I like Josephine Tey, too. 'Brat Farrar', 'The Franchise Affair' and 'The Daughter of Time' are my favorites. Oh, and 'Miss Pym Disposes'. Forgot that one.

Just finished The Man in the Queue which is the first of the Alan Grant series by Tey. What a twist! No way could I see that coming although there were a few subtle hints.

Surprisingly, I finished three of my four current books all at the same time.

Murder's a Witch by by Danielle Garret. Not bad. Some interesting characters.

And for Non-fiction, Helmets and Lipstick: An Army Nurse in World War II by Ruth G. Haskell. Interesting glimpse into the workings of the medical corps in Africa, but they moved around so much it was impossible to invest in any of the people. That's part of the reality, though, isn't it. People being transferred, injured, sent home, killed. Close friendships are made through hardship and danger and those friendships could be torn apart at any moment.

I have a way to go on my audiobook because I only get to listen while I walk the dog. In the meantime, I need to start three more books to replace those I finished.

Not all of Tey are favorites of mine, but Brat Farrar is. I'm generally too cheap to replace anything I have in paper with the ebook version, but I did with that one because my paperback copy was held together with a rubber band around it.

I had pretty much the same problem with all my Agatha Christie and Rex Stout. I didn't know about Tey until maybe 15 years ago so her PBs were a lot newer.

Yesterday I finished The Forgotten Beasts of Eld. I quite enjoyed it. It was lyrical and well-written, and I was caught up with the heroine and the story. I'm happy I finally got to this book.

Stanley Bentworth Mysteries (books 1-3) by our own Al Stevens. I'm only on the first one but I'm enjoying the characters in particular. $2.99 for three books.

The Palace Job by Patrick Weekes. I reading that one on my phone and I don't get to read on my phone very often so it will take me a while to finish.

Diabetics Behaving Badly also by Al Stevens. Quite an eye opener. I'm going to be recommending that to my neighbor who has let himself get way out of control.

Listening to Northanger Abbey, Jane Austen. I don't think I realized it was done radio style with different narrators voicing each character. I find it very distracting because each new narrator changes the rhythm.

I finally read some Dean Koontz.  I really enjoyed Odd Thomas, so I'll have to read the rest of the series.

I've started Tracy Barrett's The Stepsister's Tale.  It seems pretty interesting.

I've got several Harlequins, which I pretty much always enjoy, on my loans list.

Diabetics Behaving Badly by Al Stevens--some new info there I passed on to others.
The Killing Floor by Lee Child--first in the series, and I can understand why it impressed people.
Die Trying by Lee Child--I'm filling in the holes; I started with The Affair, which is kind of an origin story.
A Man with One of Those Faces by Caimh McDonnell, billed as Thriller and Suspense on an ENT ad, and pretty fecking hilarious so far. It's a first in a series, too.

I'm reading the late horror author Michael McDowell's books. He is so so good. His writing is flawless and his monsters are very creative and unpredictable. He's from Alabama and the Deep South and southern family power dynamics are heavy parts of his books. He went on to write the screenplays for Nightmare Before Christmas and Beetlejuice.

I've read Blackwater (which is amazing) and The Elementals, and have just started Candles Burning, which Tabitha King finished for him after he died from AIds complications at age 49 in 1999.

He may or may not be a rabble-rouser; but he is a Libertarian, not an Anarchist.

Dr. Block is a rabble-rousing anarchist and takes a lot of flak for his views, even from other anarchists. Personally, I find his perspective fascinating.

I found a couple weeks ago that I'd read "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" years ago, and had only started "Through the Looking-Glass." I re-read the first and yesterday finished the other. I quite enjoyed reading both of them. Fun little books, and two more classics are taken care of. I'm going to pause for a bit to think about what I want to read next. It will probably be something much more recent.

I'm about 80% of the way through Adrian Tchaikovsky's SciFi novel Children of Time and pretty entertained. Definitely some lol-worthy moments in the book, curious to see how he wraps it up and what the sequel will be like when it comes out in a couple of months.

I'm reading Gray Matter by Nick Pirog. I absolutely adored his Speed of Souls which is completely different than anything else of his that I've read. I liked his 3 A.M. series but it's not something I would read again.

Flood Tide by Cussler. Not his best, not his worst. I think I bought it because it was $1.99 on iTunes a while back when I felt the need to read a thriller, but I may be confusing it with another of his books.

Has an interesting crossover with his Oregon stories, but I'm not sure quite where it fits in time-wise relative to those books; I think I only ever read one of them.

I just finished Mary Balogh's Someone to Care, about a couple in their forties.  Very good.  I'm currently enjoying Dean Koontz's Forever Odd.  Because of the second one, I've learned that azaleas are poisonous.  You learn something new every supernatural mystery.

