Wow this image almost fooled me and I am the one who took it. The weather is really not on the sunny side around here. More like cold, colder and coldest… It’s a stay indoors, cozy up with a good book kind of weather. Speaking of books one of the goals for this year was more reading so I took some steps to achieve my goal:
- Less TV (no brainer)
- Keep my phone in my purse
- Have a new book waiting before I finish the current one. It works for knitting so why not.
- If it’s not good after two chapters toss it.
- Keep a reading log. I’ve been keeping one on goodreads but I got this and I love it.
- Teach the little ones to respect my reading time. Not sure about this one, I might have to build a bunker.
- Take my book everywhere
Nothing beats a blood curdling mystery thriller to make you want to carry your book everywhere and read. When it comes to mystery i believe Stephen King is a master. I’m not much of a mystery books reader but I am happy to break the rules for Mr King. Mr Mercedes is a far cry from the first books by Stephen King. No aliens or scary cats but a beautifully crafted mystery with engaging characters. The retired police officer, the mentally unstable killer living with his mom…a recipe for a good mystery read.
