⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This was a pretty good Brennan book. After 17, you'd expect them to start getting stale, but I thought this was one of the better ones. Narrator did a great job.

#scarathlon points: 2,726 (6 hours, 5 thons, #promptmaze, 18 calendar prompts, and 212 word search words) #teamslaughter @clwojick

Children of Chicago | Cynthia Pelayo

Panpan

Interesting premise that didn't quite come together for me. It's part fairy tale, part police procedural, somewhat reminiscent of Lauren Beukes, but not as well put together. It includes some interesting history about Chicago, but it's delivered by characters who sound like they're reading internet search results. And I don't think the MC could have gotten a master's degree in lit and then joined the police and made detective by age 25.

ImperfectCJ 7 hours, theme read (because of the police thing), 86 points for #TeamSlaughter #scarathlon @Clwojick 12h

My #bookspin for September. I always enjoy Fiona Davis‘ books. I love how she weaves a woman‘s narrative around historical events that I‘m not familiar with. She also has a way of capturing New York City in a way that makes it just as much a character as the people in her stories. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

4⭐️ I quite liked this book. I have known about her property in Palm Beach and as I read the book, I was quite surprised at what an amazing woman she must have been. I wish she had had a husband who was better suited for her. #2022 #bookreview #bookstagram #historicalfiction #fiction #basedonatruestory #wwi #greatdepression #wwii

This was my October #bookspin book

Well rounded characters, action, intrigue, and humor…love the humor. Spy craft with so many double crosses your head will spin…but in a good way…so well written that the twists and turns in the plot don‘t confuse the story, and you always feel engaged. ❤️ #bookspin

Mehso-so

I feel like my so-so here is rather generous. I love Stephen King's stories. Or I hate them. I find there is no in between. Now, for the first 3rd I thought this was gonna be a love. But, alas, the last 2/3, which on audio ran for 16 hours of the 24 total, was a slog. I got to 2 hours from the end and very nearly bailed. So, again, so-so is generous. But, hey, you may love it.

#scarathlon total: 1,416 #teamslaughter

Traci1 14 hours - I kept speeding up the audio to get through it faster x 6 thons plus 37 words, 12 calendar prompts, and a #promptmaze. #bookspin #spookaween2022 #littenlisten #31by31 @Clwojick @aperfectmjk @TheSpineView @TheAromaofBooks @Catsandbooks 18h
Clwojick Great for points though! 😂 17h
CaroPi I did love the book. A real tribute to the classics... But not all the books are for everyone and that is good. I also dislike books that others love 🤷‍♀️ 17h

Traci1 @CaroPi yeah, the reviews seem mostly really positive. I'm not sure what makes them so hit or miss for me. The Stand is one of my most favorite books that I reread a lot. I hated Gunslinger and refuse to read more of those. Loved It and Pet Sematary, and the Mr Mercedes books are brilliant. Couldn't stand Rose Madder or Duma Key. But I will continue to read them all because when i love them, i really love them. 16h
Traci1 @Clwojick yep. I'm sure I missed a ton of word search points when I zoned out though. 🤦‍♀️ 16h
TheSpineView That's disappointing 16h
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 15h
TheQuietQuill I felt the exact same way about this one. Loved the first half and then, I got absolutely bored with the rest. His books are a hit or miss with me too. 13h
Catsandbooks 🙌🏼🖤👻 13h
CaroPi @Traci1 I think that in order to be so prolific you can't make books that everyone loves all the time... Salem's lot is the next one from him in my list. I loved It but hated the last 5 pages. Normally I am really disappointed with his endings 2h

First book finished for #TeamSlaughter #Scarathlon. Eleanor and her sister Maddy, agree to help the new bookstore owner with her grand opening featuring a famous chef. When the chef is murdered in Eleanor's pizza palor, they set out to find the killer. I like this cozy series. My #Bookspin book for October. It also fills A2 in #PromptMaze #Spookoween #31by31 #BodyCountBingo @Clwojick @TheAromaofBooks @TheSpineView @Catsandbooks @PuddleJumper
