Book of the month - Gerard Brennan - Wee Danny - the month's only 5 STAR READ!

5 of the 11 rated 4.5 STARS, and the other 5 read rated 4 STARS,

More useless trivia......

11 different authors.

4 of the 11 were new-to-me authors........Simon Maltman, Mark Rogers, Ron McMillan and Friedrich Durrenmatt


7 authors have been enjoyed before.... Paul D. Brazill, Mick Herron and Verge Le Noir - more than once.

I still have unread books from 6 of these on the shelf, in the tubs or on the Kindle.

Gender analysis - no surprises here - 11 male reads, ZERO female


I think 4 authors hail from the US, 3 authors are English, 2 from Northern Ireland, 1 from Scotland and 1 from Switzerland

All 11 were fiction reads,

1 was a collection of short stories, 1 was a short story read that has been published on its own.

10 were published this decade - 3 from this year, 4 from last. Only one book pre-dated this decade - Durrenmatt's The Pledge from 1958, though it was a modern re-issue I read.

2 of the 11 books were pre-owned - 2 came via the publisher, 6 from the authors, 1 was a Net Galley read.

Favourite cover? Thomas Pluck - Bad Boy Boogie




















Mick Herron's The List is my second favourite cover.


My reads were this long - 184 - 352 - 158 - 128 - 17 - 112 - 71 - 261 - 67 - 172 - 160

Total page count =  1682 (1608 in February)

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

Thomas Pluck's Bad Boy Boogie was the longest @ 352.
