Shelley Munro

I didn't know Barbara Vine was Ruth Rendell. I enjoy Barbara Vine's books.

Calico Crazy

Great list, I'll have to check a few of these out, especially The Unbreakable Child.

Anthony North

My favourite here would be Barbara Vine. I much prefer her psychological thrillers to her detective stories.

Adelle Laudan

We have very different tastes in books, but share a love of reading.
Happy T13!


That is an awful lot of reading! I do well to read 55 books a year and most people around here think that is a lot. I have not read any of these so will have to look for them.

Hootin' Anni

My all time favorite Grisham book is "The Client". Then, "A Time to Kill".

My Thursday post is now posted if you'd like to drop by.... 13 sisters


Stephen Fry's book sounds quite interesting...I'm going to have to check that out!


I just put Unbreakable Child on my To-read's list.

Are you on goodreads? I'm Journeywoman on Goodreads--drop me a note and I can friend you.

I find Goodreads is a great way for me to keep track of what I have read.


A Prisoner Of Birth is nice! Mariposa's T13

The Gal Herself

Nicholas! I haven't been here since I quit doing TT's myself, and I'm happy to return to find one of your book lists. Always love these. Thanks for reminding me of Westlake. I like his writing but haven't picked one of his books up in ages.

Alice Audrey

I keep a list of everything - finished or not. I have to, because otherwise I tend to grab the same book again later, then am horribly disappointed.


You are an avid reader! That's great. I'm lucky to do one a month in the winter, but in the summer I love to listen to audiobooks while I work in the yard. Having a large yard, I get more listened to! Thanks for sharing your top picks.

Julia Smith

So glad you love The Unbreakable Child - I haven't read it yet, but it's been on my TBR list for awhile. And Bernard Cornwell - definitely one of my favorites.

Philip Swan

Ruth Rendell is the best, except when she's writing as Barbara Vine - then she's even better.


I love when you do these book lists - our tastes in books seem to be so different that I'm guaranteed to learn about a few that I otherwise might never had been aware of.

I read a Douglas Kennedy book a few years ago... for the life of me can't remember the name. I found it rather dull, but the one that you describe here sounds much better, so maybe I won't write him off just yet. ;)

Wow... I had almost forgotten about T13 - I haven't done one in ages! Might get to that one of these days...

Mary Emken

I have to agree with you,The Big Picture is an excellent thriller. I read it quite a while ago. Have you read The Bitish Cross by Bill Granger? I quite enjoyed that one too. He also wrote The Shattered Eye. He wrote another book, but I just can't think of the name right now. Glad to see you back doing T13. Take care.

A Desi

shux i havent read even one :(

More than just annoyed


Hi, Brit!


May I recommend The "The Museum of Innocence"?

Excellent book.
