Kill Your Darlings - Yellow Team (Round 1)
As Death Draws Near (A Lady Darby Mystery) - Anna Lee Huber

 

Hi everyone! Long time no see-I missed you guys! I hope everyone is doing well and having a wonderful year so far! I'm trying to get back in the Booklikes swing of things so when I saw this lovely game I thought, hey that's the perfect way to do it! So here I am...I just finished this book for the Weapon card: Cause of Death-Arsenical Toothpaste (Author with first name that begins with the A in Arsenic) and I'm reading for the Yellow Team. I hope I'm doing this right, if not, please let me know. 

 

P.S.- I'm still having a hard time reviewing and posting. Everything I try to do is taking forever to load so I take it there's still some tech issues or is it just me??

The Anatomist's Wife (Lady Darby Mystery # 1) [Audiobook]
The Anatomist's Wife (Lady Darby Mystery) - Anna Lee Huber,Heather Wilds

As I've already reviewed the book, this review will only cover the audiobook. For my thoughts on the story, characters, etc., please click here.

 

All I have to tell you is I read this book twice last year, the second time using the copy I'd just bought, for you to understand how much I love this series. The three books that make it up are easily some of my top 10 of 2014.

 

I almost grabbed this the moment I saw this available on Audible but held back. This audiobook was one I knew I'd need to try out before purchasing. With the setting in Scotland and the multitude of characters, the narrator was going to have quite a task.

 

By and large, Heather Wilds delivered. Philip's accent was good and most of the characters stood out as best as such a huge cast could.

A Grave Matter (Lady Darby Mystery # 3) - Recommend having this handy while reading # 2
A Grave Matter - Anna Lee Huber

Do not read the second book in this series without having this on hand; you have been warned. I literally put down Mortal Arts in order to pick up my phone and start the library ebook copy of this.

 

After the events of the last book, Kiera was left devastated and retreated from both society and her art. However, a disastrous first-foot at a family member's Hogmanay Ball brings another case right to her doorstep.

#BookadayUK - Day 6-7 (October): First Book I bought and Last book I bought in a bookstore
The Witch of Blackbird Pond - Elizabeth George Speare
The Anatomist's Wife - Anna Lee Huber
Mortal Arts - Anna Lee Huber
Final Catcall - Sofie Kelly

Day 6: First Book I bought

 

I have zero idea. I think it might have been a paperback copy of The Witch of Blackbird Pond. That seems right.

 

Day 7: Last Book I bought

 

...Apparently my brain doesn't keep this kind of information. I know I write this stuff down but can't seem to find it.

 

Used bookstore (McKay's): A huge book haul. The first two Lady Darby series, books from various cozy mystery series, etc.

 

New bookstore: Final Catcall is the last one I can remember.

Mortal Arts (Lady Darby Mystery # 2) - Wow
Mortal Arts - Anna Lee Huber

When I checked out the first book from the library, I was unhappy to see they only had Vols. 1 and 3. Murder by Death told me I had to read them in order (and you can see how much I wanted to move on because I NEVER read out of order), I didn't know what to do. Fortunately, we were meeting MbD at book paradise (aka McKay's) and luck was with me for Vols. 1 and 2 were there. That night I devoured the second book and was glad I waited, while chronologically the book takes place over a few days, it really changes where I saw this series going.
