    "Born in Fire and Ice" was a very good read, I'm anxiously awaiting the second book in the series.

    I'm now reading "Moon Over Manifest" by Claire Vanderpool.

    I've read that series on and off for years. It is a bit steamy.

    I started "In the Woods" by Tana French, and I'm most of the way through it. It's quite good.

    I finished "In the Woods" and already bought the second book in the series. Yesterday I started "Camino Island" by John Grisham. Sadly, it isn't another "A Time to Kill" or "The Last Juror."

    Just finished "Killers of the Flower Moon" about the systematic killings of members of the Osage tribe in the 1920's for their oil money. On to something lighter.

    "The Breaking Point". One of the body farm books.

    Just bought "in The Woods" sounds good. mmoetc-would you recommend Killers of the Flower Moon. I have considered it, but haven't purchased yet?

    Thanks

    Disclaimer- I seldom buy a book anymore. That's what my library card is for.

    I found it to be an interesting read. It gave me some insight into a time and culture I wasn't really familiar with. It wasn't a compelling page turner to me but I never felt like I had to force my way through it. Hope that helps.

    I finished Camino Island, and it was not one of John Grisham's best work. I started The Dead Zone by Stephen King. I read it years ago, but it just came out on Audible, and it's read by James Franco. Had to read it again.

    Today I finished liberators by James Wesley rawles, not his best work. Returned it to the library and grabbed a book called "radical" so far it's pretty good, read 136 pages this afternoon.

    I finished "The Dead Zone" and started the second book in the Dublin Murder Squad series- "The Likeness." If it doesn't pick up soon I'm going to move on to another book.

    Just finished A Game of Ghosts the latest Charlie Parker thriller by John Connolly. Series still going strong. If you like private eye, violence with a dash of supernatural highly recommend. But have to start at beginning of series.

    I couldn't finish "The Likeness" and moved on to "All the Ugly and Wonderful Things" by Bryn Greenwood, which was very good. After that I started "Big Little Lies" by Liane Moriarty, which is pretty good.

    I'm on track to complete my 2017 50 book challenge.

    Don't read fantasy, and less Stephen King but real life is Awesome. I am reading BONHOEFFER, BY Eric Metaxas, this man was amazing. a real story. I highly recommend this book, drop King, that man sold his soul to the devil. Good reading... Bye

    Just finished "Golden Prey" by John Sanford. I'd found the last few Prey books a bit stale but the move to the fed. marshall's office might just bring Davenport back to life.

    I'm working through "Janesville". It's an accounting of what happens to a city and people when a GM plant closes after 100 years or so.
