Harry Bosch is just good in his job that it is a joy to see him work in The Drop.

4-4.5 stars

 

Good books too 

 

Fleabag - Helen Stephens,Helen Stephens  Changes - Jim Butcher   Home - Harlan Coben 

 The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains - Eddie Campbell,Neil Gaiman  Demon Road 02. Desolation - Derek Landy  

 

Fleabag is a children book. Got my attention when I found it on YouTube read by Tom Hardy. 

 

Changes is on how Dresden found out he has a daughter. Really good story. 

 

Home is about a kidnapped boy returned as a young man. Is he real, or is it a fake? 

 

The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains is a story by Neil Gaiman. A dark story about a man going into a mountain to confront the killer of his daughter. 

 

Amber continued her journey in Desolation. She is a demon by birth and still running away from the parents who tried to eat her.

2.5-3 stars

 

Broken Promise: A Thriller - Linwood Barclay  The Wolves of Midwinter - Anne Rice  

 

David is a journalist who lost his wife and then his job. He is helping to discover where his cousin got her baby. Not a bright story, quite a bit of it doesn't make any sense.  The betrayal  is illogical and not enough motive to do so. 

 

Reuben is the werewolf. The story could be interesting. Unfortunately, it got distracted on party and stuff. Not much is being developed to move the story along.

0.5-1 star

 

Horrible read. Just awful.

 

Binti - Nnedi Okorafor  Goodnight Nobody - Jennifer Weiner  

 

Binti has the superstition that is unfit in sci-fi story. Also, the story does not make sense on why Binti is the one who would make peace after the non-humans kill everyone on board. The story does not make sense. 

 

Kate Klein in Goodnight Nobody is a stupid woman, married with 3 children. She found a dead body and go about to find out who is the killer. But she is so stupid, illogical. The writers made all the women character stupid and desperate for sex. And they make look likes 2 dimensions character that are uninteresting. The most awful book I read in ages. 

 

Overall, still a pretty good month.
