I‘m doing a physical read and a audio of this book. My commute to work is being put to good use :)
Keeping my fingers crossed 🤞🏻 that this is exactly this type of book :)
So I‘m gonna start this one today (it‘s cold out and I am gonna stay in bed under my weighted blanket). ❤️ also I downloaded it from Libby as an audio book so when I do my cleaning chores I can pick up where I left off :)
It's a bit weird.
You don't realize it's weird in the beginning because it's actually quite fun at first.
But, halfway through you're going to speed up the audio because you're bored now
And then you're going to get to the end and be like....
No he did not
Where are they again?
Loved this audible! Definitely kept me guessing right to the end but plenty of facts / information that it‘s fun to have your own investigation on going throughout 😀
What a wild ride. I loved every moment of this book. The author really kept me guessing. (I don't try and guess while.reading a mystery.. I live the shock of the story as it comes together the feeling that it gives me!)
I am sorry I didn't read this when it came out last year! B but better late then never! it was delightful and a great mystery.

I am going to head over to BookBar in Denver at 10am to do some reading for my #24b4Monday and Dewys Readathon
I started a new audiobook last tonight titled: A Trace Of Death!
Bookbar Website https://www.bookbardenver.com/
I am so glad that Denver has Book Haunts!
#TIL This book has two titles The English title as listed and the American Title which is The 7 and 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle Fascinating!
Below are my books for the Reading Challenge this weekwnd! #Dewys24Readathon
Question: Do any famous authors participate in any Reading Challenges? I very curious!
I just finished "The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle" by Stuart Turtan for our Library book club. It was very confusing. I recommend getting a notebook so you can keep track of what is happening. The book was clever and I was satisfied with the ending. It took so much talent to write a novel like this one. I don‘t have enough room to say any more, but you should read it if you like puzzles!
This was very long and I thought the premise would get old but I found it very entertaining. I didn‘t love everything. The revelation of the connection between Anna and Aiden felt totally rushed and I just didn‘t buy the motivations. It seemed like the author came up with the premise but couldn‘t figure out a way to explain how Aiden got there and just threw something in. I‘d rather they just left it a mystery like the some of the other elements
Oh my goodness! @TheSpineView what a package! I could barely fit it all in the picture. I love everything! Two books I can‘t wait to read PLUS a B&N gift card, and tons of Fall/Halloween goodies. I love the book sleeve and the bag. (I might have to go trick or treating!) You went above and beyond! I can‘t thank you enough for such a wonderful and thoughtful package. #screamathonswap
What a wild and intricate plot. I'm not very into the mystery genre but this takes it to a new level. Looking forward to whatever this author does next.
Wow, this was a stunning debut. The writing was impeccably executed & kept the reader engaged. A murder mystery novel, that is atmospherically enthralling. The reader follows along the MC who is tasked with solving a murder that happens at the end of the night. This character will experience the day 8 times all from the perspective/body of a new host. If you are in the mood for a thrilling murder mystery, check this book out! Perfect fall read.
@Avanders Sorry for the delay in posting, I took the pic but then got busy. I absolutely love everything! The coffee is fantastic and Murder in the Orient Express actually just broke me out of a reading slump! And the kids thought it was amusing how happy I was to get socks 🧦 ☺️#SFMBC
♟ The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle was fantastic. I couldn‘t put it down, I put off housework to keep reading (and I‘m paying for that today 🙈)
This book was the perfect mix of being able to guess twists and never seeing them coming. It kept me guessing and also satisfied with my ability to figure things out, exactly what I want in a mystery novel.
I have recommended this book to every I see since finishing it!
Labor Day reading while we monitor Dorian. We are inland FL so don‘t plan to evacuate, but I‘ve got loads of snacks, flashlights, water, and books. So I‘m kinda looking forward to some power outages 😝
On #ADayInTheLife of Aidan a myrder happens - the murder of Evelyn Hardcastle. However, this doesn‘t just happen once. No, Aidan must re-live the same day again and again in different bodies until he solves the murder of Evelyn.
I have been on a photo challenge break for too long now! Let‘s see how long I can keep up with the posting schedule 😅
Alright so I'm loving this one...and the author seems like an absolute dear...and it's getting me in the mood for more historical murder mysteries. The spookier the better. I haven't explored this genre a whole lot, so I'd love some recommendations.
This was a murder mystery unlike any I‘ve read before. The main character inhabits the bodies of eight hosts in order to attempt to solve the murder of Evelyn Hardcastle. Helpfully there was a list of characters at the front to keep everyone straight although you still really had to pay attention to all of the twists and turns in the story.
This book is straight up addicting and blowing my mind...
Ella says, 'stop reading! It's time for rainy walkies'
So so confusing at the beginning, middle and then I loved the end. I think a major part of my problem is I tried to read this at the beach during family vacation with lots going on. It's not something that I was able to easily jump back into after a break. Would have been better for me if I had several uninterrupted hours to devote to Evelyn. But overall, it was so inventive and for that it's a total pick. #audiobook #familybookclub
My family book club #beachread for our week at the beach! 🏖 hopefully it gets a thumbs up! We are all a bit confused so far.
I really tried to like this but 50 pages in and I couldn‘t do it. I don‘t know if its because I‘m not in the right mood for this kind of book (even though I JUST finished a murder mystery before picking this book up) or because of the writing or plot. But either way, it hurts my heart to DNF this one but I fear I may push myself into another reading slump if I try to force myself to continue.... 🙈
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Whereas I took my time reading my last few books, I finished this big one in 2 days. I can't believe how hooked I was on the plot, the characters and how everything ended fitting together! It was absolutely amazing and I've already recommended all my friends read this. It was a very compelling read that always kept me wanting to continue, one more chapter every time. I'm especially amazed at how the MCs are written.
I visited a BAM! for the first time yesterday (there aren't any in the northeast where I grew up), and they had a buy 2 get 1 free deal! This is my haul! Which should i read first??
I love Poirot and Agatha Christie style crime drama. I also love confused timelines and plots that zig zag through time. This should have been the perfect book for me. I was slowly drawn in to the world and rubbing my hands with glee, making mental notes of all the characters and using the map at the front to figure out where everyone was. My trouble was the book came to an end, then seemed to bump along the bottom for a while, adding too much.
It‘s been a while since I‘ve posted, but don‘t worry, I‘ve been in good company with my sweet boy and my reading list.
