Lethal White | Robert Galbraith
post image

The Cuckoo's Calling and this book, Lethal White, are my favorite Cormoran Strike novels. I hope J K Rowling continues to enjoy writing as Robert Galbraith for many more years.

Suzanne Valadon was one of Renoir's models, but she was also a painter. This is her story.

It's always fun to enter the world of Flavia de Luce.

The Lace Reader: A Novel | Brunonia Barry

Lace reading--a family mystery--a woman's mind. I enjoyed this novel.

Life After Life: A Novel | Kate Atkinson

This book was fun to read. You're always wondering, "How's it going to happen this time?".

Behind Her Eyes | Sarah Pinborough

I read a library e-book version of this book. I'm glad I didn't spend money on a hardcover.
What a ridiculous ending!

Good, but disturbing! Not as disturbing as the new Twin Peaks--two episodes, and I'm out.

Wilkie Collins or Charles Dickens? Wilkie Collins wins!

Marie Benedict wrote an interesting story based on the life of Albert Einstein's first wife, Mileva Maric. Albert Einstein may have been a genius, but he appears to have been a terrible husband to Mileva.

With the title, Twelve Drummers Drumming, and a sleuth named Father Christmas, I thought I'd be reading a Christmas-themed cozy. I was mistaken but enjoyed reading the book, nonetheless.

Alan Bradley created a wonderful character, Flavia de Luce. What a fun book to read at Christmastime!

Julian Barnes explores what it was to be Dmitrii Shostakovich and to consider the place of art in life, society and one's soul.

Interesting characters and a fun read.

The Last Painting of Sara de Vos is good but not as enjoyable as B.A. Shapiro's book, The Art Forger. Both stories are about an art forger. This book, however, alternated three time periods. Too many time changes.

Can you believe my good luck? I found this book on a display shelf in the library and couldn't resist checking it out. What a good read!

Inferno: A Novel | Dan Brown

One of the characters in this book is Elizabeth Sinskey. Sounds a lot like Rebecca Schinsky. What a riot!

I enjoyed listening to Simon Vance's audio rendition of The Girl in the Spider's Web. Stieg Larsson created a great character, Lisbeth Salander, and I'm happy that David Lagercrantz has continued writing the Millennium Series.

On Chesil Beach | Ian McEwan

I finished reading my first book of the summer, On Chesil Beach by Ian McEwan. The author used a couple's wedding night as the catalyst for this novel. His writing captured my attention and never let go.

The Sparrow: A Novel | Mary Doria Russell

I never thought I would like science fiction. What is The Sparrow about? Jesuits in space and so much more. Thank you, Ann Kingman, for raving about this book. I'm so glad I finally read it.

HardcoverHearts I also picked it up based on her full throated endorsement! Fantastic read. 3y
