40. Murder in the Vicarage

By Agatha Christie (305 pp, ebook)

I have never read an Agatha Christie and one of my writing teachers, Connie Willis, said Christie was a good writer to study so I finally read one. I liked the character banter and a story written and set in the early 1900s but I did get a little bit of character fatigue. Especially for such a short book. Also the resolution wasn't that clever but also I'm a person who has watched a zillion hour long mystery type shows. Did love Miss Marple's debut.

39. Boyfriend Material

By Alexis Hall (432 pp)

This is a new-to-me romance writer. I loved Glitterland and this one seems to be a fan favorite so I bought it for myself while doing book xmas shopping. It's fake relationship story with a scruffy guy who hasn't quite figured himself out and a put-together barrister. Fun, easy read for a lazy weekend.

38. The Haunting of Tram Car 015

By P. Djèlí Clark (144 pp, ebook)

Another book that I don't know how I got but fired it up for October. Set in a magical Egypt where a bureaucrat has to deal with possessed public transportation. Fun story. I plan to track down more from this author.
