I received ONE books in my mailbox:

1) It Takes a Murder by Anu KumarWhen Gautam Dogra is found murdered in his study one afternoon in the small hill station of Brooks Town, the police dismiss it as a relatively simple case. But Charlotte Hyde knows well that a murder never happens in a day-it follows its own timeline. As Kerketta, Charlotte's old retainer, always said, a murder is written into your life at the very beginning. As Charlotte begins telling the story of Dogra's death, it soon becomes clear that his story can only be fully understood in the light of many other stories. Of her estranged daughter, Maddy, of the political climes in which they lived. Of lost hopes and lost loves, of small humiliations and disillusions and, above all, of the slow incitement to violence that the terror of loss brings into quiet lives.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey

I finished reading:

Nothing. As I wrote here before, I have Central serous retinopathy in my left eye....which is fluid leakage under the retina....that means I have blurred vision for now....

Do you ever get crushes on fictional characters? Name one (or a few), and tell what you liked…

In my younger days, I had crushes on fictional characters, like Mr Rochester but not any more.....

"Murder is written into your life at the very beginning" - That is so haunting! What a great line though. Enjoy your reads.

I hope that you recover soon. I would be at a loss without the ability to read. Are you compensating by listening?

The book sounds good, but take of that eye. Perhaps some audiobooks for a while until it heals.
