Book Reviews, Literary News, and Thoughts on Life
Tomorrow, April 10, I will be participating in Dewey’s 24-hour read-a-thon (though I rather doubt I will be reading for the full 24 hours – I’m shooting for at least 12). I’m heading to the library tonight when I get off from work to pick up some books to read in addition to what is already on my TBR pile, grab some snacks from the grocery, and get set to read all day tomorrow. I just hope the weather is pleasant tomorrow so I can read a bit outside as well.
Will you join me tomorrow in being a crazy reading fool? Head on over here to sign up!
ETA: I did some pre-library shopping, so I know the order of various series and exactly what my library has available, which will leave me more time for snack shopping and making. I’ve decided upon a variety of cozy mysteries, as I’m creating a reading list of popular titles and authors for one of my grad school classes. I figure if I am combining school with pleasure, then technically I’m not wasting my time. It’s a win-win situation. These are the books I will be picking up:
Amelia Peabody by Elizabeth Peters:
Vicky Bliss by Elizabeth Peters:
Jacqueline Kirby by Elizabeth Peters:
Hamish Macbeth by M.C. Beaton:
Brother Cadfael by Ellis Peters:
Mr. and Mrs. Darcy Mysteries by Carrie Bebris:
Jane Austen Mysteries by Stephanie Barron:
The Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner:
This is probably much more than I need (though I do read fast), but several authors are new to me, so I don’t know if I will like them or not. This will give me some options in case some of them are not quite what I’m looking for.
ETA: How perfect is it that Reading With Tequila is hosting a Cozy Mystery Challenge? I’m in!
