Here we go again. I’m not going to stop reading any time soon, and at this point it just wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t also keep a record of each book. Crazy the things that turn into compulsions. Also, without these posts I’d really have to admit that my blog is dead. So…
The Son- Jo Nesbø: standalone crime /revenge novel by the bestselling Norwegian author. One of those rare books where (almost) everyone gets what’s coming to them in a most satisfying way.
Cockroaches- Jo Nesbø: book two in the Harry Hole series. Norwegian cop thriller that takes place in… Thailand. Just ok, but easy to read.
The Redeemer- Jo Nesbø: book six in the Harry Hole series. Because reading things in order is for suckers.
Nemesis- Jo Nesbø: book four in the series. Refers quite heavily to book 3 (which I haven’t read and which will apparently never be available at the library), as well as foreshadowing the primary altercation to come in book 5 (which I picked up from references in book 6). Reading stuff out of order is such a thrill!
The Devils Star- Jo Nesbø: Harry Hole book 5 (I’m pretty sure that name is pronounced differently in Norwegian and therefore not as awful).
Dark Run- Mike Brooks: super fun, fast adventure. I don’t usually do space sci-fi, but this was compared to Firefly so I had to give it a chance. I was not disappointed.
Dark Sky- Mike Brooks: sequel to Dark Run, following the adventures of the ship Keiko and her crew of misfits and scoundrels as they get caught up on opposite sides of a revolution.
Dark Deeds- Mike Brooks: book 3 with Ichabod Drift and the crew of the spaceship Keiko. Hopefully not the last book, as it ended on kind of a downer.
Alcatraz vs The Evil Librarians: I bought this book for Jack for Christmas, and I primarily read it because I was out of books and the library was closed. Definitely for kids, but amusing.
The Wanted- Robert Crais: Elvis Cold book 17. This time the PI is tasked with finding a teenager who burglarized the wrong house before a pair of killers do.
The Redbreast- Jo Nesbø: finally managed to get Harry Hole book 3 (turns out I had paused my hold like an amateur). So I can check it off my list, even though I pretty much knew the critical elements based on already reading the subsequent books.
Righteous- Joe Ide: sequel to IQ, about a sort of inner city Sherlock Holmes. Entertaining, intricate plot, but it jumps around in time without any indication, so that took a little mental focus.
