I knew nothing about the author before I went in. Yet, I had read her Maxi Pad Letter, just didn't connect the two.

I enjoyed this immensely. I like Aarons' sense of humour. There are lots of truths about being a woman in western society in this book.

#GhostCat and #ShadowCat cuddling while I type a review is rare.

Pub Day was in 2021

This was bland. Didn't finish, because nothing happened and I didn't connect with the MC.

I liked the idea of the story, Underground Railroad conductors turned detectives, and there is magic involved. Sadly, I didn't like the execution.

Too many characters are introduced, all lacked back story. The magic system is not really explained. The mystery is interesting, but since there was too much telling, via dialogue between the two main characters Hetty and Benjy, it was not very engaging.

The story starts with Audrey at her wedding that wasn't. In alternating chapters going back to hours before the wedding ceremony and years before the reason why the wedding didn't happen is slowly unfolding.

I liked most of the story. The romantic grand gesture didn't really resonate with me, it was a bit OTT.

Low pick!

Amidst all the #ARCs I should read off #MountARC, this book just dropped onto my kindle. It's the fourth book in the Time Police series. Naturally, all other reads are on hold now.

Christmas #RomCom novella about an English teacher who wants a quiet Christmas. Quiet Christmas turns into Christmas w/ her mother, sister, father+new wife, freeloading ex-bf. To get out of the house she goes on dates organised by a dating app.

I thought the MC was a tough teacher, but she's a pushover. It wasn't a very funny story either.

I thought this was a Christie-esque murder mystery set in a Scooby-Doo-House. It was flat characters, weird metaphors to create anagrams, puzzles the reader can't solve, a predictable outcome, typos,...

Who writes "obvs" in their prose?

julesG @MicheleinPhilly Had it occurred in dialogue, I wouldn't have worried. The author also misspelled the MC's name. 😬 2mo
MicheleinPhilly Good grief. Who edits these things? 2mo

Sue Black's All That Remains has a reference to Theseus's Ship, so does this Christmas novella.

This read like The Name of the Wind with a South Asian twist. That might not be bad. Yet, my tastes have changed since I first read TNOTW. Lots of people will love this epic high fantasy, but the voluble prose couldn't hold my attention. I DNF'd at 28%.
