Read 2020 - 10 - Harlan Coben and Words

Feels like I'm flying-along with my reading this year. Then 10th book/magazine/read removed from my shelf is Harlan Coben's Seconds Away. Harlan Coben is one of my favourite authors - in fact, I believe I say so on my bio page. Despite that, I haven't read one of his books in about four or five years.

I don't know what happened either.

Seconds Away sat on my shelf for about five years and survived one house move. It's a Micky Bolitar mystery, which means its YA. Although it's the second in the series, you don't need to have read the first to catch up with events. It's a little-bit of a lighter read than the Myron Bolitar books - which I love, love, love - but definitely worth a read.

On the writing front, I've been a little lost. I've had one rejection for a story that was sent to a different magazine than the one the editor rejected it for - sigh!
I started one novel (that I've been making notes for since November), then decided I hated it* (I can be very melodramatic), declared I've been fooling myself for forever (seriously, melodramatic), then started something else. Apparently, I never learn.
*I will go back to it
