Wonderful Wordy Wednesday

It has been nice, several days in a row with no rain and some decent temperatures. Summer sunshine too. 

I have at least one baby robin, I think there is more based upon the noise that was coming in my bedroom window this AM during feeding time. A different sort of alarm clock. Although very early! I rolled over and went back to sleep. 

My two library friends and I are discussing a road trip of sorts. The local library system is having a contest this summer for visiting every library, all 24 of them. You have to go there, find the key word for that library and then get your map stamped. You get entries for every 6 libraries you visit, so potentially four entries. They also do provide a map with suggested routes for six libraries at a time which could be done on one day. Stay tuned.

Death Knells and Wedding Bells Lucy and Connor's wedding day has arrived. Slight glitch, a dead body, one of the wedding guests is found dead after the reception. Who done it and why?

Shutter - Rita is a forensic photographer with the Albuquerque PD. Native American she has the ability to see the ghosts of crime victims. One of her victims insists she was murdered versus suicide like the cops say and bugs Rita into investigating things, which may not have a happy ending for Rita.

Central Park West the murder of the former governor, was it his soon to be ex-wife or a hit job by the mob? Conspiracy, corruption? Yes, the author is the former FBI Director. Entertaining book, but not likely to read more if he writes more.

The Senator's Wife medical mystery, thriller and psychological suspense. Is the senator's wife ill from her auto-immune disease, suffering from post surgical complications or something else. Good one, I couldn't put it down. 

Pathogenesis, the sub-title is A History of the World in Eight Plagues. I thought the author would discuss various plagues over the years. Not really, more of the history of man and how it has been influenced by various germs over the years.

Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough is a comprehensive biography of the title character. She was the wife of John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough and a direct ancestor of both Winston Churchill and Lady Diana Spencer (the late Princess of Wales). A recent movie The Favourite is based partly on her life and relationship with Queen Anne. 


Happy Reading!

  4. A library road trip! I'd love it if they'd do that here. Then I'd have to finagle days off work.

    Love the memes, all of them.

  6. My dad says he's seen lots and lots of broken blue eggshell pieces all over the place these past weeks. Oh, and he says he might try to pick up "Shutter" and "The Senator's Wife" as they both sound like great reads to him.
