November 2018 books

The Death of Mrs Westaway Ruth Ware 11.29

This was on the NPR Book Concierge and it sounded like the kind of mystery I’d like. It was! I’m always a sucker for the “assuming someone’s identity” trope, and Ware plays nicely with that here. I also liked Harriet a lot. It feels very old-fashioned on several levels, I think intentionally, and I’m still trying to figure out how I feel about that aspect.

  1. I liked the weekly round-ups, but I can always just pester you about what you’re reading, too. 😉

  2. So many interesting books in there! The Witch Boy and Making Friend looks so cute!

    I really liked The Witch Boy – I need to check out the sequel.

  4. I don’t know what went wrong with me and Pride! I read Ibi Zoboi’s first book and quite liked it, but Pride somehow didn’t work for me. (Sob.)
