Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2018 - Reviews
Bev at My Reader's Block has linked up for our first reviews of the year. I read nine books in January, of which five came from my TBR shelves. Of these I have so far written reviews on four. Here they are.
One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez (review will come). It took me quite a while to finish this magical realism and I have still not made up my mind what I really think about it.
Hunting Season by Andrea Camilleri. Another magical realism and a murder mystery at the same time. It takes place in Sicily in 1880 and is wonderfully written.
The Mysteries of Beethoven's Hair by Russell Martin and Lydia Nibley. A historical mystery following a lock of Beethoven's hair through history. Exciting.
Finding Your Element by Ken Robinson. A guide how to find your passions in life.
Love in a Blue Time by Hanif Kureishi. My first book by him, but maybe not his best. I had difficulties engaging in these short stories.
I still have seven books to go to read Pike's Peak, but I am doing my best. How about your. How are you doing in your mountaineering efforts?
