Wickeds, what books are you reading and looking forward to reading?
Sherry: I’ve had more time to read lately. I recently finished Killers of A Certain Age by Deanna Raybourn and London Rules by Mick Herron. I’m looking forward to reading No Home for Killers by E. A. Aymar, Hide by Tracy Clark and Time’s Undoing by Cheryl A. Head!
Edith/Maddie: I finished Paula Munier’s The Wedding Plot (highly recommend), GT Herren’s delightful A Streetcar Named Murder, and Blind Faith by Alicia Beckman, aka Leslie Budewitz, which is brilliantly told. Now I’m absorbed in Bombay Monsoon by James Ziskin and have Louise Penny’s latest cued up. By then Sherry’s Rum and Choke will be out!
Barb: I just finished Val McDermid’s 1989, an Allie Burns mystery and sequel to the book 1979. It was interesting to revisit the end of the 80s, when Lockerbie, AIDs, and the disintegration of the Soviet Empire occupied our concerns. I didn’t love the book, though, which is weird for me because I normally love McDermid’s novels. Next up, a pair of books I’m reading for possible blurbs. The first is Church Street Under, sequel to the excellent The Drinking Gourd, by Katherine Fast, published by Level Best. Then Final Cut, about an amateur sleuth who is a Hollywood costume designer, by Marjorie McCown, who was an actual Hollywood costume designer, coming from Crooked Lane in June.
Julie: Sherry, I loved Killers of a Certain Age. Hide by Tracy Clark is on my TBR pile, along with Exit Interview by Dana Cameron, The Appeal by Janice Hallett, Moonflower Murders by Anthony Horowitz and Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson.
Liz: I just finished Nine Lives by Peter Swanson, Julie – so good! And just started Eight Perfect Murders too! I also loved The Man Who Died Twice by Richard Osman. Next up is Cultish: The Language of Fanaticism by Amanda Montell, and Lock Every Door by Riley Sager.
Jessie: I always love to know what you all are reading! Right now, as holiday prep, I am reading That Cheese Plate with Change Your Life by Marissa Mullen. I am also reading The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. Up next is Hot Protestants- A History of Puritanism in England and America by Michael P. Winship and The Lost Man of Bombay by Vaseem Khan.
