March's Books

After a bumper month of reading in February I’m back to reading a more normal (for me) number of books in March, finishing reading 7 books, all of them from my To Be Read shelves, bringing my total for the year up to 26:

  1. Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
  2. Death Under Sail* by C P Snow
  3. They Do It With Mirrors* by Agatha Christie
  4. The King’s Evil* by  Edward Marston
  5. The English: a Portrait of a People by Jeremy Paxman (non-fiction)
  6. The Office of the Dead* by Andrew Taylor
  7. The Time Machine by H G Wells

The books marked * are crime fiction and my favourite book of the month and also my Crime Fiction Pick of the Month (hosted by Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise) is:

The Office of the Dead by Andrew Taylor, the third book in the Roth Trilogy, a chilling novel of crime and retribution.

  1. Sounds like you read some really good books last month. The Paxman book is the only one of those I’ve read. I must look up that Andrew Taylor series – he’s a very good writer.


  2. Diane, it was – I like variety.

    Margot – it was an easy decision, I loved it.

    Prashant – I first read some of CP Snow’s books many years ago, but not they weren’t crime fiction. This one was a surprise – and I liked it.

    Charlie – yes it was a good month, but The Office of the Dead was by far the best.

    Cath – yes I did! Do look up the Roth Trilogy – they’re all good.


  3. I like the variety of books you read, Margaret. I really want to get to that Taylor trilogy soon, you made them sound very good and interesting.
