Books Read in January

Well, for me, the numbers are outstanding!

However (here it comes)… the first book I actually read in December and just hadn’t posted it yet. (now there are 8)  Of the 8 books left only 3 are over 400 pages so the others were considerably shorter.

January…

1 ..The Hills is Lonely…………….Lillian Beckwith……….(271 pgs)

2 ..A Fatal Likeness……………….Lynn Shepherd……….(363 pgs)

3 ..The Bedlam Detective……………Stephen Gallagher…(305 pgs)

4 ..In the Garden of Beasts…………Erik Larson………….(448 pgs)

5 ..Rattling the Bones……………..Ann Granger………….(320 pgs)

6 ..The Misbegotten………………..Katherine Webb…….(544 pgs)

7 ..What Angels Fear……………….C.S. Harris……………(341 pgs)

8 ..The Complaints…………………Ian Rankin……………(480 pgs)

9 ..Mixing With Murder……………..Ann Granger………..(352 pgs)

I totally expect February to drop drastically. As I look around they are all much larger books and most are biographies or “real life” which don’t keep me reading as often as I am not as anxious to see “what’s happened next?”..

Only one book of the 9 was not fiction and that was “In the Garden of Beasts”. About the US Ambassador sent to live in Germany just at the time Hitler begins his rise.

I have to say I enjoyed all the books for January. I found two new authors: Ann Granger, who has some good characters that I enjoyed, and thanks to Cath, I found Lillian Beckwith. 

For the first book in February (began in January) it was a bust.  I read 85 pages and closed the book and picked up another!  So reading in 2015 is off and running!
