A Will to Kill / My Beijing / To all the Boys I've Loved Before | Thoughts

Over the past couple of months, I've read a few books that I didn't get a chance to review yet. These were all enjoyable in different ways and are recommended reads. A Will to Kill by R. V. Raman I've been looking for an Indian mystery for a while now. So when I came across A Will to Kill in Netgalley set in one of my favorite places in India (also close to my home town), I just had to request it. In so many ways, this is a typical Agatha Christie type mystery - there's a death (in an isolated mansion, no less) and the investigator/detective tries to solve the mystery. Harith Athreya is visiting the owner of the mansion, Bhaskar Fernandez, where a small gathering has been planned for the owner's relatives and friends. Bhaskar has written two wills - and how he dies will determine which will goes into effect. That night, there is a murder and Athreya spends the next few days trying to find the culprit. I generally enjoy the Agatha Christie class of murder mysteries.

Catchy Cover #2



Honolulu by  Alan Brennert

All 3 covers (Hardcover / Paperback / Platinum Readers Circle) look great! I haven't had a chance to read Honolulu yet, but I have heard it is great!

What do you think of the cover?

I haven't heard about this book yet, but definitely like the hardcover cover best
I loved this book and also Molakai by the same author. ALL the covers are lovely, but I am partial to the green one.

I have only seen the Hardcover/Green one. I like that and the paperback. Everyone's reviews sound like this a great read, it was $15 on Kindle though, I would prefer to pay $25 for a hardcover than that price on kindle. A definite read for this year though.

hcmurdoch, I'm with you on that!

Diane, I just got Moloka'i for Christmas last year, so I can't wait to dig into it!

MarceJ, I agree, might as well buy a hardcover, if the kindle edition costs so much!
