DECEMBER 2016 - READING LIST AND PICK OF THE MONTH

A year's reading ending with a bit of a damp squib rather than a big bang.....4 books read in the month......4.........WTF !!!!!


Minor consolation they were all very good, even if the paltry month gave me a yearly total of 108  - a dozen short of my annual 120 aim.

They were....

Parnell Hall - Detective (1987) - 5 STARS

Fingers Murphy - Everything I Tell You is a Lie (2011) - 4/5 STARS

Trace Conger - The Shadow Broker (2014) - 4.5 STARS

Jack Clark - Nobody's Angel (2013) - 4.5 STARS

None of have been reviewed as yet, and I expect I'll eventually get around to posting a few thought son each, more for my own amusement than anyone else's

Book of the month - obvious really Parnell Hall's Detective - the opener to a long series from Hall.

More useless trivia......

4 different authors.

3 of the 4 were new-to-me authors........  Jack Clark has been read before.

Gender analysis - no surprises here - all male, nada females


I think all 4 authors hail from the US,

All were fiction, all 4 were Kindle reads.

 

3 were published this decade - with 1 from 1987.

3 of the 8 books were pre-owned! 1 came from the author.

Favourite cover? Fingers Murphy - Everything I Tell You is a Lie

Nobody's Angel is my second favourite cover.

My reads were this long 239 - 128 - 299 - 224
Total page count =  890 (1419 in November)

0 < 50,
0 between 51 < 100,
1 between 101 < 200,
3 between 201 < 300,
0 between 301 < 400,
0 > 400 pages

Trace Conger's The Shadow Broker was the longest @ 299.
