⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Osman has knocked it out of the park yet again. This 3rd book in the TMC series is just as delightfully charming as the previous two. I find myself wanting to crawl inside his stories and live there with all his wonderful characters.

Got a whopping 5,566 points for #scarathlon #teamslaughter (mostly due to 517 #wordsearch words - with 3 hours, 5 thons, a #promptmaze prompt (F2 - there's a kiss 💋), and 14 calander prompts)

Do you ever read books and get a sense that the author must just be a lovely person solely based on the characters they create? I know nothing about Richard Osman, but I'm certain I'd adore him because you could not be anything but charming and write like he does in these books. I'm nearly done with TBTM, and it's just as delightful as the first two.

gossamerchild I've been hearing so many good things about this series, and only just recently. I think I'm going to have to pick them up. This is a great endorsement of the write! 2d
Balibee146 I do like him on his various quizzes and the tweets I have seen (not many lol) 2d
Traci1 @gossamerchild oh, you will love them. They are just about perfect. 2d

Traci1 @Balibee146 I'm not big on Twitter (to be honest I don't really understand it), but I just followed him, and I saw that he's got 3 more books in the works for the series, so yay! 2d
Balibee146 @Traci1 the best feeling when you discover more books. I must read some of them too. I'm the same about twitter lol I've mostly seen him on his quiz think "House of Games" and "Pointless" on the BBC at teatime lol. He's a very knowledgeable but humble seeming man ? 2d
Traci1 @Balibee146 I'm going to have to see if I can find some of these to stream. Living in the US, we only get BBC America, which for some reason always seems to be playing things like Star Trek and Law and Order. 🤷‍♀️ 1d
Balibee146 @Tracy1 ah I see... Hopefully some Who on there too 😉 There's some episodes on you tube xx https://youtu.be/E_5Z4QjLivQ 1d

One of these days I‘ll finish a book. However, I couldn‘t help but start another one today. This is a great respite from This Mournable Body and some of the nonfiction I‘m reading, books with heavier themes. And my partner and Finn are keeping me company as we wait out the rough SC weather. #catsoflitsy

More fun shenanigans from the Thursday Murder Club. Other people come into the characters‘ lives, and they‘re fun new characters. The club decides to investigate an old murder and finds it still has repercussions in the present. This one is just as good as the first two. #audiowalk

This was a surprise. I suggested the Library purchase this book and when they did they set me as first in line for the copy.

I do love this series. I particularly love Joyce's wild unfiltered train of thought mutterings. Great characters, the mysteries are almost reduntant. Almost. ;)

I love Joyce so much! She‘s always surprising. Part of my walk today was downtown because I had a lunch meeting down there and was very early. This cat was outside the building I was headed to. #audiowalk

Worth waiting for. It was good fun to be back with the gang at Cooper‘s chase. I think Joyce is particularly on form in this one. Excellent mystery and it seems like we have a few new members of the gang!

I do wish I had re-read the second before reading this as there were a few references that I was a bit fuzzy remembering.

squirrelbrain Yes, I too thought we‘ve acquired some new friends for the next book! 1w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Third book in the series & absolutely so good. This series never disappoints. I wish I had had a full day to sit down & read this in one sitting. Somehow with each story I find myself laughing out loud, gasping in shock, and tearing up - sometimes all in the same short chapter.
My only complaint, and this has nothing to do with the story itself, is the change of audiobook narrator from the first two.Highly, highly recommend this series.

Another wonderful visit to the residents of Cooper‘s Chase, and another twisty-turny murder to solve.

I didn‘t guess the perpetrator of course; I never do!

We also met at least one new character who I think will stay on to the next book, and the existing characters and their relationships continued to develop nicely.

Another ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read from Mr Osman!

Just as good as the first two books in the series.

The four detectives are trying to find out who killed a TV presenter 10 years ago. As always, they get into something that means a lot more trouble for all of them.

Today‘s #bookhaul (and Henry)!

The King and the Worsley I purchased with your voucher @KarenUK so thank you!

I‘ve only read one King book (22.11.63) but we‘re doing a #buddyread at our Reading Retreat next weekend, so I thought I‘d try it. Will I like it, Trish?! 🤞

I trotted off with your voucher, Jules, to pick up my pre-ordered signed Osman, but then discovered I‘d paid for it already 🤣 - bonus though, as I can choose other books instead!

scripturient Looking forward to reading King with you. 👍🏻😊 2w

Addison_Reads Fairy Tale isn't horror, it's more fantasy and I think the dog character, Radar, will help even reluctant King readers to relate to the story. I hope you enjoy it and have fun on your retreat. 2w

My tentative tbr stack for #scarathlon2022. The Craig Johnson books are planned rereads, and the Joanne Fluke may be a different one from the series. I'll also have audios to add to the list, probably a Kindle book or two, and at least one book (tagged) that hasn't been released yet. I'm so ready for October!

“The simple life is all well and good, but, in this moment, with a murder to investigate, and threatening texts arriving daily, Elizabeth realizes that she has missed trouble.”

The third installment of the Thursday Murder Club is just as good as the first two. Loved it!

CBee I preordered this!! Can‘t wait!! 3w
smalldogs_bigbooks2419 I‘m maybe 100 pages into book one and I‘ve already preordered a copy of book three. That‘s how much I‘m enjoying this series so far. Did you get it as an advanced readers copy? The employees at our local bookstore said it‘s not even out until the 20th. 3w
