Reflections on what I am reading

Angel by LJ Ross Banner

Angel by LJ Ross — Latest Read

Just finished Angel by LJ Ross. This is Book 4 in Ross's DCI Ryan Series. Like the previous books in the series, murder and mystery are peppered with romance and humor set amidst the spectacular Northumbrian landscape. Not for everyone, but an enjoyable read.
The Narrows by Micheal Connelly

The Narrows — Latest Read

Finished The Narrows by Michael Connelly last night. This is Book #10 in the Connelly's Harry Bosch series. This 2004 title is actually the sequel to The Poet which was released in 1996.

The Silence — Latest Read

Just finished The Silence by Don DeLillo. I had read a number of articles that recommended DeLillo as a contemporary author worth reading. So when I saw this recently released novel by DeLillo, I added it to my "Want to Read" list.
The Diary of a Man at 50 by Henry James Author and Cover

The Diary of a Man of Fifty — Latest Read

Just hit my reading goal of 26 books for 2020 with The Diary of a Man of Fifty by Henry James. This was a bit of a cheat since it really is only a short story, so I will be doing at least a couple more "real" books before the end of the year.

The Infirmary by LJ Ross — Latest Read

This is the prequel to the DCI Ryan series. This book tells the story of the case and the horrific events that set the stage for DCI Ryan being on Holy Island in Book 1 of the series.
Heavenfield by LJ Ross

Heavenfield by LJ Ross — Latest Read

Just wrapped up Heavenfield by LJ Ross, Book 3 in the DCI Ryan mystery series. I started on the series when someone recommended reading Holy Island, the first book in the series.

Atomic Habits — Latest Read

I recently finished Atomic Habits by James Clear. I am generally not a fan of "self-help" books, but I am trying to add more "what's everyone talking about" books to my reading mix, so I gave this one a deeper look.

Lost Light by Michael Connelly — Latest Read

Finished Lost Light by Michael Connelly last week. It is the ninth book in the Harry Bosch series. I haven't read through a long series from front to back like this in awhile so it has been interesting.

Latest Read — The Eye of the World

Finished The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan recently. This is the first book in the Wheel of Time which will be coming to Amazon Prime later this year.
Olive Kitteridge

Latest Read

Finished this earlier in the year. Will try and post reflections as I finish going forward. Well crafted, but Olive was depressing...
