I had really spotty coverage Friday through this morning so I‘ll be catching up on posts, #SUNDAYBUDDYREAD discussion from yesterday, #FreebieFriday spin winner, etc.
I have a ton of posts over the past 3-4 days to read through from this lovely community.

Three down….. this was a lot of fun. I enjoyed the historical elements as well as the mystery. I‘m glad the #bakerstreetirregulars chose this one! Being stuck in the lobby of a Disney hotel all day has its benefits 🤣

I love this series and was so happy to have it selected for #bakerstreetirregulars. I have read the whole series in print and on audio multiple times. It does require accepting the racist, colonialist, sexist, and classist viewpoints as belonging to the historical setting. That aside, it‘s a fun romp through late 19th century Egypt, with entertaining characters, mystery, adventure, and a touch of romance.

DGRachel Also, Barbara Rosenblat does an amazing job narrating the entire series. She is Amelia Peabody in my brain. 1w
Shemac77 I love this series as well! Amelia Peabody is a favorite. 1w

Ruthiella @DGRachel Agree ! Rosenblat is fantastic. Her accents are impeccable. Every character is distinct sounding. 1w
StayCurious I‘ll have to try on audio as well! 1w
DGRachel @StayCurious Make sure you get Barbara Rosenblat‘s narration. There is a second audio version with a different narrator and I did not enjoy it. 1w

I've been wanting to reread this series for quite some time, so I was pleased when the first book was chosen as this month's read for the #BakerStreetIrregulars, giving me an excuse to kick off the series reread!! This book was just as funny and entertaining as I remember, with just delightful characters and a romp of a mystery. I remember reading that Peters wasn't intending this to be a series originally, so this one ends with a HEA epilogue ⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) but I'm definitely planning to reread the other 19 books in the series as well. Is it because I'm using this as an excuse to slowly purchase all of them in these gorgeous editions? No comment 😂

I rather enjoyed this tale of archeological times in the late 1800's. The characters grew and I loved the leading lady who told the story. This was a great read for #BakerStreetIrregulars #BuddyRead. Our discussion at the end of the month should be interesting. @StayCurious @CatLass007 One Bingo Spot for #ISpyBingoApril #ReadAway24 @Clwojick @TheAromaofBooks @Andrew65 @DieAReader @GHABI4ROSES

DieAReader 🥳Great! 2w
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I finished this one today as well. My understanding is originally this was going to be a standalone, but Peters went on to write another 19 books about these characters!! I read this whole series a few years ago and loved it. 2w

Hey #BakerStreetIrregulars, I‘m so far enjoying our April read! I really like our sassy main lady. Here is an interesting article about Amelia Peabody and her inspiration: https://thenewinquiry.com/blog/will-the-real-amelia-peabody-please-stand-up/hick...

LiseWorks I so loved the name. Amelia Peabody is so close to Dalia Peabody in the In Death Series 2w
StayCurious @LiseWorks I wonder if it was an homage by Roberts 2w

I would have to say this was my favorite book of the month of March. I believe this is the first book, and I would really like it to have a second book. Since it's James Patterson who loves to write series. #SeriesChallenge @Maich #BakerStreetIrregulars @StayCurious @CatLass007

maich Patterson is amazing. You just remember me that I need to finished some series by him🙈 3w
CatLass007 @LiseWorks @maich I‘ve read the first couple of books in Patterson‘s YA series Maximum Ride. I enjoyed them and need to go back and finish the series. He didn‘t have a co-author for that series, so I feel like I got to see the “real” James Patterson. 3w
