So, as expected, I didn't get a whole lot of reading done for this readathon! I did finish two books though, which I am pretty pleased with!
First up was Bilgewater by Jane Gardam, which you can read a little bit about in this previous post. At the time of reading this had 219 ratings on Goodreads. I really enjoyed this book and gave it 4 stars.
Next I read Stone Cold Red Hot by Cath Staincliffe.
At the time of reading this book had 25 ratings on Goodreads. This was a quick read at around 200 pages. The plot follows a private investigator as she investigates the case of a girl who went missing 20 or so years previously. The action is non-stop in this short book and I really enjoyed the pace of the writing. There was no waffle or pointless information, just a nicely succinct, intriguing mystery. Another 4 star read and I would highly recommend this for anyone who likes mystery/thrillers. This is part of a series, the 4th book I think, but I don't think it is necessary to read these in order. (I have read the first in the series, but not the 2nd or 3rd, and I don't think I lost anything in the storyline).
After that I picked up The Ghost Hunters by Neil Spring, which I was surprised to find only has 356 ratings on Goodreads, but I only got about 50 pages in. We were down at my mother-in-law's in Bournemouth with lots of family visits and stuff, so unfortunately I didn't have much time for reading. I was enjoying this book but I have put it down for now as I feel I need something a bit more summery! I'll probably go back to this around Halloween.
I loved this idea for a readathon, and I was very happy to see RamblingOfAnElfpire's video today saying she will be running this again in January!
