Mondays: Mailbox/Whereabouts/Musings

Mailbox Monday has moved over to Knitting and Sundries, for the month of November.


I received only  novel, in the past week, thanks to the author:
1) Blood Over Badge by Wayne Farquhar

The murder of the Mayor of San Francisco’s daughter sets the stage for this intriguing and spellbinding crime thriller. Two police detectives, Jack Paige and Casey Ford are assigned to catch a cold-blooded rapist and killer. In this gritty, realistic tale of homicide, unrelated mysteries of two murderers seem to come together and make little sense. What does a man rotting away behind the stench-enclosed walls of Angola Penitentiary have to do with an evil and cruel rapist and killer now on the run from California to Texas? What is the relationship to the killing of the Mayor’s daughter?

This is very very bad. I am stil reading The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest by Stieg Larsson. My slow reading is not a reflection the novel. Rather the contrary. At least I am reading few pages everyday because of it!

Do you have any special reading that you do as it gets closer to Christmas? If so, tell us about it! And, if not, tell us why not! 


In one word answer, no. I don't really think any festival makes much difference on my reading. Lately, I am only interested in reading anything at any time to get over this MASSIVE reading slump...

Enjoy your new thriller! I haven't read the Larsson series myself yet.

I don't really do a lot of Christmas reading mainly because the books are a bit light and fluffy. However - my book club chooses a Christmas type book for our December read and next week we will vote on a title. :)

I don't read Christmas themed books either. But you're in a reading slump? Oh no! How horrible! Hope you rebound soon! You can check out my MM here.

Blood Over Badge sounds intriguing. Hope you like it! My mailbox is at The Crowded Leaf.

I hope your reading slump goes away soon. Your new book looks like a good thriller. Hang in there!

Marce said...

Blood over Badge looks so GOOD.

I personally can't see a Larsson book being good to get you out of this reading slump babe, i'm cheering for you.

Hope Blood Over Badge grabs your reading attention. Not a holiday themed reader.

Blood Over Badge sounds like a great thriller! And although I only read the first Larsson book so far (the other two are sitting on my desk just willing me to pick them up) .. they're pretty huge and sort of involved, so it DOES take some time to read them, even though it was totally enjoyable to do so!
