I'm behind on my reviews and blogging, but here we are for TBR Thursday!
Last week, I read:
Murder Must Advertise by Dorothy Sayers; The Picnic at Hanging Rock by Joan Lindsey; Arrow's Flight and Arrow's Fall by Mercedes Lackey, The Chinese Shawl by Patricia Wentworth, both A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door by Madeleine L'Engle, and The Pale Horse by Agatha Christie. (No wonder I am behind in my posts - that's 8 books. Holy cow).
This week's plans:
Looking ahead to next week, I am planning to work on the Tommy and Tuppence books that I've not read: Partners in Crime and N or M. I'm not psyched about these, mostly because I think that Christie's "thrillers" are her weakest books and these are both within that general wheelhouse. But, I'm going to complete her backlist, so here we go!
I also have a couple of library books that I plan to read, including Our Spoons Came from Woolworths by Barbara Comyns, which is next up, and Death of Airman by Christopher Sprigg, from the BLCC series.
Finally, I'm putting The Franchise Affair by Josephine Tey and The Balkan Trilogy by Olivia Manning on my list of immediate reads! I already own both of them. The Balkan Trilogy is (obviously) a three book bundle published by NYRB classics - I own the kindle edition (it's over 900 pages long). And I have an old edition of The Franchise Affair that I picked up at the UBS with a different cover - I'll post a picture at some point.
Excellent Women by Barbara Pym has been pushed back to next week, for a BL buddy read! Join us if you can - use the tag pymalong!
I've also started working on my first Project Night Night charity quilt, and I should have a finished quilt to show you next week. For now, here's a preview!

Happy reading, everyone!
