I loved that book.  I only read hardcovered books since most of the books I read are in the 400 & up pgs. and paperbacks of that size are hard to read while eating.  Also, they don't hold up well.

 

But that's just one of my quirks (of many)

I just finished The Nightingale (Hardcover) by Kristin Hannah.  It about the French covert reistance to the NAZI take over of their Country.

Well written and well worth reading.

I got completely carried away with English history, via Philippa Gregory.  Read all her books.  Maybe I should get started on French history.  However my son informed me he bought 10 books of a series by Robert Jordan.

 

I wish I could read a book with each eyeball, although I'm doing pretty good reading My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell you She's Sorry by Fredrik Backman, and, also, Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind.

Have just startd The Enemies of Versailles by Sallie Christie.  Fun and  somewhat light reading.  Learning a bit more about French history than I knew before.  French history has never been my favorite  and this is a fun way to learn..  Not too surprising the revolution followed soon after Louis XV.

Oh Boy!  Now you are into one of my favorites!  Author C.J Box and his Joe Pickett series.  I really like these a lot.  The author has lived all his life in Wyoming, so writes with great personal knowledge of all things Wyoming.  Great stories and character development.

I've read all the Sue Grafton books in order over a number of years and when she passed away, just shortly after I'd finished Y is for Yesterday, I thought, she must have been ailing when she wrote it and that explained why it just dragged on and on and on.  There was so much in that book that didn't make a lot of sense and it was a sad end to her series.  Still, no wish to criticize her, I did enjoy the majority of the Kinsey Milhone series.

 

I've been reading the Joe Pickett books, a series about a game warden in Wyoming, by C. J. Box.  There are things I don't like and things I do, the author is currently up to the sixteenth in the series, having released about one a year, going back to about 2001.  I've read the first ten and liked the tenth one the best of all.  

 

I've started The Secret History by Donna Tartt, we'll see.

So many people love Sue Grafton books and I am one of them.  I felt awful that she couldn't do the Z letter because all I could think of was zebras & wondered what she was coming up with.  Unfortunately, she couldn't finish the series because of her death but I wonder what Martin's excuse is for not giving us the last 2 Game of Thrones which he had promised.

 

I read the 5 and then, like everyone else, was left dangling.

Am reading P is for Peril.  This is book number 16 in Sue Grafton's series of mysteries.  Each of her book titles starts with a letter of the alphabet.  The first one was A is for Alibi,, and so on.  The continuing character is a female,  twice divorced, former cop, private investigator.

 

Grafton's last alphabet based book ends with "Y" - as that one was published in August last year - She died last December.  RIP Sue.  You'll always be around thru people like me enjoying your books.
