Michael Connelly: The Late Show (Renee Ballard, Book 1)

24 Festive Tasks: Door 12 – St. Andrew’s Day, Book:

Andrew was the first apostle; read the first book in a series.  OR:  Andrew and Peter were brothers; read a book about brothers.  OR: Read books about or set in Scotland or by a Scottish author, or set in Charleston, South Carolina (which is where the celebrations as we know them today began – by a group of Scottish expats – according to scotland.org).

The Late Show - Michael Connelly

Listened to this the week before last; I’m claiming it as my St. Andrew’s Day read because it’s the first book in a new series (Renée Ballard).  Review HERE.

I’m not entirely sold on the main investigator, Asey Mayo; he comes across as rather too mannered and the book might have benefitted if the first person […]

Zora Neale Hurston: Dust Tracks on a Road

Definitely the best book I read during the first week of the new year; the New Yorker pretty much nailed it when calling the book “warm, witty, imaginative” and adding “This is a rich and winning book.” I’d (finally) read Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God last year; having now read her autobiography, I recongnize […]
