I’m currently listening to Top Marks for Murder. Daisy and Hazel are back in Deepdean after being away for the last couple of books. To be honest, I’ve listened and haven’t been able to focus on this one. I think it’s because I’m listening in the evening and not whilst going to work, (as I’m off with Covid), and this just doesn’t work for me. I’ll try again when I’m driving to work. I’m also reading How to Steal the Mona Lisa which is unlike anything I’ve read before. It’s written in a series of emails, blogs, newspaper reports and notes. I’m enjoying the main character who writes with honesty and humour – a brilliant ‘voice’. I think this is going to be a fun mystery. I’m also reading Like a Charm which I’m absolutely loving. Ramya is such a strong character, and I’m really looking forward to finding out more about what is behind the ‘Glamour’.
I finished listening to Death in the Spotlight which I really enjoyed – such a clever mystery. I think it has tied with A Spoonful of Murder as my favourite in the series. I also finished Mort and am so glad I’ve made a start on this series. I’m not sure how to describe it – strange, surreal and scathingly humorous. I’m definitely going to pick up Reaper Man soon. I then read Yesterday Crumb and the Storm in a Teacup as I just needed a cosy, fantasy read that I could escape into for a few hours. I adored this book, and will be posting my review very soon. I also read The Secret of the Treasure Keepers, and have posted my review yesterday. I think this is my favourite of A M Howell’s books. Finally, I listened to The Raven Riddle which was a quick, and very fun, read.
I’m not sure I’m ready for the finale of The Strangeworlds Travel Agency but I really want to know what happens after that ending to book 2! I’m also hoping to pick up a graphic novel, The Rema Chronicles: Realm of the Blue Mist.
Have you read any of these? What are you reading?
