With Zouheir at home and the … ahem… new TV season starting (meaning, I have to watch the pilots to see what will be worth the long haul), my reading has taken a bit of a back burner. But I’m participating in a Good Reads group Fall Challenge, so I’ve got a list and I’m trying to get as much in as I can!
In paper, I’m reading In the Woods by first-time novelist Tara French. Set in Dublin, it’s a completely engaging mystery that is heading for a big climax. Lots of psychological complexity, with the narrator (one of the detectives on a case) also a victim of a cold case that is somehow connected with the current one. I”m 80% of the way through and hope to get it done this evening. Highly recommended! Next up is Scarpetta by Patricia Cornwell.
On my Kindle, I’m enjoying Dorothy Sayers’ Clouds of Witness. I haven’t read much by Sayers and am totally enjoying her voice, learning some new vocabulary and expressions, and look forward to reading more. Next up is The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. Yay for all the free, out-of-copyright stuff for the ereaders!
On audio, I’ve just finished an appalling Nora Roberts (Savor the Moment). I know, why did I even bother? Well, it was an easy listen to fulfill one of my challenge tasks, but I wish I hadn’t even started it. Brides, cooking, love, and lust. ‘Nuff said. Next up is The Help by Kathryn Stockett. Widely acclaimed, it’s set in the South and so I’m predisposed to enjoy it!
