So I’m reading the 9th Judgement (by James Patterson – 9th book in the Women’s Murder Club Series) – first book since Cameron was born.
I’m half way through because I lay down with Cameron – which means guaranteed longer sleep for him – and read while he slept. I ignored the washing to be done and kitchen that needed cleaning and thumbed my way through yet another thriller.
Reading is soooo familiar and brilliant. It draws me in in an instant and before I know it I’m consumed.
Michael brought this book for me when he saw me stop, wide-eyed when I saw that it had been released.
I love snuggling up to Cammy as he sleeps soundly while my mind is away in a land of murders, court cases and strong female characters.
Hmmm… that sounds more odd than it really is.
I always seem to find inappropriate times to read books. The last James Patterson book I read was when I was pregnant and nannying and it was about nannies who got kidnapped with the children they were caring for and killed while the children were held for ransom.
Now this book is about mothers and their babies being shot whilst shopping.
But! I love James Patterson. Easy to read, short chapters, consistently great story lines and characters.
I do, however, wonder how he spits out these books so quickly.
Anyway, it’s 8 PM and Cameron is sound asleep so I’m off to finish this book…
