Have You Read Any Good Books Lately?
« on: February 06, 2017, 06:06:41 PM »
I have been doing a lot of reading.  Every winter I read my books about Laura Ingalls Wilder, and make plans to visit her Rocky Ridge Farm, but I have not gone yet. :D.   Someday I will get there.

In addition to the LIW books, I have some from the library.  Today I finished the new Patricia Cornwell book, Chaos.  I think I have read every book in this series going back quite a few years.  Another one I am ready to start is Arrowood by Laura McHugh. 

We are supposed to have a couple of rainy days, so reading sounds just about perfect to me.   Any recommendations?

I just finished Tim Tebow's book, Shaken.  It was very good.

Just read the CJ Box Joe Pickett series over the end of December and first half of January.  It's about a rural game warden in Wyoming and follows him through the years as he solves mysteries.  I'm also a Patricia Cornwell fan from way back (early 90's!) but it sounds like you've read all of hers already.  Have you ever read the Sue Grafton series?  A is for Alibi an so forth?  Those also began way back and we're now nearing the end of the alphabet.  I like them because they're mysteries before computers and all the high tech stuff--just good old-fashioned detective work.  Now I'm on a non-fiction kick reading gardening stuff and watching youtube videos.

I've read a couple of CJ Box books, but I don't remember which ones.  My mother likes them and has a few so I will check with her on those. 

I like the mysteries too.  I've read the Sue Grafton ones up to a certain point, but can't remember which letter of the alphabet I got to. :D.  A couple more authors I like are Linwood Barclay and Harlen Coben.

Anyone still reading?  I never read for fun until last summer and have now read well over 30 books since then!  Got any good ones you can recommend or anything you have read recently?

I try to read a bit every day.  If I wait until night, I always end up falling asleep.

I was just on my library's website making a list of new books I would like to read.  I listed 53! :o. I wish I had time to read more than I do.

Which authors do you like?  I have been on a mystery/suspense kick reading Lisa Jackson, Meg Gardiner, James Patterson, Harlan Coben, and Linwood Barclay.  I also enjoy the Linda Castillo Amish mysteries.

Hmm, I rarely read in the summer since there are more exciting things to do!
