May 2019 Additions to My eBook Stockpile

I stockpiled a few more books during the month of May than I did in the previous month. I think this was due to the fact that several of my favorite series had new books released, and I read some new-to-me authors that prompted me to buy the next book in their series. I also have some faithful readers recommending books to me who need to be thanked for increasing the size of my fictional comfort blanket.

Let's take a look at the books I downloaded to my Kindle during the month of May, shall we? Each book title is linked to Amazon here in the U.S., so if you live in another country, keep that in mind if you want to buy and download the books.

Have you already read any of these books? If so, do you have any comments to make about them? If you haven't read any of them, have I piqued your interest in a title or two? Which ones? Inquiring minds would love to know!


  1. Oh, nice selection, Cathy. I didn't know there was a new Hannah Dennison out - I'd like to read that one, as I enjoy her Honeychurch Hall series. And you can't go wrong with an Elly Griffiths. Ooh, and a Horowitz, too! You've got some good reading ahead of you.

    1. Yes, I do, don't I? As far as the new Honeychurch Hall mystery, it looks to me as though Dennison had some problems with her US publisher, which is a shame.

  2. So many here that interest me, but I love the the idea of The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek!

    1. I finished reading it a week or so ago, and it's good!


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
