I didn‘t read this in October but I have several Christmas reads from this series on my iPad. I figured I should read the first in the series to get introduced to the characters and setting. It held my interest enough to read more.
I don‘t usually read out of order, but I‘m making an exception with this and the Lucy Stone series for #BookedByHoliday reads.

Just like I wouldn't want to be a friend of Bosch because people in his life tend to get dead or seriously injured, I also wouldn't want to be too close to Mickey Haller. And I haven't spent much time in courtrooms, but I would be really surprised if they were this dramatic so much of the time. Still, this is a fun story that kept me listening.

Loved the connection to Shakespeare's MACBETH and the setting in Scotland. Fast-paced and scholarly. I might have to read again and take notes--LOTS to research!

The Thursday Murder Club | Richard Osman

I read The Thursday Murder Club as a digital ARC, then bought the paperback for hubby, as he doesn‘t do digital books.

But, I was looking at my shelves earlier this week and thought I could do with a hardback copy to match the other two.

I popped into the local charity shop, purely to drop books off, you understand, when lo and behold, what did I spot?! Yes, you guessed it, an almost pristine hardback copy of The Thursday Murder Club for Q9.50!

LeahBergen It was meant to be! 👏 3h

Final #november #bookspinbingo board @TheAromaofBooks

Out of the six books I read, In My Dreams I Hold a Knife was probably my favorite. Flew through it, couldn't put it down. Wasn't out of this world but a fantastic read. Overall a good month. Hopefully will keep the momentum into December.

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! Fantastic month!!! 1h

I missed Day 1 of #AdventRecommends so will play catch up and post two today. For this Challenge I am going to post two of my favourite books from each month.

Day 1 Loved the #ReadingAfrica2022 Challenge this year and really enjoyed this book set in Nigeria, short but hugely entertaining and different. Thanks to @Librarybelle and @BarbaraBB for this challenge. January Book 1

I started the Brother Cadfael series this year and I've really enjoyed the first three books. Cadfael is a monk, but also a thoughtful and kind detective, and the books offer a good look into life in medieval England and Wales.
