Right now, I am actually re-reading all of Karin Slaughter's books, as I love them and never managed to read them all in the correct order. I'm up to book 5 I think, and it's such a joy. If only more books could be such fun, easy reads!
What else have I been reading since July? Here's a brief overview:
Criminal and Undone by Karin Slaughter (crime/suspense)
These were the only 2 of her books I hadn't read yet. Like all other books, they were a great read! Not sure what more to say about them, then you should definitely read her books if you enjoy crime novels.
Broken Harbour by Tana French (crime/suspense)
Another author you should check out is Tana French. This is the fourth book of hers I read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. She just writes great, interesting, intriguing crime novels.
Greetings from Jamaica - Wish you were queer (and the sequel) Camptown ladies
by Mari SanGiovanni (romance/comedy/lesbian)
These books were such fun to read!
As I summed it up on Goodreads
Book 1: "It was a fun read. Finished it in one day. I thought the storyline was a little unbelieveble, but it kept me entertained. It was rather funny, with lots of light drama and a great love story thrown in the mix."
Book 2: "I really enjoyed reading this book. It's fast-paced and funny, and you just want to keep on reading. The storyline was very predictable and the cluelessness of the main character annoyed me a bit, but besides that it was a pretty good sequel."
Keeping you a secret by Julie Anne Peters (romance/ya/lesbian)
From Goodreads: "I thought it was going to be a cute love story. It was. But way too much time was spent on the horrors of coming out in high school (complete with getting kicked out the house etc. etc.). I think from now on authors should only write cute lesbian love stories, which can have lots of drama but please no more of the "the world is a cruel and homophobic place" because it's simply too depressing."
Ash by Malinda Lo (fantasy/ya/lesbian)
Not really my cup of tea (i.e., fantasy), but beautifullly written nonetheless. Ash is a lesbian retelling of Cinderella. If you like fantasy or fairytales, you're going to love this book.
Finally I read three crime novels that I thought were rather boring, hard to get through or just plain a waste of time:
A stain on the silence by Andrew Taylor (crime/suspense)
Ritual by Mo Hayder (crime/mystery)
Marked man by William Lashner (crime/suspense)
