The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith

I am enjoying J.K. Rowling's works as she writes under the name of Robert Galbraith.

This is the second entry in the Cormoran Strike series (as I hope it will be a series), and I enjoyed it more than the first.

I think Rowling is an excellent story tel...more

This was the June selection for the library mystery book club. I thought I had read Scottoline before, but if I have, I have not read any of the Rosato & Associates books.

I liked the plot. For some reason, I did not like the descriptive language....more

This was hilarious! Even the Table of Contents made me laugh!

If this had been an accompanying text in high school, I probably would have remembered more about mythology. The gods and goddesses were hyper sexual, quirky, and would be on all of the tab...more

Phryne is at it again. This time, she goes "undercover" to work at a women's magazine that employed the dead women...when she was alive, of course.

This is a good way to introduce a cast of characters and their own personal issues. There are red herri...more

Another in the delightful Phryne Fisher series.

My lack of knowledge about cricket probably caused me to drag out the reading of this entry. Phryne, of course, knows cricket, having played some as a child (not professionally, of course).

This was the May selection for our mystery book club. I was unable to attend, but read the book. I liked it, in part because I think J.K. Rowling (aka Galbraith in case someone still doesn't know this) is a good story teller. I like that she is branc...more

“This morning I wake to the blue-white light of an approaching spring in New York: the kind of light that promises it will not be this cold forever.”
Tre Miller Rodriguez, Splitting the Difference: A Heart-Shaped Memoir

Po Bronson
“I think when a reader reads a whole book - which takes six to ten hours - that’s kind of a gift to the author. The gift of close, undivided attention. To who else do we listen so closely for eight straight hours? And when readers give that gift to me, I’m grateful for it.”
Po Bronson

“Substitute 'damn' every time you're inclined to write 'very;' your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be.”
