Shoot That Book combines my passion for books and my tendency to become trigger happy with a camera. My lack of photography skills is compensated by my enthusiasm. Basically, I like taking pictures of books.
I have recently decided that I need Dorothy Sayers in my life. I’ve heard good things about her books from Sounis so I know it must be an excellent series. Looks like Lord Peter Wimsey is a great character. These are the Dorothy Sayers books that I have copies of:
I asked around and heard that it would be good to start with Strong Poison, which is why I bought a used copy ages ago. Check out the old school cover:
According to credible sources, I should bump this up the TBR pile because the romance between Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane is comparable to the love story in my favorite YA series of all time: the Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner. Shouldn’t be surprising since I did mention that I heard about the books through Sounis.
So now I want to grab copies of the three other Peter-Harriet titles (Have His Carcase, Gaudy Night and Busman’s Honeymoon) because I want to read them together. Unfortunately, the books aren’t available in the library here in Singapore. I even dropped by two bookstores today to see if they have copies but they’re out of stock. I need to find out if these are available in Manila – otherwise, I’d just order them from the Book Depository. Have you read Dorothy Sayers’ books? Feel free to share your thoughts about them.
