Currently Reading

Well here we are just a couple of weeks into the new year and I’m already two books behind on my GoodReads reading goal! haha… I love to set a number and think about the different genres I want to read over the year but it’s basically ideas. If I meet these goals or not, what matters is that I’m enjoying my reading and here’s what I’m reading lately.

Winter Solstice by Rosamund Pilcher. This was my first book of the year and it’s such a good and engrossing story but I had to put it aside to focus on a book for my upcoming book group.

The Lock Artist by Steve Hamilton. The protagonist is a young man who can’t speak after suffering trauma as a young child. He’s has quite a unique talent though in that no lock is a deterrent and of course bad things are about to happen.

The Librarianist by Patrick deWitt. Bob Comet is an older gentleman who was a former librarian and one day he decides to volunteer at a senior center. Honestly the first half of this was engaging but somewhere along the way I feel like I’m reading a totally different book. There’s a lot more focus on some other characters from Bob’s young age and the story is just dragging.

I hope to finish one of these books soon and given that we are expecting frigid weather conditions in the next few days then I’m planning to stay in with some warm drinks and my books. Hope you all stay warm and safe!
