It's book week 18 in our 52 books quest and this month is all about historical mysteries.
Since we're saying goodbye to April, it's time for a reading wrap up. I finished eight books in April; all of which were dusty books except for The Bone Shard Daughter. I cheated once, and broke my buying ban in February for Bone Shards Daughter, which was so worth it. However, I've been good since then and haven't added any new books to my stacks. My wish list though is growing ever longer. One more month.... maybe.
Bone Shard Daughter - Andrea Stewart (Historical Fantasy)
Ice Hunt - James Rollins (Thriller, reread)
Klara and the Sun - Kazuo Ishiguro (Dystopian Fiction)
Library of the Unwritten (#1 Hell's Library) - A.J.Hackwith (Fantasy, e)
A Cold Day for Murder (#1 Kate Shugak) - Dana Stabenow (Mystery, e)
The Round House - Louise Erdrich (Native American mystery)
City of Dark Magic (#1 Dark Magic) - Magnus Flyte (Fantasy, Prague, e)
Reliquary (#2 Pendergast) - Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child (Thriller, e)
4 physical books with 1782 pages and 4 ebooks with 1506 virtual pages for a total of 3288 pages. I noticed that although it hasn't been my intention, I read the same number of ebooks as the number of the month. Interesting. We'll see what next month brings. Genre wise, three fantasies and one dystopian fiction, along with two thrillers, and two mysteries. I seem be to be sticking with fantasy, sci fi, and mystery genres. Six are new to me authors.
I'm still sipping on George Eliot's Middlemarch, one chapter at a time in the mornings with breakfast. My current chunkster is Brandon Sanderson's The Way of Kings which is really good. I'm currently on page 732 out of 1200+ pages but enjoying the heck out of it.
I'm taking a mini break at the moment for our May historical mysteries reading month to read dusty book And Only to Deceive by Tasha Alexander which has been on my virtual shelves since 2014.
