Currently Reading

Three good books are all demanding my attention right now. Here’s what I’m reading:

  • What Angels Fear by C.S. Harris.
    “It had been a long night, a night of brandy fumes and cigar smoke, of faro and vingt-et-un and a promise made to a sad-eyed woman – a promise that he would not kill, however much the man he had come here to meet might deserve killing.”

    Sebastian St. Cyr is a young nobleman shattered by his experience in the Napoleonic Wars and now running for his life.
  • The Case of Madeleine Smith by Rick Geary.
    “How does a well-born and respectable young lady find herself under arrest for the ultimate crime?”
    A graphic novel about the scandalous secret affair in 19th century Scotland between an upperclass woman and a gentleman of lower standing ends in his murder by poison…
  • Hearts and Minds by Rosy Thornton.
    “For Martha the start of a new academic year always brought a thrill of excitement: a sense, shared with the newcomers, of infinite possibilities – the ideals as yet uncompromised, the hopes as yet unqualified, the brand new stationery.”
    A novel about life in a women-only Cambridge college and the pitfalls that await its new Head of House, a man.

And, of course I have a pile of books waiting to be reviewed, read and so on. Sorry for the short post but I’m going back to the books.
