February was a busy reading month for me, and I’m finding myself reading a lot more books than I have time to review as well as gravitating to non-crime novels. Life is getting busier, and I’m trying to give myself a bit of a break and not review absolutely everything I read. I’ll still post a few reviews a month, but they may be a bit more sporadic.
This month my pick is Laura Lippman’s After I’m Gone, which is the story of the wife and daughters left behind by a mobster who fled the country (presumably) before sentencing. And my favorite read of the month that I didn’t get a chance to review is Arnaldur Indriðason’s Silence of the Grave. It’s a very affecting novel, and it’s one of my favorite reads of the entire year.
