This Rough Magic | Mary Stewart
post image
Pickpick

I picked this up at a used book store thinking it was the Mary Stewart of the Merlin Trilogy. This Mary Stewart is an English writer of romantic mysteries. The story takes place in Corfu with beautiful descriptions, has references to The Tempest, and for my mood completely. Perfect with a cup of chai on a blustery fall day

Tagged book is my pick for November‘s best book.
I haven‘t updated this #2022ReadingBracketChallenge since July! The second level choices have been so difficult that I can‘t imagine what it‘s going to be like to pick a winner. I‘m also surprised at how many non-fiction books have made it to the second round.

I found this book after my mom mentioned she‘d like to read a book based in the area of Scotland that our ancestors lived in Argyll. While I didn‘t really hit that mark with this pick, I found a story that absolutely absorbed me. I‘m a sucker for time travel books, and while I would say this is more of a dual timeline, I loved how the author created the link between the two. I will definitely be adding the next in the series to my January TBR!

JamieArc I love all of Kearsley‘s books. While I wouldn‘t normally pick up books with time travel or supernatural elements, her books do such a good job at creating a real sense of place that I always want to return to. 4h
keys_on_fire @JamieArc - Yes! Such a great point. I could definitely see this translating into a movie or mini-series because of that fact. I'll have to do some digging to find out if any of her books have been translated to film... 4h

#tbt The news keeps threatening snow here, but today is beautifully sunny.

Makes me think of winter reads though, and Ruth Ware is always a win in my opinion. Even if I figure it all out before the reveal I enjoy the ride.

Hoping to read a few more winter themed books in the next couple of months!

I really love the #TrappedonanIsland challenge hosted by @aperfectmjk !!

@PuddleJumper you've ended up on this wintry island. Luckily it happens to have a cozy cabin, plenty of hot chocolate, and this pile of books!! I haven't read any of them, so I mostly went with #CoverLove 😂 Happy reading!!!

PuddleJumper It's a good way to pick them! Thanks! 10h

This rom com was so funny. Almost like hate to love relationship, even when things happen too fast (dangerous). There are sexy parts, spicy as it is called now. Too repetitive these spicy parts but it seems is the modality now🤷🏽‍♀️That end was so funny. I liked the mystery part. It made me laughed. 3⭐️

TheAromaofBooks I ended up bailing on this one. Too spicy for me! 😂 10h
Gissy @TheAromaofBooks Yes! I think is like a modality, present in in many books genres. I finished this one because there were funny parts. Don‘t read Katee Robert, her books go beyond spicy, I like the story but they are too spicy🤷🏽‍♀️ 5h

November reads! I have a few I‘m in the middle of, but I don‘t think I‘ll finish them tonight. Lots of fun cozy mysteries, and some romances as well. They balance out the crazy serious ones 🤣
