Hi everyone,

Welcome to April. It’s April 1st so look out for any April Fools pranks around the web!

Here’s what I read in March:

The Disappearing Act by Catherine Steadman: LOVED LOVED LOVED this. This is the third book she has wrote and the best. It’s a psychological thriller about an actress, and another actress she meets that has gone missing.

Catherine is actually an actress herself, so I feel that really added to it. You really felt you were there with the character etc. If you’re a fan of psychological thrillers, get this book. So many great twists and turns to keep you guessing.

The Paradox Hotel by Rob Hart: Author of The Warehouse, one of my top books from last year. About a hotel where people can travel to, to time travel into the past. Then it all starts going wrong! Another great book.

The Paris Apartment by Lucy Foley: I listened to this one. The narration added to it as it was a lot of French accents etc but I didn’t enjoy this one too much. It was very slow, and more like a family fueled drama than her previous two thrillers (which are must-reads).

Pretty Girls by Karin Slaughter: I listened to this one too. 20 hours, whew! Quite the investment but well worth it. A great thriller that had me on edge the entire time.

Dead Eye by Mark Greaney: Book #4 in my re-read of the Gray Man Series. An exceptional book.

Black Blast by Mark Greaney: I decided after the above one to read this one then take a break from Gray Man. The five books all sort of go together so it’s a good little end point for a month or so.

The Lewis Trilogy by Peter May: Just started this famous series. Loving it so far.

    Hi there, I have been looking at BSIO for a while but just today clicked on your home page and found your blog. It’s always great to get personal recommendations for books to read.

    I’d like to recommend one to you: The Count of Monte Cristo. I read it somewhere in my youth and found it free on Audible so listened to it again. Despite the fact that it’s very long (38 hours at 1.25 speed) it was EXCELLENT from the very first chapter. Alexandar Dumas is a wonderful story teller, who mixes mystery, adventure, love, and a little bit of social commentary / morality into a winding and intricate plot. There are definite good guys and bad guys, with tons of clever deception and intrigue, and I couldn’t believe how Dumas got sarcasm into the narrative as well! A true delight to listen to and an eye opening re-read.

    The story takes place mostly in France and Italy and the Audible reader was excellent with the accents.

    Well worth a listen or re-read!

      Oh wow the length of that one – I am impressed you were able to listen to it that long 🙂 Think the longest I have listened to is 17 hours. 38 is impressive. I’ve always wanted to read that one but never had the chance I will check it out for sure at some point.
