Sunday Salon: Halloween Reading/A Poem

 The Sunday Salon.com

Click on the Sunday Salon logo to join in!

A very long list of Halloween Mysteries and cozies has been put together by Janet Rudolph in her Mystery Readers website. Check it out for some spooky and not-so-spooky Halloween reading!

 It includes titles such as The Cat Who Talked to Ghosts (The Cat Who...) by Lillian Jackson Braun, Nightmare in Shining Armor by Tamar Myers, and Witches' Bane by Susan Wittig Albert.

My 5-star reads: The Poisonwood Bible: A Novel (P.S.) by Barbara Kingsolver and Intuition by Allegra Goodman. I recommend both books highly. Excellent writing, plot, and character development. Both books I own.

My 4-star reads: Death of a Valentine (Hamish Macbeth Mysteries) by M.C. Beaton and Fatally Flaky (Culinary Mysteries)by Diane Mott Davidson, the 15th in the series. Fun cozy novels from the library.

Other than that I've been writing short verses for several poetry blogs which offer weekly word or picture prompts. This is the most fun, as there is lots of feedback from the community of poet bloggers. And almost all give positive and supporting comments!

Spurred words, unspurned,
A comfort for poets gives
The urge to say more.

I love "The Cat Who .." series, as well as the Culinary Mysteries by Diane Mott Davidson. To get into the Halloween spirit, I've just finished reading "Fiber & Brimstone" by Laura Childs and just started reading "Blackwork" by Monica Ferris.

I read a ton of the Cat Who series years back. I haven't picked one up in ages. Thanks for the reminder!

I just finished Immortal: Beloved - very enjoyable

I've read a couple of Diane Mott Davidson's books...this one sounds delicious (couldn't resist!).

They're always fun and delightful.

I'll have to try The Cat Who books sometime.

Thanks for sharing.
