Recently read: Peter James – Not dead enough

I’ve just finished reading “Not dead enough” by Peter James. It’s a crime thriller set in Brighton and Hove in the UK, and has plenty of twists although a few of the events were obviously going to happen. It was a very good read though.

Reading: Dragon by Clive Cussler

I’ve been reading Dragon by Clive Cussler – it’s a good book. Plenty of action and despite not having read any other “Dirk Pitt novels” (he’s one of the lead characters) it didn’t seem to matter at all and I was able to still get into the story.

Reading: Aggressor by Andy McNab and The Twelfth Card by Jeffery Deaver

Having finished Nightlord a while back, I’ve since read Andy McNab’s latest – Aggressor.

Another story continuing the adventures of Nick Stone, this time set in America, Australia and Eastern Europe. As always, Andy McNab has delivered something well worth reading, it’s one page after another of tense moments and plenty of action.
I finished it about a week ago and now I’m onto The Twelfth Card by Jeffery Deaver. I don’t think I’ve ever read any of his books before but it was on offer and looked like it might be interesting.

Reading: Nightlord by Garon Whited

I’ve not long started reading Nightlord by Garon Whited. It’s a vampire story set in the present day and written in the form of a diary with the days forming each chapter. After some initial character development, there’s an interesting twist that allows for the story to venture more into a fantasy world.

What I’m reading

Recently I’ve been reading the Bartimaeus Trilogy by Jonathan Stroud. I’ve just finished reading book one, The Amulet of Samarkand, and I’m now onto book two, Golem’s Eye. They’re set in and around London, except it’s not the London that we know, there are magicians ruling the country and magical creatures being summoned to do jobs for them.

Recently read

Just finished reading Persuader by Lee Child. It’s a story about an ex-MP (Military Policeman, not Member of Parliament) who goes around getting involved in all kinds of violent stuff, usually involving at least one government organisation such as ATF,CIA,FBI,DEA,etc. There’s often a fair amount of “whodunit” involved as well.

Artemis Fowl & other books

Artemis Fowl, Artemis Fowl : The Arctic Incident and Artemis Fowl : The Eternity Code – a trilogy worth reading. These stories are full of fairies, goblins, and other races, together with a “Mud Boy” named Artemis Fowl.

Books, books and more books

We visited Leicester the other week on the way back from a daytrip to London and found a bookshop called Borders had sprung up in one of the out-of-town shopping centres.

Reading material

Recently started reading Jonathan Kellerman books and found they’re quite good. The main character is Alex Delaware, a psychologist who helps out the police with cases. Definitely a good read if you like crime/detective type books.
The one I just finished reading was “The Murder Book”.
