This Week in Reading

Finished -

I'll review these when I finish all 5 books in the Tommy and Tuppence series.  

I'm reading:

This Week's Distractions -

Waking the Dead.  I discovered this BBC show on Netflix and I've been binge watching it ever since.  The focus is on a cold case unit run by smart but not tactful Detective Superintendent Peter Boyd who is pared with 2 other detectives, a psychologist and a forensic specialist.  The crimes are interesting and the character development is good.  I love that unlike most shows they don't try to make them a family.  They respect each other and some of them are friends but they also get on each other's nerves quite frequently.  It's a good solid British Police Procedural that looks into old cases.  Loving it!  I've only go 2 seasons left and I'm going to be very sad when it's over.

I've also been watching The Taste.  If there's a cooking competition I normally end up watching it.  An added bonus is that I absolutely love Nigella Lawson.  So far she hasn't done very well and I wonder if her lack of professional experience is a detriment in being able to pick a team.  

It's far too cold to do anything other than read and watch TV when I'm not doing all the everyday stuff.  Right now I just want to hibernate with my Kindle.
