Rambling About.. Alan Bradley's The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches

The last time I read one of Alan Bradley's Flavia de Luce books was in March. Even though at the time I had said that "the very last sentence was the clincher that makes me itch to start the next book sooner than later," when it came right down to it, I couldn't dive right in.

I knew that there would be feels that I didn't necessarily want to embrace quite yet.

Holy fudge was I ever right!

This book hit me hard and hit me repeatedly and I really can't say much about it without giving away whole lots of the previous five books ... so I won't even try. If you've read any of the previous books, keep going ... IN ORDER ... and then grab a box of tissues when you get here. This is a crucial installment and should not be skipped under any cirsumstances. If you haven't read any of the others, do so. Especially if you love historical mysteries, but even if you normally don't. This series is so much more than that. Start with The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie.


  1. I don't know how I have missed this series but it seems like in the last few weeks I have suddenly seen it everywhere and I want to read it. :)

    1. I think you would absolutely LOVE it! The 8th book was just released in September and I'm dreading catching up... but I'll probably reread the whole series multiple times over the years because it's just that good!
