The April Buddy Reads

Reblogged from: Moonlight Reader

All right, everyone, open thread for April buddy reads/readalongs/etc.
What I know so far:

April 1:

Mort - Terry Pratchett

Discworld is reading the 4th Discworld book, Mort, which is also the first in the “Death” subseries. The buddy read starts on April 1, and continues through the end of April, so you can jump in any time!

 

April 1:

The Floating Admiral - G.K. Chesterton,G.D.H. Cole,Dorothy L. Sayers,Ronald Knox,Edgar Jepson,Freeman Wills Crofts,Victor L. Whitechurch,Detection Club,Anthony Berkeley,John Rhode,Clemence Dane,Henry Wade,Margaret Cole,Milward Kennedy,Agatha Christie,Helen Simpson 

BrokenTune, Lillelara and I are planning a buddy read of this collaborative novel by various authors of The Detection Club.

 

April 19:

The Agathytes are reading Crooked House

 

Other possibilities:

Chris’ Fish Place, Tigus & I are discussing a Maigret-along, although we haven’t identified a book or a date.

Themis & I are going to continue with reading Agatha’s plays, planning on Murder on the Nile, although I don’t recall if we set a date. Sometime in April is my recollection – Themis, did we actually pick a date?

There’s also been a lot of talk about the RITAs and how authors of color aren’t nominated/don’t win in a way that suggests a hostility of romancelandia towards those authors. I have been interested in reading something by Beverly Jenkins for a while, and would love to buddy read with other readers. When I asked Ms. Bev which of her books she would recommend a new reader, she suggested Indigo, so I’d love to start with that one!

If you are hosting a buddy read that you want me to add to the post, put it in the comments. If you are interested in getting one going, put it in the comments and we’ll see what develops!

Halloween Bingo 2021: Card, Spells, Markers and Book Pool

Phew!  I’ve had blog display issues for the better part of August due to a stupid WP plugin acting up (and of course, it was a plugin allegedly intended to “facilitate” the import of content into my chosen theme — haha, right), but luckily they were resolved just in time for Halloween Bingo! (Gosh … […]

June 2021 and Mid-Year Reading Recap

Sigh.  Well, I think posting a monthly (and even half-year) reading recap a full three weeks into the next month has to be some sort of record, even for me, but here we are.  And I admit that at this point I’d even been contemplating holding off another week so as to combine this with […]

Dorothy L. Sayers: The Five Red Herrings

Dorothy L. Sayers is occasionally accused of having gotten too caught up in her research for a given book; and the two mysteries that routinely come up in this context are The Nine Tailors (bell ringing, published in 1934) and, well, The Five Red Herrings (1931), which, although chiefly concerned with fishing and painting, also […]
