Reading Recap | 125

December 19, 2016 | 6 comments


The best book I finished last week was The Blackhouse by Peter May (★★★★). It is the first in a trilogy about Detective Inspector Fin Macleod in Edinburgh and I will definitely read the rest of the series.

The worst read of the week (and among the worst of the year) was Home For Christmas by Nora Roberts (★). This short story set in New Hampshire was boring, predictable, and definitely not worth reading.

Last week I also listened to Déjà Dead (★★★), Deadly Decisions (★★★), and Fatal Voyage (★★★) by Kathy Reichs, all from her series about forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan. I didn’t have very high expectations, because most of the other books I’ve read from the series have been kind of bland, but they were all good and I’ll continue with the audiobooks.


This week I am reading the Swedish Classic Juloriatoriet (The Christmas Oratorio) by Göran Tunström which follows a family over three generations.

I’m planning on listening to two other classics: Great Expectations by Charles Dickens and Grimm’s Fairy Tales by The Brothers Grimm.

I’m also going to listen to Bare Bones by Kathy Reichs, the sixth book about forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan.
