Halloween Bingo 2019: Fourth Extra Square – Genre: Mystery

I haven’t finished Sara Collins’s The Confessions of Frannie Langton yet, but this came in the mail just recently, and I’ve been curious about it ever since I listened to the full cast adaptation of one of these stories as part of the BBC’s The Lady Detectives compilation, which was my audiobook for the “Read by Flashlight or Candle Light” square.  And so far, it’s a pleasure to meet Miss Loveday Brooke … (whose appearance is actually the polar opposite to what is suggested on the book cover).  Tigus, I think you might enjoy this one!

Zora Neale Hurston: Dust Tracks on a Road

Definitely the best book I read during the first week of the new year; the New Yorker pretty much nailed it when calling the book “warm, witty, imaginative” and adding “This is a rich and winning book.” I’d (finally) read Hurston’s Their Eyes Were Watching God last year; having now read her autobiography, I recongnize […]
