Happy Friday! Here’s what I’ve been reading this week:
— Julia Spencer-Fleming, To Darkness and to Death, et al.
I finished up my Julia Spencer-Fleming marathon with To Darkness and to Death, All Mortal Flesh, I Shall Not Want, and One Was a Soldier, and then felt very bereft when I was done. It was extremely hard to leave Miller’s Kill after that full seven book stretch.
— Jane Langton, Emily Dickinson Is Dead.
I am so fortunate in my friends. Just as I was wondering what I was going to read to ease my Miller’s Kill separation anxiety, a huge care package of books arrived in the mail, hand-picked from second hand stores by someone with incredible book taste. I decided to start off with this vintage academic mystery, in which an Emily Dickinson symposium brings out all the greed, anxiety, and murderous tendencies of the scholars in attendance.
— Sarah MacLean, One Good Earl Deserves a Lover.
This is the second in Sarah’s Rule of Scoundrels series (coming to a bookstore near you on January 29th!) and for you MacLean fans out there, I think this might be her best so far.
What have you been reading?
