Happy Friday, all!
Right now in New York, the seasons seem as discombobulated as I am. It went from a bitter cold that made me think I ought to start my annual holiday reading soon back to October Halloween-reading weather. So I’m not really sure what time of year it is, whether it’s actually going to be Thanksgiving next week, or what I ought to be reading.
In this slightly discontented book limbo, I read my second to last Miss Silver mystery, The Summerhouse, in which an unpleasant woman is found murdered in her gazebo and suspicion falls on her daughter’s fiance– but you know Miss Silver will set it all to rights. From there I went on to more British people being murdered with Lucy Foley’s The Guest List, which falls into the category my husband calls “things going very wrong at yuppie parties”, as old secrets and betrayals roil along with the weather at a destination wedding on a wind-swept Irish island.
I have several new books queued up, but I am seriously considering ignoring all of them and re-reading Georgette Heyer’s The Talisman Ring.
What have you been reading this week? And what do you recommend for breaking a book slump?
