Weekly Reading Round-Up
Don’t you hate it when a new book comes out in a series you love and you don’t realize it? And then you do and it’s both wonderful and also annoying. Annoying because you could have read it a month ago. But wonderful because you have it now. And then you go and double-check all of your favorite series to see if any of them crept up on publication while you weren’t looking.
In any event, I’ve spent the past couple of days (virtually) in Nantucket with the latest installment of Francine Mathews wonderful Merry Folger mystery series, Death on Tuckernuck. I love these books. They’re completely absorbing and so easy to drop back into when you haven’t read one for a while.
I am currently debating whether to go back and re-read all the Merry Folgers, go back and re-read all the Dorothy Sayers Harriet Vane books, or go and read something else new. All suggestions welcome!
What have you been reading this week?
Just finished Things You Save in a Fire. Enjoyed it thoroughly and, since I grew up in the same area, loved the setting.
Finished #4 of the Sisters of Woodside Regency mysteries/romances by Mary Kingswood, The Seamstress, which was excellent. Also read the prequel in the series (which I hadn’t realized existed!) called The Betrothed, and now on the 5th and final installment, called Woodside. Excellent series, highly recommended!
Earlier this week I read Charlotte Bronte: a Fiery Heart by Claire Harman.
Finished the new Huger Games prequel and loved it. So dark, such a complicated antihero! Now I’ve started Mrs. Dalloway, because I’m attempting to live in the 1920s…
Oh my gosh! I’m so happy to hear that the hunger games prequel is good 🙂 I’ll be sure to read it soon!
A Bad Day for Sunshine by Darynda Jones.
