Reading This Week

The Ghost of the Mary Celeste Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age The Woman in White

  • The Ghost of the Mary Celeste is an ARC that I’ve been looking forward to reading. I liked Valerie Martin’s Mary Reilly well enough and this mystery is compelling.
  • After reading two Tesla fictions, it’s time to read some non-fiction. Carlson’s book comes well-recommended.
  • Time to get back to The Woman in White for Wilkie in Winter.

Review of Mayhem coming tomorrow and reviews of two Doctor Who novels on Thursday. For the moment, Saturdays will be short story reviews for Deal Me In. I have one more book from 2013 to review, Lightning, which I plan to double up with the Tesla bio.

Unfortunately, I also have a DNF to report: Pinkerton’s Great Detective. It is an incredibly well-researched book, but it didn’t have enough narrative to keep me really interested. I need to be grounded in a story and Pinkerton’s Great Detective seemed to lose narrative thread in favor of details. Not saying this is a bad book; it just wasn’t for me at this time.
