What Are You Reading?

I'm a little over halfway through a debut mystery, Radha Vatsal's A Front Page Affair. It's a story of a young female journalist in 1915 who started out on the Ladies' Page. But, she was covering an event when a guest was murdered, and she's asked to talk with some of the guests. It's a mystery that combines the status of women in 1915 and the pre-war years in the United States.

So, what are you reading today? I'll check back whenever I can.

I am reading Bloodroot by Cynthia Riggs. Not as good as the earlier Victoria Trumbull mysteries. I really like the setting of Martha's Vineyard as well as the 92 year old sleuth.

I am reading Four and Twenty Blackbids by Cherie Priest. I am on a bit of a fantasy/sf kick. It is really good!

It's always fun to see what everyone is reading. Bill's usually really an older mystery. I always like to see what collection Jeff is reading. It's mixed for all the rest of us. Thank you!

The Skipper's Dog's Name Is Stalin by David Black. It's the story of a British sailor on a French Submarine during WWII.

Interesting title, Glen.

I'm on book overload this week. I'm still reading Jerry Eckert's memoir "Weeping Kings & Wild Boars," have Juan Williams' "We the People" checked out of the library in print, and just got "The Martian" off hold at the library on my tablet. And I don't have any time to read until this weekend.

I have read some of the best things lately!
Including an ARC of the new Louise Penny (swoonworthy).
I'm also devouring the J. D. Robb books which I ignored for years 'cause I didn't think they were my cup of tea. Pfft. Suffice to say I was wrong.
