Moonlight Reader

Lawyer, mother, avid reader. Game host extraordinaire! Partner in crime to Obsidian Black Plague! My bookish weaknesses include classics, fantasy, YA, and agreeing to read more books than is even remotely possible.

Vacation reading: the short list

The Last Policeman - Ben H. Winters A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harkness The Knife of Never Letting Go - Patrick Ness Wicked Intentions - Elizabeth Hoyt The Lies of Locke Lamora - Scott Lynch Maisie Dobbs - Jacqueline Winspear Exclusively Yours (The Kowalskis) - Shannon Stacey The Bat - Jo Nesbo A Rule Against Murder - Louise Penny

Fantasy/Urban Fantasy:

 

The Last Policeman trilogy by Ben Winters - the final book was just released today.

The All Souls trilogy by Deborah Harkness - the final book was just released today

Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness - this one has been out a while and I already own it.

Gentlemen Bastards by Scott Lynch - I've heard nothing but good things about this one, although the series is not yet complete.

 

 

Romance:

 

Maiden Lane by Elizabeth Hoyt: I read the first of this series ages ago and liked it a lot. It seemed to be a little bit different than a lot of historical romance. This one is on the sixth book, and I can't tell if it is complete. I'm thinking no.

The Kowalski's by Stacey Shannon: this one has about a million books, but it is cheap & looks cute.

 

Mystery:

 

Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear: this one is not complete, but there are a lot of books, so that is OK.

Harry Hole by Jo Nesbo: ongoing, but the early books have been translated and released for an English speaking audience.

Inspector Gamache: I've read the first three of these, and could probably polish off another four over the vacation.

 

That is the short list. Today. I still have about two weeks to settle!
