This week has been a great reading week. Apart from a really fun buddy read, I have also finished an absolute beast of a book.

Marple: Twelve New Stories (2022) by various authors was a buddy read with Lillelara and Moonlight Reader, and it was so much fun.

The book itself was a dud, apart from a handful of stories that I liked.

I added my thoughts to each of the stories in a bit more of a review here.

When Christ and His Saints Slept (1995) – Sharon Kay Penman

This is my 4th book in this series by Penman, and it is only now that I am reading the series in order of events. At 928 pages, this was a beast of a book. Howver, even though it could easily have cut 400 pages, I really enjoyed the ride. Once the book came to the meaty matter of Henry and Eleanor at around the 600 page mark, I absolutely loved it. I hope to jot down some more specific thoughts about it later this week.

I am already looking forward to getting the next book in this series in the post, hopefully in a few days.
