Book list for January 2017

Hunting Badger. Tony Hillerman.
An Obvious Fact. Craig Johnson.*
Living Well, Spending Less. Ruth Soukup
Garden of Lies. Amanda Quick.*

More Hillerman, of course. 

The Longmire book just jumped out at me from the library shelf and I was surprised they had it.  It was fun, I guess. 

I borrowed Living Well, Spending Less from Laine and I liked a lot of it.  The rest of it, I didn't but whatever.  It was one of those things I liked well enough while I was reading it and then kept thinking about all the parts of it that bothered me in the days after I finished it. I got some good things out of it, but can't remember what those are now that I'm typing about it. I'm glad I read it.

I saw Garden of Lies on a display at the library and Evelyn and I had a lot of fun talking about what a garden of lies would entail.  It wasn't that great of a read.  I was distracted by the anachronistic language in this attempt at a Victorian detective novel, the weird attempts at romantic banter, and just about everything about this seemed .... off.  But it did keep me up a few nights because I liked the dumb diversion.
