Not a lot of reading, but I’m plugging along. I finished Jeffrey Siger’s Sons of Sparta which I enjoyed but didn’t think was as good as the previous two books. Still, it’s a series I enjoy and will certainly read the next when it comes out.
I also read The Silence of the Library by Miranda James, part of the author’s “cat in the stacks” mystery series. It’s a cozy, and while I’m not a big cozy reader, the plot is about collectors of young adult mystery series, and the author of one such (fictional) series who is living and agrees to speak at the local library. That intrigued me, but I thought the book, while entertaining, was pretty much light fluff.
I recently came across mention of a Newberry Medal winner, a mystery, The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin which was new to me. I got it from the library and am about 50 pages into it.
Barbara finished Deadline by John Sandford and is now about halfway through In the Dark by Brian Freeman. Next up for her is Mark Billingham’s The Bones Beneath.
