Book 32 for 2013 – Harlan Coben’s – Six Years

So it has been a long time between Books No. 31 and 32 for 2013. One of the reasons is that I have  been listening to too much music late into the night and that cuts into reading time. Another reason is, no books have enthralled me recently!. I am currently reading James Rollins latest The Eye of God. I am a little more than halfway through it. While I have been enjoying the book. It hasn’t been a  real page turner  for me. Duh! That is exemplified by the fact that I’m still reading it!

Caught - Harlan Coben

You may think that it hasn’t been too long since I posted that I had finished book 24 of 2010 and you are correct because I couldn’t put down Book 25 Harlan Coben’s new book Caught today! Coben is one of my favorite authors.I started out reading the Myron Bolitar series and have read most of them and love the series and it’s quirky characters, several of which appear in Caught. But the stand alones are outstanding and I have read all ten of them. Usually the story-lines revolve around an ordinary person being thrust into extraordinary circumstances and how they deal with that circumstance and while Caught is kinda that but different.
