  1. Ooh Ann Cleeves- I haven't read her books yet. I like your three things this week. :)

    Hope you have a great new week ahead!

  2. Love the horse photo! All your books are new to me.

  3. I want to find a restaurant gem, especially if our kitchen is being renovated and we are getting takeout all the time. I enjoy Anne Cleeves and would like to read more of her books.

    Anne - Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post

  4. Yay for finding a new restaurant gem and for a visit to the horses at Golden Gate Park. Looks like you scored some good thrillers and mysteries this week.

  5. White Ivy has been on my list since it was released. Hope you're enjoying it!

  6. I wanna watch Bob Ross: Happy Accidents, Betrayal & Greed (2021)!

  7. The Sleeping Nymph looks interesting

    Wishing you a great reading week

  8. How fun to find horses at Golden Gate Park!

    The Sleeping Nymph sounds like my sort of story.

    I'm always on the lookout for virtual author events. That's one good thing about the pandemic, I think.

  9. I keep seeing WHY IVY...hope it is good.

    Enjoy your books and your week.

  10. I like horses anywhere! More interesting books for you. The Glass Room sounds interesting.
    Happy Reading!
