Esther (eshchory) | 20 comments So I thought one a month wouldn't be a problem but then not only did I stray from my book diet in January, idiot me decided to pay a visit to the local library and came home with half a dozen books!! *sigh*

Esther (eshchory) | 20 comments 7. Aristotle Detective by Margaret Doody 4 stars - I was a bit generous because this is not really my genre but it was a good mystery, well written with an exciting ending.

Esther (eshchory) | 20 comments 8. A Constellation of Vital Phenomena by Anthony Marra 5 stars - Heart-breaking and the best book I have read in years.

Esther (eshchory) | 20 comments 9. Boys that Bite (Blood Coven Vampire, #1) by Mari Mancusi 3 stars - a fun light read

Esther (eshchory) | 20 comments 10. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke 5 stars one of my favourite books about magic
11. Burial Rites by Hannah Kent 4 stars an excellent evocation of the Iceland and her people in the 19th Century but the story didn't quite sweep me off my feet.

Esther (eshchory) | 20 comments 12. And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini 4 stars - very good but not as wonderful as his previous books.
