I only managed to finish four books this month:
- Winter Study by Nevada Barr was a good read. I like Barr’s heroine, Anna Pigeon. She works in National Parks, often in parts of the country I am familiar with. This story was not one of my favorites — perhaps because it took place in winter in Lake Superior — but it was definitely worth a read.
- Changer of Worlds by David Weber is actually a short fiction, not all of it by Weber. But once I really got it through my head that the stories took place in Honor Harrington’s world but did not all involve her, I really enjoyed it. I especially enjoyed getting to know more about the tree cat culture.
- Fate of the Kinunir by Robert E. Vardeman was a good read. I wrote about it previously. The characters in this book were what really attracted me to it. The story was good, too, of course.
- Due Justice by Diane Capri was a good read, but I found it is bit implausible. Or maybe I was just jealous. The main character, Willa Carson, is a federal judge. Her husband, a “retired” investment banker now owns and runs a fancy restaurant in the home he inherited on an island in Tampa Bay. The story was good, though. I had not read anything by Capri prior to this, but I probably will read more of her stuff.
Even though it doesn’t look like it, I almost read the six books I wanted to get read this month. Actually, I read four and two halves. I have been reading a book at work and another at home. I’ve already finished one of those halves, so maybe October will be a better month for reading!
