I've been reading a lot lately. Some Danielle Steel - The Apartment, Blue, Magic, Family Ties, Betrayal. Blue was my favorite.

Nora Robert's Chasing Fire - Couldn't get into that. It's about fire jumpers who jump out of planes into the edges of wildfires and try to help extinguish/control.

"The Deep" by Nick Cutter.

I picked it up because it was endorsed by my guy, Stephen King, and I can see why he liked it (very much in his style).

I like it, too, except for the parts where animals suffer - I hate that.

I'm reading a mystery series by 'Ed McBain'. When I started them I did not realize the first of these was written in 1955. And there is a series of 50+ of this 87th Precinct Mysteries.
These are cheap or free Kindle E books. I love being able to read on my puter or on my phone. No matter where I am I have my book with me. Often in places where there is no phone signal but I can still read my current book as long as I have already downloaded it to my phone. TMI I suppose but it workes for me.

I have always loved McBain's 87th Precinct novels.

The Innocent Man - Grisham's first book based on a true story that he told through his Brigance character. It's the story of Ron Williamson who was falsely accused/convicted and put on death row in Oklahoma for almost 10 years. Willamson gets within a few days of lethal injection before he gets a stay of execution and is finally proven innocent. This one will make you doubt the good-old-boys justice system, which is common in the South, big time.

Sycamore Row was really good too.

I'm going to have to try that one.

Come Sundown by Nora Roberts was really good...shades of Patterson's Kiss the Girls.

Where the Crawfish Sing....so very good, not finished yet but have a hard time putting it down, best for 2019 so far

Best book I read in 2018 - The Forgotten Girls by Alexa Steele, free on kindle

From Amazon: "In an elite suburb of New York City, girls are dying. That doesn’t happen in Greenvale, with its immaculate lawns, exclusive yacht clubs and multi-million dollar mansions. But behind its perfect façade, its trimmed hedges and luxury cars, a darkness lies. Girls, dependent on Adderall, outmaneuver each other to get into top colleges, while the mothers’ need to live vicariously only makes it worse."

I have to wonder if the author knew something about what was happening, and has hit the news now, with the celebrity parents (actress from Fuller House, for one) paying big bucks to get their kids into select schools and even paying to have their kids' test scores changed. Paying to have test scores changed is unbelievable .

I usually read the free kindle stuff but ended up buying the sequel to that book. The main character is a female special unit detective and is both tough as nails and still feminine. You have to love her male sidekick too.

I have heard of your book, Cooksie, "Where the Crawdads Sing", since it has received such good reviews. Your added endorsement of it makes me want to read it even more.

I'm reading "In the Woods" by Tana French. It's had mixed reviews by the readers on Goodreads website. I'm only about a quarter of the way in - I like the way she writes.

You're right, Q-Sis. It is Crawdads instead of Crawfish.

I finished it this morning and just loved every minute of it. I hope you'll give it a try. It's pure genius how she weaves details of the insect and bird mating habits into the plot of the story.

One small thing I don't like about reading on kindle is that you only see the title/author once when you choose and load it to the kindle. With a book, you see both title/author every time you pick it up, so I tend to forget those details with kindle. If there is a way to get the title/author to show up on each page, I haven't figured it out.

If you're bored and looking for a good read, I recommend Lots of Little Fires by Celeste Ng. It's a multi-family drama. I'd give it about about at 4+. After I read that, I read her first book All the Little Things I Never Told you but didn't like it as well.

Lots of reading going on in my house

This morning I finished The Secrets of the Little Stones by Melissa Payne. It's a mystery. I don't usually like clairvoyant/ghosty/spooky books, but this one really held my attention.

As usual, the author brings it all together at the end. She left me with one little niggling question, but I don't want to spoil the book for anyone else.

My Mom was a librarian and she taught me to love to read. Since I retired I’m back to reading every day and lately almost all day

Just finished re-reading Tony and Anne Hillermans Navaho police series with Joe Leaphorn, all 23 of them. Recently Rex Stout and Isaac Asimov. Working on a thriller by David Archer today.
