Weekly Reading Round-Up

Happy Friday, all! Can you believe it’s the last day of September already?  With October right around the corner, I’ve started in on some of my Halloween reading, beginning with Simone St. James’s Lost Among the Living.  With favorite authors, it’s always such a challenge to find one you haven’t re-read recently– ahem, Silence for…

Happy Friday, all! It’s been a busy week!  I zipped down to Maryland and back for A Likely Story Bookstore and Carroll County Public Library’s wonderful Annual Day for Book Lovers, which meant… train reading time!  I love train reading time.  It’s that feeling of being neither here nor there, with nothing but you and…

Happy Friday, all! Right now, I am suffering an extended book hangover from Zen Cho’s Black Water Sister.  I’m not quite sure how to describe it other than to say it has ghosts, it has family secrets, it has angry gods, it has revenge, and it has a hipster coffee shop.  The heroine, a recent…

Happy Friday, all! First of all, why did it take me so very long to read The Murder of Mr. Wickham?  (Never mind: I know exactly why.  I’m always scared reading books where beloved characters are presented by someone other than the original author.)  Billed as Jane Austen meets Clue, the idea was sheer brilliance:…

Happy Friday, all! It’s been a wonderful grab bag of books this week, with some very old and some very new, but all new to me, starting with Ruth Ware’s latest, The It Girl, about a woman whose roommate at Oxford was murdered during– and who comes to doubt what she thought she knew about…

Happy Friday, all! I’m just back from a week in the White Mountains with the kids (so much Storyland!) during which it seemed easiest to just continue my epic re-read of Charlotte MacLeod’s Sarah Kelling books– I’m not sure just why I find them so soothing, but I do. This week was what I think…

Happy Friday, all! Confession: I have been on a ridiculous Patricia Wentworth-a-thon.  The one exception has been Chris Bohjalian’s The Lioness, part thriller, part historical fiction, about a 1960s safari for a Hollywood starlet and her husband gone very, very wrong. Otherwise, it’s been all Patricia Wentworth, all the time, at the rate of roughly…

Happy Friday, all! This week was a bonanza of new books as I caught up on some of my stack of new releases, starting with Megan Miranda’s latest, The Last to Vanish, a small town in the Appalachians with a reputation for mysterious disappearances.  Is it coincidence?  Natural causes?  Or is there something sinister going…

Happy Friday, all! Can you believe it’s August already?  I can’t decide if the summer is just beginning or almost over, but either way I’m pretty sure I’m behind on my to do list. My reading recently has been equally all over the place.  I’ve been ping-ponging back and forth between my ultimate comfort read…

Happy Friday, all! I hope everyone is staying as cool as they can in the scorching heat!  Summer for me means a new Riley Sager book, in this case The House Across the Lake, his homage to Rear Window.  In keeping with tradition, I stayed up way too late and read it one night.  I’ll…
