Constable & Toop by Gareth P. Jones

So far this book is mildly entertaining. We have ghosts in London that are being murdered, a priest that does exorcisms, a black shadowing dog eating ghosts, a weird black goop that is invading London’s buildings, a boy that can talk to said ghosts, and his murderous uncle. A lot going on, right? The story is actually pretty interesting but the characters don’t stick with you. For it to be a completely effective story you should give a crap about the ghosts getting exterminated, but you don’t. I’m going to finish it just out of curiosity.


 

What did you recently finish reading?

Silent in the Grave (Lady Julia Grey #1) by Deanna Raybourn
Silent in the Sanctuary (Lady Julia Grey #2) by Deanna Raybourn
Silent on the Moor (Lady Julia Grey #3) by Deanna Raybourn

“To say that I met Nicholas Brisbane over my husband’s dead body is not entirely accurate. Edward, it should be noted, was still twitching upon the floor.” 

I got on a bit of a kick last week, if you can’t tell. Once I picked up Silent in the Grave I couldn’t put it down. Then I needed to read the next book in the series, and then the next. I ended up knocking out all three of these 500+ page historical mysteries in a week. A little excessive, right? Couldn’t help myself. I’ll be doing a group review of all three of them which will be up on the 21st.


 

What do you think you’ll read next?

I am actually considering taking a short reading break and instead working on my own book. I’m feeling a bit burned out right now. I have finished a ton of books lately (at least for me) and setting that aside for a week and writing on my own work sounds like a tantalizing option. After the short break I do have a few options of books to read. I have purchased several, both new and used, recently which have been mocking me from the shelves. “Why did you buy me if you didn’t plan on reading me, Amanda? Come pick me up!”

  1. I don’t blame you needing a break after finishing THREE 500+ page books! If it was me I’d opt for The Other Boleyn Girl, really enjoyed that. I never seem to be in the position of wondering what to read next as I always have a list of books I need to read for blog tours, NetGalley, etc. But I don’t mind, stops me dithering….

    1. I really wished Constable and Toop had been better. I pushed myself to read another 50 pages of it today but it has become a chore. Every chapter bounces between what character’s POV you are reading from and it gets really frustrating. There are been four or five different ones so far and I’m just over half through. Overkill.

      Grave Mercy is really calling me. It is literally on my book shelf exactly at eye level as I am walking into my bed room so it has been taunting me for some time. Haha. I won’t be able to hold out much longer.
