Re: What Are You Reading Nov. 2019?

I’ve just started The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir by Jennifer Ryan . It’s set in 1940 and reminding me a little of the Guernsey Potato Peel Pie Society in that it is told by way of letters and diary/journal entries. I’m also reading Snakes & Ladders by Victoria Selman via Pigeonhole. It’s a modern day th...

I'm reading an Agatha Christie "The Pale Horse", haven't read one of her books for years, very readable so far and there's a new TV version coming soon.
One of my favourite Agatha Christie’s. Looking forward to the new adaptation.

October

Here’s my list for October: The Angel Monument by Kath Middleton An enjoyable period drama set in 1824 concerning two sisters, their maid and a supposed gentleman who is not as he seems! This is a gentle and melancholic story with sinister overtones and a hint of the supernatural. It’s nicely writte...

Re: What Are You Reading Sept. 2019?

I’ve just finished Bone China by Laura Purcell on Pigeonhole. It’s a dark, atmospheric sort of horror story featuring fairies set in Cornwall during the 1800s. I enjoyed it. I’m reading The Dressmaker’s Gift by Fiona Valpy which is set in Paris during the 1940s. It’s a dual timeframe story and is ma...
