Weekly Reading Round-Up

There’s been more Galbraith over here! This week, I read the second Cormoran Strike mystery, The Silkworm, in which the detective sets out to track down a missing author, only to find he’s been murdered in the same manner described in the author’s controversial manuscript.

Next up, I’m heading over to Paris in the 1920’s with an advance copy of Jennifer Robson’s upcoming novel, Moonlight Over Paris, in which a jilted English noblewoman decides to start life afresh in the City of Light. Keep an eye out for Moonlight Over Paris on January 19th– the same day that The Forgotten Room appears in stores.

What have you been reading this week?

    More Austen…I somehow sped through Emma…and read Northanger Abbey in a day or so. Now for Persuasion…

    I’m reading J. Jefferson Farjeon’s The Z Murders one of the British Library Crime Classics. I enjoyed his Mystery In White last year. Am looking forward to reading The Adventuress by Tasha Alexander. This series gets better and better!

    I read The Adventuress by Tasha Alexander and really enjoyed it. I just finished Pretending To Dance by Diane Chamberlain, and though I enjoyed it I definitely need to move onto something lighter now. I think I’ll start the next Amory Ames by Ashley Weaver tonight.

    I’m currently reading Obsession Falls by Christina Dodd. It’s a real twisty tale! Before that, Wildest Dreams by Robyn Carr and Eighth Grave After Dark by Darynda Jones.

    I read Warrior’s Woman by Johanna Lindsey for OSRBC. I liked it better than I did back when it came out. I wasn’t much into sci fi etc back then. I also read Through a Glass Darkly by Karleen Koen. I loved it and bawled my head off at many points.

    I also went to see Crimson Peak this week. It was a little graphic for my tastes in a couple of spots but it is very much a gothic romance and not a horror movie. It’s beautifully filmed. The costuming and settings were amazing and the acting is excellent.

    I just finished “Flask of the Drunken Master” by Susan Spann. It’s the third in a very interesting and enjoyable mystery series set in 16th century Japan. It features the crime-solving team of Hiro Hattori, a Shinobi (aka Ninja), pledged to protect Father Mateo, a Portuguese priest trying to spread Christianity to Kyoto, Japan. The series has fascinating period detail, and an unusual setting.

    Jealous of your advance copy of Moonlight Over Paris 🙂 I am reading Emily of Deep Valley by Maud Hart Lovelace – my first exposure to any of her books and I am loving the sweet, old-fashioned and wise story.
