Book of the month - Ryan Bracha - After Call Work: Gross Misconduct  - the month's only 5 STAR READ!

4 of the 13 rated 4.5 STARS, 7 at 4 STARS, a 1 - a historical tale at 3 STARS!

More useless trivia......

10 different authors, including a co-authored book Bay of Martyrs.

7 of the 10 were new-to-me authors.......Ian Ayris, Paul Heatley, Sam Blake, Alis Hawkins, Matt Neal, Ryan Bracha and A. P. Bateman

3 authors have been enjoyed before....... Keith Nixon a few times, Tony Black and Roger A. Price once. 

I still have unread books from 5 of these on the shelf, in the tubs or on the Kindle...Tony Black, Keith Nixon, Roger A. Price and Paul Heatley

Gender analysis - male reads, 2 female - 2 more than last month.


I think 8 authors are English, 1 from Wales and the co-authored book was by a couple of Australians, though I don't know if Tony Black considers himself an Aussie or a Scot - Aussie by birth, but grew up in Scotland.

All 13 were fiction reads - 11 novels and 2 novellas,


All were published this decade - 4 from this year, 4 from 2016, 1 - 2015, 1 - 2014 and 1 from 2013.

9 of the 13 books were pre-owned - 3 came via the publisher and 1 from the author,

Favourite cover? Bay of Martyrs - Tony Black and Matt Neal






















Alis Hawkins and None So Blind is my second favourite.


My reads were this long - 271 - 162 - 394 - 304 - 299 - 176 - 208 - 46 - 58 - 167 - 218 - 234 - 360

Total page count =  2897 (3682 in April)

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

Sam Blake's Little Bones was the longest @ 394.
