The only reason it took me more than a day to finish Michael Robotham’s thriller novel Bleed For Me is because I had to sleep sometime. Every time I put it down to eat, sleep, or go about my day, I kept thinking, “Oh I should go finish watching that show” instead of “I should go back and finish reading that book.” I had to remind myself that it was not a dramatic police procedural show that I was in the middle of, but a novel. That’s not to say that I prefer television to reading. Anyone who has read this blog knows that I love to read. It’s just that this book was so gripping, so perfectly paced, so easy to imagine in vivid detail, that I found myself remembering it like a really great episode of Law & Order that I couldn’t wait to get back to after the commercial break.
This is not the first in the Joe O’Loughlin series but if they’re all as good as Bleed for Me, I can’t wait to read them all. I imagine some of the details of the earlier novels may be spoiled for me, having read this one first, but I don’t think I’ll mind. I’m so glad I stumbled upon this one (thanks to NetGalley). I think I may have a new favourite series!
