The Sayers Swindle
The Sayers Swindle: A Book Collector Mystery - Victoria Abbott

Jordan is back. She is searching for Vera's stolen Sayers books. She and Karen have become friends and she helps her daily in the hopes that she will remember what she has forgotten after the attack she had received. Karen does finally remember who may have the books and where he lives and they go in search of him. Along the way, they run into Officer Smiley (the police officer that Jordan is starting to get to know) and her Uncle Kevin has come into the picture. She and Karen have a bad feeling about the old man and think someone (namely the wife and "son") are drugging him, so they enlist the help of Uncle Kev and the neighbor to find out the truth, so they can involve the police. She meets a woman that she thinks is a police officer by the name of Candy. 

 

By the time, you reach the middle of the night visit, you feel that Candy might not be what she is claiming to be. I do feel that some of the information about Dorothy L Sayers made me want to take some time to read a few of her books. I am not certain about this series of books and may read one more and then decide if I want to read the last one or not.

Reading progress update: I've read 146 out of 282 pages.
The Collector - John Fowles

I am enjoying the book as a whole. I have just started Part 2 which is written from Miranda's POV which I am not liking quite as much. Still, it makes for a rivetting read to see the story from both points of view.

Nor Iron Bars a Cage by Kaje Harper
Nor Iron Bars a Cage - Kaje Harper

I would love to know more about pretty much everyone in this book (other than Lyon and Xen). More about Tobin and the king. More about that annoying captain, who drove Lyon crazy in the second part of the story. There is So. Much! Loved it.

There's a Wocket in my Pocket Dr. Seuss Collector's Edition
There's a Wocket in my Pocket Dr. Seuss ... There's a Wocket in my Pocket Dr. Seuss Collector's Edition - Dr. Seuss A lot of nonsense but at least the words rhyme and there is something resembling a story. It is more suitable for kindergarten kids than beginning readers.

The Sin Collector (Masha Karavai Detective Series) - Shelley Fairweather-Vega,Daria Desombre

A brilliant law student (still very much perturbed by her father's mysterious murder and slightly obsessed with serial killers )manages to find herself an internship at Moscow's police headquarters .As bodies (both of unsolved murders in the past as in the present )turn up in different parts of Moscow, Masha discovers a strange pattern relating to medieval texts,maps, New Rome and Heavenly Jerusalem. The storyline is good, the characters are believable and it is a new twist on "the serial killer ".There is however one comment I would like to make, as Moscow plays such a prominent role in this story,a map of the city would have been helpful,handy...As it is,all the characters revolve around maps with different gates, walls and parks...but the reader(not a resident of Moscow) feels a bit lost.
