What I read in July

Thursday, August 01, 2019

The first book I read was "A Fatal Grace" (when I look at my list on Goodreads it shows the most current read first so my screen shot is not in the order that I read them. This is the second book of the INspector Armand Gamache series. It's interesting and good enough that I read the second but I'm not sure I'm into it enough to continue the series.

"Feared" was most AWESOME! But I love Scottoline. She's a great writer and I love the Rosato & DiNunzio series. If you haven't read these then I encourage you to but go back to Book 1 and read them in order. This was one of only two books I was really impressed with last month.

"Never Never" is a new series by James Patterson and a co-author Candice Fox. I've never heard of her but the book sounded interesting. I liked it okay but it's not as good as some of his other books. It was, however, good enough that I read the second book, "Fifty Fifty" (not pictured because I forgot to mark it as read). It's about a cop whose brother has been arrested for being a serial killer. Good concept but it's just missing something that keeps it from being an impressive read.

"The Money Shot" and "A Piece of the World" were both good (not great) but nothing special. "The Chef" had potential but didn't reach it. It took me all month to get that one finshed. I kept laying it down to start something else.

"Seven Stones to Stand of Fall" was BORING! I tried, I quit, and I tried again only to decide life it too short to read boring books. This is twice I have tried to read a Gabaldon book and couldn't finish it. I LOVE her Outlander series but other than that series I am just not a fan.

David Baldacci never fails to catch my interest. "Long Road to Mercy" introduced a new character Atlee Pine an FBI agent whose sister was abducted when they were children. It was a great book. And, obviously, the second book that I found impressive for the month.

I'll be on vacation for a week in August and hope to find some really good books for that time.

    You sound a lot like a friend of mine. She would like nothing better than to spend her whole vacation in a nice quiet scenic spot (like a cabin on a beach) doing lots of reading!
    I haven't read any of the authors you mentioned this month. I agree with you, life is too short to spend it reading a boring book, though I have to admit I read "The Double Helix" by James D Watson (written in 1968) when I was in junior high, which I started thinking it was a mystery book, and finished it even after I discovered it was a book about DNA - it was kind of interesting though.
