I finally did it! Finished my 200th book last night, and it was a nail-biting suspense tale that seemed to fly by. The Edge of Normal, by Carla Norton (click title for my review), was a great book to lead me to the final goal line.
In fact, the last few weeks of books have been awesome. Thanks for Amazon Vine review books, and also for my ability to more accurately choose books that I will love.
Some may wonder why I rate most of my reads in the four and five star category. It’s not that I think all books deserve this rating, but that I now can tell (pretty well) what I’ll love. And select those books accordingly.
So what’s next? Should I just rest on my laurels (pun intended!), or keep reading? I vote for more reading…and now that the numbers game is behind me, I think I will savor the final books of the year.
Today I’m reading One Hundred Names, by Cecelia Ahern. It’s been awhile since I read one of her books, but this one promises to totally absorb me today.
Here’s the blurb:
Scandal has derailed Journalist Kitty Logan’s career, a setback that is soon compounded by an even more devastating loss. Constance, the woman who taught Kitty everything she knew, is dying. At her mentor’s bedside, Kitty asks her—what is the one story she always wanted to write?
The answer lies in a single sheet of paper buried in Constance’s office—a list of 100 names—with no notes or explanation. But before Kitty can talk to her friend, it is too late.
Determined to unlock the mystery and rebuild her own shaky confidence, Kitty throws herself into the investigation, using her skills and savvy to track down each of the names on the list and uncover their connection. Meeting these ordinary people and learning their stories, Kitty begins to piece together an unexpected portrait of Constance’s life. . . and starts to understand her own.
I love stories in which the MC goes on some kind of quest, and uncovers secrets. Delicious! What are you reading today…and what will you be doing for the rest of the year?
