Just finished reading Ryan's Christmas by LJ Ross. This is the 15th installment in Ross's DCI Ryan series. This is a short quick read that was released on Christmas Day 2019.
Just finished The Last Campaign, the second book in Martin L. Shoemaker's Near-Earth Mystery series. I read the first book, The Last Dance, last year. Since I wasn't sharing each book I was reading then, I thought I would cover them both here.
The Brass Verdict by Michael Connelly is the second book in the Mickey Haller series. Not sure if Haller draws you in the same way that Harry Bosch did, but both books have been ok reads and have book 3, The Reversal, downloaded to read next.
I am getting caught up on both the Bosch and DCI Ryan series that I have been reading, so thought I would look for another mystery series. Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series was recommended and available on KU, so I decided to check it out.
Just finished up Citadel by Marko Kloos, book 3 in his Palladium Wars series. Kloss is known for his military science fiction Frontlines series. All three books have been quick reads. Kloos tends to leave each with key elements unanswered. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
Just finished Borderlands by LJ Ross, Book 14 in the DCI Ryan series. As always in a DCI Ryan story, this story features a stunning setting in Northumberland in the United Kingdom. This time the primary setting is the Otterburn Training Area, a military facility in the Northumberland National Park. The story highlighted the Cheviots, a range of rolling hills straddling the Anglo-Scottish border between Northumberland and the Scottish Borders.
Got to the point in Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch book series where the characters Harry Bosch and Mickey Haller really cross. Decided I would stop and go back and read the Mickey Haller books starting with The Lincoln Lawyer before reading The Crossing.
Finished up Autonomous by Annalee Newitz earlier this week. For the past year, I have been trying to blend more recent works of fiction into my reading list. When I read the blurb, it was obvious the book would be advocating strong political and social positions, but the reviews indicated it was a book worth reading.
Penshaw by LJ Ross is the thirteenth book in her DCI Ryan series. This one takes you into the history of the miners' strike in the 1980s.
Chasing Fireflies by Charles Martin was an interesting summer read. Martin is a Florida author and this 2008 book was ranking pretty consistently on the Kindle lists, so I decided to check it out.
Just finished The Burning Room by Michael Connelly, the 19th book in the Harry Bosch series. Definitely recommended for Bosch fans.
Just finished up Infinity Born by Douglas E. Richards. It is a "near-future science fiction thriller" that explores what could happen if we were able to create a sentient artificial intelligence.
