I’ve always found reading to be a good barometer of my well being … the more disconnected I am from what’s important, the less I read; the more at home I am with myself, the more my library expands.
And so as part of my pledge to do more of what matters, I thought I’d start tracking my reading.
I’m also trying to expand my reading repertoire, so hoping this will also help to encourage me to not get stuck in a reading rut.
This is how my reading year started (all link to goodreads):
What can I say, but please, can I have some more! Loved His Dark Materials, and the announcement of this new series was the highlight of 2017 🙂 Now to just wait patiently for Volume 2.
I came across this in a review by Kate Forsyth on the Booktopia blog. I’ve only started reading historical novels in the past couple of years – I guess as I get older, history is becoming more interesting and relevant! I can’t get enough of them now.
I read this years ago, and was reminded of it during the whole drama with Kevin Spacey. Anyway, the book was just as good as I remembered it, and I’m super glad to have given it a second read.
This one was reviewed by Alyssa Mackay for her January Mystery of the Month. A gritty but not overly heavy read, and I’ll definitely be looking forward to the next in the series.
I’ve always had a huge amount of respect for Tara Moss but had never actually read these books (or any type of ‘supernatural mystery’). These were a fun read, with lots of interesting historical references that got me googling (always a good sign!).
