A Work in Progress

Adventures in (mostly) reading, and (sometimes) needlework and other artsy endeavors...

Reading Prompts and Other Bookishness


Not to wish the month away as I am hoping still to finish several more books yet, but already anticipating July and the long weekend that is coming soon, I have started thinking about July's reading prompt. Next month's theme...

A Likeness in Stone, Julia Wallis Martin


It's been a long time since I have come across a story that puts me in mind of the work of Ruth Rendell or Minette Walters. When it comes to mysteries, to compare an author to either woman is (in...

Teaser Tuesday: A Rising Man


You know how much I love a good book list, and in this case it is "lists". I had been so eager for the CWA Dagger Awards lists, yet I managed to miss the big reveal. But I have spotted...

The Dry by Jane Harper

The Dark Circle by Linda Grant


I wonder what the inspiration for Linda Grant's Baileys Prize shortlisted novel, The Dark Circle was. It is not the first book that comes to mind that uses the setting of a sanatorium for a story, but it is perhaps...

Last Month, This Month: My NYRBs


I'm having a so-so NYRB reading year. Not in the selections they are sending, which are always somewhere between really good and pretty amazing. My so-so is just in how well I am keeping up with reading them as they...

Their Finest Hour and a Half, Lissa Evans


So, I've read the book and seen the movie. Not quite in that order, but sort of. Lissa Evans's Their Finest Hour and a Half (published in the US as Their Finest ) was longlisted for the Orange Prize (back...
