I've been laid up for a week with what may be a pinched nerve in my ankle so I read a lot. The most notable of the lot was Lee Childs' first Jack Reacher novel, "Killing Floor." I found the writing style choppy and a little irritating but it seemed to suit the first-person narrative so I got used to it. But it seems from the excerpt at the back that the next book in the series is third-person but in a similar choppy style. Is that true for the rest?
I also finished "Aunt Dimity Vampire Hunter by Aancy Atherton, which is a semi-paranormal cozy British mystery that was more about the denseness of the "sleuth" than anything else, and "City of Bones" by Sombody Clare which is the first in a multi-volume teen paramal saga that I liked well enough to put the next volume on my shopping list.
Next up is "The Map of Time" by Felix Pala. I've had this one sitting around for a whileut I'm now in the ood for something big and dense and this looks as if it might fit the bill.
All the freebies on my Kindle have been disappointing - I can't get more than 10 - 15 % in before the bad writing or typos or inane dialog scrapes my nerves raw and I give up.
