I'm going to read 4 books btw Sep. 1 and Oct. 31.
I'm going to read:
Speaking in Tongues by Jeffrey Deaver
Greeley's Cove by John Gideon
The Shadow Man by Cody McFayden and
Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
The first book may be considered a bit of a cheat. I started reading this book a couple of years ago and just couldn't get into it. When we lived in Tucson, I had a gym membership. To make the gym more appealing, I'd select a book that I really wanted to read and I'd only be able to read it while I worked out. This was a book that I chose and it just wasn't working for me so I picked something else and never finished this one. I hate not finishing a book. No matter how bad it may be, I have to know how it ends. This book wasn't bad, necessarily, I just couldn't get into it while working out.
The second is a book someone gave me over 10 years ago. A friend gave it to me while I was stationed in Germany. He assured me it was the scariest book he'd ever read (and he only read scary stuff). I think I should start reading it. 13 years is long enough to put it off. Not that I had any conscious reason for putting it off, just that other books seemed to appeal more.
The Shadow Man is actually on my list of books for this year. I'll be skipping the book I had scheduled for September but will squeeze it in after I read these four.
The Devil in the White City is another that I bought several years ago. I actually bought it as soon as it came out in paperback. Just never got around to reading it. Now's the time!
I'm not the fastest reader but hope to be able to finish.
I love a good Peril, Ruth!
