Weekly Reading Round-Up
March 23rd, 2018

I’ve been chugging away on the new book (well, a slow chug, but still a chug), so there hasn’t been terribly much reading time this week. But, when I can, I’ve been sneaking away to steal a chapter or two of Anthony Horowitz’s murder mystery, The Word is Murder, in which the author inserts himself as a protagonist in the story, shadowing a grumpy detective around London.

What have you been reading this week?

    Making my way through Hamilton’s Battalion: A trio of romances. Courtney Milan’s story was awesome. I also enjoyed Rose Lerner’s story (the first I’ve read her) and I’m getting ready to start Allysa Cole’s (also a first). Also, just trying to re-read Alisha Rai’s Wrong to Need You while I’m impatiently awaiting Tuesday’s release of Hurts to Love You

    I’ve been reading through Deanna Raybourn’s Veronica Speedwell series. Love it!

    Simone St. James’s The Broken Girls – excellent! Also Snowdrift, a collection of short stories by Georgette Heyer – simply delightful.

      All the Georgette Heyer short stories are wonderful! I have her original collection, Pistols for Two, but when Snowdrift came out I quickly snapped that up too as it has a few additional short stories by her that I think had only been published in magazines up until then. She’s simply The Best :)

    I read Dreaming of Manderley by Leah Marie Brown, a light, modern take on Rebecca, and it was fun–and the setting in the south of France can’t be beat :)
    Also re-read some short story collections of Agatha Christie, Poirot’s short stories and The Golden Ball & other mysteries. In the latter collection is “The Listerdale Mystery,” which is in my opinion simply superb–whenever I read it, I always long for a film version, perhaps a 60-90 minute PBS production…
    And finally, started Zemindar by Valerie Fitzgerald, which I’ve seen mentioned on this site and elsewhere numerous times but never got around to until now: so far it’s great!

  5. I’m reading Tracy Grant’s “Midwinter Intrigue.” Another wonderful installment in Tracy’s Malcolm and Suzanne Rannoch mysteries.

    Last year I started V.E. Schwab’s Regency esque Shades of Magic series and kind of didn’t finish, so I’m re-reading the first two, A Darker Shade of Magic and A Gathering of Shadows before finishing the final book.

    I’m about to finish the first book in Victoria Thompson’s Gaslight series, Murder on Astor Place, and then will start Murder on St. Mark’s Place.
