“Career of Evil” by Robert Galbraith

CareerofEvil

I’m so hooked on this series.  It’s killing me with the cliffhangers, and the creepy creepers, and the terrible fiancé!  I love it.  This one was a bit dark in the best way and I was legit creeped out.  I really hate being scared by movies, but there’s something I love about being scared by books.  Flashback to when I was a wee 9 year old, reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.  I was alone in my room and I reached the part where Tom Riddle rearranged the letters of his name to be Lord Voldemort.  I was so scared, I had to stop reading and join the rest of my family in the living room.  Shocker that, as a 28 year old, I was thoroughly creeped out, alone in my room, reading a book by the same damn author.  JK – 2, Annie – 0.

Silkworm

Oh this was a fun one.  And quite graphic, I might add!  Props to RG/JK on that one.  I loved that she set this in the winter time.  It felt like a third character that just kept showing up to make everyone feel uncomfortable all the time.  Once again, I had no freaking clue who did it until the end.  That’s how I roll, though.  I know the next installment is currently being written, and I am pretty stoked.  This series has established itself as incredibly legit.  I love the continuing dynamic between Robin and Strike.  I love/hate the dumbass fiancé.  I love Strike.  They are such entertaining reads that I can see myself reading over again.  I’m on a pretty solid murder mystery roll right now.
