It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

OK, it's Monday! But also — it's APRIL!!!! This year is movin' along much too fast, and my reading is going much too slow. Yeah — what else is new, right?

So this week I'm trying to get myself back into the reading groove, and I'm doing it with something I'm almost certain to love — one of Rex Stout's classic Nero Wolfe mysteries from the 1950s:

I've read quite a few of the Nero Wolfe series, but this is one I've missed up to now. I'm only a few pages in, but enjoying it so far.

If I manage to finish that one quickly, I've got several books I need to read and review this month. Three likely candidates:

Little Darlings, the debut novel by Melanie Golding
The Invited, a suspense novel by Jennifer McMahon
We Were Killers Once, the latest Brigid Quinn mystery, by Becky Masterman

Hmmm. Just noticed how those covers for The Invited and We Were Killers Once sort of echo each other. Odd. Well, anyway....

Certainly enough to keep me busy. Now if I can just keep all that pesky real-life stuff from sneaking up on my reading, I'll be fine.

Happy reading, everyone! And have a lovely week.

  4. Nero Wolfe was one of Momma's favs. Caroline and I have a "book club" which means I am reading the books she recommends - oh the variety -- so right now I am reading "Pugs of the Frozen North" and "Temple Secrets".

    1. Yes, I remember your mom and mine and MaMa and Aunt Linnie used to get Nero Wolfe books from the library and pass them around. That's how I was first introduced to the series.

      "Pugs of the Frozen North" is a wonderful title! I might take a look at it too.

  5. I pre-ordered Little Darlings...can't wait!

    Love the graphics at the top of your post. Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  6. I love reading mysteries and will look for these books in my local library. Right now I am reading "Before We Were Yours" by Lisa Wingate. zIt is historical fiction, Very well written and based on a shocking true story.

  7. I read quite a few Nero Wolfe novels from my parents' bookshelves, and read one recently and enjoyed it now too.
