I'm decidedly not a sci-fi reader, but add a murder mystery and you might just pull me in. This was engaging, science-heavy without leaving me behind, and fast-paced. You can't ask for more when it's not your genre.

I'm super behind on reviews/book challenge posts and I'm never going to catch up, so I'm only posting something that can count for #booked2021, which I miiiiiiiiight be able to pull off.

This is a historical thriller and it's heavy on the historical, almost to the point of slowness, but I loved all the details of post-Civil War domestic life.

Back in my happy place: an antiques-filled cabin in Glenford, OH for the week. This was a surprise sanctuary last year when my birthday plans were cancelled and I'm so happy to have time to relax now that my cast is off and amid a really personally difficult year. With so many new things to sniff, Joseph is also a fan.

The Layover | Lacie Waldon

Pickpick

So, confession: I don't think I've ever read a romance that I actually found romantic. The focus so often seems to be on the physical attraction that the buildup to the relationship gets lost for me. This one, though, I found really romantic. I related to a lot of elements and I loved that it was a romantic comedy that didn't jump straight to sex.

This is technically a thriller but it has a pretty strong ghost presence in it say I'm counting it as horror. Spooky isolated Icelandic towns and a decades-old mystery make for some creepy late-night listening.

3. This book is a take on the locked-room mystery, one in which the detective himself is locked inside with the murderer and the victim. Do you think this plot is believable? Did it feel fresh, given what you know of the trope?

2. Christie has hinged several mysteries on the idea that no one notices "the help." Do you think this is true? Is this a product of the time and culture or do you think this still happens today?

#agathachristieclubR2

TheAromaofBooks Even though I didn't reread this one in September, this is still a really interesting question to me. I definitely think people don't tend to notice “the help“, especially people who wear uniforms. I'm not sure it comes from a place of... superiority or whatever, though, as much as just our brains see the uniform & equate it to a person/position & move on. Of course, I'm horribly unobservant anyway, so maybe it's just me 😂 2mo
Laughterhp Yes, I think it can be true that no one notices the help. Probably more back then than now. Though I too can be super unobservant. @TheAromaofBooks 2mo

A book set in a sex shop is decidedly not for me (I prefer my romances more stolen glances than frank conversation) but the couple is still very cute. I wish the conflict had been stronger than "I can't use my words," though.
