What I Read - March 2022

Scarpetta (Kay Scarpetta #16) by Patricia Cornwell:
So Dr. Scarpetta once again leaves her practice to move to another state? Why do we keep doing this? I don’t feel like this is a good follow-up to the last story. It didn’t feel like the threads were carried through. Frustrating. Going to take a break before reading the next one.

The Library of the Dead (Edinburgh Nights #1) by T. L. Huchu:
This book and the next one were impulse buys for me at the book store. They had a small table of buy one get one 50% off near the checkout. I’m a sucker for a deal so, ya know.  This story is of the fantastical murder mystery sort with magic and adventure. A fun read. I’ll for sure be picking up the next one when it comes out.

House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland:
Ok, I did not expect that. This was also a sort of fantasy murder mystery but with a whole different vibe. Interestingly enough, the story also involves a place of the dead. I would say it edges on being a horror read. Not something I would recommend for kids. Really enjoyed it though and finished it in a few days while on vacation.

Dark Matter by Black Crouch:
Really good! It looks like this is being made into a Netflix show and I can see why. The Multiverse seems popular right now and this story does a great job of making sense of it in a, mostly, plausible way. I thought it felt a bit predictable in the first few chapters but it ended up surprising me through the end. You can really feel the emotions (mostly anguish) of the main character as he struggles to find his way. Recommend.
