Thread: Read anything good lately? (II)

  1. @bixby211, so many of these are on my fave list. Especially Evanovich. Those Plum novels are my escape! They've got to be winding down though. I read somewhere that JE only has a contract for 3 more books. If so, I wonder if Stephanie will ever grow up? Ranger or Morelli?

    Sara Blaedel, author of the #1 international bestseller The Forgotten Girls--which was roundly praised as "gripping" with "uncompromising realism" (Washington Post) and "tautly suspenseful" (BookPage)--returns with the thrilling next book in her series featuring police investigator Louise Rick.

    THE KILLING FOREST


    Thank you for recommending this author. I just finished The Killing Forest this afternoon and have read 2 others first, Call Me Princess and The Forgotten Girls, mentioned in this thread. Louise Rick series of books, great reads.

    I am a huge fantasy fiction reader. Everything else seems to bore me. I highly suggest Joe Abercrombie. He mixes comedy, gore and fantasy in a very modern way. Also, Brent Weeks is very creative. If you don't mind a little magic in the story his stuff is a good read.

    I just finished the latest James Lee Burke. It was great.


    “Then an event happened that caused him to wonder at the great folly that seemed to govern his life, namely, his attempts to plan and control his future. Most of the events that changed his life had taken place without his consent and at the time had seemed of little consequence. Our destiny didn’t lie in the stars, he told himself, or even in our mettle. It lay in our ability to recognize a gift when it was placed in your hands.”

    Recently read "Sherlock Holmes & Dance of the tiger" by Suzette Hollingsworth. A bit off from the contemporary Sherlock Holmes. Dr. Watson is so lecherous in this. More focused on Holmes intense features instead of good ole deductions. Different read not sure one that would make me want to read another book in this series.

    Reading "The Sympathizer", this years winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. It's about a Vietnamese double agent during the end of the Vietnam war and it's aftermath effects on not only North and South Vietnam but the U.S. also. It's surprisingly well written and reveals many things that I did not know or understand regarding this part of U.S. history.

    A Song of Shadows - John Connolly - terrific next entry in the Charlie Parker series of books. If you haven't read, I would start with the first one, Every Dead Thing, and read my way forward.

    Catch 22 is an amazing book! Everything from 'crab apple cheeks' to the catch itself- genius is right! Crazy genius!

  11. Not sure if this thread is still going but I am in the middle of reading Catch 22! Great book. I actually laugh out loud (not something I do often reading books) but the wit is outstanding.

    Just finished "Beartown" by Frederik Backman. Excellent much more serious in depth story than his best seller "A Man Called Ove". Highly recommend either.

    @tired Mouse @Mrs Parker "i have not read that book (yet) "Catch 22" but I well remember the movie, directed by Mike Nichols, (1970), and, the book is now on my
    "wish list" ! (The movie I assure held my interest.....I guess from the sarcasm....and not expecting nor reading of what the movie was about...LOL. @TiredMouse

    On a more serious note, I am now re-reading the book, "Wash Your Hands" by author Dr. Frederic Saldmann ( translated from French to English) On s'en les mains (2008)
    Weinstein Books ISBN 978-1-60286-049-0 This is due to the current crisis, (where there is now a separate thread on this forum about). Honestly, this book of 193 pages
    is for me a "wake up" call, more now, that when I first read the paperback version, (about 4 years ago). There are many serious facts IMO to read this book.

    Just saying........

  14. For the parents out there: anything by Dr Shefali or Dan Siegel. My two favorite authors these days. For the intuitive/galactic types anything by Gregg Braden. For the shallow types (jk) Jessica Simpson’s new book is pretty interesting lolz!

    Ironically, I started reading a post apocyolyptic series of books called 'Days of Want' by T.L. Payne in January. Not that we are in an apocalyptic time, but the behavior of people is very similar to the behavior from the covid19 reactions.
    Anyway, this was an EMP attack. Really has us thinking about our survival skills. I just read the first 5 and am waiting on 6 to be released. I might wait awhile to pick it up again.
    Now I'm reading the remaining alphabet books by Sue Grafton. I have read all except U and W. It's a shame she passed away before she could write Z. Fun and entertaining private eye books set in the 80s
