Recently we went on vacation. One of my highlights of vacation is time to read to my hearts content. 🙂 I brought a whole host of reading for pleasure, and reading for review books along with me. Today I thought it would be fun to share with you my reading for pleasure books. I predominately like to read historical and mystery books. These are the books read lately.
Amazon links used throughout.
I have to admit the Patricia Cornwell book, Port Mortuary, I’ve been reading off and on for the past year. I was talking about it with my lad and he was all like “how can it take you so long to read it mom? You read fast!” I told him I really enjoy Cornwell books but often have to read them slow so I don’t get over-whelmed, or too caught up in the psychological thrill of them. Port Mortuary is an intriguing mystery, but sometimes a bit alarming.
Dan Brown’s Inferno felt very familiar to me like I had read it before, but twists I was expecting didn’t happen. Good read and thought-provoking. Some of the ideas presented elicited good discussion in our family.
Dark Sacred Night is a well-written crime fiction tale. My hubby likes watching Bosch on TV and it’s not my most favourite show, but I’d happily read more Detective Bosch books.
Jack Reacher, Worth Dying For. Oh my, I laughed, I was horrified, I was so intrigued. A good mystery. I was shocked that hubby picked it up and started reading. So not his style, but it was good to hear him laugh as he read this Lee Child’s book.
The German Heiress was such a fascinating read. I really enjoyed it. It was a touch of history, with a smidge of romance, a good dose of fear for the “what might happens”, and a huge sense of relief at the end. Go ahead and read it, you’ll be pleasantly surprised I think.
I haven’t read much Pat Conroy books, Beach Music was my first. Oh, I still don’t really know what I think of this read. It’s so NOT my style. Drama through and through, and most of the time I thought, WHO CARES! But at the same time I wanted to know if he’d finally resolve his feelings and get some healing into his life.
