A quick #5forFriday this week as I'm in the middle of writing the first draft of The Allure of Attraction, the third book in my Matchmaker of Edinburgh series. 1. I'm loving the iTV mystery The Loch. It reminds me of Broadchurch, just set in the Highlands and without a very pasty David Tennant (a shame I know). I'm not sure when it's out in the U.S., but it's a good one to keep an eye out for.
2. I blew through Heartthrobs: A History of Women and Desire by Carolyn Dyhouse this week. Dyhouse looks at the men who have been deemed desirable throughout the early 20th century in movies, romance novels, and more. If you're interested in history, gender, and sexuality, it's a fun read.
3. I run around Hyde Park, and I've recently been seeing lots of signs for the British Summer Time concert series which kicks off in the concert tonight. While Phil Collins is the first headliner, Blondie's got second billing so I've been listening to Heart of Glass, The Tide is High, Call Me, and Sunday Girl all afternoon.
4. Alexis Anne's new book Night Games is now out! She's writing a lot about baseball these days and while I know it's not specifically to make me happy it does have that very nice side effect.
5. On Wednesday night we were randomly visited by Morris Dancers. Well, they visited the pub across the way. It made for an...unexpected night.
