October 2019 Additions to my eBook Stockpile

My leg is healing so well that I have time to do a little catch-up work here on the blog. It's wonderful to have an appendage that's actually beginning to look and act like it's supposed to!

I was much less profligate with my money in October-- a good thing as I began racking up hospital bills at the end of the month!-- and I even managed to get a couple of titles for free. I still find myself reading more on my Kindle than I read physical books. That Kindle is just so easy to pop into my purse that I've gotten spoiled.

I've grouped my additions by genre/subgenre. If you click on the title, you'll be taken to Amazon US for more information about the book.

Let's see what I couldn't resist last month!


Trooper: The Bobcat Who Came in from the Wild by Forrest Bryant Johnson. Set in Nevada.
 Halsey's Typhoon: The True Story of a Fighting Admiral, an Epic Storm, and an Untold Rescue by Bob Drury & Tom Clavin. Set in the South Pacific and purchased because of one of the two stories my grandfather ever shared about his World War II experiences in the Navy.

~~~Police Procedurals~~~

A Perfect Evil by Alex Kava. Set in Nebraska.
The Nightmare by Lars Kepler. Set in Sweden.
The Night Fire by Michael Connelly. Set in California. 

~~~Private Investigator~~~


Under an English Heaven by Alice K. Boatwright. Set in England.

~~~Amateur Sleuth~~~

The Only Clue by Pamela Beason. Set in Washington.

~~~Historical Mystery~~~

Offstage in Nuala by Harriet Steel. Set in Sri Lanka.

It looks as though October was the month for non-fiction, doesn't it? Have you read any of these books? Any comments about them? Did you add any of them to your own wishlists? Which ones? Inquiring minds would love to know!


  1. Was absorbed in The Night Fire for a few days. Up all night, that kind of book. Best parts are the interactions and discussions between Bosch and Ballard. As an interview with author Michael Connelly said, there are glowing reviews about the pairing of these two. Some of the best scenes are when she's wired and talking to a suspect and Harry is outside the building, listening, and sending her texts telling Renee what to do. It all works out quite well. I can't wait a year for the next one.

    1. I read THE NIGHT FIRE while I was in the hospital, and it was so good that it helped keep me from going stir crazy.

  2. Very glad to hear your leg is healing so well, Cathy! I'm so glad you're making progress! And your books look good. Matter of fact, I just finished reading the first of Harriet Steel's Nuala series, myself, and really enjoyed it.

    1. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed the first "Nuala" mystery, Margot!

  3. I am so glad to read that Harry and Renee kept you from going stir crazy.
    I await your reviews or comments about the books on your list. I can't keep up with the library. Am reading Laura Lippman's book, Lady on the Lake, but have about five more on a stack.
    Here's to your leg's improvement.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
