The Week in Books: April 25 – May 1

A super busy week at work and quite a lot of rereading on the list instead of finishing the new stuff that I started. As I said yesterday, April very much the month of binge-rereads as that continues to be pretty much all my brain can cope with. I’m not sure what I can blame it on, but here’s hoping I get my act a bit in gear in May, as the NetGalley list is currently getting longer rather than shorter…


Death on the Ballerat Train by Kerry Greenwood

Worn by Sofi Thanhauser*

Bad Luck by Linwood Barclay

Overture to Death by Ngaio Marsh

That Cowboy of Mine by Caitlin Crews*

The Chalet School and the Island by Elinor M Brent Dyer

Blood and Circuses by Kerry Greenwood


Count Your Lucky Stars by Alexandria Bellefleur

Ask a Historian by Greg Jenner

Miss Aldridge Regrets by Louise Hare*

The Book Share by Phaedra Patrick*

Still reading:

Paper Lion by George Plimpton

Fire Court by Andrew Taylor*

Plan for the Worst by Jodi Taylor

The Fake Up by Justin Myers*

I Was Better Last Night by Harvey Fierstein

One bought, that’s it. Positively restrained.

Bonus photo: My attempt at repotting Fernando the Fern came to a bit of a tricky moment when I realised that I had underestimated how much compost the new pot would need and overestimated how much I have in stock!

An * next to a book title indicates that it came from NetGalley. ** indicates it was an advance copy from a source other than NetGalley
