Well summer has officially started and it's even getting hot here in the mountains. Almost up to 80 yesterday and likely very hot in the valley. So it's time for a post about what's been read and what's on the plate for summer reading.
I've been on a mystery kick for a while now. I've read through every one of C.J. Sansom Matthew Shardlake mysteries, set in Tudor England. I love historical fiction and especially of this general Middle Ages period. This series did not disappoint one bit. I am waiting for the next one to come out with baited breath.
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks was an engrossing read and worth all the hype it's getting.
Another worthy non-fiction read that was consumed was The Devil's Rooming House: The True Story of America's Deadliest Female Serial Killer. You'll never look at Arsenic and Old Lace again in quite the same way!
Rounding out the already digested selections are mysteries by David Liss, all good but I have to say his stand alone Whiskey Rebels was my favorite.
So, what's on the Kindle pile now.
Dark Star Safari, the only travel book by Paul Theroux I haven't read, sadly not available as a Kindle edition.
And finally, the beginning of the Joliffe mysteries by Margaret Frazer.
So, what's on everyone else's night stand? Hmmmmmmm
