I am normally such an organized person. Really...truly...organized...to a fault. Ask Den. I even like the cats' toys organized. But I cannot get a grip on organizing what I read and when I read it! That's why I mostly don't commit to reading anything that locks me into a time...mostly. However...I did tell the lovely Melanie that I would "talk" about this book on Sept. 9th...of course not remembering that I don't even look at my blog or think about it on the week ends. So I am talking about it now...I love books where lives are forever changed and this one sounds really good!
In this one..."a heart is broken, a cruel truth is revealed, a secret is shared and a love is betrayed."
You can't ask for much more than this in one book!
I truly think I am done with even this kind of book tour...way too much pressure!
So...over the week end I totally fell in love with this book. Out of the blue...from NetGalley. Miss Seton is a yoga loving, bike riding, retired teacher/artist who lives in a tiny English village. I think this is the 23rd book in this series and I also think the original author has died but I think there are two more authors involved in this series. I hate reading books out of order and I was a little scattered in the beginning of the book...not only is Miss Seeton quirky but a lot of her neighbors are, too. I can't even figure out the time period...there are cars and it's after WWII but I don't detect any sign of cell phones or iPads. Miss Seeton works for the police in that she draws stuff for them and this helps them solve crimes. Again...I am just into this book and I plan to read more of them...in order. Her neighbors always seem to be talking about what Miss Seeton does...especially the yoga! But it keeps her very limber! The town she lives in is called Plummergen! I love this cozy mystery!
Here is the first book in this series but I can't find it anywhere. See! This one has a different author. Oh...and Miss Seeton always carries a brolly/umbrella.
I am also reading a very cool book about mermaids and oil spills...sort of a fantasy...could be dystopian...maybe? The author found me and asked me to read his book...he produced tons of Disney stuff...so I am reading it. It's very mermaidish but they get legs when they are on land. Three mermaid friends get caught in an oil spill and are separated...and found separately by a marine biologist, a famous model and fraternity brothers...I have no idea where this book is going next...but it's kind of addictive.
Perhaps my reading is so disorganized because I have books coming in from so many different places...and every once in awhile I add an ebook from the library and that throws everything out of control because I push the library book to the front of my disorganized stack. Plus dates sort of mean nothing to me...I just read what I want to read...without thinking about the publishing date...my bad.
A few new books...
