MORE 2022 Summer Book Recommendations:

Here are a few more books and authors I have read over the past year.

Megan Miranda – If you have not figured it out, my favorite genres are thrillers and mysteries. I have read several books by Megan Miranda. They are solid thrillers perfect for the beach and the airport.

Kristin Hannah – I read both The Nightengale and The Four Winds. I really liked The Nightengale. The Four Winds drug on and on for me.

1000 Books to Read Before You Die by James Mustich

I received this book for Christmas. As someone who reads for a hobby and is at that age where bucket lists are being made, I have had a good time going through this book, checking off what I have read, and making plans for what I would like to read.

I read The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler from this list. It was published in 1939. Chandler went on to publish an entire series. “Chandler had an immense stylistic influence on American popular literature. He is considered by many to be a founder, along with Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain and other Black Mask writers, of the hard-boiled school of detective fiction.” (quote from his Amazon biography) It was interesting to read from the beginning of the genre. It was made into a movie with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall – need to look that one up!

This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger – This book was not my favorite, but is a solid read. It is a “journey” book – 4 orphans travel across the country, meeting various people and learning about themselves and others along the way. I am interested in reading some of his other works to see how I like them.
