Thanks for the tag, @CouronneDhiver !

1. Probably the #24in48 #readathon in July. Also, things to return to normal at the library - we just debuted our new computer system yesterday, so one major hurdle down!
2. Not summer, but very soon Anthony Horowitz‘s The Sentence Is Death will be published in the US
3. Berries and cream
4. 105-110??
5. Wanna play? Consider yourself tagged! #thursdaysurvey

What do Jane Austen, Mary Shelley, and Joan of Arc have in common? Shorr looks at what she terms each woman‘s defining hour and how that moment influenced them. I was so intrigued by these three women connected in a book that I had to check it out (and order it for the library). It will be interesting to see the connections...

Heideschrampf Sounds awesome! 1d

Two Can Keep a Secret | Karen M. Mcmanus
post image
Pickpick

Though I think her first book was a little bit better, I still enjoyed this YA mystery/thriller. So many secrets in Echo Ridge - and when disappearances start happening, it brings up memories of another crime from twenty years ago. The very end was creepy! McManus has a knack for writing thrillers.

HeatherBlue Loved the last line soooo much!!! 4d

@TheHeartlandBookFairy is once again hosting a summer challenge, reading or averaging a book of week between Memorial Day and Labor Day (US observed holidays). There‘s an extra week this year, so it‘s #14books14weeks . I‘ve scoured my shelves for books I need for challenges, or books that have been calling to me. Crossing my fingers that my work schedule calms down soon so I can do this! Thanks for hosting again, @TheHeartlandBookFairy !

TheHeartlandBookFairy Great stack! Good luck and, keep us posted 😁 5d
Ashley_Nicoletto I am very curious about this. 5d
Librarybelle @Ashley_Nicoletto If you visit @TheHeartlandBookFairy ‘s post, she has more details. Last year, she hosted #13books13weeks , which encouraged participants to read 13 books during the 13 weeks between Memorial Day and Labor Day. It was fun! Just a way to get through the tbr pile...you post what you plan to read for the challenge. 5d

It‘s time for another #buddyread , hosted by @CouronneDhiver & @Librarybelle ! We‘re reading the short story collection Fall of Poppies, stories set during World War I.

This is an informal, low-pressure buddy read. Used the above reading guide as a suggestion...many of us finish ahead of schedule, and many of us finish after! Let us know you‘ll join us, use #FallOPFiction in your posts, and tag us. We look forward to another fun buddy read!

Mollyanna Woohoo! Love these buddy reads. 5d

It‘s clear that Goldberg loved Cobain, and he admits his writing is pretty slanted. But, this is a beautiful tribute to the legend Kurt Cobain. Chronicling Nirvana‘s career, Goldberg writes from his perspective as the band‘s manager. This book also serves as a tiny chronicle in punk and grunge music history. I want to binge Nirvana‘s music now and rewatch the music videos to glimpse the nuances discussed in this book. Nirvana fans...read this!

This is my second time reading the book, but my first time listening to it. I enjoyed it as much as I did the first time! A story within a story, with two murders that may or may not be tied together. The narration was perfection. Can‘t wait to hear what my mystery discussion group has to say about it tomorrow night.

Some of my fondest childhood memories include listening to my dad‘s mixed tapes on car rides...he‘d create tapes from records. Guaranteed I was one of a handful of kids in the ‘80s and early ‘90s who knew the words to many Creedence Clearwater Revival songs. To read this passage that Kurt was in a CCR cover band touched me deeply. And, of course the flannel. No wonder grunge speaks to me...

A group of nine friends decide to spend New Year‘s Eve at a remote lodge in the Scottish Highlands. Each have secrets, and for one of them, this will be the last New Year‘s Eve they celebrate. I loved the writing but didn‘t have the warm fuzzies for the characters. The narrative changes perspective between the characters - I suspected who the victim was about halfway through, but couldn‘t guess the killer until the end. Worthy read!

MidnightBookGirl I really liked this book too! 1w

Here are some titles I found quickly going my shelves, @CouronneDhiver . I pulled a Beatriz Williams (thanks @Melissa_J for the suggestion!), as well as a compilation of Willig and Williams and others, and two titles set in the 1910s and 1920s. I‘ll tag the books in the comments. Any of these sound good to you? I can also keep looking - I have lots of historical fiction! #buddyread

Nanreath Hall has its share of secrets. With a dual timeline, Rickloff looks at the inhabitants during the 1st and 2nd World Wars. A little long in parts, but the hint of mystery and the writing style kept me going. Overall, I liked this. It‘s a historical fiction that‘s a quick read.

April was a rough month at the library - so many great new things, but so many late hours! The last big piece - a new circulation system - debuts in less than two weeks. I‘ll be so happy when that is up and running!

Book Three in the Burning Cove series involves a former trapeze artist, a possible mob connection, a stolen piece of spy equipment, and murder and mayhem. Perfect escape book - easy reading with a hint of suspense. And, of course, romance. Amanda Quick (aka Jayne Ann Krentz) has another winner with this one. Thanks to the publisher and #NetGalley for the the ARC.

They All Fall Down | Rachel Howzell Hall

Seven strangers are invited to an island for the weekend. Little do they know the secrets they keep will cost them dearly. Written in homage to Christie‘s classic And Then There Were None, Hall‘s work doesn‘t shine like the original, but it has a few spooky parts. Add an unreliable narrator, and you get a twisty story that makes you wonder who‘s telling the truth. Worth a read.

I made #SebastianKitty model for the picture. #catsoflitsy

If you‘re looking for a basic, quick biography on the daughters of England‘s Charles I, this is a good starting point. If you want something a little meatier, check elsewhere. In this short biography, Watkins gives a basic sketch of Charles I‘s daughters, all who tragically died before reaching the age of 30. She also interlaces the political turmoil of the era, using a slightly choppy narrative. Thank you to the publisher and #NetGalley .

The Sittaford Mystery | Agatha Christie

Pickpick

I weighed between a so-so and a pick with this one, and the pick side won. Emily Trefusis is a great heroine and sleuth. A few dated phrases suggesting women can only function with a man are sprinkled throughout - this doesn‘t phase Emily! Not as spooky as I had hoped, but Christie kept my interest. I‘m reading chronologically as part of the #agathachristieclub , and I‘ve enjoyed seeing Christie cultivate her craft. She is truly a master!
