I’m just about to start The Titanic Sisters by Patricia Falvey. It’s a book I received via Readers First to review.

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.

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 thriller.

I’ve also got Midwinter Mysteries on the go which is a collection of festive contemporary & historical short stories.

Started a library copy of The Evening Star by Faye Haskins (NF)
It's the story of the long-time DC newspaper that ceased publication in 1981.
