Heather | 131 comments Finished Sudden Death. I'm really liking this series. It's borderline cozy mystery/procedural drama. I'm digg'n it.


message 3: by Karen (new)

Karen Sanchez Just finished Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. I'm really liking a lot of the "banned or challenged" books.


message 4: by Heather (new)

Heather | 131 comments Read another one in the Andy Carpenter series, Play Dead.

Heather | 131 comments Finished Dog Tags. So much for taking a break from this series....

message 11: by Heather (new)

Heather | 131 comments I've done NONE of the reading I planned this month. I've become completely addicted to this series. Anyhoo, I finished a few more:
Unleashed and Hounded by David Rosenfelt.

Hey. If it works, no need to change it. : ) Especially if you're enjoying the books.

Finished Freedom's Choice, the second book in the Catteni series


message 15: by Catherine (new)

Catherine | 35 comments I've just finished dissolution by c j sansom. I know I'm very behind. 2 weeks of having the flu meant I couldn't concentrate on reading as well as being slow.


message 16: by Þórdís (new)

Þórdís (disa80) Finished The Perfect Husband by Lisa Gardner, My Sister's Grave and Her Final Breath by Robert Dugoni
and just finished Creatures of Appetite by Todd Travis which just blew me away.

I always like the fact that reading, unlike so many other things in life, is not a race. As long as you enjoy the book it doesn't matter how long it takes you to read it :)

Keri Phillips  | 167 comments Ive not kept up with all the books ive read. I did just finish Small Great Things. This is a fabulous, thought provoking book by Jodi Picoult. It deals with race, justice, prejudice and privilege .

Finished American Psycho and while I enjoyed it, it took me way longer than it should of and thrown me off pace a bit


message 21: by Jessie Marie (new)

Jessie Marie (jessiemreads) I just finished my audiobook of Anna Dressed in Blood. Though it was a reread for me, it was still pretty good. I love Kendare's inability to care of about norms of YA - she includes some pretty hefty violence, touches on some dark topics and isn't afraid of swear words. But the narrator... he left a lot to be desired. It's never good when you realize that your narrator is reading, rather than performing.


message 22: by Keri (new)

Keri Phillips  | 167 comments Ok. Finally made a list of other books I have read or listened to this month.

Audio books : Prisoner of Azkaban and Vision in White by Nora Roberts. For Nora Roberts, I prefer the actual book, but I enjoyed the re-read. If you haven't listened to Jim Dale narrate the Harry Potter books, you need to get on it now.

Books I didn't enjoy...
Last Seen Leaving by Cale Roehrig
Lizzie's Christmas Escape by Christie Barlow

Books I did enjoy:
Remember by Shandon Dermott
12 Days of Christmas by Debbie Macomber
One Was Lost by Natalie D Richards
Baxter Family Christmas by Karen Kingsbury


message 23: by Heather (new)

Heather | 131 comments Finished Pressed to Death by Kirsten Weiss. The second in a cozy mystery series I've been enjoying. This one was good, but not as good as the last one.

Also finished Deadly Dog Days by Jamie M. Blair. I *think* this is the first in a new cozy mystery series, but I'm not sure. GoodReads doesn't list it in a series, but it seems like it is. It was ok. Not sure I'd continue on with the series, though.

I've pretty much given up on any planned reading for this month. =\

Dont think i will get anything else finished this month, so finally I finished Eragon

Me, too. But it is okay. : )

I just finished up His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik. Super excellent. Reimagined historical fantasy - dragons and the Napoleonic wars. Novik is so good. And Simon Vance rocks as a narrator.


message 28: by Heather (new)

Heather | 131 comments I think I forgot to post that I finished The Twelve Dogs of Christmas by David Rosenfelt. I finished that right after Outfoxed, which has already been added.

I also just finished Knot In My Backyard by Mary Marks. That'll be my last finish this month.

Keri Phillips  | 167 comments I did finally finish Anna dressed in blood. really liked it!
