I finally have “I am Half Sick of Shadows so I will be up to the newest Alan Bradley, Flavia de Luce Novel.

My son Chris would get the blame for me sending for The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson. If I may quote the clincher for me.. (copy and paste)

 The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson – Best Jack the Ripper tale that I’ve ever read. BOARDING SCHOOL…GHOSTS….MAUREEN JOHNSON! I think that the sequel to this one is currently one of my most anticipated books. It ended in a way that I cannot WAIT to read the next one!

Yep, that did, done, doodit!

The Thirteen Hallows is written by Michael Scott and Colette Freedman.  I love, love, love Michael’s young adult series on Nicholas Flamel and thought about trying this book.  He tells me it’s NOT a ya book lol…so I mentioned that I was in my mid 60’s… I guess it’s ok that I got it huh?   Nice that he warned me it wasn’t YA though!

The last book is James Herbert’s The Secret of Crickley Hall.  I can’t remember how I heard of this one but just know it sounds like a real scary book.

So, there you have it… those are the newest books to come into this apartment… but don’t ask what I will read next because I never know!
