Here’s some new books I picked up yesterday while I was out and about. We were supposed to be shopping for kitchen utensils and clothes, but I came home with books, hot chocolate and spicy tea. Much more like it.
A couple more Sherlock Holmes books here, of course – another June Thomson and a Laurie King that I didn’t have.
I’ve always wanted to try the Maisie Dobbs books by Jacqueline Winspear. This is my first, and I picked it up on a whim.
Cambridge Blue is the first in a series of crime novels set in and around Cambridge, and I’ve been intrigued by them for a while. I finally relented and bought it. I’m looking forward to this. I like to dip my toe into British contemporary crime novels every now and then. One day I’ll write a crime series set in and around Durham, I think.
Angelglass is the other missing David Barnett, which arrived in the post on Saturday afternoon.
I’m enjoying the first Daisy Dalrymple I pointed out the other day, and I’ve finished the James Blaylock I discovered in Edinburgh. Not sure what to tackle next. There’s too much choice!
