RBRC: The Shape of Snakes by Minette Walters

My book for the November Recycled Book Reading Challenge is The Shape of Snakes by Minette Walters. I found this to be a great novel. Well written and the attention to detail as far as reports, articles, letters, and such added a necessary level to the mystery.  The plot is outstanding and the topic tackled…

I really enjoy reading Kathy Reichs because, well, Bones….

Recycled Book Reading Challenge: American Beauty by Zoey Dean

This is my RBRC book for the month of September. I have to start by saying that this was not my kind of book. I think this book is aimed more towards the teen crowd. Apparently this is one book out of a large series. This was more of a Beverly Hills high graduation story,…

Recycled Book Reading Challenge: Rising Sun by Michael Crichton

This 1992 novel by Michael Crichton was a pretty good read. I’m not sure where I managed to pick up this book. As I don’t normally purchase books that have been made into movies, I’m thinking this was something that was passed along to me by a friend. I like detective novels, in small doses….
