The Bibliophile Files!

Hello and welcome to The Bibliophile Files - a monthly linky party to share what we are reading. I am reading towards 2 specific challenges but you might be reading books, magazines or even cereal boxes.

Since my last report on 2/4/14 I haven't finished as many books as I would have liked but never fear, as I have 12 books and audiobooks checked our from the library to take care of the following letters: ABEEFMMMORRV and 3 colors. I am pretty sure the library has me on their radar for too many checkouts...

Below Stairs (2/13/14) - I obviously picked this book during a Downton Abbey spurt. It was a little bit of a hard read at first as it's autobiographical and I wasn't used to her writing style but the information she shared on her rise from kitchen maid to cook was fascinating. The book was obviously a source of information for the DA show and it was fun to hear where the details came from.

The Moore (2/15/14) - This audiobook is #4 of a Sherlock Holmes series titled Mary Russell. I always the deductive reasoning by Holmes and his wife Russell as they solve yet another who-dunnit.

Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey ( 2/18/14) - Yipper, another Downton Abbey audiobook pick but this time about the Carnarvon family who lived in Highclere Castle, now home to DA. It certainly was a life of luxury!

Last Precinct (3/2/14) - This is book #11 in the Kay Scarpetta Series. I'll be honest, at first I thought this audiobook was too much of a rehash on the last book with nothing new to add but eventually new details came to light making this book more interesting than expected.

Currently in my stereo and on my nightstand...

Great bit of reading for this month. I've enjoyed some of the earlier Kay Scarpetta series. I may have to pick those up again. I'd seen the Below Stairs book and thought it looked interesting. I may have to put it on my list!! :)
