Hello in New Year and I’m excited to type up a post here! I’m sure you have somewhat idea what you want to read this year, what books you can’t wait to be released in sequence series and what surprises you might find in the upcoming months in book sales.
It’s been a while since I wrote the last post, since I reviewed a book and it was a while when I read one. 2018 marked few huge changes in my life spin, and without any announcement I disappeared from reviewing for months, precisely 4 months! That did a chunk bite off the reading goal for 2018 ^^ My statistics for 2018 is 33 books! The smallest number I have ever read!! But I am glad I could prioritize and focus on something that was very important in my career, although I missed reading a lot, the time flew and now I am – I am back into reading and have started the year quite promising. Have read 2 interesting books in crime genre, also ya and graphic novels, and hey, it’s only 8th January 😀 looking forward to write the reviews, I have missed reading and writing reviews so much! I plan to read at least 57 this year, hopefully close to 100, I am optimistic!
In December I went to Luxembourg for the very first time and spent there 2,5 days. I may had not the best weather to visit this small, yet the country that resides in the very heart of Europe and is a business hub, I enjoyed the trip a lot. Met one of my dear friends and visit 3 Chritmas markets that took the place in the city at the time. Luxembourg has everything, from beautiful architecture to great transportation system in the city. A post will follow as I am returning there again in January to discover it a little bit more.
Recently I discovered and I have read 1/2 of short stories “My Hometown Named Love” by Markus Ahonen, a Finnish writer, these are short love stories from a man’s perspective, the writing is smooth and brilliant storytelling with surprising ending! Review to come. Highly suggest already. Bough via Amazon. He writes crime fiction and there is another series that are currently translated into English/audio books.
I have been excited to be among one of the ARC readers for “A Curse so Dark and Lonely” by Brigid Kemmerer, her book will be Published at the end of January and March – depending on the location where do you live. I like her writing and been happy to read her previous books! This one is one of my most anticipated releases in 2019!
During my Christmas shopping I bought 2 books: Robert Galbraith, #4 “Lethal White” and Carlos Ruiz Zafon #3 “The Labyrinth of the Spirits”. Whohow, two chunky reads. I am eying another book by Lucinda Riley, the last book in her Seven Sister’s series, as that’s the only book series I like written by her. I found the book in the library, so far my que is 124 ^^ let’s see how fast it will become available or maybe I will buy it…
This year as well as in the past years – I plan to read majority of hard copies from the library service, the ARC’s and the books I have bought from The Crime Fiction “Murder One”, which took place in Dublin, last October and the books that are on my Kindle for a very long time 🙂 Sounds pretty busy year ^^
Tell me what do you plan to read this month and year! Looking for suggestions and I am pretty open to discover something new! Let’s get back into reading people!
