#EmptyShelf17: 51 Books Read and Reviewed!

I’ve enjoyed getting to use Goodreads a little more this year, combining it with building up selection of short (much shorter than in the past) #EmptyShelf reads on this blog. We’ll see if I still blog about reads, but I completed my challenge of 50 book reads this year: … and here’s my final review for this year:

Glass HousesGlass Houses by Jackie Buxton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved Jackie’s Tea and Chemo, so was looking forward to reading the first novel. It wasn’t quite what I expected (I don’t know what I did expect), but I enjoyed following the characters developing and interacting, the moral maze as Tori deals with coming round from a coma to a realisation that she’s blamed for killing whilst texting. I do wonder if people are really that hideous to people text-driving, as for so many it’s a case of ‘there but for the grace of God go I’, although I think some realise that – and the ending almost leaves me wondering if there’s a sequel coming for another driver! Still a few loose ends I wonder if I missed a solution to, but plenty to chew on, think about – certainly not light and fluffy reading!

Apparently I’m still currently reading about 40 books, so – erm, yeah, polymath at play!
