August Book Log

50. "R is for Richocet" by Sue Grafton 352 pages
51. "K is for Killer" by Sue Grafton 292 pages
52. "The Hours" by Michael Cunningham 226 pages
53. "Things Fall Apart" by Chunua Achebe 209 pages
54. "Artemis Fowl and the Arctic Incident" by Eoin Colfer 398 pages
55. "Frankenstein: The Prodigal Son" by Dean Koontz 469 pages
56. "Frankenstein: City of Night" by Dean Koontz 455 pages
57. "Get Shorty" by Elmore Leonard 292 pages
58. "7th Heaven" by James Patterson (audio book)
59. "Definately Dead" by Charlaine Harris 495 pages (large print)
60. "Blood Noir" by Laurell K. Hamilton 340 pages

I was so not impressed with "Blood Noir." I liked reading the Anita Blake series because Anita was tough as nails and had scruples. I didn't mind some sex in Hamilton's books, but this last one reads like a porn from the opening chapter to the very end. There is so much sex that there wasn't any room for Anita to be a bad ass. I was not impressed.

I liked the two Frankenstein books. Koontz was supposed to release the last one in 2006 but as yet there is still no sign of it. It's a shame because I would love to read it.

I have three more books to read and I'm finished with Sue Grafton's alphabet series. Well, until she writes the next one.

"The Hours," "Things Come Undone" and "Get Shorty" were all on the 1001 books to read before you die list. I didn't like "The Hours" as much as "A Home At the End of the World". "Things Come Undone" was almost painful to read towards the end. It seems to drag on in parts. I liked "Get Shorty," Elmore Leonard has an laid back writing style that is easy to read.
