November and December 2015

Last year was a rough year for me, I lost my husband, step-mother. and mom.  Blogging wasn't a priority, of course, but I'm getting back into the swing of things in many areas of my life, so I thought I'd do a catch up of my reading.  Here's a two-month report!

Nov 67 The Wrong Man Kate White
68 Did You Ever Have A Family Bill Clegg
69 The Do-Right Lisa Sandlin
70 The Devil's Share Wallace Stroby
71 The Things We Keep Sally Hepworth
72 My Southern Journey Rick Bragg
Dec 73 The Bone Labyrinth James Rollins
74 The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace Jeff Hobbs
75 Slow Horses Mick Herron
76 The Widow Fiona Barton
77 The Assistant Camille Perri
78 Dead Lions Mick Herron

This is going to be brief.  I loved "Did You Ever Have A Family", the story is masterfully told and you don't want to put it down.

I've read all of Wallace Stroby's Crissa Stone series, this last one, The Devil's Share did not disappoint.  Good writing and fast action, what more do you want!

The Things We Keep by Sally Hepworth deals with memory loss at a young age and its affect on everyone in the family.  Well written and warm hearted.

I love Rick Bragg and have read all his memoirs and family stories.  My Southern Journey is a great read.

I know you've probably heard of The Short and Tragic Life of Robert Peace.  Everything you've heard is true.  It's a fabulous accounting of, just as the title says, a short and tragic life.  It made me want to cry.

I have become a fan of Mick Herron.  I've devoured the Slough House series and I highly recommend it.  I'm looking forward to exploring his other work.

So many books, so little time.  Thanks for stopping by.
