Look how pretty my fireweed drink is! Just made it on my lunch break, and enjoyed a glass while I read Ann Cleeves!
I love this series! Always a solid mystery with a twist I didn't see coming. Love the language of Ann Cleeves writing style and learning Shetland words like Knapping - losing the accent for the benefit of Soothmoothers - those not native to Shetland. I hope when I visit no one Knapps for me. #shetland #bookishtravels #teaandbooks
Getting ever closer with the #24in48 #Readathon , just over two hours to go and 7.30 pm here but also have other things to do in preparation for work tomorrow. Finished the second section of the Group Read for Cold Earth So now halfway through the book and will move back to Botswana with Mma Ramotswe!
Starting Cold Earth by Ann. Cleeves, Book 7 in the superb Shetland Series by Ann Cleeves. I love the remote location and the characters and feel of community within the book. I love spending time with Jimmy Perez. If you can‘t tell in thoroughly recommend this series. #shetland
These will be my books for the #24in48 Readathon. I will be starting in around 2 hours at midnight and reading midnight UK time on Friday/Saturday to Midnight Sunday/Monday. Don‘t think I will get to 24 hours but let‘s see how much I do clock up. Strategy : Physical books when I am awake enough, Audiobook (The Pillars Of The Earth) when too tired to physically read or am driving. Already part way into three of these.
This could end badly...
My #readathon stack for tomorrow! I have an unavoidable church thing in the afternoon, and let's face it, I won't be staying up all night. 😜 But hopefully I'll have a good 10 hours of reading time! So I have a couple of addicting thrillers, a graphic novel and some kidlit to break things up, and When Dimple Met Rishi and A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty on audio, for when my eyes need a break. #deweysreadathon
I really enjoyed this book, I have seen the series, Shetland, which is very dark & moody and helped set the scene reading the book as the Shetland islands are very different to where I live now or grew up. The book & the series are not miles apart & I'm looking forward to reading more in the series.

This will be me really soon... today is my last day at work & then I'm on holiday! We're off to Dorset & it will probably rain so somehow I don't think I'll look quite as glam as the lady in this pic (found via Pinterest) 😂 but I really don't mind!
Taking The Pillars of the Earth, The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu and The Stars Are Legion books with me to read & am hoping to keep up with #lotrchapteraday & The War on Women on my kindle 📖
Bk7 in the Shetland series.Not as good as previous ones, it felt a bit rushed I think,but still a pick for me. I read them more for the atmosphere and the beautiful descriptions of life in Shetland, it's so hard to find great stories based in the Scottish Isles,either Shetland, the Orkneys or the Hebrides. Jimmy Perez is at Magnus Taits funeral when there's a landslide. Rushing down to check, he finds the body of a woman, but was she already dead?
Got to Chapter9 with Flavia but wasn't really feeling it, so I'm switching to the last (so far hopefully) Shetland book, No7 in the series. Attending the funeral of Magnus Tait, DI Perez watches as torrential rain triggers a landslide that sweeps down to the sea. But along with the mud, a body is uncovered. Sounds like another great addition to a fantastic series!
