Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve

I originally came across this book about a decade ago at my local library where it appeared on the discard pile.

Someone who can never have enough books, I took it home, read it, loved it, and completed the series.

Loved it so much I eventually recomm

Contemplating a career change, I recently consulted a career/life coach. She recommended this book after one of our discussions.

So, I'll start by saying that I'm an atheist, non-theist, agnostic (whatever you want to call someone who doesn't subscrib

Blood Line by Lynda La Plante

Clear rating
This book (the seventh installment in the series) kind of felt like a reset, which I guess is inevitable when you get seven books into a series.

As always, Anna proves her abilities as a detective as James Langton watches from afar. Romantically, I fe

In the Still of the Night by Ann Rule
Rate this book
Clear rating
Did not enjoy this as much as other books I've read by Rule. Part of the problem is that the case remains unsolved. Rule has a habit of inserting her own opinions into her books, and that's okay, she's the author after all. However, with an unsolved ...more

Blind Fury by Lynda La Plante

Number 6 in the series...and I'm still not tired of Anna Travis or the supporting cast.

I have to say that I knew well b

Deadly Intent by Lynda La Plante

Book four and I'm still chugging right along.

Overall, I think this is a solid series.

Like installment three, I felt the plot here was a little convoluted and La Plante lets the story get away from her. That said, I'm still enjoying the characters an

Silent Scream by Lynda La Plante

After the last two installments of this series, which I found to be a bit disappointing, I was happy to see La Plante get this series back on track. The plotting here while layered and a bit complex felt more plausible than the last two books which w ...more

Heart Full of Lies by Ann Rule

Clear rating
I enjoy the true crime genre, and I generally enjoy Rule's writing style.

In this particular book, I have to wonder if there was any truth to Liysa Norton's claims against her husband. In a typical "he said, she said" scenario, Rule seems sold on the
