January 2017 Reading Wrap Up

Hello there,

Today I will share with you all the books I’ve read this month so far. With our remainder of our Christmas break, our train trip to Kansas City last week and my cold this week, I’ve managed to read quite a few books already.

I read two nonfiction titles, In Good Company by Carol Burnett for library book club, and Unstuffed: Decluttering Your Home, Mind & Soul by Ruth Soukup. I enjoyed the Carol Burnett book well enough, but probably wouldn’t have read it except for library book club. I gained some new ideas from Unstuffed which I’ll implement….as soon as I clear off some counters, go through some piles and file some papers….

For fiction, I read six titles including: two by a new favorite author, Patricia Wentworth: The Alington Inheritance and the Grey Mask. Patricia Wentworth was an author from 1910 to 1960. She was a British crime author, but not as famous as Agatha Christie. I am now reading through her list, so you will see a lot of her titles this year 🙂

As you know I’m fascinated by WWII, so one title, Girl in the Blue Coat by Monica Hesse was related to that topic. A Jewish girl has gone missing and it’s Hanneke’s task to find her before it’s too late. This story takes place in Amsterdam, 1943.

Other books I read were Foreign Agent by Brad Thor, a Scot Harvath story. I enjoyed the thrill of him going after the bad guys, but man, I was glad it was fiction. 🙂

I also read Paranoia by Joseph Finder which was a great book, except for the unnecessary language which I can skim over. This book had a great twist at the end and a very good plot about being a company spy. It has been made into a movie, but I haven’t seen it.

Guidebook to Murder: A Tourist Trap Mystery by Lynn Cahoon took place in a small California town and is the first of a series. I will probably read more. Guidebook to Murder

I’m in the middle of another book, but will finish by month’s end; Death Dangles a Participle by E. E. Kenndey, which is a slow-paced mystery that takes place in upper New York state.

That wraps things up for this month!

Happy reading!
