Monday What Are You Reading #65

It’s Monday What Are You Reading? is a weekly reading roundup is hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date.

This is technically a weekly meme but I don’t read fast enough to make that worthwhile so I post it every two or three weeks.

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle

I’m kind of surprised I missed this one as a kid. It’s totally the kind of book I loved and still do. I’m so glad I finally read it and I’m looking forward to the upcoming movie.

I’m finally getting back to Sherlock Holmes and this illustrated edition is just gorgeous.

The Painted Queen by Elizabeth Peters and Joan Hess narrated by Barbara Rosenblat

The Painted Queen by Elizabeth Peters and Joan Hess narrated by Barbara Rosenblat

I have listened to and loved the entire Amelia Peabody series. Barbara Rosenblat doesn’t simply narrate these. She performs them as tha author said in an interview included with one of the audiobooks. I was sad when Barbara Merta (Elizabeth Peters) died. She left an unfinished book that Joan Hess has finished and Barbara Rosenblat narrated. It’s clearly not as polished as the author’s other books but I couldn’t pass up one last chance to spend some time with Amelia, Emerson and their children and friends.
