#5 - Every Lie I've Ever Told, Rosie Waterland. To be honest I found this pretty disappointing. Shame, I was looking forward to it.

#4 - The Husbands Secret, Liane Moriarty. Probably the least favourite of hers I've read so far.

#9 The Golem of. Hollywood by Jonathan and Jesse Kellerman. I love Kellerman. This was fantastic. There's a story within the main story which I found fascinating.

#10 The Last Hours by Minette Walters-fantastic historical fiction.

#11 Bad Feminist by. Roxanne Gay (still reading) I am loving this. She is such an engaging writer.

Ooh, that might have to be my next one, thanks for the reminder. It's been sitting on my bookshelf since Christmas 2016!

30. The bad company by Craig Martelle
31.  Windsworn, gryphon riders bk 1. By Derek Alan Siddoway. I really enjoyed this one. A fun fantasy read.

I went to try a sample of a sci fi/post apocalyptic book I was recommended only to realise I'd already bought it a few months ago when it was on special through iBooks. So I'll either read that or book 2 of the Gryphon riders series first.

#6 - Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Gail Honeyman.

I really enjoyed this, such an unexpected delight.

Can I still join? I'm just curious to record how many books I read. Maybe two a week so around 100. I often juggle a few at once so it would be interesting to track.

I use the Goodreads app. They have a 2018 reading challenge you can sign up for. You just log the book as "currently reading" when you start it and when you log it as finished it adds it to the list.

32. Public secrets by Nora Roberts

#4. Dead in the Family by Charlaine Harris.
#5. Into the Water by Paula Hawkins.

I enjoyed this book much more than her 1st novel The Girl on the Train. It kept me guessing right to the end. I really enjoyed the format of having each chapter narrated by a different character, although there's 9 seperate characters to keep track of which was a little confusing at the start.

#6 The Lie by C L Taylor

My reading will likely slow down this week. DP back at work, me at work 3 days a week and with DS the other two. Then long weekend with lots of distractions and then DS back at school. Him back at school means my reading will increase,,,,,YAY!!!

#7 - All the Missing Girls, Megan Miranda.

This was a pretty standard suspense/whodunnit. The written-in-reverse time sequence was distracting, but overall it wasn't bad.

#2 Run- Ann Pachett

very disappointed in Little Fires Everywhere- like a first novel by a teenager (and she's no Austen). Hopefully this one is better

I've seen Eleanor Oliphant... around- I will get it as my next book I think

#13 Five Go On a Strategy Away Day
#14 Five Go Gluten Free
#15 Five Give Up The Booze

Went to the library today and they had all of the above and more. Feel I am cheating a bit counting them as one each but that will balance the books I start and don't finish later in the year.
