My 2016 Goodreads goal was to read 70 books – I surpassed that goal at 89 books. Good news, but only 21 of those were from my TBR pile. I didn’t even want to calculate the number I bought, but with the information below, you can see I still have a lot of work ahead of me. But is it really work to read a book? For some maybe, but for me – pure pleasure. As a comparison, when I first started keeping track on February 22, 2016, the TBR was 98. So much for reducing the danger of the towering pile.
Anyhoo, I read several over Christmas – and we’re taking a long weekend vacay later this week, so hoping to finish at least a couple more.
The Dark Army by Joseph Delaney – Enjoyed the writing, characters, and story line, but this novel didn’t grab me like I thought it would; however, I think that’s more me than the book. Not realizing it was the second in a series, I didn’t feel as invested in the characters. It wasn’t difficult to follow the plot as the author did a good job of mentioning key points from the first book in this one.
Macabre Sanctuary – an anthology – Yes…just yes. My review will be posted either this week or next.
The Eighth Day Brotherhood by Alice M. Phillips – Excellent historical thriller and the review will be posted soon.
The Risen by Adam J. Smith – Descriptive writing and a good bit of action, but with the story beginning in the middle of a zombie apocalypse, I was hoping for more answers than this book offered. Perhaps the author plans a sequel.
Will O’ the Wisp by C.S. Boyack – Enjoyable characters, suspenseful story – the full review will be posted next week.
I have a couple of books I need to finish for NetGalley before I can get back to the TBR, but this is where we are right now.
TBR pile: 107
