Finished the AT book and went right to The Woman in Cabin 10.  It was one of those that was hard to put down.  Read a tiny bit night before last before falling asleep and managed to read the rest of it yesterday, despite a day full of errands and appointments.

This week finished The Girl on the Train..............loved it!!!  Only about 40 pages left on The Woman in Cabin 10 and it is SO good too.  Don't spoil the ending for me, Cath! lol ;)  Any recommendations for my next read?  I am likely to end up in a Barnes and Nobles this weekend looking for another good one.

I just finished We Were Liars (E. Lockhart), and it was great.  Definitely kept twisting!

Picked up The Woman in Cabin 10 yesterday, but haven't started it yet.  I'm currently reading Downfall by J.A. Jance.

Went on to The Likeness by Tana French, book #2 in the Dublin Murder Squad mysteries.  Enjoyed it, then read another AT hike book (Marathon's something or other-Marathon being his trail name).  Now am on Faithful Place, book #3 in the Dublin Murder Squad mysteries.  These are dark as well...really liked the second one.  But I keep wanting to speak like they do, LOL.

Cheryl, I enjoyed The Woman in Cabin 10 so much that I went and found the other bestseller from the same author (Ruth Ware).  It is called In a Dark, Dark Wood.  Almost halfway through it after this weekend (not lots of free time, but I am also a slow reader).  I am really loving these British authors and their different lingo. lol

Lindsay, I had to start reading it even though I'm only halfway through my other book.  I think it's going to be good!  I read In a Dark, Dark Wood several months ago and it was good.

Yeah!  I KNOW I have tried to say "amn't" before and these Irish folk do use it!  I'm not crazy!  Must be my Irish side coming out, lol.  And I find myself wanting to say "bollocks" or "bollix" when something goes wrong.  :P

Yup.  I can just see myself calling everybody 'love' and referring to  a 'bugger' or a pain in the 'arse'. lol ;D

Just finished In a Dark, Dark Wood yesterday.  I love books where you think you have it figured out halfway through, but it ends completely different than you thought.  It was one of those.  Started on What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty last night, but I am already thinking it may not be my style. It is more of a romantic comedy, but I guess I shouldn't make a decision only 10 pages in. Thinking the suspense ones are more fun. 

Mandy, I looked for We Were Liars but couldn't find it.  May look on amazon, I am sure they will have it there. Read the plot summary and it sounded good.

I finished The Woman in Cabin 10 and really enjoyed it.  I checked out Home by Harlan Coben to read next.

Anyone else reading much?  I have been reading up a storm!  Like on my 14th novel in less than 5 months.  Right now I am reading The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty.  About half way through and it is pretty good.  So weird how I used to do anything to get out of having to read and now I actually really like to read.  What are you reading?

I try to read some every night, but usually fall asleep.  I read a little during the day if I get some time to myself. 

Right now I'm reading a James Patterson book.  I've been reading a few of his lately.  I tend to find an author I like and then try to read everything they've written.

I struggle to find time to read as of late.

I was reading A Man Called Ove.  Didn't get through it. Not because of the book or storyline. Just me not setting aside time to read.

Maybe that should be one of my New Year's Goals!

Enjoy!
