Morning Meanderings… Signs of Spring


I love the early days of winters end. It’s not quite spring, yet you can smell that it is coming. The air is crisp yet inviting. There are moments when the sun hits you just right and you know…

spring is on the way.

It’s been a crazy week of Beta Testing recipes, heavy work loads, friend time, dog walking and book discussing. There were a couple of nights I did not head home until 7ish. Full days but not complaining – the opposite I know all too well does not work for me.

The above pic are the books that found a new home with me this week.

Cemetery Road by Greg Isles was gifted to me by a friend.

Goodbye Lark Lovejoy was a Goodreads win.

And…. The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton is one I stumbled on while browsing and could not let go of the synopsis:

Aiden Bishop knows the rules. Evelyn Hardcastle will die every day until he can identify her killer and break the cycle. But every time the day begins again, Aiden wakes up in the body of a different guest at Blackheath Manor. And some of his hosts are more helpful than others. With a locked room mystery that Agatha Christie would envy, Stuart Turton unfurls a breakneck novel of intrigue and suspense.

For fans of Claire North, and Kate Atkinson, The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is a breathlessly addictive mystery that follows one man’s race against time to find a killer, with an astonishing time-turning twist that means nothing and no one are quite what they seem.

And…
there is a map.


And…
it is being picked up by Netflix.

So… I’m totally excited about this one.

Anything new books grace your doorstep/night stand/ mailbox/coffee table/shelves this week?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Happy weekend!

  1. These all look good, and The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is now on my list! Thanks for sharing.

    I just finished reading a book I loved: Sally Hepworth’s The Good Sister.

  2. I actually own 7 1/2 Deaths, but I have tried to get into it, and I’ve been very disappointed….maybe this summer?

  3. I told myself that this is the year to work through my TBR shelf and not buy books. Well, that’s just not going well. I read about 9-12 books a month, but seem to buy about 6. Sigh.

  4. I bought “Nöthin’ But a Good Time: The Uncensored History of the ’80s Hard Rock Explosion” by
    Tom Beaujour from books a million

  5. I’ll be interested to hear what you think of 7 1/2 deaths. I read it a year or two ago but I haven’t talked to anyone else that’s read it yet. Greg Iles is usually good.

    I just read an article about trends in book titles. The current trend is that titles list a character’s first and last name. So of course all I’ve been noticing lately is this. Now that you’ve read this you’ll notice it’s true as well. Enjoy your books!

  6. I’ll keep an eye out for the Netflix production of 7 1/2 Deaths!
    I agree, it really feels like spring. I grabbed the snow markers from around the driveway (for the snowplow guy) and my husband said it’s my fault when we get snow – because we always get spring snow, lol. I just didn’t want those snow markers lurking anymore, lol.

  7. I had a library haul this week: Swimming in a Pond in the Rain by Saunders, Memories of an Imaginary Friend by Dicks, and Women of Lift by Melinda Gates. Then this a.m., I received a call, “Three books have come in for you. Heck, I’m still swimming…
