Reading progress update: I've read 85 out of 300 pages.
Emma in the Night - Wendy Walker

Seriously, this book is only being told from 2 perspectives. Why did the author choose one to be first person and one to be third? Why not just have both people telling from the same point of view? It breaks the flow when you go from "I" to "she". 

 

So far, I'm intrigued by the story, just annoyed by the writing choice.

I really dislike when books switch from first person to third person perspective between chapters. Why can't they stick with a single style?

TBR Thursday
The House on Mango Street - Sandra Cisneros
Why We Sleep: Unlocking the Power of Sleep and Dreams - Matthew Walker
The Great Hunt - Robert Jordan
It's All Relative: Adventures Up and Down the World’s Family Tree - W.W. Jacobs
Lincoln in the Bardo - George Saunders

Happy New Year, my Booklikes friends!

 

I have to finish The House on Mango Street tonight so that I can discuss it at book club on Friday evening!  No sweat, I should be able to do that and still have time to work on the next book.

 

The rest of the roster is necessitated by library due dates!  I'm almost done Why We Sleep, so I should be able to wrap it up quickly (without staying up late, this author has me scared to miss my sleep!).  Due in 7 days.

 

The Great Hunt is part of my Science Fiction & Fantasy reading project--its a big, thick book and due in 8 days time.  I know how part of my weekend will be spent!

 

It's All Relative is a book that I heard about on CBC radio--the author was being interviewed and since I'm a genealogist, I couldn't resist.  A lot of people in my city seem to listen to the same station and the books mentioned are always popular.  There are 34 people waiting to read this after me!

 

I had a long wait for Lincoln in the Bardo and now I have to get busy and read it.  It's due in 14 days and there are 168 people waiting for it.  No renewals.

 

Starting the New Year off with some interesting stuff!  Hope your January is going well too.

2018 Book Challenge/ January TBR
The Power - Naomi Alderman
Emma in the Night - Wendy Walker
Little & Lion - Brandy Colbert
American Fire: Love, Arson, and Life in a Vanishing Land - Monica Hesse
Dolores Claiborne - Stephen King
Justice League/Power Rangers (Jla (Justice League of America)) - Barbara Taylor Bradford
Between - Jessica Warman

Where does the time go? Man....

 

For 2018 I am going to change things up a little. Instead of reading only ebooks or only hardcopies, I have decided I will read one ebook and  one mass market paperback at the beginning of the month then move on to the rest of my books. This will help me knock down the hoards of both types of books I seem to be collecting without ever reading. I have fewer mm paperbacks that Kindle books by far, but still, I tend to buy them and then never read them. Hopefully this will help me get things in order better around here.

 

What's your 2018 challenge? Mine is 100 books.
