It's no secret that
I'm no stranger to the library...
I'm a library card carrying kind of girl:)
I have always loved books.
So I wanted to tell you all about a series that I have read this summer that I
really really love:)
The first in the series is called
"The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie"
The setting is in the charming country landscape of 1950's England.
The books are written in the voice of
11 year old Flavia De Luce...
who lives in an old victorian mansion
with her father and two older snobby sisters.
Flavia is my new heroine.
She is a chemist/crime solver...
who loves to get back at her older sisters for being so snobby.
I fell in love with her immediately...
she makes Nancy Drew look like a
goody two shoes...haha!!!
Come to find out...
I'm not the only one who feels this way about Flavia!
The books have won several awards and there is a Flavia De Luce fan club!!!
Second in the series....
Third in the series...
And the latest in the series.
There will be another coming out early next year called
"Speaking from Among the Bones"
and then another
after that called
"The Dead in their Vaulted Arches"
I can't wait!
I don't normally read murder mysteries
but these were just too wonderful
to pass up and besides...
getting to know Flavia De Luce
is the icing on the cake :)
I love a good series...
how about you?
What's your favorite reading this summer?
I'd love to know...
I'm always looking for the next good read:)
