Heh, there wasn’t much reading done in June. Too much time on other things that couldn’t be ignored offline. This is what I get for announcing reading plans in public. I seldom ever make my goals. I won’t announce my plans for July as I haven’t any (changed my mind about that) Will see what develops. My tiny list after the break.

In case you missed it, I read Jussi Adler-Olsen’s third book in the Department Q series, A CONSPIRACY OF FAITH. I thought it was a good solid read but felt that his first book in the series, THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES had a better story and was more suspenseful. His second book, THE ABSENT ONE was a DNF. So, the third book was an improvement. Look forward to the next book but I won’t be so quick to buy next time around.

Under-appreciated writer Stan Jones book, SHAMAN PASS was a quick read.  It’s the second book in the series after WHITE SKY, BLACK ICE. It’s set in the Arctic tundra and follows Alaskan State Trooper, Nathan Active. This police procedural series is so far rich in atmosphere along with sporadic use of the Inupiat language to provide authenticity. There’s also cultural beliefs and customs of the Inupiat people that was interesting. The series isn’t overly violent and a quick read.  I plan to read more.

Last book I read for June was Karin Slaughter’s latest release, UNSEEN in the Will Trent series that started with TRIPTYCH.  I admit I rushed to finish this book so I can count it for June. ::shrug:: It was a good story, very suspenseful. The story moved fast enough and had  enough interesting characters in it to distract me from any problems I had with it.

That’s it. I am organizing my ebook library so that I can read more of the books I bought sometime ago. My plans for reading next month will be books I’ve always wanted to read. Early Ken Bruen Brant series, Andrew Vachss Burke series and more.

As always, thanks for reading.
