READ THIS SERIES!
I have told you so many times how amazing Flavia de Luce's stories are. The first time was after the joyous surprise that The Sweetness in the Bottom of the Pie turned out to be, then after I read The Weed that Strings the Hangman's Bag, then again after A Red Herring Without Mustard. And I believe I might have mentioned it again after I Am Half-Sick of Shadows and, yes, after Speaking From Among the Bones. And now I've just finished book six, The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches, and I'm going to make one more plea to those of you who haven't started this series yet to please, please, please give it a shot. The story gets better with every book and this latest one is absolutely fantastic.
I gave away two copies of Sweetness for Christmas, hoping to create some new fans of the series and this is my not at all subtle attempt to create a few more. Please, if you love mysteries and/or quirky characters and/or simply fun reads, give Flavia a try.
Practicing my broken record routine,
