Welcome to another Monthly Summary on Pages and Tea.
Autumn is here, Readers Imbibing Peril is happening now and throughout October, and my first month of Peril reading has been pretty exciting…
I discovered the secret of Wayward Pines in the trilogy of the same name by Blake Crouch. What a time I had. I can’t remember the last time I sped through a trilogy so quickly. I just couldn’t put these books down, and always wanted to read one more chapter, find out one more twist or secret, and how it would all turn out in the end. I was sad to reach the end of the trilogy, but there are more books by Blake Crouch so I’ll definitely be adding at least one to my future TBR lists.
From Pines, I ventured next to Wakenhyrst, and the atmospheric home of Maud Stearne, Wake’s End. Maud’s father committed a terrible crime, but what drove him to it? Was there really something out there in the wilds surrounding this isolated house, and did it really have anything to do with a demon in a painting? The darker nights drawing in was the perfect time to pick up this novel and discover what happened to Maud and her family years ago.
Endless Night by Agatha Christie was my next read and I’ll say more about this sometime soon – it wasn’t what I was expecting.
Top Ten Tuesday provided me with the perfect opportunity to pick out some book covers and this time I went for darker coloured covers. I’d initially decided on the colours of autumn, but that’s an upcoming topic.
Another post provided a chance to glance ahead and pick out some potential reads for my favourite season. As I’m still participating in Readers Imbibing Peril it gave me a chance to update my reading list for the ongoing challenge and add a couple of titles that I missed when I first wrote my sign up post.
