Currently Reading


Just finished Oolong Death. She is coming out with a new one "The Teaberry Strangler" and her Cackleberry Club series has a new title "Eggs Benedict Arnold". I have to wait for my library to get them.
Did you know Miss Read wrote a new book. She wrote it with someone. The concept was hers, but someone else actually did the writing, if I understood her right. So I just started this one. I'm having trouble remembering the characters. I'm going to have to go back and read the series again. But I so happy to have a new Miss. Read. I'm not buying books, but I had to get this one.
I discovered Miss. Read as a young mother reading her way through the fiction shelves in my local library. I didn't realize at the time what a treasure I had found, although I did love them. I use to want to live in the world in these books, but reading about them was a way of doing that.
Recently I read one of her books that I've had but never read because it wasn't part of the Fairacre series or the Thrush Green one. It's "Fresh From the Country" I loved it.
Miss. Read lovers, do you read the books in order of how they were written or do you read all the Fairacre ones together and all the Thrush Green ones together? I started out reading them as written and found that I followed the story better when I read the Fairacre ones together and the Thrush Green ones together. Then there are some that don't fit into either of these series.
I have all of her books so I've read them several times. I haven't read them now for some time I guess it's time to start again after I finish this one. I'm not sure if I'm past my obsession with British village life or not.
