December 2018 reading - books 61 to 64

61. Purple Hibiscus by Chimamonda Ngozi Adichie – powerful story about a young girl growing up in Nigeria in comfort and privilege that comes with a high price of enduring her father’s rage over matters of discipline and religion – amazing debut novel
62. Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith – third book in the Cormoran Strike series – this time it’s personal as someone from his past is murdering young girls and sending his assistant various body parts – there are also interesting developments in the personal arena
63. The Dry by Jane Harper – a federal police agent returns to his remote hometown in Australia after twenty years to attend his friend’s funeral and gets drawn into investigating whether he really killed himself and his family – there are dangerous secrets from the past … and scary spiders – set in the midst of a devastating drought that is almost another character in the story
64. Irving’s Delight by Art Buchwald – a rather silly but short story about a catnapping and a Super Bowl commercial
