My third finish for #SuperSeptember. The fifth book in the Phryne Fisher series and we have a murder in a jazz club to start the action. There is also a plane flight to the Australian Alps and a visit to a hermit in the mountains.

As always Phryne is tenacious, courageous and full of lust. I enjoy these romps and look forward to the next in the series.

Andrew65 Great 👏👏👏 I need to get back to this series. 1w
Mollyanna @Andrew65 Thanks. They are quick reads, usually around 200 pages. 1w

My second finish for #SuperSeptember. This finishes my re-reading via audio of Outlander books I read many years ago. I forgot how all encompassing this book was to the Fraser clan.

I look forward to reading more of the “new” ones now.

Andrew65 That‘s a big book, well done 👏👏👏 1w
Mollyanna @Andrew65 It was a chunkster! But Davina Porter is such a great narrator that it was like visiting an old fiend. 1w

My first finish for #SuperSeptember

This was a cute cozy mystery. It is set at a B&B in Hemlock Falls. I liked the cast of characters and the setting. I look forward to listening to more in the series.

The narrator did an excellent job.

Another #StarWarsBuddyRead book finished. I‘m doing my best to get caught up.

Another MG novel in the High Republic Era. I liked this one as well. I wish there was more Vernestra in it, but I liked Lula, Ram and Zeen. The Bonbraks were hilarious in their upgrades of V18. Looking forward to the next book.

BookwormAHN I agree Vernestra is one of my favorites. 3w

Finally making some time to catch up on #StarWarsBuddyRead

This is my first High Republic novel and I really enjoyed it, especially J-6 (who doesn‘t love a droid with attitude). Although a MG book, it handled topics such as grief and integrity really well. I‘m looking forward to more of these novels.

BookwormAHN So far the MG ones have been my favorite 😺 1mo
Mollyanna Good to know. I‘m about 1/3 of the way through the next MG and am really enjoying it. 1mo

I almost made 20 hours this time around for the #20in4 finishing with 18 hours and 3 minutes

I finished one book: Just One Damned Thing After Another

Came close to finish two other books. I didn‘t quite hit all my goals, but considered this readathon a success.

Thanks for hosting @Andrew65

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 I need to read this. 1mo

Mollyanna @Texreader I loved this book and can‘t wait to read more in the series. Thanks for letting me know about the short stories, I will keep an eye out for this year‘s 😍. 1mo
Texreader Actually I‘m embarrassed to say after reading all the short stories up to whatever year it was, I asked for her whole series for Christmas and I got it! But I‘ve only read book 1 plus all the short stories. Now there are new books in the series I‘ll eventually have to get to keep up with the series! 1mo
Mollyanna @Texreader 😊. You can savor the series then…. I‘ll definitely have to check out the short stories. 1mo
julesG @Texreader If you only read the short stories, you'll have read lots of spoilers for the books. I'd read the books and shorts in order. 1mo

#WondrousWednesday on Friday. I was in travel this week for work, and it was kind of a crazy week.

1. done
2. Haven‘t had a chance to read a lot this month, so it was probably Death at Victoria Dock by Kerry Greenwood. Phryne Fisher is always fun to hang out with for a bit.
3. That‘s a tough one… Prague, Alaska and Key West.

Thanks for the tag @Eggs

JenReadsAlot Prague was a favorite for me too! 1mo

So this was an interesting book. Not sure how I feel about it. There are parts that I really enjoyed and then there was some character development (not even sure if it was development) that I didn‘t like. Definitely outside my normal reads…. I am intrigued enough to try book 2 in the series.

The narrator did an excellent job!

#WondrousWednesday on Thursday! Thank you for the tag @Eggs

1. Absolutely! I think my most recent one was Monday‘s Not Coming by Tiffany D. Jackson (I just want to comfort Claudia…)
2. Best part of the week: it‘s Thursday and almost over
Worst part of the week: overwhelming workload before being out a week in mandatory training.

First finish for #JubilantJuly. The second in the Electra McDonnell series. This continues Ellie‘s adventures with Major Ramsey and his intelligence unit. This time a female body has been found in the Thames with an intricate bracelet on her wrist. Ellie is called upon to get the bracelet off and open a small locket attached. I liked this one. It showed growth for Ellie, Felix and Major Ramsey. Looking forward to the next one.

Mollyanna @robinb Thanks for posting about this book. I didn‘t know book 2 had been released. 😊 3mo

Outfox | Sandra Brown

Mehso-so

This is my second finish for #20in4. Outfox is the story of a serial killer and the man who is hunting him… Sounds exciting, right? We‘ll, it wasn‘t so much. There were parts that were intriguing, but overall it was just meh. Even the twists weren‘t that great. Sandra Brown may just not be for me.

The narrator did a decent job though.

First finish for #20in4. This is the second in the Meg Langslow series. Donna Andrews writes very quirky characters and there is always humor in her novels. This was a short cozy mystery that let us get to know the Langslow clan a bit better.

The fourth in the series. This book finds Jacobia and Ellie trying to track down a lost Stradivarius. A supposed relative comes to stay to write a dissertation, but things aren‘t connecting…. And so ensues the mystery. This one was decent, not the best of the series (thanks to a bit of teenage angst…). I‘ll continue with the aeries. The narrator of the audiobooks does a fabulous job!

The final book in George Dillman/Genevieve Masefield series. Set in the 1920s, our main pair are married private detectives on the White Star Line. In this installment there are thefts, a murder, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle aboard and a medium who conducts séances. As always , it was well written and very enjoyable. I will miss spending time with George and Genevieve.
