It’s been quite a whirlwind around the MsBookish household – we seem to have plunged right into spring cleaning/home renovations fever, and if that sounds chaotic … it is!
But I’m still reading. I think it’s the only way to stay sane during a renovation. The main problem is that I don’t have much time for reviewing. I’m toying with posting mini-reviews – maybe call them “In A Nutshell” or something like that, to distinguish them from my regular full-length reviews.
I’ve been having a good time, though, renovations and all. Here’s a list of the books I’ve finished the last four weeks (I may be missing some that have gone back to the library – I forgot to keep a “master list”):
The Victoria Vanishes, by Christopher Fowler
Ten Second Staircase, by Christopher Fowler
Jinx, by Meg Cabot
Missing You (1-800-Where-R-You, Book 5), by Meg Cabot
Bones, by Jonathan Kellerman
Pictures of Perfection, by Reginald Hill
Ruling Passion, by Reginald Hill
A Pinch of Snuff, by Reginald Hill
The Third Degree, by Norah McClintock
Over the Edge, by Norah McClintock
Double Cross, by Norah McClintock
The Case of the Left-handed Lady, by Nancy Springer
The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets, by Nancy Springer
As you can probably see, there’s a definite mystery “theme” going on in my life right now. I’m pretty sure I’m missing some titles as well, but I’ll update the list if/when the missing titles come back to me.
In the course of renovating, and moving furniture around, I’ve also been going through my bookshelves. It’s so difficult, weeding my book collection, but it must be done – we simply don’t have enough space for all my books. I must admit, my heart cries a little with each box of books that leaves this house, headed toward charity book sales! But on the bright side, I’ve been finding a ton of books that I either (1) haven’t read yet or (2) want very much to re-read.
So yes, I’m still reading …!
