It’s Monday! What are you Reading?

This is my first week participating in It’s Monday! What are you Reading?, hosted by Book Journey.

I am currently reading the following books:

Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead by Sara Gran Spackled and Spooked by Jennie Bentley Thereby Hangs a Tail by Spencer Quinn

  1. Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead by Sara Gran. This is an e-galley from the publisher, received via NetGalley. Claire DeWitt is a bit different than your average private investigator found in mystery novels. The concept is fresh, and I look forward to finding out how everything ties together.
  2. Spackled and Spooked by Jennie Bentley. I picked this up at the library a week or so ago. My nook needed to charge, so I took a break from Claire DeWitt and started this no-brainer, second book in the DIY mystery series. It is a nice, quick read and was handy for reading at the lake. Yes, I got brave and went swimming in a power plant cooling lake!
  3. Thereby Hangs a Tail by Spencer Quinn. This is the second book in the Chet and Bernie series, which is a favorite of mine. Dog as narrator! Chet reminds me of my goofy dog, Sherman, right down to the mismatched ears. I am listening to the audiobook, as I did with the first in the series.

Speaking of dogs, I would like to introduce you to the pack! I made a quickie page for them today. I hope to add the details surrounding their adoptions at a later date. Of course, the pack includes myself and the mister. We are going to start a new dog training class later this week. We might have some stories.

Last week I finished reading and reviewed:

Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters

  1. The Janus Stone by Elly Griffiths – My Review
  2. Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters – My Review

I also joined the Goodreads Book Club Challenge and plan to read A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan. I am excited about this since I don’t belong to any in-person book clubs, and this book has received a lot of hype!

  1. The GR bookclub challenge sounds fun! I have a few books that I’m reading right now too. I can’t decide which one to read! The Sara Gran book looks interesting. Looking forward to your review!

  2. I love Chet & Bernie too. I just finished reading To Fetch a Thief, the third in the series. It’s going to run out soon, so I hope Quinn is writing fast!

    P.S. What’s Chet’s voice like on the audio version?

    • Oh, Debbie, the Chet and Bernie audiobooks are wonderful! The narrator is Jim Frangione, and he does Chet perfectly. I am currently reading the ARC of The Dog Who Knew Too Much, and it’s the first time I have not listened to one of the books. I can still totally hear Chet’s voice in my head.
