As many of you may have noticed, I haven’t done a book review in a while. In the past month and a half I’ve been on a series binge, where I finish one, and begin another.

Review: Son of My Father by Peggy Hattendorf – 4 Stars

Right away I felt the weight of Christiana’s need for her father’s approval. The dysfunction of the family only adds to the pressure. She has only ever seen herself as an extension to the family business, to the detriment of her personal life.

Review: The Cuckoo’sCalling by Robert Galbraith 4 Stars

J.K. Rowling, writing under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith, does not disappoint. Her writing style, reminiscent of her Harry Potter series, draws you in. The only negative to the story is how Cormoran pieces together the evidence of who murdered Lula. I kept reading, waiting for some clue, anything, even if it led me down a wrong direction. The fun of a mystery is to think you know who did it, but be surprised at the end. Cormoran’s thought processes on the case were never written or explained. When he arrives at his conclusion, we are not privy to how he came to arrive there.
