What's Up Wednesday
Come and join in at Jaime and Erin's blogs.
What I'm Reading
I have officially read my 50 books for 2014, so now I'm just going to keep going and see how many I read in total.
Book number 50 was The Return of the Discontinued Man, the fifth in the Burton and Swinburne series. It was a lot of fun. I really enjoy this series and really recommend it.
Then I spent some quality time with Mr Jack Reacher again. I really enjoyed The Enemy. It was set in 1990 and had a nice subplot with Reacher's mother and brother. The main mystery was pretty good, too, even though I guessed some of it pretty early on. I like the character because he's a real antihero. Looking forward to reading the next one soon. I like to break the Reacher books up with others. Something tells me I won't catch up with the series until 2015 :P I didn't realise how many books there are, and a new one just came out. Wow.
After that, I read some sci-fi recommended to me by my brother. Check out the sheer 90sness of the cover!
My brother warned me it would be a fairly nasty book, and he wasn't wrong. Huuuuuge trigger warnings necessary. It was a hard read, but it was short and compelling.
Now I'm reading No Harm Can Come To A Good Man... which is an intense book. The author, James Smythe, certainly specialises in dark, dark stories.
What I'm Writing
28k into the rewrite :D I'm really excited for Sunday when I go to the marathon writing session. Here's hoping it proves super productive.
What Else I'm Up To
Unfortunately, I was the victim of bank card fraud this week. Someone cloned my bank card and attempted to use it in NYC. My bank declined the attempt, contacted me and we sorted it all out, but UGH. UGH! It's such a horrible feeling.
Entered Pitch Wars, too. Good luck, fellow potential mentees :D
