Happy Saturday, everybody!! Autumn is just around the corner and that means Halloween is just around the corner. I got a couple of titles to help set the spirit along with a couple of other books that looked interesting.
Dead as a Doornail by Charlaine Harris and Tales from the Nightside by Simon R. Green are definitely a couple of titles to start getting one in the mood for Halloween. I may have more to say on those books later. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab can also help set the tone for that holiday and I’ve already let you know my thoughts here.
The Sign of Four by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle takes me back to where I got my love of detective stories with yet another Sherlock Holmes mystery. I even got a more modern take on murder mystery with Death and the Redheaded Woman by Loretta Ross. It’s not a real heavy story but, it’s very entertaining.
The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah was a surprise discovery. It’s set in World War II France and gives us a peek into the war-torn country. Ms. Hannah allows us to see French society in the microcosm of one French family. It is one of the more touching and poignant stories I’ve read this year.
My lovely bride has treated me again, this time with the Divergent box set. I have yet to read any of the books or even see the movies. Odd since one of my nephew’s is an extra in the second movie.
So, please, let me know what mysteries, myths and memoirs have made it on to your shelves!
