Strong Poison | Dorothy L. Sayers

Wimsey is really growing on me, even with his iffy insta-love. I'll have to read the next books with Harriet Vane. But Miss Climpson stole the show!

jillrhudy My favorite detective of all time. 7d

While I had read a Wimsey novel before, I couldn't remember much about it. So I was surprised that Wimsey reminded me of Bertie Wooster, only with brains and a backbone. I could see the first twist early on, but the rest surprised me. I don't think that I will read the whole series, but I have already started the next one.

Unnatural Death | Dorothy L. Sayers
post image
Pickpick

It all started with an interruption in a conversation in a Restaurant. From this Lord Peter Wimsey gets involved in a case that doesn‘t seem a case but at first glance a death from natural causes. Watch as he goes on the hunt that leads to more than one murder. This ended up in an excellent murder mystery with suspense at times and the reader trying to work out what went on and why. Definitely recommend this one and look forward to reading others.

Bklover I read the Lord Peter Wimsey books years ago and recently bought one for a reread. I remember really enjoying them! 4w
Andrew65 @Bklover That was my thought on reading this one, my first, and will definitely come back for more. 4w
Tove_Reads Only read the first in the series and didn‘t like it. 4w
Andrew65 @Tove_Reads Not read the first one, this is the only one I‘ve read. 4w

Started reading Unnatural Death, which is the third book in the Lord Peter Wimsey Series by Dorothy L Sayers. This was published in 1927. #CenturyOfBooks

This #purplecover book I have yet to read.

veritysalter Have you listened to the Shedunnit podcast? They discuss all the British Golden Age crime writers, with especial focus on Sayers and Christie. They are an interesting group, who went on to become The Detection Club. 2mo
erzascarletbookgasm @veritysalter I did not know about this. I love AC and the Golden Age crime authors, will look it up! Thanks 🤗 2mo

One more #shelfie, just for fun. These are the shelves in my front room/library, where I‘m currently sitting in a comfy chair, enjoying a rare break with a bit of Lord Peter whimsy and a cuppa.

readordierachel Silly life. Doesn't it know we have to read? 2mo
ValerieAndBooks Beautiful! Thanks for sharing your shelfies. What's the paint color on your walls? 2mo
saresmoore @ValerieAndBooks This is Sherwin-Williams “Cyberspace”—it‘s a deep blue-gray. I think it‘s my favorite ever wall color because it makes a statement, but is very versatile & looks lovely in every light. 2mo
Cinfhen Oh, they look stunning 😍😍😍 2mo
ValerieAndBooks Is it on just one wall? Or maybe two? So glad you‘re enjoying the color. I keep looking around my home wondering if I could pull off something similar— and it‘s hard to picture because it‘s a contemporary, built in 1980 with a lot of angles! 2mo
Moray_Reads looking lovely 2mo
emilyhaldi So pretty!!! ❤️ 2mo
saresmoore @Moray_Reads @emilyhaldi Thank you, friends! ♥️♥️♥️ 2mo
saresmoore @ValerieAndBooks I have it in the whole room, but it‘s a very open room with a big window and two wide case openings. I did an accent wall in my living room, which is really nice, but all the rooms in this house are pretty much basic squares. I think you should give it a try! It‘s really fun for me to play with drama and color in certain spaces—all the rest of my walls are pure white. 2mo

Whose Body? | Dorothy L. Sayers
post image
Mehso-so

I listened to this as a audiobook, but performed as a radio show. I actually really enjoyed this style. This was my first Dorothy Sayers, and for most part I enjoyed it! It was really engaging the first part, towards the last 20 mins of the books, I did kida drift off into other thoughts (I'm still getting used to audiobooks). Overall, a nice introduction to Sayers and Lord Peter, definitely want to discover more. A good book, not great, but good.

Gaudy Night | Dorothy L. Sayers

Lukewarm pick. Interesting plot but far too much banter, bickering, ruminating, etc. Anyway, it knocks off prompts for a couple reading challenges.

#Booked2019 #nightoriented not just because of the title but also because much of the mischief occurs at night.

#MMD for a book published before I was born. It was probably quite modern at the time...

Cinfhen I love a #DoubleDip 🍦🍦 3mo
shanaqui I think Gaudy Night might work significantly better if you've actually read the series leading up to it, or at least Strong Poison and Have His Carcase. It's really not typical of the series in many ways, but relies heavily on the investment in the characters for the emotional part of the plot. 3mo
Susanita @shanaqui I was thinking that too as I got further into the book. 3mo
shanaqui @Susanita For fans of the series it's the most awesome payoff, but why should you care if you don't know the background, after all! 3mo
