🎧 The Fragile Threads of Power by VE Schwab @veschwab‏ @KateReadingVO @MichaelKramerVO @marisacalin @MacmillanAudio #LoveAudiobooks

I was so excited when I learned there would be more story in the world of A Darker Shade of Magic. The ending of that trilogy was so powerful with sacrifices by some of our main characters.  So I was thrilled to get the next phase of their stories. Many of the old characters and […]

🎧 Yumi and the Nightmare Painter by Brandon Sanderson @BrandSanderson @MichaelKramerVO @KateReadingVO #LOVEAudiobooks @SnyderBridge4

The third book in Brandon Sanderson’s hugely successful Kickstarter is Yumi and the Nightmare Painter.  This has been my favorite of the three books as it is set in the Cosmere, has some manga and Asian cultural influences and has a great story told by Hoid who is currently stuck at a statue while his Criptid […]

🎧 The Frugal Wizard’s Handbook for Surviving Medieval England by Brandon Sanderson @BrandSanderson @MichaelKramerVO @KateReadingVO #LOVEAudiobooks @SnyderBridge4

During the pandemic, some writers couldn’t write a book, others delivered like nothing was going on, some changed drastically what they were writing. But, Brandon Sanderson was/is a little different than everyone else out there and he not only delivered on his promised contracts but also wrote not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 […]

Everything at this point is a spoiler for earlier books in the Lady Sherlock series. I would read this series in order because the complexity of the characters and relationships which are just as important as the particular cases.  In Miss Moriarty, I Presume? Charlotte ends up faking her death to throw Moriarty off her […]

🎧 The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan #RobertJordan @KateReadingVO @MichaelKramerVO @MacmillanAudio #LoveAudiobooks @4saintjude

Back in 1992, my soon-to-be husband brought home what might have been the thickest paperback novel I’d ever seen, The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan, the first book in the Wheel of Time series.  As we were both students with full schedules at the time, opportunities for ‘joy-reading’ were few and far between.  […]

I love this world and its layered characters!   There are many threads from the previous book,  The Murder on Cold Street which take us into a new adventure.   I would read this series in order because the complexity of the characters and relationships which are just as important as the particular cases.  They build over […]

I have enjoyed every book of the Lady Sherlock series but I’ve been a bit frustrated with the background romantic aspects.  I expected The Murder on Cold Street to be an especially engaging installment because Inspector Treadle has been arrested for the murder. As always, I thrilled to hear all the investigative tactics with interviews […]

This Lady Sherlock series  has been so addictive for me.  I like this sort of mystery and the British accents and locale.   There is a background romance? with Lord Ingram and Charlotte Holmes. I am totally invested in it and it moves back and forth at a snail’s pace. I was frustrated, wanting a bit more […]
