I too love JK Rowling/Robert Galbraith and Great Courses. If you like history, the World War I great courses was excellent. Lots about the cultural/social/historical context of the war and not just the military side.

I really enjoyed Isaac's Storm when I read it years ago. I went to nursing school in Galveston at the UTMB in the 70's so am familiar with the island. I think it really appealed to me because I was familiar with so many of the landmarks. Such a tragedy.

Another great book about "natural" disasters in the US is "The Worst Hard Time" by Timothy Egan--"The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great American Dust Bowl".

I'm pretty much a non-fiction reader and love memoirs. Right now I'm really enjoying "Tracks" by Robyn Davidson. In the 1970's, when she was a quite young so trekked 1700 miles across the Australian Outback with her dog and four camels. Quite an adventure!

I have Casual Vacancy on the TBR, another JK Rowling. I don't do gruesome, I get enough of that at work, LOL! Will be interested to see your next review post.


We have similar tastes in books! The Cartel is on my list - if I read it I'll let you know whether I liked it. Have you read Devil in the White City by Erik Larson? I really liked it. It too is historical fiction, weaving together 2 stories about the Chicago World's Fair and a (strange) serial murderer lurking about. One thing I really liked about the book was actual correspondence between the architects involved - the difference in the way they spoke and wrote (vs. today's speech) was quite interesting.

Well I learned something from this post - I was totally unaware that JK Rowling was also Robert Galbraith. Interesting! I must see if I can find the first book at our library.

I love the J.K. Rowling/Robert Galbraith books.

I also read The Cartel and didn't like it. I am a fan of Don Winslow [I think this is the first one I didn't like]. I keep a log of books I read and my comment on this one says: "600 pgs of gruesome killing, doublecrossing, US involvement, etc. Very disappointing."
