It happened again. I didn’t mean to be away from the blog but I was quite busy at work. That also means that I haven’t been reading a lot but I do have some great books that have been on my nightstand.

Let’s start with Small Island by Andrea Levy. I’m sure I heard about this one when it first came out and there was a lot of talk about it but then I forgot I had it on my shelf and as I’ve been reading this one I am thinking what took me so long. Great story about Jamaican immigrants to England after the end of WWII and how they’ll adjust to their new homes.

Next is The Murder Farm by Andrea Maria Schenkel. I read one book by this author before and liked it and so I’m glad I had another to read for German Lit Month. A whole family has been murdered and the reader tries to put the pieces together by third hand accounts, case files and different narrators. It’s a slim book and I should have already finished it but there’s a few others keeping me away from this one.

The Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths. I have loved her series featuring Ruth Galloway and when my reading group chose this as the November read I was excited to pick about it. Unfortunately due to work I couldn’t make it to my book group meeting (virtual) which in a way I’m glad about now as I hadn’t finished the book. It’s too good. If you like mysteries set in the world of academia you are going to enjoy this!

Not pictured here are two kindle reads:

The Witch Hunter by Max Seeck. A Finnish thriller about a bestselling author whose wife has been murdered. As the number of cases grow the investigators realize that who ever is committing the crimes is basing them off of the author’s books. Good thriller and so far I cannot figure out how this will end.

Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. I picked this one up for Nonfiction November and it is very bit as good as readers have said. I know that our criminal justice system is flawed but reading this makes you realize just how much it is so. It’s an incredible read and even without finishing it I can already recommend it.

Alright friends that’s the book scoop here at Casa Bookgirl. How have you been? Hopefully reading a lot of good books.
