Finished Cragside by LJ Ross over the holiday weekend. This was a quick read. Like most of LJ Ross's work, not the deepest, but a relaxing, enjoyable read.
Just finished The Three Body Problem by Cixin Liu. Unfortunately, another "high acclaimed" Hugo Award winner that disappoints.
Just finished Echo Park by Michael Connelly. Another well constructed, fast paced story. There were some compelling scenes and specific lines that really stood out.
Just finished High Force by LJ Ross. The plot in this one is fairly intense since one of the main characters has been taken by a serial killer and the pace is fast.
Just finished The Closers by Michael Connelly. This is Book 11 in the Harry Bosch series. It is, essentially, a series reboot that brings Bosch back into the LAPD and returns to Connelly's classic third person narrative style.
Just finished the 2020 Hugo Award winner for Best Novel, A Memory Called Empire by Arkady Martine. Character development, plot line, world-building were pretty well done, but fell short as a "great 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
