I’m steaming ahead with my challenge of reading a book a month; I’m now on book 3 in March and at the rate I’m going, I’ll have it finished by the start of April 🙂
I read The Mistletoe Bride by Kate Mosse after finishing Call the Midwife, which is a collection of short stories and I really enjoyed it.
It’s been a long time since I’ve read a collection of short stories. I especially liked The Yellow Scarf and The Mistletoe Bride.]
Thirteen Reasons Why
The next book I read was one I had for Christmas called Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.
It’s a story about a teenage girl, Hannah, who commits suicide but before she does, she records herself on tapes, talking to the people who contributed to her decision to kill herself.
The tapes are mailed to the first person on tape one. They’ve been instructed to mail them to the next person on side two of tape one when they’ve finished listening.
The book is written from the point of view of Clay. He’s one of the people mentioned on the tapes from Hannah.
The dual narration was a bit confusing for the first few pages. I soon got my head around it and ended up really enjoying the book.
This book has been made into a 13 part series on Netflix
Ghosts Of Sleath
I’m now reading a James Herbert novel called The Ghosts of Sleath.
It’s another book about the psychic investigator, David Ash who I first read about in the novel, Haunted.
It’s been a bit disturbing to read if I’m honest. It deals with the murder of a child, sexual abuse of another child and a nasty attack on a youth who didn’t deserve it.
Apart from that, it’s keeping me turning the pages. I’ve been reading it whenever I’ve had a spare few minutes 🙂
I’m on Goodreads if you’d like to follow my progress.
