My 2019 Reading Challenge | Books 11-15

This post contains affiliate links.

Guess what? I’ve completed my 2019 Goodreads reading challenge! I initially set it at 12 books as I have really struggled with finding time and motivation for reading in recent years. However, I have found myself reading a lot since 2019 started so I have managed to achieve my goal!

I am planning on reading as much as I can for the rest of the year and seeing what the final number is. Today I want to talk to you about books 11-15 of my challenge – you can read all about books 1-5 here and 6-10 here.

So here are books 11-15 and what I thought about them!

The Girl In The Pink Raincoat by Alrene Hughes – 5/5 (sent for review)

I’ve written a full review here but I was really surprised with just how much I loved this. I don’t normally read books set in the wartime but this was gripping and I really loved the characters. It kept me turning the pages right until the very end and I really enjoyed it. You can buy the book on Amazon here {affiliate link}.

Without A Hitch by Bettina Hunt – 4/5

Having read Bettina’s debut A Tempting Trio, I knew I was going to read her next book. I loved some of the characters, found others rather annoying (although I think that was the point – Sienna was very irritating for the majority of the book!) and couldn’t wait to see how the weddings of each woman panned out. I’ve ordered the follow up book of the ladies on honeymoon so can’t wait to see what happens. You can buy the book on Amazon here {affiliate link}.

Cherringham (A Cosy Crime Series): The Gentleman Vanishes (Book 30) by Matthew Costello and Neil Richards – 5/5

Yep, I’ve delved back into the Cherringham series! I love this series and find it great for when I need an easygoing read. I really enjoyed this book – I didn’t see it coming and I found the outcome very satisfying. You can buy the book on Amazon here {affiliate link}.

Cherringham (A Cosy Crime Series): Trail of Lies (Book 31) by Matthew Costello and Neil Richards – 4/5

This was an interesting read, telling the tale of three young girls on a hiking trip where only two return home. I had my suspicions from the start and they were founded but it was interesting to see the how and the why and how Jack and Sarah ultimately solved it with some clever detective work.

Cherringham (A Cosy Crime Series): Death Trap (Book 32) by Matthew Costello and Neil Richards – 4/5

Screenshot from my Goodreads app

I always find it interesting when the Cherringham books talk about local businesses and a crime occurs with them. It is fascinating to get to know the residents of the area a little better. I was surprised with the outcome, I must admit. You can buy the book on Amazon here {affiliate link}.

So these are my books 11-15 – what have you been reading recently?
