Mystery Monday

I went to my Murder on Mondays book group tonight even though I hadn’t read the book (The Blue Edge of Midnight). It seemed that either people loved it or hated it. I don’t know if I’ll read it as I already heard how it ends but I do know I am looking forward to our next selections.

In November we’ll read Murphy’s Law by Rhys Bowen. I love historical mysteries so this one already sounds good to me. For December we have Hercule Poirot’s Christmas by Agatha Christie. In December we always try to read something with a Christmas theme and we also bring treats. I need to bribe one of my best friends who also goes to my book group to make an extra treat and I can take it. I don’t want to poison my book group members with any of my cooking – talk about a Murder on a Monday!

Last night I started reading The Dirty Duck by Martha Grimes. I realize this year I’ve been reading fewer mysteries and I miss them. Then again, I’ve been discovering some new genres and that’s been fun so I shouldn’t complain. Basically, there’s never enough time for all the reading I want to do.

But speaking of mysteries has everyone seen The Literate Kitten’s new Horror Short Story Challenge? I’m joining in. It’s so easy and I love scary stories so I can’t say no. I still haven’t decided which story/stories I want to read but they will either come from my B&N edition of The Essential Tales and Poems of Edgar Allan Poe or The Mammoth Book of Victorian & Edwardian Ghost Stories. I would like to read two or three so I will post more on my choices soon.
