I went to The Works this week and got a huge stack of books. Going to any bookshop is dangerous, as I will leave with at least one book, but The Works is particularly dangerous as it’s so cheap. I got 23 books for a total of £35.30. The fact that some of them will likely sit on a shelf for six months before I get around to reading them is irrelevant.
Chaos Walking – I’ve seen a lot of good things about this trilogy so I’m really excited about reading it. I’m going to try and set aside a weekend to read all three.
Murder Games – I tried watching the TV show and wasn’t a fan. I thought the plot was interesting, but the TV show felt quite rushed, so I’m hoping the book will be better.
James Patterson and Ian Rankin are usually pretty enjoyable mysteries so I almost always buy the books that I haven’t read yet.
We Were Liars – I’ve seen a lot about this and been considering reading it for a while, so I’m glad I can finally add it to my TBR pile.
The other four don’t have many ratings on Goodreads so I’m excited to find some books that I don’t have any expectations for. The Girl in the Green Dress by Cath Staincliffe was one of my favourite reads of 2018 so I’m hoping that The Silence Between Breaths will be almost as good.
The rest are a mix of thrillers and mysteries.
The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair – I watched the TV adaptation earlier this year and enjoyed it and I’ve been wanting to read the book for a while now.
In Bloom – This is the sequel to Sweetpea which I read a couple of years ago. I wasn’t expecting a sequel so I’m interested to see how this measures up.
