Bout of Books- Day 4 Round-up

By Lucybirdbooks @lucybirdbooks

Hia readers!

How is it day 4 already?  I feel like Bout of Books just started

Here are my goals…

  1. Catch up to my goodreads reading challenge goal (apparently I’m 3 books behind, even after finishing one yesterday)
  2. Finish my two current reads (I’ve finished 1 already!)
  3. Read my next book group read
  4. Participate in instagram and twitter/daily challenges every day.

I already know I’m not going to make it, but that I will complete more than 2 reads, so I’m happy enough with that.

#genre I'm not really a genre person when it comes to fiction, the closest I get is historical fiction, but I'm very picky with that. When it comes to non fiction however I'm really into #medicalmemoirs. My first was #therealdoctorwillseeyoushortly after reading @patchworkbunny 's review. Since then I find them hard to resist. I read #henrymarsh 's first, #donoharm when I was in hospital for heart surgery. #fragilelives is my favorite so far, but I haven't got to #thelanguageofkindness yet…so it could be replaced! #bookstagram #amreading #readathon #bob26igphoto #boutofbooks

I’ve only been reading ‘Early Riser’ today, but I am almost done, only about 100 pages left, I may even finish when I go to bed!

I’ve not been reading ‘Too Fat, too Loud, too Slutty’ because it’s on the kindle, and I tend to only read that if I’m out of the house

Today’s daily challenge…

I like today’s challenge. I considered doing two, but I decided to just go for the one which highlighted a less well known author… (links below are amazon affiliate links, all money goes back to the blog)

If you like Kate Morton try….Linda Gillard

Linda has quite a few books focused around old houses and family secrets. The House of Silence, in particular, is a bit like a blend of Kate Morton and the gothic sides of Bronte novels.

Her earlier novels are more towards the romantic novels, but I wouldn’t define them as ‘chick-lit’, they are smarter, and just generally different, without the ‘usual’ heroines.

Linda is an indie author. Her first three books were published with a traditional publisher, although she has now published all except Stargazing herself, and since publishing as an indie author has come out with five more.
