March 2021 Additions to My eBook Stockpile

 


I actually exercised some restraint with my Kindle purchases last month, although I'm not letting myself feel very proud of the accomplishment. Why? There are two reasons. One, there's something about being hospitalized and the consequent medical appointments once one has been released that takes one's mind off acquiring eBooks. Two, there wasn't much on offer that tickled my fancy.

So what did tickle my fancy? Let's take a look! They're grouped by genre/subgenre, and if you click on a title, you'll be taken to Amazon US where you can learn more about it.
 

~~~Serial Fiction~~~

Dead Woman Driving: Haunting the Dead by Sue Ann Jaffarian. Set in Arizona. Rated three stars on Goodreads.


~~~Non-Fiction~~~

 
 
~~~Thriller~~~
 
Lies We Bury by Elle Marr. Set in Oregon. My review.
The Noise Downstairs by Linwood Barclay
New Tricks by David Rosenfelt. Set in New Jersey.


~~~Amateur Sleuth~~~

Guilty Pleasures by Judith Cutler. Set in England.
The Man Who Died by Antti Tuomainen. Set in Finland.
The Chase of the Golden Plate by Jacques Futrelle. Set in Massachusetts.


I'll bet the non-fiction title startled you, but I've had a decades-long love of historical fashion. I could give a toss about what's being worn today, but if it was worn a few centuries ago, I'm all over it.

The other title that I want to mention is The Chase of the Golden Plate. It's a heist story, which is usually right up my alley, but I have to admit that the deciding factor for me was learning that the author died on the Titanic (another decades-long interest of mine).

What about you? Did any of these books tickle your fancy? Which ones? You know inquiring minds would love to know!

  1. I read Unmentionable by Therese Oneill some time ago that in part explores the reality of Victorian fashion, I recommend it if you have yet to read it.

    1. Thanks so much for the recommendation! I have read a book with the same title, but it was fiction and by a different author.

  2. Oh, I like your choices here, Cathy. I've been wanting to read The Man Who Died. And David Rosenfelt's books are always enjoyable. Oh, and I like Linwood Barclay's work, too! Yes, I think you're in for some good reads.

  3. The cover of New Tricks is adorable. This author is on my TBR. Corsets & Codpieces caught my eye as well. I wonder what an author would call a book about outrageous fashion in the 2020's?

  4. Interesting additions, Cathy. All I can tell you for sure is that I'm extremely unlikely to read the nonfiction title you added in March. LOL

    1. I'm looking forward to reading them-- hopefully, after I've finished this glut of ARCs.

  6. I read the Rosenfelt, saw him on PP's Facebook page and I regularly read his own Facebook page so I can keep up with his 12-13 dogs.

  7. I like his humor and love the dogs on his social media.
