What Are You Reading This Weekend?

One of favorite authors, Donis Casey, has a new Alafair Tucker mystery out, Hell with the Lid Blown Off. I have a copy, but can't read it just yet, because I'm a book behind.








I know what happened. The Wrong Hill to Die On, her last one, came out in November 2012. That was a busy time for me. I was job hunting, and, then, once I accepted my job here in Evansville, I was getting ready to move. Moving just throws everything off.

I have to catch up with Alafair Tucker's family before I can start the next book. So, I'm currently reading The Wrong Hill to Die On, set in Tempe, Arizona, where Alafair, her husband, and daughter, have moved temporarily because of their daughter's health.

So, you can choose to answer any or both questions today. What are you reading this weekend? Or, what series are you behind in reading?

The Donis Casey books are wonderful reading. I recommend them to those who like historical mysteries with strong local settings. HELL WITH THE LID BLOWN OFF is an especially fine example of how Casey tells a good story.

I'm reading the latest Meg Langslow mystery by Donna Andrews, The Good, the Bad, and the Emus.

What series am I behind on? So many. But one I was just reminded of is Jenn McKinnley's Cupcake bakery series. I've read the first one.

Brad Thor's Act of War is my current book. I'm not a huge reader of "series", so I'm not behind in the few I follow. Wow. Now that's something to mark on my calendar—the one thing in which I'm current and up to date. LOL

I've started The 500 by Matthew Quirk so that I can read the sequel.

I am reading Too Big to Miss by Sue Ann Jaffarian, the first of the series. Really enjoying it.
I am behind on many series including the Alafair Tucker series

Hell with the Lid Blown Off ... that's a great title! :-)

It's so nice to read that I'm not the only one who's behind. And, thank you, Joe. It's good to know you liked Hell with the Lid Blown Off. I'm starting it tonight.

I'm reading The Garden of Happy Endings by Barbara O'Neal on your recommendation, Lesa, and I'm enjoying it very much. I needed a rest from mysteries and thrillers for a few days. I'm way behind on John Sandford's two series--Mike buys and reads them and we probably have 8 I haven't read yet--I'll get to them sooner or later!

Lesa said...

Oh, good, Margie! I'm glad you're enjoying it. Sometimes I need a break, too, and a good magical realism novel is a perfect break.

I'm reading all of Louise Penny's novels in order. Am waiting for the next one, Bury Your Dead, from the interlibrary loan system.

I'm behind on Craig Johnson's Longmire series. I had to DVR and save one of the TV episodes because it was based on Hell is Empty! I've gotten side-tracked by both Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin. I read one of each and found them to be like potato chips. I can't stop!

Craig Johnson's latest plus I may have missed one or two short ones. And Spencer Quinn; I think there is a new Chet and Berbie that I have not read.

I'm behind in reading Linda Castillo's Kate Burkholder series.
