Update on my 3rd Quarter TBR:
- Malice at the Palace by Rhys Bowen ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
- Dumb Witness by Agatha Christie ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
- Death Wears a Beauty Mask by Mary Higgins Clark DNF
After some ranting I skimmed the end of the title story – meh. I’m not bothering with the rest of the book.
- The Melody Lingers On by Mary Higgins Clark ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
- Superfluous Women by Carola Dunn ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
- The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George DNF
I really loved the actual bookstore scenes, and the quotes about books were divine, but mostly I was just bored. I felt like if I kept reading this book I would end up in a reading slump. 😦 I’ve since discovered that my library has an eaudio version, so I might try again someday.
- Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
- Kes by Robin McKinley ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
- Uprooted by Naomi Novik DNF
This makes me sad. Several people whose opinions on books I trust really enjoyed this one. However, at 50% in I was bored. I didn’t really care about any of the characters, the plot is incredibly rambling, the “romance” is squicky, etc. Sigh.
- The Philosopher Kings by Jo Walton DNF
This is getting ridiculous y’all! I loved The Just City and I was super excited for the sequel, but about halfway through this book (and therefore halfway through the trilogy) the author took a strongly anti-Christian stand. I feel like that was her agenda for the series all along.
