Sundays in Bed With is hosted by Midnight Book Girl.
I haven’t been feeling very well for the last couple of days, so I decided to alter my plans of trying to make macarons today. Probably not the best thing to do for the first time when your muscles are aching! I am planning on getting all of the ingredients and giving it a try tomorrow, though. Apparently, your first batch of macarons are supposed to be a failure, but I sure hope not because, man, is almond meal expensive!
Anyway, onto the book I’m reading today! Those of you who follow me on Instagram might have seen a picture of it a couple of times already. It’s Missing Joseph by Elizabeth George. Missing Joseph is the sixth novel in the Inspectory Lynley series, and I’m really enjoying it so far. It started out a bit slow, but that seems to be a feature of all of them. I’m about halfway through now and really intrigued with the little town in which the story takes place. What I love about these stories is that every single one of the characters has their own problems and secrets, and you really get to know all of them throughout the book. Also, I have absolutely no clue whatsoever who has killed the vicar (the murder around which the whole story revolves), which makes it even more intriguing.
I’m also reading another book at the same time, which is the Dutch translation of The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness. In Dutch it’s called De Kraanvogelvrouw and I’m reading it for a Dutch literary website (Tzum) for which I review translated novels. This novel isn’t out in stores yet in the Netherlands and I actually received a manuscript instead of a bound book, which I thought was kind of cool (but also a bit of a pain to hold while reading). The story is based on a Japanese folktale and I’m really enjoying it so far!
What are you reading on this (cloudy) Sunday?

Hope you are feeling better. Inspector Lynley is always a bit slow but never short on a few dead bodies and loads of side tracks to misguide you. Definitely a great read.
Thank you, I’m feeling a bit better, yes! I really love the Inspector Lynley mysteries, but they aren’t really page turners. At least, not at the start. At some point she makes everything so intriguing that I really can’t stop reading. Haven’t got to that point yet with this one, though.
