The Memory Police Yoko Ogawa Banner

The Memory Police — Latest Read

My latest read was The Memory Police by Yōko Ogawa. This book was well-received. I was not as "positive" about this book as I expected to be.

Longstone by LJ Ross — Latest Read

Jumped back into murder mysteries after a history read with Longstone by LJ Ross. This is the tenth book of the DCI Ryan series. As usual with Ross, the plot was tight and fast-paced.

1960 by David Pietrusza — Latest Read

1960: LBJ vs. JFK vs. Nixon by David Pietrusza became available in Kindle Unlimited and thought I would give it a read. Not sure I gained much insight that I didn't already have.
Eye of the Needle by Ken Follett Banner

Eye of the Needle by Ken Follett — Latest Read

Just finished "Eye of the Needle" by Ken Follett. Not sure why, but even though his books have been on my "to be read" list several times over the years, I never actually got into one till now.
Seven Bridges by LJ Ross Banner

Seven Bridges by LJ Ross — Latest Read

I finished Book 8 in the DCI Ryan Mysteries series, Seven Bridges by LJ Ross, on the last day of March. That let me hit my goal of 9 books for the first three months of the year.
9 Dragons by Michael Connelly Banner

Just finished "9 Dragons" by Michael Connelly. This one has lots of momentum even for a Connelly story.
