I read four crime novels in January:
My favorite read of the month is, surprisingly, The Power of Three by Laura Lippman, a book I wasn’t madly in love with when I first finished it. Lippman is so good at building a world and building characters, and I’ve found myself still thinking of the book in the last month. I think I was initially disappointed with the book because I was disappointed with the characters who were responsible for the murders in the book. I also really loved The Return by Hakan Nesser, but it’s not a surprising pick for me. I tend to read lots of Swedish stuff.
