I just started a new series the other night. I haven't gotten very far, but I think it's going to be a good one. It is a murder mystery, fiction. A group of people belong to a club, the Real Murders Society, where they study true crime. Then they meet once a month and one person is in charge of giving a synopsis of one true crime. The heroine in the novel is Aurora Teagarden, and I've guessed she's about 28, 29 years old, single. In the first novel it is her turn to discuss a murder she's picked out and the story begins with someone murdering one of the group in the same fashion as the victim in the murder she'd planned on discussing. They are thinking it might be one of the club members who has committed the murder.
Anyway, if anyone sounds interested, I can wait and read the book later. What's nice is that we can revisit this character later on in another book if we wanted to. It's also very small and wouldn't take long to get through at all. Maybe something light to get started with. The author is Charlaine Harris. She writes a lot of paranormal books, but this is not that kind of series. Her biggest claim to fame is that one of her series has been made into an HBO show, the True Blood series. I've never seen it, though, as I don't get HBO, but I read all the books. True Blood is definitely not up your alley, Blossom.
I'm going to renew the book even if you guys decide not to read it. It's due back tomorrow and I'd put it on rest just in case we decided to read it. I've got some other stuff I can read while you all decide, but let me know soon so that I can get back into it!
I should get the True Blood series from Netflix, Aero, too. You know, I did catch one show and was disappointed. You know Sookie's friend Tara? Well, in the book she is dark skinned, tans easily, is Italian. In the series they have an African-American actress playing the part. That bugged me. Stick to the author's thoughts, please.
I know you have a gazillion things going on now, Aero, and aren't feeling that great anyway. Do you suppose I should just finish that book or do you think we'll get to it here? I renewed it last week and haven't touched it since we first started talking about reading it, but I don't know how many times I can renew it. I am thinking there is a lot going on with everyone and maybe another couple of weeks might be needed before we can open the club. What do you think?
I'll wait a little longer. I've been too tired at bedtime to read anyway, and busy during the day. I don't think they'll put up a fuss in my little country library, and I want to see if anyone else wants to read it.
