Sunday Salon: All Mystery

Welcome to the Sunday Salon where bloggers share their reading each week.Visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer; Also visit It's Monday: What Are You Reading hosted by Book Journey and Stacking the Shelves at Tynga's Reviews.

Fall is here and am out of the house again after nursing a nasty cold for a couple of weeks. Found a new dim sum place yesterday and ate too much. The nice thing about dim sum is that you can have as much or as little as you like as each little dish has only about three bites or small portions - Asian style tapas, but going back hundreds of years.

I have found some good books at the library recently, finished
Stillwater, an historical novel of Minnesota in the 19th century and 
Death of an Englishman by M.C. Beaton. I am now reading Jussi-Adler Olsen's newest Scandinavian thriller, The Marco Effect.

After reading and loving Us: A Novel by David Nicholls, I borrowed the ebook of his previous novel, One Day. I was not as taken with this one, however, and finished it quickly, something you can do with an ebook.

New books on my TBR shelf are:

For the Dead
French Pastry Murder
Stirring the Plot

Literally Murder
Picked to Die
Click on the blue titles under each book cover for book descriptions. 

What's new in your reading?


  1. I love Leslie Meier. I've been visiting the library again too. Fun.

  2. You have some delicious looking cozies to share! Enjoy...and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  3. Looks like a wonderful stack of mystery cozies with enticing covers! Have fun with them, and glad you are now feeling better!

  4. I have Us next on my to-read list, and I'm really, really excited about it. I LOVED One Day, and hearing that you like it even better than that, well... I'm really hopeful I'll feel the same. Happy reading!!

  5. I'm pleased to hear that you are feeling better. I haven't had dim sum in ages, that is something we used to do on a Sunday when we lived in London. Have a good week :)

  6. I'll never get over the humor you see in the titles of murder mysteries these days! Intriguing.

    Here's my Sunday Salon!

  7. Looks like some good cozies, especially Literally Murder. The new MC Beaton books looks pretty good, too.

  8. Great books! I enjoyed the latest MC Beaton and I always enjoy Sheila Connolly's books. Definitely want to try Stirring the Plot, Stillwater and Moriarty. I can't think of the last time I had dim sum. The place here at was good closed and hasn't been replaced. Have a great week!

  9. I love dimsum! Your books are awesome! Hope you're enjoying them!

    Here's mine!

  10. I am glad that you are feeling better.

    I love Dim Sum. It is so good.

    I am going to recommend to my wife the A Black Cat Bookshop Mystery bookshop series. I think that she will love it.

  11. What a great collection of mysteries...perfect for fall reading.

  12. Like the mysteries and especially love the covers.

  13. I have those mysteries waiting in my TBR too. They look so good. Have a great week!

  14. So much awesomeness here! Happy reading and I hope you’ll enjoy them all! :)

    My STS:

  15. I need to get Moriarty for my mom - I bet she'd love it.

  16. I'm glad to hear you loved Us- I'll be reading that one soon. And dim sum...yum! Have a great week :)

  17. I'm reading the Genevieve Lenard series by Estelle Ryan. Genevieve describes herself as non-neurotypical. She is on the high-functioning scale of the autism spectrum and is an expert at reading body language. Her life expands and explodes when she's involved in finding art thieves. Quite a unique protagonist and Ms. Ryan does a great job at getting the reader into the mindset of someone dealing with autism.

  18. I just got a Sheila Connolly book, but it's not the same one you have. I haven't read her before, but it sounds good.
    I hope you enjoy all your reads :)

  19. Looks like a nice group of mysteries in your future. I have a few coming up on my review stack too. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  20. Ah, Sherlock Holmes! I love those books

  21. All four of my girls have been battling colds with the recent change of weather! LOL

  22. Your new cozies do look especially good! French Pastry Murder caught my eye.

  23. Nice, nice mailbox. Love the cozies.

    I really need to read a few. I haven't read any cozies for a long time.

    ENJOY your reading week.
