Reading progress update: I've read 42%.
Smouldering Fire - D.E. Stevenson

This is purportedly a bit darker of a D.E. Stevenson novel. I bought it a while ago, but it made its way to the top of the TBR because I need a book with "something related to autumn" on the cover, and this book definitely has fall leaves on the cover.

 

Just as an aside, I really love this cover.

Murder on the Orient Express - Agatha Christie

I need a train book! I was vacillating between this one and 4:50 From Paddington (since I used Murder is Easy for the "Set in Africa" prompt). While I dearly love 4:50 From Paddington (aka What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw), I've read it more recently than Murder on the Orient Express, so Orient Express it is.

 

I won't start this one until tonight, so if you can think of any alternative golden age mystery novels where someone travels by train (esp Allingham/Marsh) let me know in the comments and I might choose something else!
