Reading right now:
            “Killer” by Jonathan Kellerman. I’m finally reading the latest from Jonathan Kellerman. I was slow to get to this one, so I’m sure everyone else has finished it already! I do love the Alex Delaware books and am enjoying this one. Los Angeles always plays a pivotal part in Kellerman’s books and recognizing the streets and areas in the books is really fun. Another element I enjoy in this series is the relationship between Delaware and his longtime friend Detective Milo Sturgis. So far the book’s unusual storyline is not disappointing (so much so that I wish I’d had more time the last couple of days so that I could have finished it). “Killer” is the 29th Alex Delaware book which started in 1985 with “When the Bough Breaks.”     
Is she the "Killer" or not? 
On hold right now:
            “Strange Bodies” by Marcel Theroux. Here’s a book that has been much talked about from National Book Award finalist Marcel Theroux. From everything I’ve heard it would also be a great book to present to your book club for discussion. I’ve seen it called a high-concept literary thriller, thought-provoking, a combination of comedy and horror, and at its center is the question of what makes us what we are. What would you do if a long dead friend arrived on your doorstep in another body, but with the same personality and memories and life experiences? I love the publisher’s statement about this intriguing book, “Strange Bodies takes the reader on a dizzying speculative journey that poses questions about identity, authenticity, and what it means to be truly human.” This sounds fascinating and I can’t wait for it to come in.
