Thursday Thirteen 237: Recently Read

Another thirteen books already finished for the year. Which is more impressive when you consider A Tale of Two Cities took at least a week to finish. A nice mix here of mystery, YA, classics and romance. Click on any cover to find out more about the book.

* Sea of Suspicion is a rom-suspense won from a group at GoodReads.

* A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens was the January group read for TNBBC at It's one of those books I always wanted to read, but never got round to, and am glad I finally did. Loved it!

* Nora Roberts and Stephenie Meyer: Two borrowed books down, about a dozen more to go.

* Kate Collins: January featured author for the Cozy Mysteries group at GR. I read books 5 and 6 of her Flower Shop Mystery series at beginning of January, and books 7, 8 and 9 at end of the month. This catches me up on the books of hers I actually had in my TBR pile. Still three more in the series to catch up on!

* Dorothy L Sayers: The Complete Stories is an anthology I've been working through since August 2010. Some of the stories were better than others, but overall a pretty good collection. So glad to have it finished, and cross a goal off this year's list!

* Total books read for year up to this point: 15 towards a goal of 100 books for 2012.

YOUR TURN: Read anything good lately you would recommend?

I have the first Casey Martin book at present, after seeing her books on your blog. Just about to start reading.

I recommend The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivy. It just came out.

You're doing great on your reading. I've only read half what you have.

Geesh I've barely read any books this year. I did read Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday. It's YA but pretty good.
Happy T13!

Shelley: I assume you mean 'Casey Daniels'? I hope you enjoy the series as much as I have! :)

Anita: I'll have to check that one out, and thanks--I'm glad to finally be ahead of my goal, instead of behind as I was a couple weeks ago. I hope I can keep up the pace as I did last year.

Adelle: I've rea some really good reviews on Gemma's new YA. It's on my wishlist. *G*

Which did you like best?

Alice Audrey said...

Criminy! You're reminding me of my best friend in high school. She read Gone With the Wind in two days.

Heather said...

Colleen: I really liked the one by Casey Daniels and A Tale of Two Cities, though I also enjoyed those by Kate Collins.

Alice: I read GWTW in HS, but it took me a couple weeks. I'm trying to get ahead with some of the shorter, faster reads so I can tackle another classic. No matter how good they are, those always seem to require a bit more time.

Alice Audrey said...

Yeah, but for you a bit more time might be a couple of weeks. For me, it's a couple of years.

Heather said...

LOL...What can I say, I'm special. *G*
