Updating 2012’s Completed Book List

I haven’t been reading too much over the past few months, but have completed three since the last time I posted a review.

After completing 24 Hours by Greg Iles, I had a lot of trouble finding another book that caught my attention.

“Bones To Ashes” is the sixth book by Kathy Reichs that I have read. In “Bones to Ashes”, forensic anthropologist, Temperance Brennan, has been asked by her former lover, Andrew Ryan, to help him with a case where young girls are going missing and others are turning up dead. While helping out with this case, Brennan is made aware of some bones in New Brunswick ind asked to take a look at them to determine their age and origins. The bones are those of a teenage girl and remind her of her childhood friend, who mysteriously disappeared one summer and who’s disappearance has plagued her for decades.

Like her other books, I loved “Bones To Ashes” and would totally recommend anyone who likes crime, drama and forensics to give it a chance.

I’m not much into audio books, so have been reading primarily in braille. This format is quite limiting though because it means I will often need to wait over a year before the cnib gets around to transcribing it. When I got my iPhone and learned about iBooks, I had thought about getting a book to try, but didn’t get around to doing it until a few weeks ago.

Some friends have been talking a lot about Douglas Adams’ “The Hitch Hiker’s Guide To The Galaxy”, so when one of them sent the eBook my way, I thought it was a perfect time to try out iBooks. I really don’t understand the attraction to books like this one, but for some reason I couldn’t put it away and finished reading after just a few days. I’m not going to take any time to explain what it is about since I am sure most people have read it or have at least heard of it (unlike me). I’ll just finish off by saying, it wasn’t bad and if you need something different, try this book.

The final book I’ve finished reading of late, is “Remember When” by Nora Roberts/JD Robb. This is the first book I’ve read from her Eve Dallas series, but I can definitely say I’ll be reading another.

The book starts out by introducing us to an antiques shop owner named Laine Tavish. She has a secret from her past that she’d like to keep hidden, but a former associate of her father’s enters the shop and brings it all crashing back. After some suspenseful moments and some romance mixed in for good measure, the book takes a turn and we move forward 50 years and meet Laine’s granddaughter Samantha, who has just returned home from a book tour to find her friend dead in her bedroom. It is at this point where we meet, Eve Dallas, a serious “I take no shit from anyone” NYPD Lieutenant, who has been assigned to the case.

I hope to be a little better from now on at updating the blog on what I am reading, but as usual, no promises 🙂
