Reading Recap | September 2017

October 4, 2017 | No comments


I finally got over this summer’s reading slump and read 13 books in September. The three highlights this month were all first in new series:

The Gates of Evangeline by Hester Young ★★★★
Ebook | 416 pages (Read September 9-14)

Rory recommended this one to me and it did not disappoint. I’m usually not a big fan of books with a paranormal aspect, but it really worked in this one. I’m hoping my library buys a copy of the sequel The Shimmering Road soon.

The Crucifix Killer by Chris Carter ★★★★
Ebook | 372 pages (Read September 19-22)

I picked this book, the first about LA homicide detective Robert Hunter, on a whim and it was a page turner. I have on good authority that the cases gets more and more gruesome for each book. I cannot wait.

The Late Show by Michael Connelly ★★★★
Ebook | 400 pages (Read September 4-7)

This was a great start to a new series by one of my favourite authors. This time, the main character is a female detective named Renée Ballard, who is working the night shift in Hollywood. She is no Harry Bosch, but I’m definitely looking forward to seeing where this series is going.

The Curse of the Pharaohs by Elizabeth Peters | Death Takes Passage by Sue Henry | The River at Night by Erica Ferencik | The Secret Adversary by Agatha Christie | Knife Creek by Paul Doiron | Two Nights by Kathy Reichs | The Graveyard Apartment by Meiko Koike | Fatal Identity by Marie Force

Little Wolves by Thomas Maltman | Overture to Death by Ngaio Marsh
