While Den was watching college football and NFL football I was reading!
I finished this…oh how I love this series…smart sad Flavia! This is the 8th book in this series.
I also finished this…an older one of this author’s…totally a page turner.
And I am really into this one…a Lady Sherlock Holmes series…
New books! From Edelweiss…Peter Swanson is the nephew of a dear friend of mine. This is his newest book.
From the acclaimed author of Her Every Fear and The Kind Worth Killing comes a diabolically clever tale of obsession, revenge, and cold-blooded murder—a sly and brilliant guessing game of a novel in the vein of Ruth Ware, Paula Hawkins, and Patricia Highsmith…summary from Amazon.
From the author of The Other Woman…the mesmerizing tale of what kind of woman could have inspired an American dynasty…summary from Amazon.
From the author of Secrets of Nanreath Hall comes this gripping, beautifully written historical fiction novel set during World War II—the unforgettable story of a young woman who must leave Singapore and forge a new life in England…summary from Amazon.
A dazzling debut about family, home, and grief, The Floating World takes readers into the heart of Hurricane Katrina with the story of the Boisdorés, whose roots stretch back nearly to the foundation of New Orleans. Though the storm is fast approaching the Louisiana coast, Cora, the family’s fragile elder daughter, refuses to leave the city, forcing her parents, Joe Boisdoré, an artist descended from a freed slave who became one of the city’s preeminent furniture makers, and his white “Uptown” wife, Dr. Tess Eshleman, to evacuate without her, setting off a chain of events that leaves their marriage in shambles and Cora catatonic–the victim or perpetrator of some violence mysterious even to herself…summary from Amazon.
I cannot link! My poor blog is terribly broken…I have to get serious about changing over to WordPress…I seriously do but I continue to put it off! I wasted time this morning trying to figure out some of this stuff and I still end up posting on a broken blog. I am at a loss because it looks as though I have a WordPress blog but it has a weird name. Sigh! I may have to hire a professional blog fixer!
I just had to buy this cookbook. Tieghan Gerard is a food blogger. I love her blog and now I love her cookbook. It’s beautiful and filled with amazing foods! Her story is fascinating! Her blog name is Half Baked Harvest.
That’s it for me…it’s now 12:21 and I have accomplished nothing. My sister is coming on Thursday and Den is downstairs washing the windows in the sunroom and I have done nothing.

Lovely books! I enjoyed The Vanishing Year…and now I'm loving the author's The Blackbird Season. Thanks for sharing.
Wow, you got a lot of reading done during football! I must have the new Swanson book!
I almost requested A Floating World but I am not sure I want to read about a hurricane right now. I read Five Days at Memorial and that was plenty of Hurricane Katrina for me. I might change my mind later.
That cookbook cover! Immediately got my attention.
I am a little down today. I have so many things I want to do and the routine of work is bringing me down. I'll be okay after today but coming off a full weekend is what does this to me.
How fun your sister is coming. What fun you two will have! I love Flavia de Luce. I need to reread her series. I'm currently going through the Kate Daniels one. Almost done.
I can totally help you migrate your blog to wordpress. It's not that hard at all to get set up!
OMG! You are an angel. I have guests in this week…maybe next week when you are free?
Flavia steals my heart! I am not familiar with Kate Daniels…checking her out now!
Isn't that cover fab? Go to her blog…it's amazing and all her recipes are right there. I am making a Broccoli Quinoa Cheesy Bake tonight from there. Monday's at work are always depressing…so sorry you are going through this now!
It's on Edelweiss. Go get it!
These books look interesting!
You are moving to WP?! I have been considering this, too. PLEASE let me know how it goes. I may follow you over. Hugs.
The Sherry Thomas and Peter Swanson book covers are so good! Hope you love all your new books!
I think I do. I am reading the Peter Swanson book now…it's good!
I think so….I will let you know.
