Just finished the new "Jack Reacher" novel by Lee Child, and I'm now getting into Haiku by Andrew Vachss. I find myself, however, getting geared up for the new "Joe Pike" novel by Robert Crais that's coming out in January, and the new "Hap/Leonard" novel, Devil Red, by Joe R. Lansdale, which is coming out in March.
Right now I am reviewing a book called Desires of the Dead by Kimberly Derting. I am listening to Bloody Jack by L. A. Meyers (its really fun), reading a ebook on my PC called Once in a Full Moon by Ellen Schrieber. All of them are pretty decent reads. :)
I've just finished 2 books this week: "The Giver" by Lois Lowry; and a fantastic new book by a fairly new author which will be coming out this summer. I'm nearly finished with "My Name is Mary Sutter" by Robin Oliveira, and "Guilt by Association" by Marcia Clark. This has been a great week (and weekend) for reading.
My reviews will be up on my blog next week for most of the above-mentioned with the exception of that new book which will be coming out in July. All I have to say about that one is...it's going to be a show-stopper!! Sorry I can't share right now.
"...Marry Sutter" is so interesting and well-written, about a midwife and aspiring lady doctor of civil war times. This is a book I can recommend without reservation to you all.
Marcia Clark's book, "Guilt By Association" is a romp in legal thriller territory with her spicey protagonist whom all of us will love reading more of. I like Marcia Clark, and I've always enjoyed her sense of humor. This is a fun read and a good one.
