During the first three months of 2013 I read books by nine new authors to me:
1.) Slip & Fall by Nick Santora;
2.) River in a DryLand by Trevor Heriot;
3.) The Crown by Nancy Bilyeau;
4.) Healthy, Wealthy& Dead by Suzanne North;
5.) Blood of theWicked by Leighton Gage;
6.) To Kill a MockingBird by Harper Lee;
7.) Murder Leaves Its Mark by Victoria Nalani Kneubuhl;
8.) A Lawyer’s Journey by Morris Dees with Steve Fiffer; and,
9.) Red Sparrow by Jason Matthews.
River in a Dry Land and A Lawyer’s Journey were non-fiction while the other six were mysteries. With nine new authors it meant just over half of the books I read during the first three months were new authors for me.
The choice of the best for the first quarter was easy. To Kill a Mocking Bird is a remarkable book that is a classic that will be read with pleasure for generations to come.
Of the remainder they were decent to good reads but none were outstanding. The best of the rest was Red Sparrow. I think it will get a lot of attention when it is published in June.
