Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday, all!

Apologies for my continued absence here.  Between some family stuff and deadlines, it’s been a challenging couple of months and many balls have been dropped along the way.  I suspect it will be a few more months before we’re back to our regularly scheduled programming over here, but I hope to be back in the swing of things by the fall– particularly since we’ll be having our first ever Team W Reader Weekend to celebrate the launch of The Author’s Guide to Murder in November!  But more on that soon….


In the meantime, I’ve just discovered Jill Paton Walsh’s charming Imogen Quy mystery series, in which the nurse at a Cambridge college finds herself lured into the role of detective.  I’m finding them highly soothing, in the vein of Charlotte MacLeod’s Sarah Kelling mysteries or Dame Ngaio Marsh’s Alleyn (except set in the 1990s rather than the 1930s).

What have you been reading this week?

    I read an ARC of the new Rivers of London Novella, The Masquerades of Spring, and you are going to LOVE IT! It’s Rivers of London narrated by Bertie Wooster. Now I’m on the second book in Cari Thomas’s Language of Magic Series, Shadowstitch. It’s continuing to be very much The Craft but British, but there’s more Practical Magic too.

    Have been striking out lately and so am thinking I am going to have to revisit some oldies but goodies, like Victoria Holt, etc. I am hoping that will be the key to ending this horrible reading slump!

    A book that I think needs a lot more attention: The Last Secret of Lily Adams by Sara Blaydes. If you love old Hollywood–as I do–she paints the most vivid picture I’ve ever read. Far more so than the popular Evelyn Hugo novel.
