#amreading A Nest of Vipers, Andrea Camilleri

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

It has been hot enough to cook outside - and I don't mean on a BBQ. It's deathly hot in these parts at the moment, so I am getting limited reading down, and not a lot of posting at all whilst we battle with the trials and tribulations of stinking heat and no water. I will catch up. It has to cool down again one day surely! Meanwhile something from the because I want to read it pile.

Was Reading - Big Red Rock, David Owen

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Promised myself this would be my Boxing Day Test reading this year - which turned out to be the perfect choice, what with that awful wicket.

Was Reading - Now We Are Dead, Logan McRae #10.5

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Took a little break over Christmas / New Year. Did some reading (not enough). Did some work around the farm (too much). Melted in the heat (a lot). Drank some ridiculously lovely wine (never enough). Ate chocolate (mind your own business about how much). Read a Stuart MacBride novel that featured Roberta Steel which made me happy.

From the Blurb:

From the No. 1 bestselling author of the Logan McRae series, comes a standalone spinoff featuring DS Roberta Steel

2017 Wrap Up (Even though it's not over yet people)

I'm behind with everything and bloody hate coming up with Top howevermany's so I'm not pretending to try anymore. Instead, a list of books that just nailed it this year. In no particular order, or quantity, although I have had a go at combining them into geographical locations so you know - result.
