Stacking the Shelves (525)

I did say I was going to pick up the rest of the Merry Folger series, didn’t I? I really liked Death on a Winter Stroll because I really liked Merry as a character so I expect her series to be a great comfort read.

But speaking of comfort reads, well, sorta/kinda, I bought A World of Curiosities by Louise Penny earlier this week because I adore the Gamache series, even if – or especially because – it uses its very comforting characters to tell some quite disturbing stories – as was the case this time.

The book I’m most looking forward to in this stack – since I’ve already read and reviewed the Gamache – is City Under One Roof by Iris Yamashita. It seems to be based, at least a bit, on Whittier Alaska, which really is a city where all the inhabitants live under one roof. What a great place to set a mystery!

  1. I’m really looking forward to reading a World of Curiosities and to watching the new series. I just hope that Alfred Molina does Gamache justice. I really want to read the new Chloe Gong too.

    1. A World of Curiosities was wonderful. Alfred Molina made a good Gamache but I’ll confess I’m reserving a bit of judgment on the whole thing. It’s quite decent television but so much of what makes Gamache Gamache is under the surface and that’s just really hard to do on TV. Still light years ahead of that last attempt, although that’s a REALLY low bar to get over.
