A Will to Kill / My Beijing / To all the Boys I've Loved Before | Thoughts

Over the past couple of months, I've read a few books that I didn't get a chance to review yet. These were all enjoyable in different ways and are recommended reads. A Will to Kill by R. V. Raman I've been looking for an Indian mystery for a while now. So when I came across A Will to Kill in Netgalley set in one of my favorite places in India (also close to my home town), I just had to request it. In so many ways, this is a typical Agatha Christie type mystery - there's a death (in an isolated mansion, no less) and the investigator/detective tries to solve the mystery. Harith Athreya is visiting the owner of the mansion, Bhaskar Fernandez, where a small gathering has been planned for the owner's relatives and friends. Bhaskar has written two wills - and how he dies will determine which will goes into effect. That night, there is a murder and Athreya spends the next few days trying to find the culprit. I generally enjoy the Agatha Christie class of murder mysteries.

I am currently reading

The Chopin ManuscriptThe Chopin Manuscript by Jeffery Deaver (Audio book): I started this one last week. It's getting interesting, but unfortunately, I'm not getting much time to listen to it.

My reading plans for the next week

RainwaterRainwater by Sandra Brown: This one is due back in the library this Friday (one of the victims of my simultaneous holds coming together). I just might read this, I really want to, but I'll be choosing between this one and the book below!



Not my DaughterNot my Daughter by Barbara Delinsky: I've read a lot of good reviews about this book over the last week, that I'm really keen to read this one. What do you do, when you have to choose between two books you want to read? Try to read both, right? Probably give everything else second importance only? ::shudder::
Check out what others are reading here!

I'd want to read both of those too :( - I hope you manage it.

Happy reading!
I'll be looking forward to your review of City of Bones.

I came across The Chopin Manuscript somewhere, and it sounds intriguing. I can't wait to see what you think of that one either.

Enjoy your books!
