2019 Reading Challenge





My 2019 Reading Challenge is a list of 50 books. I have a fair amount to still read carried over from last year’s challenge, quite a few of which I actually bought on Kindle but didn’t get around to reading. So I’d like to read those as a priority.

I will probably set my Goodreads goal to 30 books aga...

I liked the mystery element, and that kept me reading to the end to find out what happened.

But I found the story pretty repetitive and didn't really warm to any of the characters. Also, it was hard to tell the difference between the three first perso

What an odd book. Quite honestly, it read like the first draft of a novel with the authors notes still included. Unsatisfactory reading.
