Here Comes the Body | Maria DiRico

I threw out my reading plans to read this fun, new cozy mystery series. When part of the mob family takes over an event venue, to run legitimately, you know there has to be some interesting things happening! For Mia, her first gig working for her father turns into a disaster when someone is found murdered. Recipes at the end sound delicious! I‘ll happily continue the series, though major editing issues throughout the book did give me pause.

Librarybelle And, because I started this on a day that was supposed to be a vacation day but wasn‘t completely (thanks to world events), I‘m calling this a #VacationRead for #BBRC #YeahBaby . Besides, cozy mysteries are perfect vacation reads! @LibrarianRyan @StayCurious 2y

There is something about being an adult that makes reading about teens getting killed more and more fun each year. In this #VacationRead ten teens go to a party on an island and one them is set on killing the others.

BookwormAHN @jillannjohn I'm getting out Thursday for supplies and will probably mail your book back to you then. I also have Wychwood from @MaleficentBookDragon I haven't read it yet, but I was wondering when I do should I send it on to you or back to her? 2y
jillannjohn You can send it back to her. Thanks. 😃 2y
LibrarianRyan 😁👍🏻❤️ 2y

MaleficentBookDragon I liked this book. I ♥ all riffs on 2y
BookwormAHN @jillannjohn Got it 👍🏻 2y
BookDragonNotWorm I agree! Have you read any of her other books? 2y
BookwormAHN @BookDragonNotWorm I haven't. Have you? I plan to see what else she has out. 2y
BookDragonNotWorm I've read several others by her, but I can't recommend #murdertrending enough. It might be the most perfect slice of ingenuitive YA murder fest that I've ever encountered. Definitely a fresh idea! 2y
BookwormAHN @BookDragonNotWorm Thanks I'll check it out. 2y
Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick 🤣🤣🤣 I agree about the teenagers. Some books pull me back to high school and good times, others have characters that need to fall into a wood chipper. 2y
BookwormAHN @jillannjohn I mailed your book today 😺 2y

I finished this #VacationRead in the perfect setting!! I really had a hard time putting down this atmospheric and addictive debut novel! It‘s a definite discussion starter for sure! I loved the way all the characters and voices came to life and I couldn‘t imagine reading it in a more perfect place! Plus, my #bookmark (an airport treat to myself!) just added to my fun! I can‘t wait to see what the author writes next!!

TorieStorieS @AmyG I am looking forward to chatting more with you about this one!! 🥰🥰🥰 2y
Cinfhen I really liked this one too and enjoy wherever you are!!! Looks beautiful xx 2y

Man Called Ove | Fredrik Backman
post image

A pick for making me smile, maybe tear up just a little, once or twice, and (GASP! Ove would NOT approve) hold onto the book past its due date.

Ove is an old-before-his-time curmudgeon, who, with a little help from his new, heavily pregnant and decidedly interfering neighbour Parvenah, shows himself to be quite loveable.

I laughed from the start, enjoyed the stylised storytelling, and thought the way his backstory was revealed was quite clever.

Librarybelle Great choice! 2y
TheDaysGoBy I like that cover! Different than what I‘ve seen 2y

One! Hundred! Demons! | Lynda Barry
post image

Not really my type of art. However I did appreciate the author‘s concept, looking back at the “demons” that shaped her young life and who she would become.

Since it‘s my last of 16 glorious days off work I‘ll count this as my #vacationread for #BBRC #YeahBaby.

I don‘t want to go back! 😢 I‘ve loved this relaxing reading time.

LibrarianRyan Yeahh. I get it. I went back to work last Thirsday. Off did I drag 2y

Some of this read is very predictable, and some just asinine. It was a quick read and I like most of the characters, just not all of them. I enjoyed this series, and it ends on a cliffhanger, but I am not sure I care enough to read the second book. I have it, but it‘s not a priority.

Jane of Lantern Hill | L M Montgomery
post image

I was away for the week on a much-needed, off-grid vacation, and while I was there, I read Jane of Lantern Hill for the first time. Where has this delightful book been all my life?! Seeing Jane find both herself and, eventually, her family, was so rewarding. L.M. Montgomery, I continue to bow down! #vacationread #lmmontgomery
