Books I Read: July 2017

Dang, I waited a whole eleven days to post this. Apologies to the three of you who check this.

David Grann, Killers of the Flower Moon. ***** In the 1920s the Osage Indians were the richest group per capita in the country. This book discusses the string of mysterious murders and disappearances among members of this group. It reads like a detective novel but it’s all true. I could see this being a mini-series.

Rachel Caine, Stillhouse Lake. ***** Another great one. I almost didn’t read it because it’s the first in a trilogy and the other books aren’t out yet – I don’t like to wait for books. I’m too impatient. Anyway, this book: a woman discovers her husband is a serial killer. The neckbeards on the internet blame her. Some of them come after her. She has to go into hiding with her children. This description makes the book sound dumb but trust me on this one. It’s good.

Marcus Sakey, Brilliance. **** Another book I almost didn’t read because it’s the first in a trilogy and I’m afraid of commitment. A really neat alternate-present type book where 1% of the world is born with special gifts that give them advantages over “normals.” Not superpowers – that would be dumb – but like powers to recognize patterns or read people based on body language. Spoiler alert – the next two books in this trilogy will be mentioned here next month because I already finished them.
