Book 50

Standard

If I can keep up my current pace I’m on target to beat my 2016 reading goal, all I need to concentrate on then is keeping up to date with the reviews too, (although I do have a plan!)

I’m fifty books read for the year so far with I Know Who Did It by Steve Mosby marking the half century.

The hardest crimes to acknowledge are your own…

Charlie Matheson died two years ago in a car accident. So how is a woman bearing a startling resemblance to her claiming to be back from the dead? Detective Mark Nelson is called in to investigate and hear her terrifying account of what she’s been through in the afterlife.

Every year Detective David Groves receives a birthday card for his son…even though he buried him years ago. His son’s murder took everything from him, apart from his belief in the law, even though the killers were never found. This year, though, the card bears a different message: I know who did it.

Uncovering the facts will lead them all on a dark journey, where they must face their own wrongs as well as those done to those they love. It will take them to a place where justice is a game, and punishments are severe. Nelson and Groves know the answers lie with the kind of people you want to turn and run from. But if they’re to get to the truth, first they’ll have to go through hell…

First Fifty

Standard

Well I’ve just finished reading my fiftieth book of the year, annoyingly almost a month later than I managed the same feat last year, so I really am going to have to up my reading level if I’m going to beat last years total of 130.

That said, I’ve found a great little feature on the Kindle app for my iPad that has encouraged me to get through several e-books this month. It’s a little feature that displays at the bottom of you page that tells you how long it will take you to finish reading the book given your current pace of reading.

If it tells me I have “3 hrs and 11 mins left in book” I want to see how accurate it is, so I am now constantly trying to race it.

It also means I’m a little behind on my reviewing as I keep starting another book instead of writing about the last one. I’ll be aiming to catch up with these over the next week or so.

Oh, and in case you are wondering, because I know some of you will be, book number fifty was Land of Shadows by Rachel Howzell Hall.
