🧣Winter Weather Warning issued for my county. I was lucky to be home today. Time to curl up and be cozy with a mystery.

charl08 That's a lot of snow! 1w
Jess_Read_This @charl08 It is! And it‘s still snowing. We have about 7 inches so far. A bit much for early November.. lol. 1w
Lauram Snow is coming my way next. I‘m hoping for a snow day tomorrow. 1w

Jess_Read_This @Lauram It is so beautiful (bc I didn‘t have to drive in it. Lol) I hope you get your snow day tomorrow! It‘s supposed to stop around 8pm here which gives the road crews time to clear so my hopes of a snow day tomorrow are dwindling. 1w
Cailey_Mac Yikes! We got a light dusting today, and we‘re allegedly expected to get another 12inches tonight; we shall see though 1w
Jess_Read_This @Cailey_Mac oh wow! 12 inches?! At last check we had 8 inches and it‘s still snowing. I hope you can stay home tomorrow curled up with a book! 1w
Cailey_Mac @Jess_Read_This right! We rarely cancel work though :( 7d
Jess_Read_This @Cailey_Mac ☃️No one can truly prepare us for this crappy part of adulting: work doesn‘t cancelled because of a snow day... unless you are a teacher which I feel like it‘s a small perk in the face of all the obstacles in their job lol. 6d
Cailey_Mac @Jess_Read_This right! I‘m thinking the same thing! Hence our current house search not going further than 20 minutes away from work😅💀 5d
Jess_Read_This @Cailey_Mac ha! You are wise. So wise. I have an hour commute on a normal day. Snowy days make me ponder my life choices 😂 4d

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 🙂 2w
TorieStorieS @cathipink Thanks!! It‘s a t-shirt! Gotta sport some #bookwear! ☺️ 2w

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I liked the telling three parts...making it a little unclear which narrator is most reliable. I was kept guessing #whodunit right to the end.

In other greatly news... I found my favourite ‘back home‘ butter tarts sold here in the city! Getting cozy with a reading snack could get dangerous 🙄

Bookzombie That looks yummy! 2w

Down with the flu and the only thing to do was read. Sujata Massey‘s fictitious lawyer with super-sleuthing skills is great company! Perveen Mistry may be doing her bit for women‘s empowerment in the 1920s of Bombay. But she‘s every bit relatable! #Booked2019 #FemaleDetective #whodunit #MysteryWithAServingOfDelectableParsiCuisine

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

squirrelbrain I love Bake Off and Strictly too - great fluffy telly! 1mo

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.

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 😆 2mo
LeahBergen Oh no! How long do you have to wait for the next flight? 2mo

Murder by Matchlight | E.C.R. Lorac
Pickpick

Rather atmospheric due to its setting in the Blitz; entertaining in the way most of these reissues are, without being wildly exciting. Some fun little character studies!

Were I still in English lit academia, I'd want to study the appeal of these Golden Age British crime novels in this particular political landscape...
