The outcast dead by Elly Griffiths

Hardcover, 374 pages

Published March 11th 2014 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 

Series: Ruth Galloway #6



Book 6! Yes I have gone through these fast. Quite addicted, I did not know I had it in me.

In this one Ruth is looking at the bones of a woman convicted for killing children. While Nelson is investigating actual child killings and kidnappings.

I have given up the though of these two together, wont happen, should not happen.

Another thrilling book where she does her archaeology thing, and the police solves cases. I just really like these and want more.

On to book 7!!

Forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway uncovers the bones of a Victorian murderess while a baby snatcher threatens modern-day Norfolk in this exciting new entry in a beloved series.

Every year a ceremony is held in Norwich for the bodies in the paupers' graves: the Service for the Outcast Dead. Ruth has a particular interest in this year's proceedings. Her recent dig at Norwich Castle turned up the body of the notorious Mother Hook, who was hanged in 1867 for the murder of five children. Now Ruth is the reluctant star of the TV series Women Who Kill, working alongside the program's alluring history expert, Professor Frank Barker.

DCI Harry Nelson is immersed in the case of three children found dead in their home. He is sure that the mother is responsible. Then another child is abducted and a kidnapper dubbed the Childminder claims responsibility. Are there two murderers afoot, or is the Childminder behind all the deaths? The team must race to find out-and the stakes couldn't be any higher when another child goes missing.

A dying fall by Elly Griffiths

Hardcover, 391 pages

Published March 5th 2013 by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (first published December 20th 2012)

Series: Ruth Galloway #5



I am really reading through these :D I already started book 6!

In this one Ruth, her daughter Katie and Cathbad goes to Blackpool to see if the bones found are those of King Arthur.

Nelson is also there on vacay and looking into a murder of the man who found the bones. The whole Nelson Ruth thing is still so tense. Dang!

I really like Cathbad btw, the weird, really weird druid from book 1 is not a really good friend to Ruth.

As for the murder, I did feel she was more involved before, but now she also has her own things going on. Like omg is that really the bones of King Arthur. Wont spoil that.

I never knew I was such a mystery person

Ruth’s old friend Dan Golding dies in a house fire. But before he died Dan wrote to Ruth telling her that he had made a ground-breaking archaeological discovery. Could this find be linked to his death and who are the sinister neo-Nazi group who were threatening Dan? Ruth makes the trip to Blackpool to investigate, wary of encroaching on DCI Harry Nelson’s home ground. Soon Ruth is embroiled in a mystery that involves the Pendle Witches, King Arthur and – scariest of all – Nelson’s mother.

There are forces at work in the town that that threaten all that Ruth holds dear. But, in the final showdown on Blackpool Pleasure Beach, it is Cathbad who faces the greatest danger of all.

Audio: A killing Frost by Seanan McGuire

Narrated by: Mary Robinette Kowal

Series: October Daye, Book 14

Length: 11 hrs and 48 mins

Unabridged Audiobook

Release date: 09-15-20


Publisher: Audible Studios


I do love my Toby books, and 3 books ago I went over to the audio side. So yes I am a bit stuck in my own head still, and I am still not sure about Tybalt (kind of how I felt about Curran when I went over to audio there). But Kowal is doing such an excellent job. I am so glad I went over to audio.

Toby and Tybalt are still not married, and he wants it done now! But, faerie law is stupid, and she is told that Simon has to be there. Simon, that complete asshat. So she has to go find him.

Adventure time with friends. Danger a plenty. Faerie being faerie. And blood being spilled.

I do love this series and it is still going strong, though I truly hope that Tybalt and Toby will get married soon, oh and that they will be happy! That poor woman needs a happy ending.

Oh and something happens here that made me go all whaaaat!

Awesome series, what are you waiting for?

And yes the narrator is great, audio is a great way of experiencing this series. Her Toby is the only Toby I can hear now

When October is informed that Simon Torquill—legally her father, due to Faerie's archaic marriage traditions—must be invited to her wedding or risk the ceremony throwing the Kingdom in the Mists into political turmoil, she finds herself setting out on a quest she was not yet prepared to undertake for the sake of her future.... and the man who represents her family's past.

September 22nd: What are some bad reading habits you kicked or want to get rid of?

This is the same answer as last week. My bad habit was finishing everything, and then I got rid of it (well almost,it is an evil habit to have).I do feel so much better when I donot finish every sucky book.
