Sunday Salon: A Few Good Books

It got cooler this morning after a few days of really hot and muggy weather. No more 90s heat for now!

I have reached more than the half-way point in the mystery novel in French, Mourir Sur Seine by Michel Bussi. Amazon has offered me another of the author's books, in French, Ne lache-pas ma main. They would send me the paper copy from Book Deposit. I am half-way tempted and may do that once I near the end of this book.

There are a few new books to share:
Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz, June 6, 2017, Harper.
The Bookshop at Water's End by Patti Callahan Henry, July 11, 2017, Berkley
The Lightkeeper's Daughter by Jean E. Pendziwo, July 4, 2017, HarperCollins.
The Longevity Plan by Dr. John Day and Jane Day, July 4, 2017, Harper.

This ebook buy is turning out to be quite a good read:
The Weight of Lies by Emily Carpenter, June 6, 2017, Lake Union Publishing. I'm hoping to read her 2016 book later on, Burying the Honeysuckle Girls

Happy Father's Day to all the dads!

  1. The Bookshop at Water's End is one of my NetGalley books...hope to start it soon.

    Thanks for sharing, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  2. These books all sound interesting and I like the idea of reading a novel in French. My current blog post shows 7 books I bought at a sale. I do adore reading.

  3. Nice mailbox! I've heard good things about Magpie Murders.

  4. All of your books are new to me but Anthony Horowitz's name is ringing a distant bell. I think I have one of his Sherlock Holmes books on TBR mountain. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  5. Are you enjoying Mourir Sur Seine? The Magpie Murders looks good too!

  6. I just added Magpie Murders to my TBR list. It looks really good!

  7. I'm really looking forward to The Bookshop at Waters End.

  8. Enjoy your books. Summer vacation has begun and so has the extreme heat. Come see what I'm reading.

  9. I didn't know you read French books. I'm fluent in French but don't read many books in that language. I read tons when I was in school.

  10. I wish I had time to read THE BOOKSHOP AT WATER'S EDGE. It looks so good.

    I am having a spotlight and giveaway for it next month.

    Have a great week.
