Books, books,books

The bookcase is overflowing and my bedside table is ready to topple over. As my friend Melodie Campbell says, "Books are great for decorating". Hmm, I think I am beyond that. I need to purge but I can't let go of books.

Today as I gave my office it's yearly cleaning and tidy up ( I'm not quite finished yet) because I sat down and started making a list of books I had bought and read last year.

These are in no particular order and some I bought a while ago but didn't get around to reading. They are books I thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend . They all get five stars. *****

  • None so Blind--------------------Barbara Fradkin-----------------An Inspector Green Mystery.
  • Miss Montreal-------------------Howard Shrier------------------ -PI Jonah Geller
  • Beach Strip-----------------------John Lawrence Reynolds / Winner of CBC Bookie Award
  • Deadly Slipper-------------------Michelle Wan------------- - Novel of Death in the Dordogne
  • White Fire-------------------------Preston & Child------------      A.X.L Pendergast thriller
  • The Corpse with the Emerald Thumb--Cathy Ace--------------------A Cait Morgan Mystery
  • Under Cold Stone---------------Vicki Delaney-------------------  -Constable Molly Smith novel
  • The Artful Goddaughter--------------Melodie Campbell-----------A Gino Gallo Mystery
  • The Painted Girls----------------Cathy Marie Buchanan ----------Historical/Degas
  • The Long Way Home------------Louise Penny-------------A Chief Inspector Gamache novel
  • A Brush with Death--------------Elizabeth Duncan--------A Penny Brannigan Mystery
  • Corpse Flower---------------------Gloria Ferris-------------A Cornwall and Redfern Mystery

Most of these books are written by members of Crime Writers of Canada. They rock. I read many more but have not finished purging. Probably won't get rid of any. I think I lent a few to Liz but have forgotten what they are. Next month I'll catch up.

I've been absent on the blog for a while but the manuscript Liz and I have just finished took presedence. This months interview with an author will be posted on Jan 26th so check back for a tete-tete with Eva Gates. It's someone you all know. Curious??? Well we'll see you on the 26th.

Now back to the writing of Jamie Tremain's fourth book.

Keep warm and safe wherever you are.

Wow. I've read some of these already and they are truly great reads. The rest I will read ASAP. Oh, and I'm humbled and honoured that Corpse Flower is on the list!
