On Tuesday, while I was wiling away the time between the end of my class and starting work I finished Code Noir by Marianne De Pierres (review to follow after I’ve finished the one for The Night Circus), and even before I was done I knew what my next free pick would be: Raisins and Almonds by Kerry Greenwood.
Raisins and Almonds is the 9th book in the Phryne Fisher Mysteries (out of 18 so far) and I was excited to read it for a couple of reasons:
- Its been a while since I’ve read a Phryne book (I read the 8th book, Urn Burial February last year so its been a year! O.O) so I’ve been missing her detective antics and fabulous outfits 🙂 and;
- I’ve been in a Phryne mood because the premiere of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries (which I talked about in my Top 10 Books I Would Like To See Adapted For The Screen post) has been approaching, and is tonight at 8.30 (eeeee! :D)!!
Even though I chose the book Tuesday night I haven’t started it yet, being so caught up in the other books I’m reading, so I’m looking forward to starting it tonight after the premiere, and then it will most likely accompany me on the bus next week 🙂
The end of February is fast approaching so this will probably be my last Free Pick February book as I am not near the end of any of my current reads, and I will revert back to my usual eeny meeny miny moe process of elimination for March.
Also I will be closing my latest poll early next week so I can begin work on the Top 10 lists, and with one theme currently on 2 votes and the other on nil, it looks like the chosen theme will be Top 10 Heroes and Top 10 Villains.
Hope you all have a relaxing weekend and Happy Reading!
