Janet | 8 comments 5.The Bookseller of Kabul by Asne Seierstad

6.Day After Night by Anita Diamant. She is such a wonderful author, her characterization is complex but natural. Would definitely recommend her.

A little behind in my reading rate, so I have to get going!

Janet | 8 comments Two extremely different books this time:
7. Blood of the Prodigal (Ohio Amish Mystery, #1) by P.L. Gaus Blood of the Prodigal by P.L.. Gaus
Not a page turner, but I'll try the next in the series, the characters are starting to grow on me.

8. Sh*t My Dad Says by Justin Halpern Shit My Dad Says by Justin Halpern.
I'm going to send this one to my dad - he doesn't read much, but he'll laugh out loud.

Janet | 8 comments 9. Broken English (Ohio Amish Mystery, #2) by P.L. Gaus Broken English by P.L. Gaus
The Amish mystery series is quietly growing on me...

Now if I can only finish some of the books I've half read!

Janet | 8 comments 10. Jack & Jill (Alex Cross, #3) by James Patterson Jack & Jill by James Patterson.

Not a mental stretch, but good entertainment for a week with the flu.

Janet | 8 comments 11. 4th of July by James Patterson 4th of July (Women's Murder Club, #4) by James Patterson

12. Freaky Deaky by Elmore Leonard Freaky Deaky by Elmore Leonard

First time I've read Leonard, didn't realize he was a Michigan author.

Janet | 8 comments 13. Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse, #1) by Charlaine Harris Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris. For book club this month. Not bad, but atypically I like the HBO version better. Don't seem to get enough emotion from her writing, or is it just the first book?

14. Heart and Soul by Maeve Binchy Heart and Soul by Maeve Binchy. In her usual style with interwoven characters.

Next month is mine to choose for book club and I can't decide - any suggestions???
