Deborah | 598 comments 1. A Dirty Job (Grim Reaper, #1) by Christopher Moore A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore ~ Normal guy, Charlie Asher has been recruited to a new position as a Death Merchant. I really enjoyed the humor in this book, it quite often had me laughing out loud. 4 stars.

Deborah | 598 comments 4. Desperate Passage The Donner Party's Perilous Journey West by Ethan Rarick Desperate Passage: The Donner Party's Perilous Journey West by Ethan Rarick ~ I’ve known about the Donner Party, but not the specifics. I thought the author did a good job of relating their story. 4 stars.

5. The Gods of Guilt (Mickey Haller, #5; Harry Bosch Universe, #25) by Michael Connelly The Gods of Guilt by Michael Connelly ~ I enjoyed this very much. Connelly is one of my favorite authors. 4 stars.

6. The Unremembered Girl by Eliza Maxwell The Unremembered Girl by Eliza Maxwell ~ 4 stars.

Deborah | 598 comments 7. Thicker Than Water (Felix Castor, #4) by Mike Carey Thicker Than Water by Mike Carey ~ This is fourth book in the Felix Castor series and I was a bit disappointed. I didn’t think it was as good as the previous ones and was a bit bored with it at times. 3 stars.

8. The Late Show The Late Show (Renée Ballard, #1; Harry Bosch Universe, #29) by Michael Connelly by Michael Connelly ~ Connelly is one of my favorite authors and I really wanted to love this book, but unfortunately, I didn’t. Not that it was bad, but I guess my expectations were too high. Detective Renee Ballard is basically the female version of Harry Bosch. I’m not giving up on Ballard yet. I read she’ll be teaming up with Bosch in the next book. 3 stars.

9. InStyle Parties The Complete Guide to Easy, Elegant Entertaining All Year Round by The Editors of InStyle InStyle Parties : The Complete Guide to Easy, Elegant Entertaining All Year Round by Editors of InStyle Magazine ~ I’m not the kind of person who likes going to parties or throwing them, so I’m not sure what drew me to this book. I think I just liked the cover and thought, hey, maybe one day I’ll want to have a party. Well, this book didn’t make me one to throw one. Too complicated. What I learned: I’m definitely not a party person. I’ll just get comfy, grab a cup of coffee and read a book. 2 stars for the pretty pictures.

10. The Bell Witch by John F.D. Taff The Bell Witch by John F.D. Taff ~ I like reading a good ghost story. It’s a fictionalized account of a documented poltergeist case that took place in 19th century on a Tennessee farm. It took me awhile to get into it, but once I did, I enjoyed it. 3 stars.

11. The Good Girl by Mary Kubica The Good Girl by Mary Kubica ~ A story about a kidnapped young woman. Meh. I disliked the way this one was written, it skipped around from the past to the present and back again. I loathe that and it’s rare when an author can do it without annoying me. 2 stars.

12. The Pale Horseman (The Saxon Stories, #2) by Bernard Cornwell The Pale Horseman by Bernard Cornwell ~ Book two in the Saxon Stories and it didn’t disappoint, I loved it. Cornwell made me feel like I was right there in the thick of it all. 4 stars.
