It is partly your fault that my library pile is as large as it is because you keep mentioning tempting books and I HAVE to read them! You have done it again in this post - I really like the look of Time After Time, The Right Sort of Man, The Fountains of Silence and Searching for Sylvie Lee although to be fair Tracy Chevalier's book has been on my wish list for a while.
I still haven't read Erin Morganstern's first book but I have read earlier books by Ruta Sepetys and Jean Kwok and really enjoyed both.
Planning on watching the second series of Killing Eve this weekend - two episodes in and it is equally addictive!

I love all of the variety you have. I try to use my "for later" bookshelf in my library account so I can at least keep track of some of the books i want to check out but I think that's only made things worse. I have wishlists everywhere - library, amazon, excel, you name it. Haha...

The Single Thread sounds so interesting. I'm intrigued - and trying to recall the last Chevalier book I read. As always, thanks for this list.

Penny O'Neill

Me, again. I just remembered the last Chevalier book, which was quite good and you might like - The Edge of the Orchard. Penny

It's only fair I tempt you with books, as you have given me some really good suggestions as well. At this point I will pretty much buy, order or add to my wishlist anything you suggestion! ;) I was at the bookstore and looked at Time After Time and The Right Sort of Man and both look really good. I had to force myself to put them back on the shelf since I am in line for both of them and just need to be Patient! I think I would be more likely to read Erin Morganstern's first book if I had it in paperback. Seeing as I am always carting around more books than I should, I try and avoid dragging around hardcovers! (Unless they are smallish anyway). I am not sure if it is b/c I hate not being able to have a book Right Now, but I am most anxious for the Tracy Chevalier novel--as it is not out here until almost fall! I am almost finished with season one of Killing Eve--it is so good, though the violence is a little disturbing. Still I am amused, too, by the humor in it. Glad to hear the second season is just as good.

I know my For Later shelf is pretty full, too. I need to go in and clean it up. I tend to add books to it, but then there are constantly new books coming out so I think it is rare that a for later book ends up in my queue. Like you, I have an Amazon wishlist and one for The Book Depository. And then I am always jotting down titles in my little notebook. So many titles scattered all over the place.

Danielle

Doesn't it sound really good? I can't wait to get my hands on it, though I have several unread books by her I could spend time with now rather than waiting for yet a new one. Happy to share my new books list!

Danielle

I will check it out. I think the last couple I didn't get around to buying or borrowing as I have a few at home (and need to catch up-ahem). It seems that I have heard good things about it from other readers as well.

I don't think the Chevalier novel is out here for a while either so we will have to be patient!
Having watched the third episode of Series 2, I don't think the writing is quite as sharp as the first series (the script writer isn't the same) but I will keep with it.

I don't have a "for later" shelf at my local library, and it's probably better for me. The Chevalier book and the Ruta Sepetys book seem all very nice as I've loved previous novels by these 2 authors, but the one I now covet is the Right Sort of man, which sounds like the Right Sort of book for me!

I just knew that you would love "Killing Eve". And I think there is SO much to think about in terms of how they subvert your expectations. How often you think you know what direction things will head, and, then, nope! Now, I can't remember: did you read the novels that the show is based on?

Danielle

I am waiting to jump into the second season of Killing Eve--too bad the writing is not quite as good. I think Phoebe Waller-Bridge did the first season (and I think she is really great!), but maybe not the second, then? Did you watch both seasons of Fleabag? I know they pretty much crossed every boundary, but I thought it was really hilarious. I will watch the second season again soon. I both want and don't want there to be another season. It sort of ended just right.... And it is not like I have Nothing else to read until the new Chevalier comes out! Did or are you planning on reading the new Elizabeth Gilbert novel? I just got it from the library last night. I need to start it like tonight if I want to read it before the due date....

Danielle

I have read a number of books by Tracy Chevalier and enjoyed them all (some more than others) but I have not yet read Ruta Sepetys, though she has been recommended to me. Yes, I also covet the Right Sort of Man. I came so close to buying it last time I was at the bookstore, but as I am trying not to buy hardcovers I made myself wait--I am not too far back in the line for a library copy. Patience!!

Danielle

I didn't read the books, but we do have the first one (at least it must be the first--how many are there?) here at the library. For once I think I just want to watch the show and not read the book. I found myself being both repelled by Villanelle and rooting for her. That last episode--those final scenes--shocked me completely--both what Eve pretended to do and then what she actually did. I am waiting a few weeks before watching the second season--as with Fleabag--once I watch it that is it. I wonder if they will film more seasons, or if it ends just right. I am not sure I want there to be more seasons of Fleabag--it sort of ended just right and I am not sure where they would necessarily take the story.

LizF

I did enjoy Fleabag, Phoebe Waller Bridge is wickedly funny, and I think it is her humour that is missing from series 2 of Killing Eve. Having said that, he series is still far superior to most other TV series so well worth watching.


I have requested City of Girls from the library so hopefully wont have to wait too long to read it - unlike the new Tracy Chevalier which doesnt come out here until September. Im sure it will be worth waiting for though. Really liked At the Edge of
the Orchard which was the last book of hers that I read.

PWB is wonderful. I wonder what else she has in the works. I will pretty much watch anything she is in or writes for. I have the Gilbert book--I have not yet started it--this is so typical of me--I bring home a much wanted library book, but then I have so many other books in progress that I wait to start the new one (usually until it is too late). However, I have read good reviews of the Gilbert and I have a long weekend next week to look forward to as well!! I will have to look for that Chevalier--I think other readers have mentioned liking it as well!

LizF

She is apparently working on the script of the Bond film that is currently in production so that will be an interesting take on the traditional Bond girl!

I think I did hear that--now that you mention it. Now that would be an interesting take on Bond--I will have to watch for it!
