What I've read since the last link-up:
Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart -
I liked this book, but I didn't love it. I never found myself getting truly stuck into the story or needing to know what happened next. However, I did love the character of Constance Kopp and the fact that much of the story is based on actual events and people. I got a little bored with the pigeons. Not gonna lie. 3.75/5
An entertaining read for crime fiction fans that (as one of our hosts Steph says) passed the time just fine. I liked that most of the characters are flawed and screwed up. I assumed it was going to go one direction, and it went another (I think that's what we call a "twist", folks), and I liked that too. 3.75/5
Meh. It was fine. It just wasn't as endearing as I remembered. The descriptions of the scenery and nature was the best. The characters annoyed me often. 2.75/5
What's up with these .75 ratings this month? I don't know, but just go with me.
4. The Island by Victoria Hislop - This is not a quick read, but it was worth it. So many stories within a story about the culture of Crete, family, love, sacrifice, betrayal, heartache, loyalty, grief, shame, hope, community, and more. I learned about an island that housed a colony of Greeks afflicted with leprosy and the culture of a small Crete village located just across from it...communities that I've never read about in fiction. 4/5
5. I Hear the Sirens in the Street by Adrian McKinty - My second book to read from this series, and my second time to be disappointed. 2.5/5
Currently reading: Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo...and I just looked; I have 11 books that I'm waiting for my turn at the library. We'll see what's next!
I've shown you mine, now you show me yours..............
