Every year I set a goal for the GoodReads Challenge and I never reach the goal. It’s my own fault for setting a high number but I kept that in mind this year. I set my goal at just 15 and over the weekend I reached it! Of course this doesn’t mean I’m done reading for the year. I have a few books loaded on my Kindle just waiting to be read.
Here are the books I’ve read this year!
John Wayne Gacy: Defending a Monster
The Martian: A Novel
Evil Games (Detective Kim Stone crime thriller series Book 2)
Silent Scream (Detective Kim Stone crime thriller series Book 1)
The Lost World: A Novel
Jurassic Park: A Novel
Zodiac Unmasked: The Identity of America’s Most Elusive Serial Killers Revealed
The Girl on the Train: A Novel
Almost Dead (The Lizzy Gardner Series Book 5)
The Darkest Night: Two Sisters, a Brutal Murder, and the Loss of Innocence in a Small Town
Nailbiter Vol. 1: There Will Be Blood
A Death in Belmont
Bogeyman: He Was Every Parent’s Nightmare
Obsessed (Lizzy Gardner Series, Book 4)
The Jurassic Park novels were rereads and Nailbiter is a comic trade, but everything else was new! If you’re someone who enjoys crime fiction I’d recommend the Kim Stone and Lizzy Gardner series. They both feature female leads who kick ass but are shown as being human as well. Of course The Martian was fantastic and everyone should be reading it. The rest is a mix of true crime. If you’re into that genre I highly recommend Bogeyman and Monster. They were both really great reads and very well written. A Death In Belmont was pretty meh, I only gave it two stars.
How is everyone else doing on their reading? Anyone come across anything awesome lately?
(Edit: I’m actually at 16 books now because I finished Horrorstor Sunday night after I wrote this. Expect a review post soon!)
