Book Journey. Take a moment and go visit!
I promised myself it was only going to be light reading this month.
Last week I started two new crime fiction/mystery series. The first one featured Inspector Montalbano from Sicily in The Shape of Water by Andrea Camilleri. Then it was off to France for the second, The Chalk Circle Man, by Fred Vargas. Johan Theorin's book The Darkest Room was up next -- a most amazing and atmospheric novel, one of my favorites for 2010. And an old favorite, Agatha Christie, made the list with A Caribbean Mystery. Leaving Europe, I went off to Japan for The Master Key, which was written in the 1960s -- an oldie but still very much a goodie. Read but not yet reviewed is Kraken, by China Mieville, which was at times laugh-out-loud funny.
Currently I'm reading Badfellas by Tonino Benacquista, a finalist on the shortlist for the CWA International Dagger Award.
In the reading plans for the week:
Thirteen Hours, by Deon Meyer
The Strange Case of the Composer and His Judge, by Patricia Duncker
The Madonnas of Echo Park, by Brando Skyhorse
so that's that. Happy reading
