After managing to keep this up for quite a few months - I forgot to do May and now I'm late with June....

The Long Con, Barry Weston (Aust)

#amreading Siren of the Waters, Michael Genelin

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Whilst it's a huge privilege to be able to read a lot of review books, every now and again it's nice to treat yourself to one just because you want to read it. Although this is the first in the series, prompted because of a review opportunity with the second.

From the Blurb:

Jana Matinova entered the Czechoslovak police force as a young woman, married an actor, and became a mother. The regime destroyed her husband, their love for one another, and her daughter’s respect for her. But she has never stopped being a seeker of justice. 

The AustCrimeFiction Best of 2015

I'm mathematically challenged at the best of times, and never more so than when greeted by the need to come up with a "list" of a certain number. Okay so that's probably less to do with maths and more to do with a pathological hatred of arbitrary rules. So let's just go with this being the best of list of all the books (currently at 147 or so) that I was fortunate (in the main) to have read in 2015.

Another busy October with slightly improved reading numbers. 

Read and Reviewed this Month:

Crime Fiction

Poison Bay, Belinda Pollard

Television reporter Callie Brown likes safe places with good coffee. But she joins friends from the past on a trek into New Zealand’s most brutal wilderness, in the hope of healing a broken heart.

What she doesn’t know is that someone wants them all dead.

Currently Reading - For the Dignified Dead, Michael Genelin

Author Name: 

Got quite a bit of reading done over the weekend what with the heat and daylight saving meaning I had an extra hour of a night to get a few things done. He's off to Amsterdam middle of this week though so I'm not promising this can / will continue.
