Just finished reviewing Provoke Me by Cari Quinn. It's a super steamy but smart erotic romance - if you're interested, check it out!
Chernobyl Murders by Michael Beres.
In Soldier Hill by Phil Rossi, two teenage boys endeavor to save a small memorial for a fallen Vietnam War veteran. It's a YA coming of age tale, and one that is written with an impeccable literary style. Please check out my review if you get a chance.
Here are my thoughts on The Stonecutter by Camilla Läckberg. I have read several Scandinavian mysteries the last two years and I have to say that most of them were very good.
Anyone here reads translated books?
I have heard a theory where someone said she reads nothing but foreign books because if they were good enough to be translated into English, they must be excellent.
I have had some exceptions to this rule (and I think that English translators are not doing a very good job - but it's an industry/readers expectation thing) but for the most part she's right.
By the way, I do think translating is an art onto itself.
