Stacking the Shelves (557)

it’s easy to see the influence of this past Tuesday’s review of Murder on Black Swan Lane in this stack. I had a surprising number of books in this series buried in the virtually towering TBR pile, so there wasn’t as much left for me to pick up as I feared. The whole thing is such a clear candidate for the “comfort read” subsection that I couldn’t resist!

The two books I’m really looking forward to in this stack are A Curse of Krakens and Death in the Dark Woods. I picked up the audio of A Curse of Krakens because the whole, vast saga – at least so far – is a giant exercise in literally storytelling, as the reader is just listening in with the rest of the “local” audience as the story is being told. Audio SO works for that format.

I’m every bit as curious about Death in the Dark Woods as I was about the first book in its series, A Death in Door County, because the premise is such a hoot. Or whatever sound a yeti might make. The amateur detective is a professional cryptozoologist, and it seems like she has a gift for solving real-world murders while investigating sightings of mythical creatures.
