Normally I create a TBR with a detailed plan of what I am hoping to get read for that particular month. It is a task that my organized and anal mind enjoys greatly – the planning, anticipation and then, when successful, the crossing off of a completed task. For once I am going into a month with no set TBR – I don’t really know what I am going to read. I have a birthday coming up this month and I have requested a few books (as usual) and so I will just have to wait and see what happens. I do know that October has normally been a very good reading month for me so regardless of what I read, I do hope to get through quite a few over the next 30 days.
Currently I am reading Black Water Lilies by Michel Bussi. This book was translated from French and is a psychological suspense story set in the village where Claude Monet painted his famous water lilies paintings. A murder has taken place and the body is found in the stream that runs through the famous gardens. When I first heard about this book, it ticked so many boxes on my “what I look for in a book list” — it is a psychological suspense which I enjoy, it weaves actual history into the story and I love Claude Monet’s works. I am only 10 pages in currently but it has already captured me.
Happy reading everyone. Gwen
