Dear ladies and gents,
I am about a year in with my Kindle experiment.
– I am still reading loads.
– It’s fantastic (FANTASTIC) when you travel.
– I have decided (finally I might add) that it’s ok to give up on a book and just stop reading if it doesn’t interest me.
– can’t keep track of the stuff I’ve read.
– I’m getting picky about books.
– one thing I’ve learned sucks a**? When the book is great and then the endings sucks.
What do you use to keep track of things you’ve read? I have a Goodreads account, but that is mostly so I can find stuff that might be interesting.
Stuff that peaked my interest of late (prepare for some blood and gore, no high brow stuff here):
Anything Mark Billingham – started with Die of Shame and liked it enough to seek out his other novels. Then I realized that some of his Tom Thorne novels were turned into TV series (I’m blond ok, I can be slow on the uptake).
Cosy mysteries – M. C. Beaton. OMG the lady is 80 and she writes 2 books a year (one Agatha Raisin and one Hamish Macbeth). You have to admire her output. And once you start, her books are addictive as hell. Agatha Raisin currently airs on Sky.
Megan Abbott “You Will Know Me” – this started off great and held my interest, but then the ending was just… meh.
Joe Hill “The Fireman” – gave up about half way through. Normally I really like Joe Hill’s novels. And I’ll probably finish this one. But for some reason I just couldn’t focus long enough to stay with it.
Justin Cronin “The City of Mirrors” – last in the Passage trilogy. And can I be frank with you?
I got started and I just cannot. I’ve completely lost track and I don’t know what is happening but o!m!freaking!g! I would like to finish this sucker.
So if anyone has any recs that would be much obliged, please and thank you!
