I have one library request pending and last week I picked up a few extra books but this is it. I am going on a library ban for a couple of weeks. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to hold out but I really need to read more from my stacks.
So here are the books I recently picked up. Honestly I may not even get to read them but I checked them out because I wanted to make sure to add them to my TBR list and I thought if I had a bit more time to look through them then I would be sure to add them to my list.
- Anatomy of Murder by Imogen Robertson. From the cover, London, 1781. The streets seethe with rumor and conspiracy as the king’s navy battles the French. And while the banks of the Thames swarm with the hustle and bustle of life, a body is dragged form its murky waters.
- The Rhetoric of Death by Judith Rock. From reviews, First-novelist Rock brings firsthand knowledge of dance, choreography, acting, police investigation, and teaching to the beginning of a mystery series set in seventeenth-century Paris and featuring Jesuit teacher Charles du Luc.
- Ghosts Know by Ramsey Campbell. A straight-shooting radio talk-show host and a glib fake psychic make intriguing sparring partners in this suspenseful thriller
Have you read any of these? Should I start one now?
Actually I do have a few other library books out but those are renewals. I think my library ban should really be longer to have any effect on my reading stacks but I don’t know how long I can resist checking out new books. They are so tempting aren’t they? What have you checked out recently?
