|"Nasturtiums" by Emanuel Phillips Fox (1912)|
I had great reading plans for last week, but you know what they say about the best-laid plans. Didn't manage to finish any books. Didn't start any new ones. But now that fall is actually here, I've realized I better get a move on if I'm going to finish up any of the reading challenges I signed up for this year. Especially RIP/VIII -- this is such a perfect time of year for reading mysteries, thrillers, ghost stories and dark fantasy. So here's what I'm thinking of for this week (well, one of them anyway):
The Asylum, by John Harwood. I'm actually already reading this one, but haven't gotten very far.
The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches, by Alan Bradley. I enjoyed the first Flavia de Luce novel, but haven't read any of the others in the series.
The Small Hand and Dolly, by Susan Hill. Since I'm a doll collector, I generally try to stay away from stories about spooky dolls. But I always enjoy Susan Hill, so....
I like my list. Now I just need to settle on one book (which would you choose?) and find some time to do a little actual reading!
