Books I've read:

1. Indelible by Karin Slaughter

2. The Private Patient by P. D. James

3. Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquivel

I've tried writing reviews for the books but after staring at a blank page for quite some time, I gave up. But if anyone has questions about any of the books, leave a comment.

Book Review: Cabinet of Curiosities by Preston/Child

Title: Cabinet of Curiosities
Author: Douglas Preston/Lincoln Child
Number of Pages: 574 pages
Book Number/Goal: 52/75
My Rating: 4/5

Review: During the construction of an apartment building in New York City the remains of an earlier building are found – together with 36 bodies. The bodies seem to be the victims of a 19th century serial killer and attract the attention of FBI agent Pendergast. Pendergast convinces Nora Kelly, an archaeologist working for the Museum of Natural History, to help him with his investigations. Soon enough, more bodies are found and it looks like a copycat killer is at work.

I've read 'Still Life with Crows' earlier this year and never really got into the story which also featured FBI agent Pendergast. I'm glad, though, that I decided to pick up 'Cabinet of Curiosities' at the library because I really enjoyed the story and the characters, especially agent Pendergast. He's very eccentric and reminds me a bit of Sherlock Holmes. All in all, a very enjoyable read.
