I finished Thirteen, I loved it. I didn’t want it to end!!!

I looked up the author and was surprised to find he’s Northern Irish, for some reason I was expecting him to be American. I thought Thirteen was a stand-alone book but it is in fact the fourth book in the [Eddie Flynn] series. Have any of you read the earlier books? How do they compare?

My current read is Disclaimer by Renée Knight

Not a fiction, but The Body : A Guide for Occupants, Bill Bryson's new book.

So far, very interesting and readable as you would suspect.

Finished The Wych Elm by Tana French; was certainly a page turner for me, but I was not satisfied in the end, possibly because found all characters (with one exception) dislikable.
Also finished The Way of All Flesh by Ambrose Parry; really liked it and will look out for the next one in the same series.
Currently reading Our House by Louise Candlish.

Our House by Louise Candlish was both a page turner and also a social satire which I personally found quite funny.

Started The Flight of Cornelia Blackwood by Susan Elliot Wright.

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - Agatha Christie. I've never read any Agatha Christy but always loved Poirot on TV as a kid. Really enjoying it so far.
