You are so right! She's my favorite author.
Do you prefer Thomas and Charlotte Pitt or William Monk? I can't decide. Have you read her WWI series? It's only five books, and she says she's not going to expand that series - I hope she changes her mind. She also writes a short Christmas novel each year featuring one of the more minor recurring characters from either the Pitt or Monk series.

In case you hadn't heard, the newest Thomas Pitt book comes out in hardback on April 16 or delivered to your Kindle on April 9

Just saw a commercial for Under the Dome. Looks like they are making a tv series of it. Not sure how it can be a series, so maybe a mini series?

I will try for a goal of 24, so thats 2 a month.

I usually read books I win from blogs.

Somehow I never manage to win anything from Goodreads.

Dont know what I can get from the library. They are having a major move and relocation during construction soon I think.
Welcome and happy reading!

Book #6 out of 30:

Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen by Serena Valentino

A quick read - read it in a day and half. This book gives a possible explanation as to just how the Evil Queen came to be so evil. It was an okay read. I watch "Once Upon a Time" so I couldn't help but think of Regina throughout the entire book, lol.

Just started Fluke: Or Now I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings by Christopher Moore. Not fond of the author's writing style so far, but the plotline has me intrigued.

#10 Defending Jacob by William Landay

I really liked this book. It kept my interest throughout, and it definitely had some twists that I didn't see coming. I am really glad I saw the recommendation on this board and read it.

Book #10 Ruby By Ruth Langan

Almost done with this series. So, Ruby is the last of Onyx's daughters and her personality is almost like her three sisters. She is rebellious and seeks her own type of justice (petite vengeance in which she steals small things from people who do others wrong) like Diamond, insecure about her childhood like Pearl and flirtatious like Jade. To be fair about Ruby though, her mother taught her to be a flirt and get out of trouble through charm. When I first read about her and the tight clothes she wore and the way she acted I thought she was a huge flirt and not to be taken seriously but in her own book, another side is shown as Ruby can be hard-working, generous to those who the town forgot and wanting to belong to the town of Hanging Tree as she never had in her childhood.

Anyways, the hero Quent Regan is the town marshal and is a very good lawmen. He is tracking down a killer who stole his badge. Of course (surprise surprise) he has a past but unlike others...he used this as an inspiration to help others.Of course, Quent and Ruby clash but it is apparent from even the first book that they are flirts who love each other. Of course, they find they love one another but the book has marked differences from the other books in the Jewel series.

I actually like Madeline, Ruby's mother. She is dead but the flashbacks shows a woman who could have moved with Onyx but like him, valued her freedom and so their relationship worked. He could do what he liked and so could she. Madeline's wasn't always waiting for Onyx, she made a life of her own with her own rules.

A Dash of Murder by Teresa Trent

From Goodreads: A Mystery for Ghost Hunters!
When Betsy's Aunt Maggie wants to drag her along on a ghost hunting excursion at the local abandoned tuberculosis hospital she isn't sure she quite believes in spirits. When she comes upon a fresh spirit in the form of a body she starts to rethink about what is really haunting the hospital.

I liked it. A cute quick read with likable characters.

I'm lagging. I've finished Horns by Joe Hill, and Gone Girl since I last posted. It was slow getting into Gone Girl. Now I'm looking for something new to read. Any suggestions? I don't like romance, not a 50 Shades person.

Just finished in the woods by Tana French- stayed up late last night to read it, it was great! Very suspenseful, yet not unbelievable. This is the first in a series, and I had read where somebody was talking about how great book 2 was, so I decided to try the series out. I've also seen this author on a lot of articles comparing her style to Gillian Flynn (gone girl)- its similar, not quite as dark. Also reminds me of Dennis Lehane. Highly recommend!

Those of you that have read Gone Girl & want to read about even crazier people, read her Sharp Objects book. Talk about screwed up!
