Publisher’s Summary

This much we do know: Sophie Toscan du Plantier was murdered days before Christmas in 1996, her broken body discovered at the edge of her property near the town of Schull in West Cork, Ireland. The rest remains a mystery.
Gripping, yet ever elusive, join the real-life hunt for answers in the year’s first not-to-be-missed, true-crime series. Investigative journalist Sam Bungey and documentarian Jennifer Forde guide listeners through the brutal, unsolved murder and the tangled web of its investigation, while introducing an intricate cast of characters, a provocative prime suspect, and a recovering community whose story begs to be heard.

What I added to my shelf

I’ve been busy working on my AtoZ reading challenge looking for book titles to complete all the letters of the Alphabet and for the letter Z, I chose Zenith.  It is probably the most hyped up book of the year with the most contradicting reviews. Gosh, I hope being curious didn’t kill the cat.

What I finished reading

Red Rising by Pierce Brown.
Strange the Dreamer  It is a very big novel and I tend to forget or lose important details when I only listen to the audiobook but I can’t just read the book and not listen to it. The narrator Steve Wests performance was stellar.

What I got from the Library

Golden Son and Morning Star, were ready to be picked up at the library in LARGE PRINT!
Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone. The synopsis looked interesting and I like Urban Fantasy. My reading is slow these days.

 

Goodreads Synopsis:

13539191.jpgA god has died, and it’s up to Tara, first-year associate in the international necromantic firm of Kelethres, Albrecht, and Ao, to bring Him back to life before His city falls apart.
Her client is Kos, recently deceased fire god of the city of Alt Coulumb. Without Him, the metropolis’s steam generators will shut down, its trains will cease running, and its four million citizens will riot.

Tara’s job: resurrect Kos before chaos sets in. Her only help: Abelard, a chain-smoking priest of the dead god, who’s having an understandable crisis of faith.

When Tara and Abelard discover that Kos was murdered, they have to make a case in Alt Coulumb’s courts—and their quest for the truth endangers their partnership, their lives, and Alt Coulumb’s slim hope of survival.

Set in a phenomenally built world in which justice is a collective force bestowed on a few, craftsmen fly on lightning bolts, and gargoyles can rule cities, Three Parts Dead introduces readers to an ethical landscape in which the line between right and wrong blurs.

  1. Red Rising and Strange the Dreamer are on my TBR list. I’ve been putting them both off because they’re big books. I get impatient with big books because they take me forever to read.

      Hi Aj, I know how you feel. Unless I really like the book from the start, it is hard to continue and personally, these books aren’t the greatest yet are just as good as all the others.

  4. That West Cork True Crime series is interesting, thanks for pointing it out. I don’t really have enough time to try it out, unfortunately, wish I did. But I find the concept interesting. 🙂 Do you plan on following the series?

      I dunno. I like reading crime thrillers once in awhile but this one is based on a true story and that makes it scarier IMO. I read the synopsis and the reviews and listened to the sample and everyone seems to like it though so.

  5. I loved Red Rising, and I have the other two as well (not large print, sadly! That’s so cool that they even have that!), but I have yet to start reading 🙂

      It’s taking me a long time to really get into Golden Son. I don’t like the politics and there hasn’t been much action but I really like the fighting lol

    I am also taking part in the A-Z challenge but it doesn’t seem like I will ever get to the difficult letters yet. I will have to work a plan for that like you have done. Good luck

    I saw the challenged and thought it would be too hard to find some of the letters to use for it. So, I did not participate in it. The challenge I thought went till the end of the year. So you have time if it is that thick. Have a good week reading!

    I read Red Rising a while ago but it was really good. I’ve obviously lost touch with the series though. I need to catch up on this series.
