I’m still on a bit of a mystery kick left over from my June mystery reads but I’ve ventured out and started a couple of other books too.
For mysteries I’m about halfway through The Fourth Man by K.O. Dahl. The mystery had started off quite good and exciting but I somehow lost a bit of steam while reading this one. It’s still good but Frank Frolich, the Detective Inspector of the Oslo Police department has spent quite a bit of time on a suspension of sorts because he got very friendly with a woman who is now wanted in connection with a crime. Oh detective, you knew this was bound to happen.
My other read is The School fo essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister. Hm, I don’t know how to say this but I’m not really loving this book. I know everyone in blogland raved about this one and the premise is great and all but I’m not that into it. I will finish it and who knows maybe I’ll still fall in love with it so let’s see what happens.
Finally, I felt like I needed something a bit different in my mix of reading and I chose How To Read The Air by Dinaw Mengestu. Just started it last night but it’s about a young, Ethiopian couple who’ve spent most of their first year of marriage apart and are now embarking on a road trip to find a new home and a new American identity. I read his debut novel a couple of years ago and really loved it so I expect a lot from this one.
What about you, what are you reading now?
