Love Love Love

I've largely given up on reading for fun in the past few years.  As a graduate student, I read LOTS of books I have no interest in reading.Taking the time to read for fun makes me feel guilty.

Until I met Kate Shugak.


It's a 20 book series.  And some are better than others, but the writing is solid throughout.  The characters are engaging and real and so much fun to be involved in.  Written by Dana Stabenow, these books make me jealous.  I want to write books like these! 

The books take place in Alaska, a place I've never been interested in. (And not just because I'm not a fan of its famous lipstick on a pig, quit-before-her-term-is-up ex-governor.)  But now I'm fascinated by Alaska (and this winter has given me an understanding of the depth of snow).  

Mostly, I love Mutt.

I think "A Cold Day for Murder" is still available for free on Amazon.  Go check it out!


  1. I have a graduate degree. I read all day at work. I am, however, still a reader. I always have a book going. I have am working on my third book this year. That said, I read rather than doing other things.

  2. As an Alaskan, I am glad to see that you enjoy books set in Alaska! I'll check them out myself!
