Hey my loves,
I haven’t read a book that had nothing to do with Uni work in FOREVER, like literally almost two freaking years. So, when I finally finished my Bachelor thesis and was completely free I promised myself to read at least three books. Well, I already read four and am currently in the midst of my 5th and have more lined up. I really want to finish them before I start with my masters degree.
I love reading criminal novels and thrillers, a combination of both even better. I thought I would share my summer reading list with you, even though it’s already to start to turn into fall over here (lol).
One of my favorite book series at the moment are the Robert Hunter books by Chris Carter. I just really like his writing style and the content is so gory and creepy – just SUPER GOOD. If you’re into thrillers these are the books to read – trust me.
Robert Hunter is a Detective at a Special Division of the LAPD and deals with serial killers. He works with his partner Detective Carlos Garcia on really bad cases. Each book deals with a different killer.
I’ve so far have read eight of the eleven books he has published about Robert Hunter and am currently reading the ninth. The first three I read back in 2016, so I had quite a pause before I started to read the others.
The Crucifix Killer
I’ve read ‘The Crucifix Killer‘ in 2016 and have been hooked ever since I just really enjoyed reading it, even though it is quite cruel.
I’ve read ‘The Executioner” right after the first one, I just couldn’t put the books down.
The Night Stalker
Again, read ‘The Night Stalker‘ right after I finished with ‘The Executioner’. Had to stop after this one, because Uni picked up a lot of extra work. But it was a real good read.
I really wanted to read more of the series back in 2016, but like I said Uni started to pick up with a lot more work and then my bad-remembering-stuff-brain got a hold of me (hahaha xD).
Since the beginning of September I’ve read four more of the Robert Hunter-Series, and I can’t put the books down. I absolutely just LOVE reading them.
After that I’m planning on finishing the series with the last two books: ‘Gallery of the Dead‘ and ‘Hunting Evil‘. I am really excited to see what happens in those ones and am really eager to find out if there will be more books of the series.
I also picked out two books that have nothing to with this series, but honestly those might be read in December, but I thought I tell you about them either way.
I’ve read one or two books by Karin Slaughter before and really enjoy her style of writing as well as her way of looking inside a character, so I had to buy my Goodreads suggestions ‘Pretty Girls‘ straight away.
I was super intrigued by the small summary of ‘The Power’, I never read something like this and I can’t wait to read it.
Have you read any of the books I’ve mentioned? If you, what were your thoughts (BUT NO SPOILERS). If you want to go into more details DM on Instagram or Twitter, I’m always up for a good book discussion.
I wish you all a wonderful day.
