SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

August Roundup

84, Charing Cross Road - Helene Hanff The Riddle of the Labyrinth: The Quest to Crack an Ancient Code - Margalit Fox The Brutal Telling - Louise Penny Garment of Shadows - Laurie R. King Blood of Tyrants - Naomi Novik Bath Tangle - Georgette Heyer Search The Dark - Charles Todd

Best reads this month: an old reliable (84, Charing Cross Road) and a non-fiction, The Riddle of the Labyrinth.


No worst read: nothing was under a three.


I read four books in series I follow, by Louise Penny, Laurie R. King, Naomi Novik, and Charles Todd - two historical mysteries, a modern-day mystery, and one 'Napoleonic Wars with dragons' alternate history.  (Yeah, I like mysteries.)  Also a Georgette Heyer.
