I posted lots of book reviews this week, not all related to the Take the Journey Reading Challenge. I realized I must have got a long way behind when I saw my review for one book claimed I was going to wait till after Christmas to read the next in the series. Now, when was Christmas?
Ah well. I did find time to read a bit too, besides posting reviews. Mary DeMuth's Thin Places was a beautiful read, and one that I actually reviewed at about the right time, since it's only just come out.
A very different book was Sarah Waters' The Night Watch which I borrowed from a friend. It brought World War II London very vividly to life, and introduced me to some fascinating characters. I was intrigued by the way the story goes backwards in time, rather like the way we meet people and learn later about their pasts; and by the way ones assumptions don't always prove true.
And in a lighter, or darker vein (depending on your point of view), was Greywalker, by Kat Richardson, which my husband suggested I might like. The heroine is a Private Investigator with some rather curious skills, and the writer introduces her ability to see supernatural things very "naturally." A really fun tale.
So, where am I with my Reading Challenge points? 294 to date! Maybe I'll cross that magic 300 mark soon!
