The Division Bell Mystery | Ellen Wilkinson

Pickpick

Clever and very readable, this mystery didn‘t deserve to be forgotten- especially when you realise it was written by an early female MP so it‘s jammed with insider details about the Houses of Parliament!

CarolynM Love the sound of this. Stacked. 1mo
Verity @CarolynM it‘s a Parliament geeky delight - but not actually about politics - which is nice! 4w

Day 27 - #CharacterWithFlair #DearDecember #IntroducingTheHonourablePhryneFisher #KerryGreenwood

Unflappable, unconventional, and uninhibited, the Honourable Phryne Fisher leaves the tedium of English high society for Melbourne, Australia, and never looks back. In her first three adventures, Phryne handles everything―danger, excitement, and love―with panache and flair, and still finds time for discreet dalliances and delicious diversions.

Eggs Absolutely ❣️ 2mo

This is my November real-life book club choice, & though this one won the unanimous vote, I really wanted to bail on it! The characters are all unlikable; the plot holds only one surprise. The scenes skip around disjointedly which only makes it harder to connect with this book! I thought this sounded fun, but there‘s literally nothing fun at all here! I hate to write a bad review, but hopefully that it will lead to a lively book club discussion!

cathipink Sorry this was a blerg book, but I love your shirt/blanket/fabric behind it 🙂 4mo

1. I‘ve never really read an entire series before this year, but I‘m currently working my way through the entire Phryne Fisher series;

2. I don‘t have one at the moment. The ones I did like have all gone off the boil for the last two or three series, so I‘m only watching stuff like Bake Off and Strictly

3. No. I‘m English, I barely even know what the World Series is!

4. Chicken and chips this evening.

5. Yes

Fire in the Thatch | E.C.R. Lorac

Aaaah, I loved the character of the victim as described in the first couple of chapters, so I got surprisingly invested in this one. Lorac's good at a slow unfolding of the mystery that ends up satisfying anyway; definitely more in the procedural line, detective-wise.

Snow day today! Yes, this is WAY too much snow for October... even in North Dakota. ❄️🥶

School was cancelled so Axton and I got to stay home. We had reading time this morning, then spent the afternoon creating blood splatter wrapping paper with red paint for his #nightmareswap books. I think it turned out suitably creepy. 🔪☠️🖌

Cailey_Mac Omg 😲😲😲 that‘s insane! 5mo
BridgetteM Whoa! 🥶 5mo
LibrarianRyan I love it. Not the snow. 5mo

This is a fun little mystery written in 1946. So many suspicious characters and odd occurrences that I never figured out the murderer. Think Agatha Christy in the English countryside. Hopefully my family members will enjoy this next installment in our #darguschfamilymarkupbookclub. We missed our flight to London to see @AnnieD so drinking and reading is taking away a little of the pain.

emilyhaldi I‘m curious to see if the 🍷 affected the nature / quantity of your marginalia 😆 5mo
LeahBergen Oh no! How long do you have to wait for the next flight? 5mo