I picked up a collection of women sleuth mysteries and finished the first book, Louisiana Bigshot by Julie Smith. (the second book is vampires and I’m skipping that) The main is a young, black detective in New Orleans who is also a poet known as Baroness dePontalba. She’s taken a shortened version of the Baroness' name as her own so she’s Talba Wallis.

Really good mystery, good characters and I only have two gripes. Yes, I know it’s hot in the Big Easy in the summer, but do I have to be told every time someone sweats and where they are sweating? Forehead, waist, back, chest, palms and I don’t want to know where else.

The second is a personal gripe. Poetry puts me to sleep. Even two or three lines and my eyelids start to droop. And the Baroness does not write short poems. I’m sure most people would enjoy the poetry or at least not fall asleep over it, but not me. I had to skip it.

Ironically, I’m reading a book based on the life of the daughter of George Gordon Lord Byron. Enchantress of Numbers by Jennifer Chiaverini. “Ada Byron King, Countess of Lovelace—Lord Byron’s daughter and the world’s first computer programmer” Intriguing, right?

But of course, her father was a famed poet and is to this day “she walks in beauty like the night.” See? I’m not a complete poetry Phillistine. So at least in the beginning there is poetry scattered throughout. Her mother wrote poetry, too. At this point, it’s so far so good and I will continue reading, skipping over the rhyming parts.

Yesterday I finished The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal. It was entertaining but also had important things to say about prejudice and mental illness. I'd like to start on the follow-up novel, but as a third is due later this year, I'll wait to get at both then. For now I want to read another book on wish list. Just not sure what that book will be...

I just finished Girls on the Line by Aimie K. Runyon. It's the story of a socialite who volunteers for and serves in the U.S. Army Signal Corps in WWI. The whole setting is an intriguing bit of history I knew nothing about, and it was a keep-me-up-late-reading-to-the-end book for me.

Over the weekend I finished The Fated Sky, the follow-up to The Calculating Stars. I quite enjoyed it. I think I would like to read a bit more about the characters and the alternate timeline Mary Robinette Kowal created. I think the next books I'll read will be one of Gail Carriger's novellas and Theodora Goss' latest.

I read the latest C. S. Harris. Who Slays the Wicked. IMO this is the best historical mystery series out there (Sebastian St. Cyr), although admittedly unless your library has the earlier ones, catching up on the series at this point would be expensive. Grin Set in Regency England and has the reader meeting people from all walks of life, not just aristocrats sipping champagne.

Harris wrote romance before this series as Candice Proctor. Her Whispers of Heaven only became available for Kindle a year or so ago. It's also one of the best historical romances I ever read. Set in Tasmania, year never given, but probably 1840s from the research it had me off doing about convict labor in Australia.

Yesterday I finished Theodora Goss' collection Snow White Learns Witchcraft. It contains both poems and short stories. I really liked the short stories. There were interesting takes on fairy tales and folklore, and they featured interesting heroines. I'm not that much of a fan of poetry, but I did find some of the poems intriguing as well. Well worth picking up.

Yesterday I finished The Bayern Agenda by Dan Moren. It's a space opera spy thriller that takes place in the same universe as his first book, The Caledonian Gambit. The new novel has a strong and twisty plot. I enjoyed the two viewpoint characters and the others they met along the way. I liked that the universe is much more filled out in this novel than in the first. I know about both these books because Moren is on The Incomparable podcast quite a lot.

Yesterday I finished reading Sorcery & Cecilia by Patricia Wrede & Caroline Stevermer. It was a delightful fantasy novel, told entirely in letters between two cousins. Quite a fun read. I was amazed to learn that the authors chose which cousin to write and that the book started out as a letter game between them.

I'm on a Dick Francis binge (thanks for letting us know about the sale, Ellen). Just finished Dead Cert and now I'm reading Rat Race.

Rat Race is somewhat of a departure for Francis as it centers around an air taxi pilot, although so far, he's mainly flying jockeys and trainers to race courses. There is a foreword to the book explaining that both Francis and his wife were highly qualified pilots and actually ran their own air taxi service for several years.

I just downloaded the latest Det Jackson story by L.J. Sellers, A Crime of Hate. It's #14 in the series and I'm really looking forward to reading it.

The last three books I finished and liked:

Dianne Setterfield's Once Upon a River  - I loved The Thirteenth Tale, and also enjoyed this one.  It really does meander along, just like a river.
Laura Bradford's Shunned and Dangerous - It's the third in an Amish cozy mystery series.
Anna Bradley's A Wicked Way to Win an Earl - Regency romance with steamy parts.  I'd like to read the rest of the series.

I'm currently reading Beatriz Williams's A Hundred Summers.  It cuts back and forth between 1931 and 1938, and there's a big hurricane on the horizon.  The descriptions make me want to go to the beach (minus the hurricane, of course, and a frenemy you've known your whole life).
