty years. William is a celebrated surgeon, Mary a devoted wife. Both have a strong sense of right and wrong. 

This is what their son, Joe O'Loughlin, has always believed. But when Joe is summoned to the hospital with news that his father has been brutally attacked, his world is turned upside down. Who is the strange woman crying at William's bedside, covered in his blood - a friend, a mistress, a fantasist or a killer?   

 

AND:

 

 

Cover image for An unwanted guest / Shari Lapena.

A weekend retreat at a cozy mountain lodge is supposed to be the perfect getaway. But when the storm hits, no one is getting away. It's winter in the Catskills and Mitchell's Inn, nestled deep in the woods, is the perfect setting for a relaxing maybe even romantic weekend away. When the weather takes a turn for the worse, and a blizzard cuts off the electricity and all contact with the outside world the guests settle in for the long haul. Soon, though, one of the guests turns up dead it looks like an accident. But when a second guest dies, they start to panic.  Something or someone is picking off the guests one by one. And there's nothing they can do but hunker down and hope they can survive.

 

I am now reading Goodbye, Paris!Cover image for Goodbye, Paris

That may be going back very soon.  I'm waiting for the story to begin.

 

After that I look forward to reading  Cover image for The immortalists [large print]

 

Happy reading!
