I started about 6 chapters of Haruki Murakami's 1Q84 but now that Michael Connellys' The Drop came out, I might read that first... got to read that Harry Bosch novel first..

I've been reading a whole bunch of Michael Connelly books after The Lincoln Lawyer hooked me.

The Overlook


Wasn't one of my favorites, though I do think it had the best twist. Didn't have me on the edge of the seat going page by page as the rest seem too. Harry Bosch is featured in this one.

Void Moon


No Bosch, no Haller led me to my first Connelly experience without the reoccurring characters. Was a pretty good one, though it seemed to lack the major climax most of the other books have had.

The Brass Verdict


The third book I've read featuring both Haller and Bosch, who hare half brothers and the second book in the Lincoln Lawyer series. I'd say this was the best one I've read so far by Connelly and am hoping that this is turned into a flick as well.

About A Boy. Great book. I loved the movie, and the book is even better.
