stats, The pile, week in books

The Week In Books: August 11 – August 17

Nightshifts start today (Monday) so I spent this week concentrating on reading a couple of books that I have ahead of their release so that I can write reviews on them.  I’m not good at reading anything complex on Nightshifts (see my post about Nightshift reading matter here) and they run right up until the books come out, so I couldn’t guarantee that I’d manage to read them during the nights.  Plus I really wanted to read them!


The Mysterious Affair at Castaway House by Stephanie Lam

The Fortune Hunter by Daisy Goodwin

Pastors’ Wives by Lisa Takeuchi Cullen

Beyond Seduction by Stephanie Laurens

August Folly by Angela Thirkell


Not Quite a Wife by Mary Jo Putney

Death and the Dancing Footman by Ngaio Marsh

Still reading:

The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert

I bought three books and a cook book this week.  Managed to resist the lure of a second-hand book stall at a fair today – and am still valiantly resisting the urge to buy myself the next Meg Langslow book – perhaps I’ll treat myself at the end of nightshifts!
