Books I read in November 2015
Saturn Run by John Sandford and Ctein (library) a science fiction thriller by Sandford with help from Ctein. Moves along fast...if you liked the Martian, try this one. Especially if you don't usually like science fiction.
Make Me by Lee Child (library) the latest Jack Reacher. Bad things happen in a mysterious town called Mother's Rest.
Jim, the Boy by Tony Earley (library) so I was reading a magazine article about the 50 books that represent all 50 states (yeah, I had read most of them already!) But this book was for North Carolina, where I am from!! and I had never heard of it. It was really good and totally reminded me of North Carolina.
The Night Sister by Jennifer McMahon (library) creepy ghost story type book. I am on a quest to read all the books by this author, but they are unsettling.
The Brixton Brothers, The Case of the Case of Mistaken Identity by Mac Barnett This is a kid's book that has been on my to read pile for quite a while and I am finally getting around to reading it. Very cute mystery series book.
The Brixton Brothers, The Ghostwriter Secret by Mac Barnett super cute story and all my Children's Mystery Collector friends ought to read this one!
Mad River by John Sandford I just love these characters in these books. And the action moves so fast....you have to read read read and then it is over and whew, it was such a ride
The One I Left Behind by Jennifer McMahon (library) another creepy book by McMahon, this one concerns a serial killer
361 by Donald Westlake another classic noir thriller worth a look if you like this genre
Island of Lost Girls by Jennifer McMahon (library) When I say I am going to read everything by an author, I am not kidding. Lots of great creepy atmosphere and twists and turns.
Shadow Divers by Robert Kurson (library) That book I read last month about the divers who found the pirate ship, well this one is about their quest to find a German U-boat
Somebody Owes Me Money by Donald E.Westlake Yup, another instance of me reading everything I can get my hands on by one author.
A Pattern of Lies by Charles Todd (library) A Bess Crawford mystery. Bess is a WWI nurse and becomes involved in a mystery through a former patient
Stu Who? Forty Years of Navigating the Minefields of the Music Business by Stu Phillips. Great book about composer and music producer, Stu Phillips, who was behind the music of so many TV shows and TV movies, including Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys! Quincy, Knight Rider, Battlestar Gallactica and many many more.
Long Upon the Land by Margaret Maron (library) A Deborah Knot novel where we learn more about Deborah's mother and why an educated city girl married an older moonshiner
A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullin (library) I loved this book and they made it into a movie. Sherlock Holmes as an old man and he is getting Alzheimers.
