    Oh, finish Penumbra for sure! It’s amazing!

    And huzzah for Mrs. Pollifax! She’s my new fave hero! I would marathon read her but my library is taking FOREVER getting me the third book. I’ve been on queue for it for a month now! :/

    I also loved Penumbra. Her Royal Spyness is a series I keep meaning to start.

    Uh, oh on The Cold Dish. I got that one because I loved the tv series so much. Looks like it won’t be moving up on my TBR anytime soon.

      I think we’ve discussed Penumbra’s cover before? My mom warned me but the glow in the dark cover still freaked me out a bit. 🙂

      You must try Her Royal Spyness – such a fun series!

      That’s why I got The Cold Dish too. It’s not bad, it’s just grittier than the Longmire show, which isn’t what I prefer to read. I seem to be able to handle gritty shows better than books.

        Yes, that freaky cover on Penumbra. And you’re the one who persuaded me to read the Georgie books. I love her Molly Murphy ones and the old Evan Evans series, but was put off by the fact that Georgie is an aristocrat. Then you told me she has a Cockney gramps and thought the aristocracy ridiculous. They’re on my TBR now.

        Some of the Longmire episodes were a bit too harsh for me, but then it’s only 45 minutes. I think that is what saved it over reading a book. I’ve read a few by other others where almost half the book was too violent for my taste.

    A nicely eclectic list and pretty ambitious. Plus way to go on your last quarter TBR!! I need to catch up on the Carola Dunn series. Mr. Penumbra was a lot of fun – hope you enjoy it!

      I don’t tend to think of myself as an eclectic reader, but there is some variety to this list. I read so much more now that I do these lists! How many of the Carola Dunn books have you read? Penumbra is a re-read so I’m sure I’ll enjoy it. 🙂

        Number 8, Rattle His Bones is the next I have to read in the Carola Dunn series. I stopped for a silly reason – I was enjoying the series on audio and my library ran out of the cds at number 7:). Also, I think you’re pretty eclectic in your reading!

      Jane Eyre is a re-read – I’m planning to listen to an audio version read by actress Amanda Root. I loved her in Persuasion and I’m looking forward to it!

      If I ever read The Little Prince it was so long ago that I don’t remember it. I’m going to read it aloud to my kids. 🙂

      I ❤ your blog’s name!

    I can’t remember if you’ve read any of the Tea Shop Mysteries by Laura Childs before?? I’ve read quite a few of them (although I think there are more out that I haven’t gotten to yet). I think they are cute little cozy mysteries. I’m interested to hear your take!
