So, for this year I have the goal to take track how many books I am reading, each month and in the whole year and then maybe be able to compare it to next year etc…
So here are the books I have been reading in January:
The Girl on the train – Paula Hawkins
This book has been talked about quite a bit, but I have to say, I saw it at my library and just took it home, I had no idea about the hype, until I heard Melinda in her yarnderwoman podcast talk about it. Well, the book. It was ok, a very quick read, some parts were very good, others just ok, but overall a good, quick read.
Verheissung – Jussi Adler Olsen
The sixth book out of a great series, I love them. They made the first book into a movie, I’ve seen it and it is pretty great too. The series is about a grumpy old police men and his crazy helper and a strange secretary and it is just too good. I love those books! It’s originally written in danish, which wouldn’t have been a problem to read for me, but I started the first two books in German and when I start a series in one language, I tend to finish them all in the same language, as sometimes translation can cause books to be worse, same or better.
The cuckoo’s calling – Robert Galbraith
The first out of a series by J.K. Rowling. Another grumpy detective, I just like grumpy people in books! This was a good and quick read too. While reading it, I put a hold for, which I thought would be the second book out of the series, but after finishing the first one, found out it was the third one… But I love my library! So back to the book. An interesting plot and as I said Cormoran Strike, the private detective, is a great person 🙂
Blod på snö – Jo Nesbø
Another of my favourite authors, read it in Swedish, a very short book, to be honest, I expected more, but it is a very well written book, a bit too short for my liking and no real twists or turns, or well, maybe the end, I did not quite expect it. Anyway. Wish I would have gotten this one from the library and not bought it, but anyway.
These were the books I have been reading in January! Thanks for reading!
