‘Kulcher’ in 2017

In this post I mention the books I have read, the films I have seen, the music heard/concerts attended, and exhibitions I have attended during the course of the year.

  1. Books

I read 18 books in 2017, considerable down from 32 in 2016, but this is probably a reflection of my work responsibilities. They included 5 books by Kate Morton, a new author for me. Angela bought me The Lake House in January, and that got me started! The complete list is:

The Lake House – Kate Morton

The House at Riverton – Kate Morton

The Forgotten Garden – Kate Morton

Extraordinary People (The Enzo Files #1) – Peter May

Need you Dead (Roy Grace #13) – Peter James

Love Like Blood (Tom Thorne #14) – Mark Billingham

Secrets of Death (Cooper & Fry #16) – Stephen Booth

Sleeping in the Ground (Inspector Banks #24) – Peter Robinson

Acts of Violence (Inspector Carlyle #10) – James Craig

Out of Bounds (Inspector Karen Pirie #4) – Val McDermid

All Kinds of Dead (Inspector Carlyle #11) – James Craig

Beneath the Surface – Sibel Hodge

Insidious Intent (Tony Hill & Carol Jordan #10) – Val McDermid

A Legacy of Spies – John le Carré

The Murder Bag (Max Wolfe #1) – Tony Parsons

Die Last (Max Wolfe #4) – Tony Parsons

The Secret Keeper – Kate Morton

The Distant Hours – Kate Morton

I am currently reading ‘The Crown Jewels’ (The White Hart Book 1) by John Paul Davies, and ‘Origin’ (Robert Langdon #5) by Dan Brown.

As usual, I refer to my GoodReads account for more details.
