This is the third book I've finished this year, after The Haunting of Maddy Clare and Hollow City. Her Fearful Symmetry doesn't count because I quit more than halfway and jumped straight to the last few pages out of boredom. I regret nothing, btw.
Next book right off The Stack: Kate Morton's cozy mystery, The Forgotten Garden. It's definitely a thicker read this time around. I just hope it doesn't become another one of those where, out of boredom, I quit halfway through and jump to the last chapter, or just plough through quickly to meet some pre-imposed deadline. It's not a race, and I just want to enjoy a good story and be a better reader.
