I know we all love book mail, there’s nothing like waiting weeks for a book, and then, it arrives and we get all giddy ripping open the package. Well, okay, maybe not ‘giddy’ but you know what I mean. So I got two of the three books I ordered with LOST HILLS by Lee Goldberg, a mystery thriller, supposed to be arriving today. This at least should be a quick read, it wasn’t till after I ordered it that I found out it’s only 128 pages long. Sigh, fingers crossed, it still manages to pack a punch in such a short length.
My copy of THE SURVIVORS by Jane Harper finally arrived it only took two weeks to get here. Given it was released on Feb 2 and I had it on pre-ordered, why did it take so long? Who knows. I might not bother preordering again from Chapters Indigo given this is the fourth book they’ve taken their merry time delivering.
The third book, A GAME FOR ALL THE FAMILY by Sophie Hannah, is a psychological-thriller with gothic overtones, or so I’m told. I was looking for her latest but it isn’t out here, yet, so settled on this one to get a taste of her writing style. She’s another new author for me, so I’m hopeful I’m going to like her as this one sounds like it has all the right ingredients for a good chilling read.
Thing is, I started to read The Survivors last night, all excited to get stuck in to a new Jane Harper and, well, got about 30+ pages in, and was bored. Yes, I know, how can I get bored reading a Jane Harper? I set the book aside and will start again later this afternoon. Maybe I was too tired last night, or not in the right mood or, this one is not going to be a stellar read. I will just wait and see if this one is just a slow starter.
And you, tell me about your up coming reads.
