Weekly Reading Round-Up

From the French countryside to a land just this side of Faerie to a mid-century British market town, I’ve been all over the place this week.  Reading-wise, at least. There’s something very soothing about the familiarity of a mystery series, and Martin Walker’s Bruno, Chief of Police series is particularly good at recreating a familiar…

It’s been a marvelous reading week! I followed another one of my best friend’s recommendations and picked up Margaret Rogerson’s An Enchantment of Ravens, in which a mortal portrait painter gets dragged into the politics of the faerie courts (confession: I grew up reading fantasy, and always rather wondered how I would cope if I…

We’ve been House of Plague over here (who knew that kids could combine strep throat with two separate viruses?  It’s like a disease cocktail with a phlegm chaser), so I’ve been doing some comfort reading. After finishing up T. Kingfisher’s wonderful pseudo-medieval fantasy road trip Clockwork Boys (there are technically two books, but they read…

Happy November!  As if it got the memo, the weather suddenly dropped fifteen degrees today, the air turned crisp, and the trees decided to dump most of their leaves.  So it really feels like fall. I rounded off my Halloween reading with a re-read of Simone St. James’s The Broken Girls, which I first read…

I’m rocking three out of three on the Halloween theme reading this week! I started the week with a novel that’s sort of a ghost story and sort of a mystery novel, with a touch of spycraft: W.C. Ryan’s A House of Ghosts, set during World War I, with Britain and Germany vying to invent…

Happy Friday, all!  I’ve been hopping around genres this week, from World War II historical fiction, to World War I ghosts, to some very fun urban fantasy that takes the gothic canon and turns it on its head. I started the week in 1930s London with Julia Kelly’s The Whispers of War, about the experiences…

Happy Friday, all!  With rain and mist and that creeping October chill, it’s been time to break out the sweaters and the whodunnits.  After all, there’s nothing like a cup of tea and a murder– or perhaps the odd ghost– to make a rainy autumn day complete. I started out in the surprisingly dangerous English…

Happy Friday!  This week I read something old, something new, something borrowed– but nothing blue. Did anyone else read the Charlotte MacLeod Sarah Kelling mysteries back in the day?  I read them all in grad school, which was longer ago than I like to acknowledge, so I was happily surprised to rediscover what great fun…

I’ve spent the week running around with my writing sisters, Beatriz Williams and Karen White, in which we met with our publisher to plan our tour for our January book, All the Ways We Said Goodbye (more on that soon!), recorded a video in the Harper Collins video studies, and then snuck away to start…

This week, I desperately wanted to go live in Georgette Heyer’s Regency world for a bit, but didn’t feel like revisiting any of my old favorites, some of which I can practically recite line for line.  So, instead, I’ve been reading through my collection of Heyers I Don’t Read As Often and finding it wildly…
