January 2020 Reads

Jan 1 Dear Edward Ann Napolitano
2 Hellbent Gregg Hurwitz
3 The Elephant's Journey Jose Saramago
4 Me & Mr. Cigar Gibby Haynes
5 Misterioso Arne Dahl
6 Rabbits for Food Binnie Kirshenbaum

Another great month of reading.  My two favorites are Dear Edward and Misterioso, but they were all good.  Dear Edward is the perfect read for a book club and everyone else!   A 12-year-old boy is the sole survivor of a plane crash and he's now famous and all alone.  His life changes when he's a bit older and he reads the letters that strangers wrote him.  It's a meditation on survival and a tutorial on how a broken heart can mend.  I love this book so much that I sent it to 5 of my favorite readers;.

Misterioso is the first in a new Swedish crime series.  I read a lot of Scandinavian authors because I enjoy the change in world view.  This is a great series and has been turned into a TV series.  I don't watch TV, so I didn't base my reading on that.  I loved all the characters in this story and hope to follow them on more adventures.

Gregg Hurwitz is a must-read author for me, I've enjoyed each of his Orphan X novels and Hellbent is no exception.  If you haven't read Hurwitz, I suggest starting with the first in the series, Orphan X.
