I do. I love it when that happens.
Today, that brown delivery-truck-of-joy produced a little box from Amazon that I requested just yesterday! What fun! I had not paid for overnight shipping. I had not paid for the books inside the box either as they were the result of a gift certificate of sorts! All the better.
Way fun. Here are some quotes from reviews:
"If ever there was a sleuth who's bold, brilliant, and yes, adorable, it's Flavia de Luce....[A] scrumptious first novel." ~USA Today
"A smashing series starter--a book readers will come to the end of wishing they hadn't read, beause it would be so wonderful to read it again for the first time." ~Mystery News
"A five-star performance for young and old...written with Dickensian flair, Sherlockian suspense and tongue-in-cheek fun...sets the bar for the series to follow."
The second book in the series, The Weed That Strings the Hangman's Bag came out last month and I've finally gotten my hands on it. Unfortunately, since it arrived on a Wednesday, the very busiest day here at The Wright Place, I haven't laid eyes on it just yet. Maybe tomorrow? Only if I can find A Circle of Quiet somewhere!! Tee Hee.
