Sunday Salon: Summer's Over

Welcome to the Sunday Salon where bloggers share their reading each week. Visit The Sunday Post hosted by The Caffeinated Bookreviewer. 

Seems summer is over, at least till it warms up again next week. I am wearing sweats and sleeping under a blanket till then.

Finished reading:
The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz, fourth in the Stieg Larssen thriller series. This one is controversial because of the new writer, but I gave it five stars.

A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn, the first in a new Victorian era mystery series.

The Spy Who Jumped Off the Screen by Thomas Caplan, a political thriller.

Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger, a beautiful book crafted as a mystery novel. A five star read.

Won in a Library Thing giveaway:

A Cup of Water Under My Bed by Daisy Hernandez, published September 9th 2014 by Beacon Press.  In this coming-of-age memoir, Daisy Hernández chronicles what the women in her Cuban-Colombian family taught her about love, money, and race.

I love the Murder She Wrote series...and now I get to watch reruns on my Hallmark channel, new to my service provider.

Enjoy your books...and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

Harvee, you have many enticing books here. I hope each is an enjoyable read. We are still in the midst of hot, summery weather here (Southern CA tends to have long summers).

I loved to watch the Murder She Wrote TV Show. Another book coming up - I will have to add to my Goodreads

Katherine P said...

Pretty much all your books are tempting me! I love Murder She Wrote in TV show format and have been meaning to read some of the books. I haven't read Laura Childs or Carolyn Hart in far too long and I'm looking forward to catching up! Have a great week!

A Cup of Water Under My Bed looks really good to me.

Our nights have cooled off but our days are still plenty warm.

I really enjoyed Ordinary Grace. Sounds like we've had the same weather. We'll be back in the 70s this week.

Brian Joseph said...

Usually I welcome new seasons. This year I am a little sad that summer is over.

My wife bought The Girl in the Spider Web. I am curious to how different it is from the original series.

Vicki said...

I have Ordinary Grace but haven't started it yet. I hope you have a great week of reading.

Ghost To The Rescue and Parchment and Old Lace look good.


I read Ordinary Grace and really enjoyed it.

I hope you are having a wonderful week.
