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!

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.

I just finished this book last week, it was a true breath of fresh air. I rarely get to the end of a mystery/suspense novel without having figured out “whodunnit” this book took me on a ride and I never saw “THAT” coming! #ourlittlelies #suewatson #whodunnit #didntseethatcoming #perfectlychilling #thesuspenseisthrillingme #bookworm

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.

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...
