I‘m a fan of the Jack Reacher series and have been reading the books in order for the past few years. Night School takes us back to 1996 when Reacher was still an MP in the US Army. After receiving a medal, he is immediately sent off to night school where he meets an FBI agent and a CIA analyst. They soon figure out they are not attending a school, but instead being sent on a special mission in Hamburg, Germany. #MountTBR

Better Off Dead: A Jack Reacher Novel | Lee Child, Andrew Child

Panpan

This was my 4th or 5th Reacher novel, and it's gonna be my last. I liked one of the ones I read, but the others have all just felt like repeats. Bad guys are plentiful and stupid. Reacher says nothing. Meh.

First finish for #jubilantjuly

Killing Floor | Lee Child, Child

Well, never thought I would have shingles at the age of 39, but here I am. Stress is a funny thing, it can bring out the worst in you.

On the plus side, I can take tmrw off work to rest, so I'm going to focus on my reading and maybe do some more audiocrafting.

The moral of the story, take time for yourself and don't let stress consume you.

Bookworm54 Hope you feel better soon! 3mo

mdm139 I hope you get better soon. I had them when I was 21 and remember the awfulness. Take the time for lots of self care. 3mo
Ruthiella Hope you recover swiftly! ❤️ 3mo
KristiAhlers I got shingles when I was 35. It was the worst pain I have ever experienced and that‘s to include child birth. Hope you soon start to feel some relief. My was triggered by horrible stress too. 3mo
AmyG My son had it in his mid 20‘s. I hope it‘s bot too painful for you and you recover soon. 3mo
aperfectmjk @KristiAhlers geez! I've never had a child... so now I'm not feeling so confident. So far the pain is manageable, but I was really scared there for a bit because I was having chest pain, which apparently is common. My husband keeps downplaying it... saying "Oh, you're not really sick." 3mo
curiouserandcurioser @aperfectmjk saying prayers for healing and quick recovery🙏 rest and take care of you💜 3mo
Amandajoy Hope you‘re feeling better soon! 3mo
KristiAhlers @aperfectmjk it may just depend on where your shingles have broken out. Mine started in the middle of my spine and wrapped around my left side to end in my left nipple. And it rode right along the bra line. My husband came up one day and just rubbed his hand down my back like he always does and it dropped me to the floor. I pray yours aren‘t as painful. (edited) 3mo
aperfectmjk @KristiAhlers mine also started with pain in my spine, the rash is on my left side right along the bra line as well. It has not spread to the front side of my body, and I hope it doesn't. But, I do feel muscle tension in my chest, neck, and armpit area, which I think may be from my lymph node being swollen. 3mo
Kimberlone I had shingles for the first time at 26! Super stressful time in my life. It was pretty horrible and I even caught it early. Unfortunately runs in my family :/ thankfully haven‘t had an outbreak since then. I feel your pain! It gets better 💜 3mo
Megabooks I‘m so sorry you‘re dealing with that and the stress that caused it. 💜 3mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Get well soon. 💗 3mo

Book ten in the Jack Reacher series and this never gets old, I have loved every book and even although they always follow the same formula, I can't get enough.

Jack rarely goes to the same cafe twice but the coffee is great so he breaks his own rule.

That second cup of coffee takes us from New York, USA to Norwich, UK and those last 40 pages had me on the edge!

Jack makes these books for me, I crush hard on him and I feel no shame!

Although I felt it was a bit long, this is still a solid pick for me. I found it intriguing and probably not so far fetched as one might think. Reacher does what Reacher does. He solves the problem, kisses the girl, and leaves. Fun reading. This was my May #bookspin @TheAromaofBooks

Bklover Great Reacher summary. 4mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 4mo
TheAromaofBooks Your summary reminded me of the Zatoichi movies (my husband loves them) although he doesn't usually actually KISS the girl, he just leaves her crying in the distance 😂 4mo

Bad #Luck and Trouble was one of the first Jack Reacher books I read, and it is still one of my favourites. Although I must admit I‘ve fallen a bit out of love with the books recently.

@Clwojick

LitStephanie I have read a couple and thought they were fun. Might try this one next 4mo
Andrew65 @LitStephanie Hope you enjoy it. 4mo

Another wow! An anthology of the International Thriller Writers. The premise…a face off between 2 members using their famous protagonist and writing the story together! I loved the premise and the stories, anxious to see in each circumstance how the characters would be put together (though I have seen hints to a few of these stories in later books 😂). You don‘t want to miss this if you are a fan of a good thriller.
