Reading List 2023

Elly Griffiths - The Night Hawks (4.5 / 5) This is a fantastic, most recent Ruth Galloway series book, it kept me reading steadily and I very much enjoyed it!

Patricia Cornwell - Livid  (3.5 / 5) This is the most recent Kay Scarpetta book. Here's the thing. It was interesting as the plot line was developing and was pretty scary thinking about the possible new weapons that are being developed out there in the world. However, again, I felt like the ending was rushed and too easily wrapped up and explained. I wasn't all that impressed with the Cornwell book before this one, Autopsy, and may have to rethink whether I'm still a fan. 

Peter Swanson - Eight Perfect Murders (4/5). This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I enjoyed it. I would read more of his.

Jonathan Kellerman- The Wedding Guest (3/5)

Peter James- The House on Cold Hill  (3/5) I liked this book right up to the last couple of chapters. The ending felt rushed and ridiculous.

Peter Swanson-  Nine Lives   (3.5/5) This is the second Swanson book I have read recently. I liked the first one, but in this one, I realized that the author mentions the same things he did in the first (references to Agatha Christie mysteries for example). This book is not a continuation of "Eight Perfect Murders" and does not have the same characters, so I started to wonder why he resorted to the same references. However, I do like the mystery aspect, so I will likely give him another chance and read one more of his books to see if it's a constant thing for him or not.
