Tsundoku Taming TBR – January

December is the month I get most of my reading done. I have so many holidays left to take this year that I am off work from the 14th! That so many days to just sit an read and I have lots of plans for what I want to read. From catching up with the Time police to diving into some festive mysteries. As well as my usual Agatha Christie Buddy Read and my Terry Pratchett project.

Saving Time
Jodi Taylor

Time Police #3

Continuing on from my December binge of books 1 & 2 in this series I am excited to read this one! I actually ended up receiving two copies from various people for Christmas So its even more reason to dive right in.

About the book:
Life is good for Team Weird, now heroes and fully fledged Time Police officers. Luke can’t wait to bear arms. Jane has a date. And Matthew still hasn’t had his hair cut.
But Time waits for no one and neither do criminal masterminds. A major threat to the Timeline is looming, one far deadlier than mere idiots who want to change history. And when a familiar face becomes a Very Important Lead, will conflicting family loyalties spell trouble for Team Weird?
One missing. One guilt-ridden. And one facing the end of their Time Police career before it’s even begun. Not so good then, after all.

About Time
Jodi Taylor

Time Police #4

If I am going to read book 3 then I might as well catch up on book four too. Then I would be completely up to date on both Jodi Taylor’s Chronicles of St Mary’s series and Time police series. Well until the summer.

About the book:
After their heroic efforts to safeguard the Acropolis and prevent the Paris Time-Stop, the Time Police have gone from zero to hero in but a single bound.
Then one fateful mission to apprehend a minor criminal selling dodgy historical artefacts blows up in all their faces. An officer is attacked within TPHQ. A prisoner is murdered. And investigations are about to lead to the one place where no officer can legally tread.
Worst of all, trouble is brewing for Team Weird as a surprise revelation tears the team apart.
For Commander Hay, battling to keep the Time Police afloat in a sea of storms, this will turn out to be a very long day.

4:50 From Paddington
Agatha Christie

Ms Marple #8

Continuing with my Agatha Christie Blog project I thought I would keep going with Ms Marple. Over the next few days I will be doing an update post on how I have been getting on with this blog project.

About the book:

For an instant the two trains ran together, side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth witnessed a murder. Helplessly, she stared out of her carriage window as a man remorselessly tightened his grip around a woman’s throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away.

But who, apart from Miss Marple, would take her story seriously? After all, there were no suspects, no other witnesses… and no corpse.

Lords and Ladies
Terry Pratchett

Witches #4, Discworld #14

Another one for my many blog projects this is the next book in the witches series. Again in the next few days I will be going a full update on my my Terry Pratchett Project is going!

About the book:
The fairies are back – but this time they don’t just want your teeth.
It’s Midsummer Night – no time for dreaming. Because sometimes, when there’s more than one reality at play, too much dreaming can make the walls between them come tumbling down. Unfortunately there’s usually a damned good reason for there being walls between them in the first place – to keep things out. Things who want to make mischief and play havoc with the natural order.
Granny Weatherwax and her tiny coven are up against real elves. And even in a world of dwarfs, wizards, trolls, Morris dancers and the odd orang-utan, this is going to cause real trouble. With lots of hey-nonny-nonny and blood all over the place.

Daisy Darker
Alice Feeney

I am both buddy reading this and reading it for part of my new Twelve Thrillers challenge.

About the book:

After years of avoiding each other, Daisy Darker’s entire family is assembling for Nana’s 80th birthday party in Nana’s crumbling gothic house on a tiny tidal island. Finally back together one last time, when the tide comes in, they will be cut off from the rest of the world for eight hours.

The family arrives, each of them harboring secrets. Then at the stroke of midnight, as a storm rages, Nana is found dead. And an hour later, the next family member follows…

Trapped on an island where someone is killing them one by one, the Darkers must reckon with their present mystery as well as their past secrets, before the tide comes in and all is revealed.
