Favourite Read of the Month: January 2018

During the month of January, I managed to read five books for this year’s Book Pledge.

This titles in January were all either thrillers or murders. I guess I was in the mood for some fast-paced action! To read my reviews (if you haven’t already), click on the title in the following list:

  1. The Secrets She Keeps by Michael Robotham
  2. The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter
  3. Hour Game by David Baldacci
  4. Cruel Intentby J.A Vance
  5. The Winds of Change by Martha Grimes

My favourite read for January would have to be J.A.Vance’s Cruel Intent. This story fulfilled my desire for a quick read that kept me enthralled. This well-written novel reinforced my love of Vance’s stories.

  1. wow – you keep on reading, C.
    and this is not my genre – although some action thrillers and detective series are awesome – ok maybe it is more my genre.
    anyhow – how fun to keep the pledge – are you aiming for 5 a month?


    1. Five a month is what I think I am able to do when I am working (it is about a book a week). When school is out and I am free of deadlines, I am able to read quite a bit more. I decided to aim for 75 books this year – let’s see if I can make it.

    1. Thank you Dawn. My actual goal for the book pledge is to read 75 books. When I am on break I read more than one a week – I actually devour books (especially in the first week when I am tired and want to do nothing else).

  2. Thanks for mentioning your favourite book again. After reading your review of Cruel Intent I went to the library but I hadn’t written down the title or the author. I guess I thought if I saw the book I would recognize it but that didn’t turn out to be the case. Anyway I’ve written it down now so I’ll see if I can find it in the library.


    1. I hope you can – or maybe you can order it online to be shopped to your branch. I am sure that they have at least one copy in the system. (I am assuming you belong to the Toronto public library).


    1. I haven’t read that one yet – I am going to have to look for it in the library. Let me know what you think. Truthfully I haven’t been disappointed by any of his novels that I have read to date.
