Evidently, I never posted November stats! 🤦🏻♀️
I discovered Charles Todd and heroine Bess Crawford this month. 👍🏻
I love this series and these characters so much! Putting a hold on the next book right away
I love this series. I enjoy Veronica‘s personality, Stoker, and the storylines. I may not have done much today from my to do list, but I now have two books completed for my #bookfitnesschallenge goal. #bfcr2
I‘m thoroughly enjoying the charming, witty narrative voice in this series. I especially loved the Egyptology plot in this book, which reminded me of the Amelia Peabody mysteries, and I was totally riveted by the side plot involving Stoker. Also, I appreciated that the author took a step to highlight how problematic Egyptology & other archeological pursuits by the British were in the 1800s. On to book 4! ★★★★☆.
The third book in the Veronica Speedwell series goes more into depth about Stoker's past, leaving more intriguing questions about the history and futures of both he and Veronica. These books get better and better and I am going to be so sad when I get to the 4th book and then I have to wait for more. I just may continue on with the story in my head. It is that good.
I have devoured the first four audiobooks in the #VeronicaSpeedwell series this week — such fun!
I thoroughly enjoyed this third installment of the Veronica Speedwell series! I‘m a little sad that my #audiobinging has come to an end but I‘m looking forward to reading the next book! This Egyptian fun was a good addition and I #believe that I may enjoy this series even more than her first! It‘s been supreme #AudioColoring fun! #LiteraryLuck
YAY!!! Raybourn‘s third installment of one of my favorite historical mystery series is a finalist for Edgar‘s Best Novel!!! ♥️♥️♥️🎉🎉
I‘m audiocooking tonight: the tagged book with cornbread dressing and roasted chicken.
Veronica is one of my favorite characters to read! She‘s sassy and clever and just such a strong independent woman! The bantering between her and Stroker is just hilarious! I am so happy I stumbled upon this series! This book did not disappoint! Great adventure and mystery plus that pure Veronica sas! I can‘t wait to see what the next adventure has in store!

“Veronica, have some decency. You nearly exposed my...erm...”
“Yes, I have seen your erm before, if you will recall. And you‘ve nothing to be shy about. It‘s quite impressive.”
“My erm is mine to show when I wish, not for your prurient gawping when it suits you...”
🤣🤣🤣 oh Veronica you are sooo scandalous 😏

Littens I‘m about to get real honest here. I started this book on June 11 & as of today I‘m only 1/2 way thru, it‘s not the book it‘s me. I can always feel when my depression creeps up on me. It takes its worst hit on my reading. But for the last few days I‘ve started to feel much better & I‘m channeling my inner lepidopterist (Veronica) by wearing my butterfly necklace! Hopefully I can end this slump & finish this fabulous book!
Utterly ridiculous, but excessively entertaining. I love Veronica and Stoker. The banter between these two is so much fun and Raybourn creates a full cast of amusing secondary characters. This was a nice break from more serious non-fiction reads and I look forward to the next one.
Apparently chapter 4 is a great time for my snuggle bug Rainbow 🌈 to take a bath 🤨😏! So glad with this crazy crazy busy week I have a few moments to slow down and actually read my physical book. (I‘m driving a lot so my audiobook is getting a lot of listening time)

Best. Yet. This series is just so entertaining and, as I said the last time around, just keeps getting better & better with each book. Truthfully, it‘s hard to go wrong with an ancient mummy‘s curse, a missing diadem, a vile ex-wive, taxidermy, young people behaving badly, Stoker and, of course, Veronica Speedwell herself. This one very much reminded me of Amelia Peabody—time for a reread? A fun read & I look forward to Veronica‘s next adventure.
1. Tagged. With luck, I‘ll get to Provenance by the end of the day.
2. Hanging out at my in-laws. They have a pool which is perfect for hot sunny days like today! (90s today)
3. Guacamole and chips. That‘s really all I need!
Congratulations on your Litsy milestone and thanks for the #BankHolidayGiveaway, @Amy-Laura.
Choosing my favourite read in 2018, so far, was tricky. Veronica and Stoker's third adventure is just one of the many good books this year.
I'm looking forward not only to the second book in @EloisaJames's "Wilde" series, but also the third (picture on top).
