My tbr is getting out of control. My books are are closing in on one another. It is time take action and remind myself of all those goodies on my shelf. To get motivated I started a meme, TBR Thursday. Each week, I will highlight one book that I physically own, be it arc, bought, paperback or ebook and is on my tbr. It could have been there for months or just acquired it yesterday, but the point is to spotlight novels that scream “read me”.
After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Strike is down to one client, and creditors are calling. He has also just broken up with his longtime girlfriend and is living in his office.
Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: His sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, known to her friends as the Cuckoo, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.
Why it’s on my tbr:
Like most children of the 90s, Harry Potter was one of my all time favorite books. Thus, when it became known that Robert Galbraith was a pseudonym for J.K. Rowling, I knew I had to read it. Recently, I’ve gained an interest for police procedural/detective novels which moves the first in the Cormoran Strike series up a little on the tbr, and despite mixed reviews still look forward to reading it.
