12544 Who saw last nights premiere? Is it just me or are they trying to hide a pregnancy on Kate Beckett? She was wearing all loose tops and would do the folder/book trick for side shots...just curious if anyone else noticed. I hope they will let them eventually get together...ugh, we will probably have to wait a few more seasons!

12544 Well, I did a little more book shopping last night and I got the following:
Deadly Kisses
Murder on Marble Row
Murder on Lenox Hill
Innocent Fire
Footsteps in the Dark
The Unfinished Clue
A Woman of Independent Means
Dawn's Early Light
Skeletons at the Feast

I am sure I will do a little more book "retail therapy" this coming weekend or later this can never have too many. Of course, I have about 40 books that are still waiting to be read and are giving me the evil eye, each wanting to be the next one I choose to read!

12544 I finished Callander Square and then read Murder on Mulberry Bendand now I am currently reading Pardonable Lies. All of these books are parts of different series that I have been going back and forth between...they are all historical fiction mysteries. The current read is set in 1930 London and the main character is a female investigator/psychologist.

12544 I am currently reading Why Shoot a Butler?which is an oldie, but hopefully a goodie!
Sep 17, 2010 07:54AM

12544 I finished Deadly Affairswhich is part of a series of historical fiction mysteries set in 1902 NYC. As of this morning, I am reading A Letter of Maryby Laurie King, which is the third installment in the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series. I have been VERY hooked on series lately...I have been switching back and forth between 5 or 6 different series, of course they are all historical fiction mysteries, because those are my favorite!

12544 I feel the exact same way about Jamie and Claire...I feel very possessive of them. I also did not know a lot about the series until all 7 books were out, so I started reading Outlander and just plowed through the series, until An Echo in the Bone, which like I said earlier I was trying to save, but I was too weak :-)and I caved two weeks ago. It went by way too quickly.

I greatly agree that there were quite a lot of story lines left wide open at the end of the book. There were some story lines that were not even mentioned again at the end of the book and I was just like "WHAT?". I even held off reading An Echo in the Boneb/c I felt like I would save it for closer to the release of the next book, but I just could not wait and I went ahead and gobbled it up, just like the others. I guess we will all just have to wait and try to be patient!

12544 I just finished this book last week and I am sooooo bummed that I am going to have to wait maybe another year or two to find out what happens...UGH! I have truly loved every book in this series, even during the more dull moments, I knew something was right around the corner waiting to happen. I certainly hope that the next book (book 8) answers all of the questions that were brought up in this book, but if not, maybe there will be a book 9!

12544 I am almost finished with The Glassblower of Murano and then I have quite a few to choose from. I will probably go with Deadly Affairsby Brenda Joycewhich is the third in the Franchesca Cahill series. It is a good historical fiction murder/mystery series that is set in NYC in 1902.

12544 Welcome to the group Sissy! I am also an avid reader and b/c of that an avid book collector, but I am running out of room...UGH! I have them in stacks waiting "to be read" and then they will get shelved, but I am almost out of space on the shelves, so what to do, what to do? Oh well, I will figure it out, just wanted to say welcome to the group and that I feel your pain, of course books is only one of the many things I do collect, so that could be part of the running out of room problem, maybe I need to stop collecting....NOOOOOOO WAY! Anwyays, to read for the night!

12544 Welcome Bridget and Shellie! I LOVE this group, but it is definitely an enabler to your book addiction and just a warning...your TBR list will grow and grow and grow! I joined Goodreads and this group at the beginning of April and I have enjoyed every minute of being a part of a group and the usefulness (word?)of this website in general. It is nice to have my progress tracked for me...I am close to 80 books already for 2010, my goal is 112, but I would love to hit 120, we'll see! Anyways, just wanted to say welcome to both of you and that I really think that you will enjoy this group for the book discussions and the chit chatting! Best Reading!

12544 Hi Joyce. Long time, no talk. I sent you an email today! I did pick up The Thirteenth Tale and after all of the books I bought, it might take me a little while to get to it, but I will let you know what I think the minute I start it. Right now, I am HOOKED on the Outlander series and I am pretty focused on that for right now. If you have not read it, I strongly suggest you give the series a try...good reads, especially if you like Historical Fiction, like I do.

I am forcing myself to read non-Outlander books as well btw. Outlander books, so that the series will last longer! I have heard from quite a few people in the past couple of days that Voyager (the one I am reading right now)was their favorite and that The Fiery Cross was their least favorite, so I will be anxious to hear what you have to say. Let me know what you think so far about The Fiery Cross. I am so glad that you are enjoying the series as much as I am...Yeah Outlander! I am totally HOOKED!
