We all have a pile of books that one day we’ll get around to reading. Well, I hope we all have and it’s not just me. This will be a regular update on books I think are worth reading.
I’m going to add a few here that I’ve got waiting patiently to be read, I’m hoping if you have read any of them that you will let me know whether they should move up or down the pile, I’ll be adding a few books that look interesting too and will be added to the pile in the future.
The Watcher by Ross Armstrong. This was a book I picked up when I got an offer of buying one and getting another book really cheap. I liked the look of it as soon as I picked it up but still it sits in the ever growing pile of books awaiting my attention. Binoculars and a dead body…
Andorra Pett and the Oort Cloud Cafe by Richard Dee. This looks too good not to add to my TBR file. Meet Andorra Pett; with her trusty sidekick, she’s taken over a derelict café. On a mining station. It just happens to be orbiting Saturn!
She’s hoping for a fresh start, away from all the drama of her old life. It’s a chance to relax and start again in a place where nobody knows anything about her or her past.
But the café holds a secret, and secrets have a habit of coming out; whether you want them to or not. And being accident prone doesn’t help. The more you try to pretend that you know what’s going on, the worse it gets.
Andorra’s plans for peace and quiet get lost amid the revelations and skulduggery and she soon realises that the fate of the whole station lies in her hapless hands.
In space, you can still trip over your feet; the question is, will you land upright?
Richard Dee has a gift for creating fast-paced, funny, believable stories, and this first-person cosy mystery is space opera at its best.
When the Wind Blows by James Patterson. I honestly believe that every TBR file must have a James Patterson in it. I just love his books, this one is waiting patiently in line, but when I want a quick, excellent, action packed read this will be the one I’ll go for.
Short and not always sweet by Dorinda Duclos. It’s always nice to have a book of short stories to pick up when you just don’t feel like a full on novel. Imagine yourself being lost in a faraway land, or sailing on a pirate ship. Perhaps you’ll find yourself in a predicament, or a romantic rendezvous. From passages to longer, more detailed stories, these are writings that are sure to capture your imagination and evoke emotions, from sadness, to madness, to happiness and beyond.
