Tidying up

Posted: December 29, 2011 in notes

I am just tidying up a few loose ends before the end of the year.

You can read about Braquo my favourite discovery of the year at Euro Crime.  Series one ended with the sort of cliffhanger that makes scanning the schedules for series two an essential activity. 

Don’t forget you have only a few more days to get in your entries to the Winter Festival Quirky Quiz.

A couple of days ago I finished reading Ben Pastor’s Liar Moon, the second book in the Martin Bora series, and my review should appear on Euro Crime in due course.

I am now reading Charles McCarry’s 1974 classic The Tears of Autumn, a book I read about 30 years ago, but it seems as fresh today as it did then. I thought I might read fifty crime fiction novels this year, but I will fall short as the McCarry is only number 47. But five of those last six books that I have read are a very good reason for delaying the choice of best/favourite reads of the year until that very last day. 

Time to weigh up the reading year……
