I don’t even KNOW how many books I’ve read since I last updated. How sad is that? Let’s make a list.
I listened to Caught by Harlan Coben. SUCH a good story. As a parent it made me scared to death. As a former naive teen who probably did things she shouldn’t have, it made me thankful nothing truly bad ever happened to me (or, well, happy I didn’t die).
I read some books by Jack Kilborn. I found out he had a grouping of 6 books that all tie in together in the final book so I wanted to read them since I had already listened to one of them. They were Afraid, Trapped and Origin. Origin was my least favorite of the three because it dealt with a demon and was a little out there, even for me. Afraid was…well, frightening. It was about a small town terrorized by super soldiers who had one mission – find Wiley and neutralize him. Trapped was also pretty scary in a “You don’t know who you will run into in the dark” kind of way. Oh, and there were cannibals. Sadly, the cannibals weren’t the scariest people in this book.
SO I apparently also read two MORE books. What can I say, I was on vacation for a couple days and a 6 hour car ride is great reading time. The first was Little Girl Lost by Brian McGilloway. It was ok. It wasn’t bad but it was one of those books where a lot was going on and it was kind of hard to follow the entire story properly. I guess the truth is, generally speaking there’s a lot going on in a cop’s life as it is so this book tried to show all the happenings and how they come together. It was a little disjointed but all in all it was a good story.
The FINAL book was just another Mary O’Reilly mystery. I do not know why I read these anymore. I need to stay away from series reading. This was called Buried Innocence. It was hard to read. Being a mom is hard. Being a mom who dealt with infertility is harder. Being a mom who dealt with infertility and then reads stories about people who give up their children to people who hurt them is torturous. There’s your warning.
I think it’s fair to say I will definitely finish 52 books this year.
