Book 8 of 30 completed

Shroud for a Nightingale -- P.D.James

This book was like pulling teeth for me. My first good old fashioned murder mystery --- too old fashioned -- I knew who the killers were before page 50 -- just didn't know why they had done it -- that was revealed in the last 10 pages of the book. Had to make myself finish which is why it took 16 days -- I would pick it up read a few pages then lay it down -- I just kept repeating this pattern til yesterday. SOOOOO glad its done. I have one more book by this author but I'm going to wait on that one for awhile.

I'm starting All the Pretty Girls by J.T. Ellison for my next book.

Beautiful Creatures

The Beautiful Creatures series is on Kindle special today for $2.99 each. What do you guys think? should I get all 4 of them? I don't usually like sequels because sometimes I think the author drags out the storyline. I just finish 11/22/63 and loved it and was looking for something a bit lighter and easy read.

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the P.D. James book. She's one of my favorite authors. Shroud for a Nightingale was one of her first books; maybe you'd like one of her later efforts more? I did feel that she got better with age. Her latest, I think it's called Death at Pemberly, takes place in Jane Austen's era, with her characters Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy. I love Jane Austen, so this book was a double treat for me.

Better luck with your next pick!

Just finished defending Jacob- had read it after it first came out, but had forgotten it mostly...lol! Really enjoyed it, but it also made me really sad. Trying to decide what to read next- almost feel like it should be something light and fluffy, everything has been so heavy lately!
That was book #8 for me.

Hi,

I just put my second book out in paperback.I have a copy of each that I would be willing to raffle off within the group.
One is a young adult paranormal novel called Cemetery Girl. The other, Three Twigs for the Campfire is for a slightly younger audience.
You can see reviews both at Amazon and Goodreads.
If anyone is interested please message me and, as long as there is no pronblem with it, I will pick the names out of a hat or something.

Just finished Defending Jacob. I really enjoyed it. Was surprised by the ending. Didn't see it coming. I give it 4/5.

I'm at deep creek and didn't bring any actual books with me (Killing Lincoln) so I started Reflections in You instead. It will be finished by the time I leave on Monday. According to the "time to left in book" on my kindle I only have 3.5 hours left. Btw, I love that feature!

New Goal 75 books just finished
Book #20 The Litigators by John Grisham
I didn't care of this one 1 1/2 stars - just seemed to drag on and on - feel like it should have been a novella - condensed version of the story may have been easier to swallow. I haven't read a Grisham book in a long time; I was disappointed with this one.

Up next The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson, I loved the first book in the series and I'm looking forward to reading this one.

What a nice offer! I don't have a young child so I will keep myself out of the Three Twigs for the Campfire raffle but I'd like to be included in the Cemetery Girl raffle. Thanks again!

Death at Pemberly is the other book I have of hers. I love the characters from Pride and Prejudice so I was very excited when I found it. I'm still excited to read it -- just going to read some other stuff first and maybe I can be more fair when I read it.

Goal: 52 books this year.

#13 The Cruelest Momth by Louise Penny. Chief Inspector Armand Gamach and Inspector Jean Guy Beauvoir are called back to Three Pines to investigate the murder of a participant in a seance in a "haunted" house. The story is always good. but I salivate at Penny's descriptions of what they eat! I want to be invited to eat at the homes in Three Pines, and especially at the bistro.

I'm going to get off the Penny train and read something different, but I don't know what yet.
I'm flying back to Washington later this week so I'm saving my friend's book til then.
