Thanks for the recommendation. I like Paige Shelton and haven't read that series. I'll check it out, although I shouldn't really add more books to the every-growing TBR pile until I make a dent in it.

My review of the first book, THIN ICE, can be read HERE!

Great review - I'm intrigued, but I'm nervous it might be a little too scary for me. It does sound like an interesting premise.

Sounds interesting, I will add it to my list to check out the first book to see if I like it.

I remember thinking the first book was very close to the series, which is not surprising since the author came up with the concept for the show and I think he wrote some of the scripts.

I'm currently working on a re-read of the Eva Gates mystery Reading Up A Storm. It's the third book in her Lighthouse Library series.

I don't typically get to do a lot of re-reading but I joined the mystery book club at my local library and this is the book of the month. I'm about 2/3 of the way through it and I still like it. I wasn't overly fond of the first two books in the series but this book is where I felt the main character FINALLY stopped being such a doormat.

I've got the fourth book in the series but haven't gotten around to reading that one yet.

I'm pretty sure READING UP A STORM is in my TBR pile. Right now, I'm thinking of warmer temperatures - I just started the fourth book in Robert Thorogood's Death in Paradise series. It's called MURDER IN THE CARIBBEAN - I love the TV series, and I've enjoyed all the books I've read in this series. (Which is all of them...)

I have not read Elly Griffiths before so I can't offer much in the way of an opinion.

I did just start reading THE CIPHER by Isabella Maldonado. It's the first book in a new series from the author.

As for Christmas list books, a friend of mine asked if there was a book I was looking to get so I told her Paige Shelton's COLD WIND. It's the 2nd book in her Alaska Wild series and it is due out December 1st. Beyond that, I really don't get many people getting me gifts anymore so I don't really have any kind of list.

True, it's really only my kids and husband who get gifts for me anymore. The aunts and uncles and grandparents who used to have all passed on. And my brothers and sisters and I don't exchange gifts anymore - we concentrate on the grandkids.

Thanks for the recommendation. I like Paige Shelton and haven't read that series. I'll check it out, although I shouldn't really add more books to the every-growing TBR pile until I make a dent in it.

I finished reading the new Michael Connelly book The Law Of Innocence. I haven't written my Goodreads review but I will say that I liked the book. However, there's a part of the plot tying it into the real world that kind of draws you out of the legal thriller aspect of the story.

I had read a couple Elly Griffiths books some time back, but I'd forgotten about her until Mystery Scene did a feature on her several months ago. Since then I've been rebuilding my collection of her books. I'm especially enjoying the "Magic Men" books. I just finished NOW YOU SEE THEM, which featured a lot of characters I remember from other books, plus a few new ones. The book is set in 1964, and I got a kick out of reading about Mods and Rockers, Top of the Pops (with the Beatles topping the charts), and other things I remember from my youth - even though in the Sixties I had never lived anywhere more exotic than Chicago and its suburbs.

I've got a few more books from this series in my waiting-to-be-read pile. I can only handle the chaos of the holidays if I also block out time for reading. Hoping to make a dent in the humongous TBR pile, but it's slow going so far.

What books are you reading? Do you have books on your Christmas list? (Or any kind of holiday wish list?)

That CHRISTMAS COCOA MURDER collection of novellas was really good. I have my copy signed by Maddie Day.

You must have quite a collection of autographed books! I am enjoying this book - perfect to read in front of the fire.
