  1. The Purity of Vengence was this weeks audiobook. It’s part of the Department Q series that I believe @Pen has read some of. A good Nordic noir........https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18079489-the-purity-of-vengeance I also finished The Lady Most Willing......which had three historical fiction authors in one full length book. I checked it out planning to just read the Julia Quinn story and have no idea what part she wrote. Enjoyable.......https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/13561603-the-lady-most-willing
  2. I haven’t posted my spelling lists of our monthly librarian names yet............so here are the first two. January - Madam Irma Pince M........The Bell in the Lake by Lars Mytting A.........A Stitch in Time by Kelley Armstrong D.........Dolly Parton, Songteller by Dolly Parton A.........The Awakening by Nora Roberts M........Long Road to Mercy by David Baldacci I.........Murder Simply Stitched by Isabella Allen R.......Whiteout by Ragnar Jonasson M.......Miles Off Course by Sulari Gentile A........Marion Lane and the Midni
  3. My audio read of Ringworld proved to be pretty successful. It is considered classic Sci Fi and is about an outer space mission made up of different beings who land on a previously unexplored apparently inhabited world called the Ringworld. The narrator was enjoyable and I might listen to a couple more in the series. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/61179.Ringworld Otherwise my reading has been mainly fluff. I finished the last published book in my Amish Quilt Shop series. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26837878-murder-handcrafted I read Kristen Higgin’s Catch of the Day b
  4. I seem to be wallowing in my stack of books and having to work really hard to finish some. My audiobook The Badlands by CJ Box was reclaimed by the library and I am back on the wait list in order to finish it. It was good, I really like this series. Next up on my audio list is Ringworld by Larry Niven https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/61179.Ringworld. I am not sure about this one for some reason.....classic Sci Fi and has been on my list for years. I did finish Tea with a Black Dragon which is also an award winner from the 80’s in Science Fiction. I liked it, not sure I would class
  5. I finished listening to JD Robb’s latest Faithless in Death. Like always it was a great story! I also finished my first ever Charlie Parker thriller. I have to say I find it fascinating that Lee Child (a Brit who went to the University of Sheffield) and John Connelly(an Irish dude from Dublin) both seem to write great US law enforcement thriller type fiction. I started with the first in the series Every Dead Thing and while really violent it was well done. I will read more in the series but this isn’t one that I feel the need to put a hold on the next today!😉 https://www.goodreads
  6. I am going to catch up a bit and mention a couple of interesting but not awesome books I read last week.The first is The Midnight Bargain which I read in part for my book chain and partly because the cover is awesome. It’s a YA fantasy set in the bargaining season where the girls with magic “come out” in typical historical romance London season but with several twists to the rules I am used to. It wasn’t bad but not a great as the cover! https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/49151031-the-midnight-bargainThe next is one I waited a really long time to read in terms of waiting for this one to becom
  7. @Robin M I have Faithless in Death ready to go on audio just as soon as I finish my current audiobook.🙂
  8. Ok my Woman in White spoiler..................skip if you haven’t read. @Seasider too @Dreaming of Books marriage assumption as I wondered too........I came to the conclusion that legalities like identity proof likely FPP I’d not matter in England at that time. So perhaps they were married by a vicar in a parish that knew their story. That the looking at legal certificates was skipped or not needed by the parish and the wedding simply sat as having occurred in the Parrish registry book until it gets turned in to the
  9. We both enjoyed Finder but haven’t ventured to the second in the series yet. Not adverse, it just hasn’t came up up my Overdrive yet.😉 This week I plan to give Aurora Rising a try https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/30075662-aurora-rising?ac=1&from_search=true&qid=7LbT2gV16q&rank=1. Have you read that one yet?
  10. I have cleansed my palette after my Ready Player Two attempt reading cozy mysteries. Nothing stand out.But my audiobooks have been great! I think I mentioned A Murder in Time last week and I really enjoyed it. https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25790952-a-murder-in-time An FBI profiler who is dressed as a servant in a reinactment steps into a hidden stairway in a historic home in England and comes out 200 years earlier. Finds herself embroiled in an early serial killer mystery with the Duke and his nephew as her sidekicks........I had a love/hate with the narrator but overall enjoyed listenin
  11. Margaret Cavendish is an awesome rabbit trail! Her gmil is already one of my favorite historical women.......Bess of Hardwick. So I already knew a bit about Margaret but never knew she was the author of the first book in the science fiction genre. How cool! I totally enjoyed sticking my toe into The Count of Monte Cristo and resisted the urge to read more......mainly because I was a bit late doing my homework 😉 I had two chapters to read this morning. My character takeaway is similar to Robin’s so I won’t repeat. I really want to know why Dante’s neighbor Caderousse apparently h
  12. Well, I gave up and set my much anticipated Ready Player Two aside. I read the first 50 pages or so and really was going to have to force myself to go further. Sort of a cross between boredom and disappointment. I decided to put the audiobook on hold (6 month wait) and I will decide if I care to know how it all ends when it reaches me again. Just so you don’t think I am in a totally negative mood towards books I was happily anticipating I started listening to The Devil and the Deep End last night. Ooooooh this one is going to be good. I love the characters, so interesting. S
  13. Last night I stayed up really late to finish Lost Boys https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/50496863-the-lost-boys which is the latest In the Peter Decker/ Rina Lazaros series. I definately have some minor quibbles with this book which left me with two cliff hangers. Two! Overall good. 😉 It was lovely to read a long running series where the characters have aged and changed in totally believable ways. Their marriage is strong and they behave like people who have been together a very long time. This is another favorite series where I am someplace in the middle of a reread.........I like the
  14. Stephanie James was a favorite way back when. She also wrote romances as Jayne Castle for a different publisher.....
  15. I think I have read all of Charlaine Harris’s series and Harper Connelly is probably tied with Aurora in terms of favorite. Just looked at GR......I didn’t like Gunnie Rose at all, abandoned it. So I haven’t read them all!😂
