Magpie Murders | Anthony Horowitz
post image
Mehso-so

3.5 stars ⭐️ Magpie Murders is really two books in one: a contemporary mystery and a whodunnit mystery set in the mid-1950s. The whodunnit mystery felt like a love letter to the genre and was very well done, but the contemporary mystery felt strained and convoluted. The concept and structure of this book is clever, but unfortunately, the execution was a bit long-winded for my taste. #LitsyAtoZ #LetterM

hlgreenfield I think I gave this one 4/5, but I do agree that the execution was somewhat lacking! The premise promised better than the actual result, but the old school mystery was such a homage to so many of my favourite books that I ended up loving it! 2mo
candority @hlgreenfield I don‘t read many whodunnits, but that part of the book sparked my interest in the genre! I can see why you enjoyed it! 2mo

Sacre Bleu: A Comedy d'Art | Christopher Moore

What an interesting story! I wasn‘t sure what I was getting into at first, but the author‘s imagination took me on a wild ride with some of my favorite Impressionists. I appreciate the author including book recommendations in the Afterword. (As if I need more books to read.) 🎨 #MountTBR #LitsyAtoZ #LetterM #ReadingUSA2019 #Ohio (author from)

JackOBotts Christopher Moore‘s books are quirky and fun. I particularly enjoyed the tagged book...😆 4mo

The Song of Achilles | Madeline Miller

How wonderful was this book! Miller has a gift for writing that deserves all the credit she gets and more. Her version of Achilles has turned what was mostly about his exploits at Troy, into a love story for the gods. Highly highly recommend.10⭐️ #Booked2019 #NewToYouAuthor #MountTBR2019 #Bk4 #LitsyAtoZ2019 #LetterM #LittenLoveBingo #LLB19 #DiverseReads

Faceless Killers | Henning Mankell

This was my choice for s book set in Scandinavia for #popsugarreadingchallenge and also for the #LetterM for #LitsyAtoZ (in translation). It is a solid procedural, very gloomy and a little claustrophobic at times. It was written in the 1990s so there some odd sexism and some fear of immigrants that wasn‘t fun to read, but I would check out some of the more recent books about this detective to see if that gets any better.

SmartSassery I'm interested to know how you like it. 5mo
Hope_a @SmartSassery This book was forbidden for a really long time, even its author was on the edge of loosing his life and was sent to prison because of it. I was curious to read this book and to see what is this fuss about. Obviously the book has a long history of researches and a whole movement because of it. Standing alone, the plot is not something to hype about. Because nowadays we are used to books like ‘50 Shades of Gray‘ and sex scenes, 5mo
Hope_a @SmartSassery described so vividly is not something that will amuse us. But then, in the time when Cleland lived was completely different. Probably this is the one I loved the most - underline notes. They explained a lot. The story, plot, symbolism and you can understand why actually this book is written and what it meant back then. You can google it and read a lot of publications about the story and its symbolism. It‘s really interesting. 5mo
SmartSassery Thank you so much. Now I'm really looking forward to finding and reading this one! 😍 ❤️ 5mo

This was a fun contemporary romance about a group of laid back friends. Everyone was likeable, the writing was sharp, and I didn‘t get any of the anti feminist overtones that often crop up in romances.

It's a damn shame McNamara died before she could see the guy arrested. Such a wonderful writer, but deeply obsessive investigator.. the details about the ear were creepy to dwell over. Our living room window never has its blinds down and now I'm like.. maybe I need to fix that 😬

The details about her and Patton were sad sweet, especially when she talked about their wedding anniversary gifts. His afterword 😞

readordierachel Yes, that afterword 😭 5mo
