I know that this group has been quite pretty much all year, but I wanted to pop on and say that I hope you all are having a good holiday season and that you have time to enjoy some old favorite books and maybe find some great new ones, too. I know that I have found some of my most loved stories through many of your recommendations, so if you want to continue this group I would be happy to join in.

I have really been enjoying the No. 1 Ladies Detective novels lately by Alexander McCall Smith. I read the first three many years ago and now I have found the others through my library.  I have discovered and read all the books by Ruth Ware, they are pretty good. Many others, too.

Happy Reading

Just finished Jodi Picoult's Small Great Things.  I've been disappointed with Jodi's last couple novels but this one is a winner!!!!

Just finished "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie" by Alan Bradley. It's a mystery set in 1950 in England. The protagonist is an 11 year girl. I wasn't sure I'd like it, but trusted the friend who gave it to me. I was hooked from the first page! And even better, it's the first in a series, so I have more to look forward to.

Just picked up Elizabeth's Peters final Amelia Peabody book, The Painted Queen, from library. Also, the latest Aurora Teagarden mystery by Charlaine Harris. Won't get much done this week between reading and work!

Janet, just started The Sound of Glass a day or two ago.  Haven't had much time to read so I'm less than 100 pages in but enjoying it!  What a coincidence!

I just reading The Sound of Glass by Karen White.  It had a really different kind of twist to the plot, but I enjoyed it.

I have been reading a series of murder mysteries by a man named Brian Freeman.  I am on the 5th one now.  They mainly take place near Duluth MN/Superior WI, but also have parts in Las Vegas.  Not necessarily books for the feint of heart though.  If anyone reads these books, I recommend starting with the 1st one entitled "Immoral".  The storylines themselves are not really affected if you read them out of sequence, but it will help you understand the characters themselves better.

Good Morning Ladies...my reading has slowed way down to a crawl...I have to put drops in my eyes 2x a day and they play havoc with my reading....but I am reading a cozy mystery by Miranda James .."Arsenic and Old Books"..they have a Maine Coon Cat in the story, which I love to hear about his behavior...(we have three of them in our family..).the story is very interesting and moves on quickly...I will probably read all of her books...she holds my attention!
I have been watching a lot of P.D.James books..on UTube.(BBC)..love his stories!! But have never read any of the stories..so I picked up 2 of his stories to read...his stories have a lot of twist and turns...
