Weekly Reading Round-Up
Happy Friday, all!
It’s been a week of dark thrillers and monastic murder for me. Riley Sager’s The Last Time I Lied was a read-in-one-night book for me, sitting in the dark between putting my daughter to bed and finally putting the light out myself. I so enjoy Sager’s takes on classic themes– in this case the “girls missing from summer camp and never found” story.
After that, it was back to my Cadfael-a-thon with Saint Peter’s Fair and The Leper of Saint Giles. I’ve got The Virgin in the Ice waiting for me on my Kindle, but I do like to space them out a bit. Like Patricia Wentworth’s Miss Silver books, I find the Cadfaels wonderfully soothing in small doses but much of a muchness when taken all together.
Right now, I’m indulging in Camilla Sten’s The Lost Village, which I’ve been looking forward to for a while. I do love a good creepy missing village story….
What have you been reading this week?
The Last Time I Lied club! We should at least get a badge! I loved all the Picnic at Hanging Rock allusions, added so much depth, and the ending was great! Now I’m onto reading Lakewood for book club, it’s about a college girl with financial difficulties who signs up for a medical trial… not far into it, but has an interesting vibe so far.
I’m reading Deadly Ever After the latest lighthouse library mystery by Eva Gates. I love all her series that I’ve read so far including the Sherlock Holmes bookstore and the teashop mysteries she writes under Vicki Delany.
