Second Half of the Year Has Begun

Finished the review of my last June book!

To be reviewed:

The Nobodies Album - Carolyn Parkhurst  (I liked both of these)
The Darkest Room - Johan Theorin

In progress:
The God of the Hive - Laurie R. King
Heresy - S.J. Parris

On deck: 
Walking to Gatlinburg - Howard Frank Mosher
Citizens of London: Americans Who Stood with Britain in Its Darkest, Finest Hour - Lynne Olson (NF)
Echo Burning - Lee Child
Village of the Ghost Bears - Stan Jones
Hush - Kate White


  1. I hope you enjoyed the Theorin--I really liked it and have his first novel on hand read at some point.

  2. I, too, have the London Citizens book in my reading queue--I read a chapter recently and could hardly put it down. It was recommended by a friend who knows Lynne Olson, apparently she is a gem.

    Halfway through To Serve Them All My Days thanks to you and another friend's recommendation. I absolutely love it.

  3. Danielle - I did like the Theorin and want to read his first novel, as well. It was another one on that "best crime novels" list...which has proven pretty useful.

    Kim - I'm eager to read Citizens of London. More familiar with Edward R. Murrow than with Harriman or Winant and look forward to learning more. I suspect that this may begin another reading itinerary.

    I'm glad you're enjoying To Serve Them All My well deserves its classic status. It was one of those long books that I really didn't want to end.
