My local public library is having its semi-annual book sale this weekend! Naturally I headed over there this morning, and I came back with the following:
Richard Stark, The Hunter — A friend recommended this series to me. I haven’t read much noir, but it’s a genre I’m interested in exploring.
Alexander McCall Smith, Portuguese Irregular Verbs — I couldn’t resist the title/cover combo on this one. Also, the plot looks zany and fun.
Anthony Berkeley, The Poisoned Chocolates Case — I’m a sucker for Golden Age mysteries, and this one looks really good!
Edith Pargeter, A Bloody Field by Shrewsbury — I love Edith Pargeter, a.k.a. Ellis Peters. Her Cadfael mysteries are wonderful, so I’m excited to read another of her historical novels set in the Middle Ages.
Josephine Tey, The Daughter of Time — I’ve read this before, and honestly, I didn’t love it the first time. I was expecting more of a traditional mystery, which this book definitely is not. But so many people love it that I decided to give it another chance. It was only 50 cents, so why not?
Kristan Higgins, My One and Only — I’m slowly accumulating Higgins’ romances. What can I say? They’re light, fun, enjoyable reads.
I’m going back tomorrow afternoon with a friend, so maybe I’ll have more to add to this list later!
