Reading progress update: I've read 52 out of 336 pages.
The River of Kings: A Novel - Barbara Brown Taylor

So slow. I've been on this for a week and only got 50 pages. I don't know if it's life or lack of drive that are the cause. Life has been running at a fiendish pace, I tired, burned out and just can't get more than one page read before I fall to sleep. The story is fascinating, but I am spent. I may need to pick something lighter up, and slowly march through this when I can

The Lone Wolf
An Education in Punishment: A Somerset Novel (Somerset Series Book 6) - Isadora Brown

True to form, Isadora Brown has given us another well-written, fast-paced read in the Somerset Series. In this sixth book in the series, we find out who and what is behind the NDS. The Lone Wolf has been someone to fear for a while now, but as Aubrey delves into the story behind the wolf, it appears that there is a method to his madness. Maybe he isn't killing indiscriminately. Aubrey shows just how tough she can be as she gets the answers from the wolf himself. Shane and Aubrey may not seem like the ideal couple at first, but the chemistry is certainly there and the tension and heat builds between them even as the suspense and intrigue surrounding the NDS continues to build. In Shane, Brown has given us a character that we should hate, and in real life, we would, but as questions are answered and we get to know him, hate is not the emotion he stirs. 

If you aren't familiar with The Somerset series, each book focuses on a particular couple, but I would recommend reading from the beginning to get the full impact of the suspense surrounding them. This reader will be anxiously awaiting the next installment of this series and I have to say that I am dying to know all of Luke's story!

Out of the park home run!
Gods of Howl Mountain: A Novel - Taylor ... Gods of Howl Mountain: A Novel - Taylor Brown

Wow! Just wow!  Brown has penned a masterpiece this time. I enjoyed his last book, "River of Kings", but this one....wow!  His ability to describe a scene; the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and even the "aura" is incredible.  You cannot read this and not feel that you are there, in the mountains of North Carolina in the 1950's. The character development is strong and convincing. The moonshiners, the lawmen, the church members, the healers.  The suspense, the violence, the coming of age romances. The mystical, magical character of Granny is especially strong. And the plot is so believable and flows along at such a rapid rate that you cannot put the book aside, but find that you have to take breaks, otherwise you may find yourself actually swept away in the maelstrom!  Super highly recommend this book!

I received a free copy of this book via First Reads giveaways on GR, Thank You.

It took a long time for me to finish this book, for as it turned out, reading a full length book in German is not as easy as it seems. But, I still think my dictionary and I managed to read it to the end and understand what was actually going on!

I thought the middle part could have been cut without actually changing the story. It was a bit more romance than I normally read, but it was OK. It won't be on my top lists, but it was a nice read all the same.
