From my December post I read:
- Jane of Lantern Hill by L.M. Montgomery (review)
- Lord Edgware Dies also titled Thirteen at Dinner by Agatha Christie (audio) - I couldn't find this on audio, so I was going to read the book when lo and behold I found it on audio under a different title. Go figure! Christie does such a good job of disguising who the murderer is. I was fooled!
- The Twelve Clues of Christmas (A Royal Spyness Mystery) by Rhys Bowen - Yes, I know I keep reading these even though I'm not sure what I think about them, though I get a big kick out of all the references to Prince Edward and Wallis Simpson.
- Six Ways to Keep the "Good" in Your Boy: Guiding Your Son from His Tweens to His Teens by Dannah Gresh - Highly recommended! (review)
- The Swiss Family Robinson - I had this on January's nightstand, but read so many other books that I didn't start this one early enough to get it finished for this month's nightstand.
- The Importance of Being Seven (A 44 Scotland Street Novel) by Alexander McCall Smith
- Bertie Plays the Blues (44 Scotland Street) by Alexander McCall Smith - It's been awhile since I read anything from the 44 Scotland Street Series so I took some time to catch up if only to find out what is happening to poor Bertie.
- The Walnut Tree: A Holiday Tale by Charles Todd - I really enjoyed this book. It was a great little story that can be read at anytime of year so don't let the subtitle confuse you.
- Wedded to War (Heroines Behind the Lines) by Jocelyn Green - This book focuses on woman nurses during the Civil War and the struggles they faced. I found this a very interesting book.
- The Beekeeper's Apprentice: Or On the Segregation of the Queen (Mary Russell Novels) by Laurie King - Another series I'm going to check out. I enjoyed this story that includes a young woman and Sherlock Holmes. I thought it very much kept the flavor of the original Sherlock Holmes stories.
- Creating Space: The Case for Everyday Creativity by Ed Cyzewski - Recommended over at Lisa Notes... last month I was delighted to find it for free at Amazon for Kindle. This was a nice reminder of the importance of creativity in our lives and being how to be intentional in doing so.
- A Philosophy of Education (Homeschooler Series) by Charlotte Mason (review)
- The A. B. C. Murders: A Hercule Poirot Mystery by Agatha Christie - Finally, I figured out the murderer before the end of the story!
- A Civil Contract by Georgette Heyer (review)
- Powder and Patch by Georgette Heyer - This won't be one of my favorite Heyer reads. It wasn't really my cup of tea (or rather Dt. Coke since I don't like tea.)
- The Quiet Gentleman by Georgette Heyer (review)
