The Common Room: History Books

I was out of town and missed last weeks COH, hosted at Phat Mommy when it came out. But better late then never right. I loved the galactic theme, and with my current quest for the perfect American History book I found the blog on History Books at the Common Room timely. I have some good news, while visiting my parents I found two promising history books on my parents bookshelves. I'll blog more about them later.

Book Reviews

Mary Mary by James Patterson
Alex Cross is back. This time he is hunting a merciless killer of Hollywood Stars, who emails the details of the murders to a newspaper reporter at the LA Times. I found the book to be very enjoyable.
Morgan's Run by Colleen McCullough
Wonderful historical novel. Tells the story of the English convicts transported to Botany Bay and how one convict not only survived but thrived on Norfolk Island. I encourage you to read Richard Morgan's story. I am looking forward to a sequel.
Killer Dolphin by Ngaio Marsh
Enjoyable murder mystery. You really get to know the cast of characters. Oddly enough the murder doesn't take place until the final few chapters.
