Weekly Roundup

Posted July 25, 2020 by Nicky in General / 28 Comments

Greetings, folks. I wasn’t as organised this week, but I’m still getting this posted on Saturday instead of Sunday! It’s good enough for me. It’s been a quiet week as I haven’t been feeling 100% well.

Linking up with The Sunday Post @ The Caffeinated Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves @ Reading Reality & Tynga’s Reviews.

Books bought this week:

Cover of Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia Cover of Alike As Two Bees by Elin Gregory Cover of The Deep by Rivers Solomon Cover of Felix Ever After by Kacen Callender

Cover of Murder in Vienna by E.C.R. Lorac Cover of Murderer's Mistake by E.C.R. Lorac Cover of Death Came Softly by E.C.R. Lorac Cover of Accident by Design, by E.C.R. Lorac

Cover of Rope's End, Rogue's End by E.C.R. Lorac Cover of A Lady's Guide to Etiquette and Murder by Dianne Freeman Cover of Return of the Earl by Sandra Schwab Cover of Two Rogues Make a Right by Cat Sebastian

As you can see, I discovered a bunch of E.C.R. Lorac books that haven’t been reissued in the British Library Crime Classics series… are available in ebook for a couple of quid each. Yoink!

Books read this week:

Cover of Like a Gentleman by Eliot Grayson Cover of The Man Who Didn't Fly by Margot Bennett

  • Hobbit Birthday. For my birthday, I’m giving away £50 to spend on books (preferably at Portal Bookshop, but I can be flexible if they can’t ship to you) to one person, and one book under £15 to two people! You can get entries (apart from a freebie and one for following my blog) by doing some little self-care/fun/charity stuff.

That’s it for this week? How’re you folks doing?

    • Me too! I’ve been eager to read them for a while, so hopefully I’ll be able to dig in soon… though I know what my reading moods are like!

  1. Death came softly sounds like an Agatha Christie title. Wow, you had quite the haul here! Mexican Gothic is doing the rounds on the blogosphere.

    Hope you feel better and that you will have a good week!

    • They were contemporaries, if I remember rightly! Same era of crime fiction. 🙂 And yeah, I’m super excited about Mexican Gothic. Thanks for dropping by!

  2. I hope you feel better soon. I haven’t been 100% this week, either; a persistent skin rash that appears, disappears, and then comes back again! Now I’m on antibiotics. I hope those work.

    Enjoy those lovely books, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    • Oh no! I hope you’re doing better soon. It’s been a heck of a week, since my wife got sick next (different illness). Thanks for dropping by!

    • Definitely! Maybe they’ll be reissued and I can grab ’em then, but they’re always solid mysteries. Thanks for dropping by!

  3. Isn’t it fun when you stumble across copies (even ebooks) of a favorite author’s books that you have never read? I came across a motherlode of Elizabeth Goudge books in a used bookstore about 30 years ago, and bought about 10 of them. (Alas, a leaky pipe in destroyed more than half of them, about 15 years ago. I’m slowly replacing them.)

    I get really worried these days when anyone says they aren’t feeling well. I wish you much better health this week, and happy reading!

    • Yess, it’s a great feeling. 😀 Especially when they’re out of print.

      I’ve been alright, but then my wife got sick… but our COVID tests are negative, whew! 🙂 Thanks for dropping by.

  4. I see Mexican Gothic around all the time amd I still don’t really know what it’s about. I’ll have to investigate.

    Hope you enjoy! Thanks for visiting Shell’s Stories.

  5. Sorry to hear you weren’t feeling well, hope you feel better. Mexican Gothic looks interesting and I like the title: Two Rogues Make a Right! Hope they’re both wins for you!

    • E.C.R. Lorac wrote really clever Golden Age mysteries, I do recommend. 😀 And Mexican Gothic is really calling to me, I neeeed to start on it.
