Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday, all!

It’s a particularly happy Friday for me because I turned in the revisions for the Manhattan Well Murder book this week!  And Team W finally came up with a name for our latest collaboration.  So it’s been a banner week for upcoming books: the Team W book coming out autumn 2024 and my Manhattan Well Murder book coming out January 2025.  I’ve also started work on the next book– which isn’t at all the book I had thought I was going to write, but I’ll tell you more about that next week.

To keep me going through the end of revisions, I reread Heather Fawcett’s Emily Wilde’s Encyclopedia of Faeries, which I adore.  It’s a bit like Margaret Rogersen’s Enchantment of Ravens crossed with Laurie King’s Mary Russell: an Oxbridge specialist in the field of faerie who goes to the frozen north to conduct field research and finds her wits and her emotions tested.

After that, I celebrated Halloween with Elizabeth Hand’s sequel to The Haunting of Hill House, A Haunting on the Hill, in which a playwright rents out Hill House to rehearse her new piece, which goes pretty much as well as you would expect.

Right now, I’ve just started Mother-Daughter Murder Night, which I’m very much enjoying.  I have a few more new books in the queue: my reward to myself for having just turned in my own book.

What have you been reading this week?

    Oh my, I CAN NOT wait to read A Haunting on the Hill, I just watched the 1950s film adaptation of The Haunting of Hill House to get in the mood for it. Other than that been deep in reading From Hell for book club. While I knew it was graphic (graphic novel joke haha) I didn’t realize how much surrounding Victorian history it contained. I’m well intrigued.
