Books I read in November 2012

Great quote about books from Doctor Who! I was inspired by a new years resolution of friends of mine to keep track of all the books I read each year. So I have been posting every month a list of the books I read. We are almost to the end of 2012....

Books I read in November:

A Play of Lords by Margaret Frazer The players go to London!
A Play of Treachery by Margaret Frazer
Bright Orange for the Shroud by John D MacDonald
Your House is on Fire, your Children All Gone by Stefan Kiesbye (library) spooky
I watch therefore I am  by Gregory Bergman and Peter Archer (library) Philosophy from TV shows, yes it is possible! a bit of fun
The Poison Tree by Erin Kelly (library) liked, similar to Kate Atkinson and Elizabeth George
The Corpse in the Flannel Nightgown by Margaret Scherf --Ms. Scherf was a ghostwriter for one of the Nancy Drew mysteries and she also wrote many other mystery books under her own name during her short career
Strapless by Deborah Davis (library) I read Guest of Honor: Booker T. Washington, Theodore Roosevelt, and the White House Dinner That Shocked a Nation  by Davis last month and enjoyed it so much I decided to read more of her work. This is about artist, John Singer Sargent.
The Forever Marriage by Ann Bauer (library) enjoyed it, would recommend
Inside Joss' Dollhouse ed. by Jane Espenson essays about the Joss Whedon TV show Dollhouse
When it Happens to You by Molly Ringwald (library)--I thought it was just okay
Niceville by Carsten Stroud (library) loved this one, very Stephen King-ish Creepy, but great characters I will be looking for more by this author!
The Proud Tower by Barbara Tuchman (library) history about the world before WWI, from my obsession with Downton Abbey and Maisie Dobbs and other WWI novels, this book gives you what the world was like before WWI
Bright Orange for the Shroud by John D MacDonald
Darker Than Amber by John D MacDonald 190 pages read in approx. 2 1/2 hours on flight from Seattle, WA to Charlotte, NC
