July 2008 Wrap-Up

Here’s my end of the month wrap-up:

  1. John Sandford, Invisible Prey –> Really good. I thought this one had some really great twists and turns. I really enjoyed it and really need to catch up on this series more. 4/5
  2. J.F. Freedman, The Disappearance –> I thought that the beginning was incredibly slow. It did pick up some, but I really didn’t enjoy this one all that much, it was just okay. 3/5
  3. Michael Connelly, The Black Echo –> First in the Harry Bosch series. It had a slow start, but the rest of the book made up for the slow start! Glad I finally read this one! 4/5
  4. John Lescroart, Dead Irish –> I enjoyed this one. The first in the Dismas Hardy series. The ending was really good! Looking forward to exploring this series more. 4/5
  5. Alex Kava, The Soul Catcher –> Okay, this one was really great up until the ending … it was AWFUL! There is no other way to say it, the ending was just plain bad. 3/5
  6. Anne Bird, Blood Brother: 33 Reasons My Brother Scott Peterson is Guilty –> I’ve read a few books on the Scott Peterson case, this one was not the best but not the worst. I’m glad I read it, but I wouldn’t really recommend it to people who didn’t follow the case very closely. 3/5
  7. J.A. Jance, Name Withheld –> This one was okay for me. I didn’t really like or dislike it. I’d never read this author before, and I’m afraid to say I’m not going to be trying Jance again. 3/5
  8. James Patterson, The 5th Horseman –> This one is another good installment in the Women’s Murder Club. It’s a quick and enjoyable read! It’s not the best in the series (the 3rd is in my opinion), but I enjoyed it! Looking forward to the 6th in a little while! 4/5
  9. Jeffery Deaver, The Bone Collector –> I enjoyed this one. I found it a little hard to follow in places. But overall it’s a really good book. 4/5
