    My Sunday Post

  3. I have too many ARCs from NetGalley to read and it's hard to not request more. The Manhunt cover is a little scary. Hope you enjoy reading it.

  4. I just read the 4th book in the Lucy Barton series. I love Elizabeth Strout's writing.

  5. I've never read an Agatha Christie book and I really need to change that soon. Have a great week!

  6. Great books you have highlighted. I am just finishing up a Clare Mckintosh novel and love it.

  7. Nice stitch work!
    I have read plays by Agatha Christie, but not this one, sounds great!
    Here is my post:

  8. Hope you enjoy My Name is Lucy Barton as much as I did. Have a great week!

  9. Nice cross stitch. Several mysteries this week. I like Agatha Christie and that is a nice cover. Have a good week and Happy Reading!

  10. I've enjoyed everything Elizabeth Strout has written. My Name is Lucy Barton is one of my favorites.

    We keep talking about going to the theater. It sounds like a great play!

  11. I don't know any of these books...hope they are good.

    Have a good week.

  12. I read a later book in the Lucy Barton series. I hope you enjoy it and have a good week!

  13. Manhunt certainly has an eye catching cover! I'm intrigued.
    I read My Name Is Lucy Barton a few years ago and loved it, hope you do too. Happy reading!
