This Week in Reading

What I Read:

I didn't really know what to expect with this one but I ended up really loving it.  I'm going to try and find a copy of the movie that was (very) loosely based on the first short story.  

This was the last one in stand alone or non-series books that Agatha published in the 1920s.  This decade is full of adventure stories with hints of romance and espionage and really provide some fun reading!

This was my first book in the long running Lake Eden/Hannah Swenson series and I enjoyed it.  The review will be up tomorrow.  Definitely worth a read if you like cozy mysteries.

What I'm Reading:

Also published as The Sittaford Mystery.  I'm about a third of the way in and am really enjoying.  This is one of hers that I forget about completely so I get to re-discover it every time I reread it.

Sigh.  The best thing I can say about this one is that I think the cover is pretty.  I'm about 40% into it and the only reason I'll probably finish it is because it's a review copy.  It's not awful it's just kind of boring.  The review should be up Wednesday.

What's Been Distracting Me:

J has been working crazy amounts of overtime which means my TV watching has significantly increased.  I don't know what it is but when he's not here I end up staying up way later watching TV instead of going to bed at a reasonable hour and than reading to an unreasonable hour.  Emma and I have been getting through our tremendous backlog of Criminal Minds lately.  We're almost up to Christmas so at some point we'll be caught up!
