An interesting week in reading and an interesting week in general, which was somewhat derailed by a train failure on my way to work on Saturday – which not only made me late for work but also deprived me of an hour of reading time. Gah. On the brightside, I have a whole string of posts lined up for you because I had a rare burst of creativity in the middle of the week. I am almost pleased with myself.
False Value by Ben Aaronovitch
Staging is Murder by Grace Topping
Dimsie Moves Up by Dorita Fairlie Bruce
The Fall of the House of Byron by Emily Brand*
An Heiress to Remember by Maya Rodale
Logging Off by Nick Spalding*
Strangers and Cousins by Leah Hager Cohen
Reticence by Gail Carriger
Defy and Defend by Gail Carriger
She-Merchants, Buchaneers and Gentlewomen by Katie Hickman
The Cuckoos of Batch Magna by Peter Maughan
Still not counting how many books I’ve bought, but Defy and Defend came out on Sunday, so how could I not, and a copy of the new Roasting Tin cook book also found it’s way to my house.
Bonus photo: My mum found my grandpa’s nail scissors being pressed into use this week to cut twine in the garden, and there is a family joke about them never being used for their proper purpose. It made me laugh last week, so here is a photo my mum took of them, with a mug for scale.
An * next to a book title indicates that it came from NetGalley.
