This Week in Books 24.02.16 #TWIB


Welcome to my weekly post, where I sum-up what I’ve been up to in bookland the past week. 

Happy Wednesday, everyone. Hope you’re all having a good week. I was out of commission for a few days last week with a horrible cough that totally wiped me out so I didn’t get a great deal of reading done. I did however watch a lot of Netflix. Silverlining and all that!

Here’s what I did get through:



Now:  All Things Cease to Appear ~ Elizabeth Brundage // The Madwoman Upstairs ~ Catherine Lowell

I couldn’t decide which one of these to start so I started both. ATCTA didn’t grab me straight away but The Madwoman Upstairs did and now I can’t put it down. I’ll go back to ATCTA when I’m done (which will probably be before this is posted) 😉

Then:  Into the Dim ~ Janet B. Taylor

I’m so happy that I loved this! My review will be up soon.

Next: ???

After All Things Cease to Appear I think I’ll choose something off my TBR shelf which I posted about here.

From Netgalley:

Murder at 42nd Street Library

murderat42Murder at the 42nd Street Library opens with a murder in a second floor office of the iconic, beaux-arts flagship of the New York Public Library. Ray Ambler, the curator of the library’s crime fiction collection, joins forces with NYPD homicide detective Mike Cosgrove in hopes of bringing a murderer to justice.

In his search for the reasons behind the murder, Ambler uncovers hidden–and profoundly disturbing–relationships between visitors to the library. These include a celebrated mystery writer who has donated his papers to the library’s crime fiction collection, that writer’s missing daughter, a New York society woman with a hidden past, and one of Ambler’s colleagues at the world-famous library. Those shocking revelations lead inexorably to the tragic and violent events that follow.

Expected publication: April 26th 2016 by St. Martin’s Press – Minotaur Book


 I’m Waiting On…

(Linking up with Breaking the Spine)

Magruder’s Curiosity Cabinet


I saw this on Netgalley and couldn’t resist. I hope I get approved for it! I’ve always been intrigued by Coney Island.



After Kitty Hayward’s mother vanishes from their Coney Island hotel in 1904, Kitty finds herself alone, hungry, penniless, and far away from her native England. The last people she’d expect to help her are the cast of characters at Magruder’s Curiosity Cabinet, a museum of oddities that is home to a handful of freaks. But even the unusual inhabitants of Magruder’s may not be a match for the insidious sickness that is plaguing Coney Island…

Expected Publication: June 1st 2016 by SOURCEBOOKS

So, that’s my week in books, now how about yours? If you’re joining in leave the link to your answers in the comments so everyone can take a look 🙂

  1. I hope you’re feeling better! Any title with Murder and Library in it immediately has my attention. I think of the game Clue, which I love. Lol. 😉 Happy Reading!

  2. I’ve seen Into the Dim around on social media a lot. I need to check that book out! Here’s my post for this week. Happy reading!
