Reading Recap | October 2017

November 6, 2017 | No comments


October was a great reading month. I read 26 books, and although quite a few of them were quite forgettable (or even boring) there were also lots of 4 star books. The three highlights this month were:

One Grave too Many by Beverly Connor ★★★★
Ebook | 404 pages (Read October 16-17)

First in a series about Diane Fallon, a museum director and forensic anthropologist in Maryland. I have a soft spot for crime series with forensic themes, and this one is my newest favourite. I loved it so much that I read five more books from the series this month, and none of them disappointed.

The Thirst by Jo Nesbø ★★★★
Ebook | 536 pages (Read October 10-11)

I have had mixed opinions about the Harry Hole books, but the latest one (published earlier this year) was a page turner and definitely my favourite of the series.

The Executioner by Chris Carter ★★★★
Ebook | 400 pages (Read October 10-15)

The second book about LAPD Detective Robert Hunter did not disappoint. This time, Hunter investigates a series of murder where the victims are killed by their greatest fear.
