Monthly Wrap Up

April 2008 Wrap-Up

April 2008 Wrap-Up
Here’s my end of the month wrap up:
  1. Sue Grafton, A is for Alibi –> This one was just okay for me; I had a lot of trouble concentrating on this one. I thought that it was hard to get everything in 215 short pages. I will definitely be continuing this series, but overall I think this could have been a better opening novel, 3/5
  2. James Patterson, 3rd Degree –> This book was amazing!! I absolutely loved it! This one is, by far, the best in the series!! I can’t say enough good things about it, 4/5
  3. James Patterson, 4th of July –> This one was not as good as the third one in the series. Perhaps I thought that because I read them back to back when I shouldn’t have. But it was still enjoyable, just not as good as the third one, 4/5
  4. Ann Rule, A Rose for Her Grave & Other True Cases, Crime Files Vol. 1 –> Personally, I prefer her full length true crime books to this. I found it hard to get everything into twenty pages in the shorter cases featured in this book, 3/5
  5. John Connolly, Dark Hollow –> I didn’t care much for this book at all. I found myself struggling to concentrate and not interested in reading this one much at all. It was just okay for me, I could have skipped it and never missed anything, 3/5
