    87: Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters. Cozy mystery revolving around an intrepid Edwardian lady archaeologist. 3/5
    88: The Celts by Nora Chadwick. History of the Celtic peoples. A good if brief roundup for its time, but a lot of more recent archaeology has proven some of this somewhat inaccurate. 3/5

      I've come to the conclusion that collecting yarn, and using yarn are two entirely separate hobbies.

        The Monsanto Papers by Carey Gillam - 5/5 - The explosive story of the recent (2018) legal case against Monsanto over the carcinogenicity of glyphosate (Roundup). Covers the trial of Dewayne (Lee) Johnson against Monsanto which set a legal precedent finding coverup and complicity in hiding the dangers of glyphosate. Lots of dry, scientific stuff, but extremely well researched and compelling reading.

          89: Illustrious Company by Colin Gale. Material from the archives at London's Bethlem Hospital. I didn't expect a lurid catalogue of cases, but this was very dull and barely managed to give the subjects any humanity. 1/5
          90: Foundation. Classic science fiction by Isaac Asimov. 4/5
          91: The Mistletoe Bride by Kate Mosse. Very enjoyable short stories themed around folklore, loss, grief and the supernatural. 4/5

            92: The Schirmer Inheritance by Eric Ambler. A reasonably good thriller but a bit formulaic if you have read Ambler's other work. 3/5
            93: Foundation and Empire by Isaac Asimov. Second in the classic sf trilogy. 3/5

              De Chinese Sjaal by Patricia Wentworth (Dutch translation of The Chinese Shawl) This is probably the fourth or fifth time I've read this book - a great mystery and well done. I re-read it mostly to keep up my mother tongue. Still, a very well-developed mystery.

                94: A Case of Spirits by Peter Lovesey. A Sergeant Cribb mystery, and a great one. 5/5
                95: Second Foundation by Isaac Asimov. Last of the sf trilogy. 3/5

                  96: Q In Law by Peter David. A novel set in the universe of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Quite enjoyable. 3/5

                      Aunt Dimity seems to have been pretty active too!

                    97: The Thursday Murder Club by Richard Osman. I was a bit wary of this, it having been hyped so much, but it turned out a pretty enjoyable mystery. 3/5
