The Scorch Trials by James Dashner: The second book of “The Maze Runner” series. It took me a while to finish it and I still don’t understand why they have to go through all these trials. Neither do the protagonists in the book though. The behavior of the characters gets more erratic and their mood swings are difficult to follow. Still there are two more books to go and I now want to know what happened with the world. Will keep on reading.
A Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley: The third book of Flavia de Luce, lovable heroine with a keen interest or not to say passion for chemistry that easily surpasses mine after all these years in school. With her observant nature, her reliant bike Gladys and her prefect timing to be on the spot when a murder happens in Bishop’s Lacey, Flavia is one great detective in the making! Together with the sub-plot of two older sisters, an emotionally detached father, the housekeeper Mrs. M and Dodger the gardener in rural England of the 50s makes this one enjoyable read!
Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon: Claire and Jamie are back! Finally! After waiting forever this is the newest installment in a series which caught my heart more than 20 years ago. For all the ones who don’t want to read 1000 pages per book, it has finally been made in to a TV series. Loved the book though as usual and cannot believe it will probably take Mrs. Gabaldon another four years to write the next installment.
This Body of Death by Elizabeth George: An Inspector Lynley novel. I am not really into crime stories but Elizabeth George is a long time favorite of me. After reading one Lynley novel by chance I had to read all her other books in order. And it makes sense to do so. The inspector’s story moves forward with each book. But after book #13 the crimes are getting kind of stale. I don’t know, I just feel there is something missing from the story. So it’s great that a new character has been added to the series. Let’s see where this takes us. Only recommended for avid fans.
