For this year, 2019, I set a goal for myself to read at least twelve books this year. So far, I have read six and I feel amazing. Growing up I never read a whole lot back to back, however, since moving to the mountains I have been reading one book after another. With our current flow of life, we don’t have the best internet that we had before so it has been surprisingly easy to pick up several books and just fly through them, page by page. I really enjoy mystery books so this is the main genre I have been reading; I feel like I get through them a lot faster because I just have to know how it ends and figure out “who did it”.
So far I have read:
- All The Missing Girls – Megan Miranda
- The Perfect Stranger – Megan Miranda
- In A Dark Dark Wood – Ruth Ware
- The Kitchen House – Kathleen Grissom
- Into The Water – Paula Hawkins
- The Roanoke Girls – Amy Engel
Out of this list, my favorite is a tie between All The Missing Girls by Megan Miranda and Into The Water by Paula Hawkins. These were both very well written and left me reading faster and faster to finish them so I could know what had happened. These are both mystery books and have the perfect amount of love life scenarios to add a little extra to the story and it is not overwhelming. I highly recommend both of these.
My least favorite was The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom. I was so disappointed in the book and after reading the author notes in the back I was just angry. I know not all books will have a happy ending but this book gave such hope and huge overcoming and character development to end in such a way. I did finish the book because it did leave me needing to know what happened, but I was unhappy with the way it ended.
I am currently reading Hanging Mary – Susan Higginbotham
On my list to read next is:
- The White Feather Murders – Rachel McMillan
- The Mister – E.L. James
- The Axeman – Ray Celestin
- Suicide Notes From Beautiful Girls – Lynn Weingarten
I am super excited to continue my journey and hopefully read more than the twelve books this year.
I would love to hear from you! Leave a comment and let me know what your favorite books are!
