Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday from high in the mountains!

I have a pile of books I’m meant to read— and even some books I want to read— but I’ve been on an uncontrollable Brighton Mysteries binge.  You know how it is when you enter a world and just have to stay there until the books run out?  That’s how it is with Elly Griffiths’s 1950s Brighton series, involving the unlikely friendship of a detective inspector and a professional magician.

This week it’s been The Blood Card and The Vanishing Box, and I’ve got Now You See Them all queued up and ready to go.

The one exception?  Last night, I reread The Mischief of the Mistletoe in one night.  I’d forgotten just how fun it is— and how lovable Turnip can be.

What have you been reading this week?

    Last week for my birthday staycation I literally binged almost all of Enola Holmes, and seriously can’t wait to read the final two I have. Come on interlibrary loan, you KNOW you want me to get the 6th book! After that I’ve been reading Gaudy Night for book club, and after that I myself will be visiting with Turnip! By chance, I think there’s a Miss Climpson’s connection between Gaudy Night and The Mischief of the Mistletoe…

    I devoured all 6 of the American In Paris mysteries by Susan Kiernan-Lewis in the last 3 days. They were very entertaining and the heroine is 60 ish (which is part of it’s charm for me)
