August books

Good thing LJ has an auto-save feature. I seemed to have closed off all my browsers one day last week without posting this.

What happened to the heat? I've been cold the last few days. I ended up turning the furnace on yesterday instead of waiting 'til the middle of Oct. Not that it actually started since the thermostat read 70 degrees. lol Oh well, that's what flannel shirts and sweatshirts are for.
Thought I better post my books read from last month before I end up having to do 2 months at once again.

Claudia Bishop The Case of the Ill-Gotten Goat #3 in The McKenzie Casefiles. He's a veterinarian for large farm animals in rural New York. The main character drives me nuts so this is probably the last one in this series for me.
Donna Andrews Stork Raving Mad #12 in the Meg Langslow series. Love this series and this is the first mystery I ever remember reading where it all happened in one day! That doesn't mean it was a short book - 309 pages, to be exact!- but a very event-filled day it was!
Patricia Sprinkle Daughter of Deceit #3 in the Family Tree series. A genealogy mystery series, as you can probably tell!
Nevada Barr Burn #16 in the Anna Pigeon series.
Nancy Fairbanks Turkey Flambe #9 in the Carolyn Blue series.
Tim Myers At Wick's End, Snuffed Out, Death Waxed Over, A Flicker of Doubt #1-4 in a Candlemaking mystery series.
Monica Ferris Sins and Needles #10 in the Needlecraft series.

Jocelynn Drake Wait for Dusk #5 in the Dark Days novels
Rachel Caine Total Eclipse #9 and final book in the Weather Warden series. She does have another series set in this universe!
Maria V. Snyder Storm Glass, Sea Glass #1-2 in the Opal Cowen series. Set int he same universe as her Study books.

Science Fiction
Harry Harrison The Stainless Steel Rat Returns #11 in the Stainless Steel Rat series.

Jennifer Chiaverini A Quilter's Holiday #15 in the Elm Creek Quilts novels.

I almost forgot to tell you about a vanity license plate I spotted last week. There was a hearse with a plate that read: DIGM UP

Which was strange, because I thought it should say: BURY EM

haha Yeah, not often that they have to dig them back up...outside of mystery novels!

The last one I saw was on a PT Cruiser: SWT BSE

So the Elm Street Quilt novels are not mysteries? What kind of series is that? (I know, I should google.)

I'm reading that Swedish trilogy right now. I usually do not like books set in foreign countries, but it's not just set there -- it was written there, and the translation somehow gives it an even more gothic mystery novel feeling. The first one, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, was really good. I just started the second one.

Fiction? Chick-lit? I'm not sure how to describe it. I can't say I liked them all but I have enjoyed most of them. Sarah gave up her job to move to Pennsylvania when her husband gets a terrific landscaping job. Sarah is at loose ends and is hired by Matt's client to help clean out her family estate in return for quilting lessons. As Sylvia's history is told, Sarah comes up with an idea that will help the lonely retired school teacher. first book

I've heard several comments about how good that book is. Guess I should check it out from he Library, eh?

I had not heard all the hype until I had already ordered the book. I guess it's being turned into a movie? Whenever all that hype starts, the book never seems to be able to live up to it.

Now that you've talked about that fiction book series, I do recall it, maybe. I haven't read it, though. Thanks for the link!

I don't know anything about a movie but then, I don't get out much! :D
