I have to leave to go to the Whitecaps game in about an hour, so I think I'll move on to some short stories. That way I won't leave something unfinished. I' not sure if I'll listen to an audiobook or read on my phone as I walk. Perhaps the latter as I have a book on the go that I can pick up easily.
Hour 14 Mini-Challenge:Bookish Brew
I've been alternating between ice tea and real tea. And cold pizza...
Hour 18 Mini-Challenge: Best Of...
Here are some of my best of books for the past year.
Best Book of the Reading Year - Life After Life by Kate Atkinson. I can't count how many times I nearly walked into people reading it on my phone walking to work. But I couldn't wait,
I'll give Kate Atkinson Best Author of my reading year, because I loved the Jackson Brodie novels as well. And yes, I'm one of those middle aged women who sigh when they say his name (though mainly because Jason Isaacs is lovely when he's not platinum blond), so Jackson gets my Character of the Year as well.
Best Mystery - How the Light Gets In by Louse Penny. I discovered this series this year - I started in the middle and worked forwards and then backwards, which I think was an advantage, because the writing kept getting stronger. The only disadvantage was that it was pretty clear who the killer was in the first book, since the character wasn't in the later books :)
