@Readergrrl @BethM @Captivatedbybooks
If we go historical fiction the only book I have is the tagged book, 2 fantasy picks (I have others but they are way over recommended page count, if no one minds and we pick fantasy I can pull some others) 2 thriller choices, I have 100000 thriller options these looked really bingeable though

BethM I‘ve not read any these. Doomsday Conspiracy pulls me in the most. I‘m also ok with the group ending up on eclectic genres instead of one genre. now

I had some trouble rating this book because the book itself can't quite seem to decide what it wants to be. It‘s also not exactly a novel, but somewhere in between. A novel with some thriller aspects. A slow-paced suspense with a lot of backstory. A spy story not about the spy at all. A missing person case with a long explanation as to why the detective takes on missing person cases. Something like that. The point is, I really enjoyed it. But⬇

TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) I'm also not sure exactly why 😂

Great #LMPBC pick @bookandbedandtea !! @Jerdencon @robinb

Ok #lmpbc group here are some options. Mix of mystery, light fantasy/scifi, and historical. Please let me know. I‘ll tag the rest of the books below for ease. @Captivatedbybooks @Readergrrl @5feet.of.fury

5feet.of.fury I haven‘t read any of those! Skin Map looks really good if we do settle on fantasy! now

I'm a sucker for kids' books from the 50s and 60s, but this one was a dud. I don't mind a young character being kind of not-smart/ignorant so that the reader can learn alongside of them, but the girl in this book was so stupid that I worried for her overall survival into adulthood. I think it was supposed to be funny? But it was just annoying lol

I absolutely love this series. I adore Charlotte Holmes as Sherlock. This book just added to my love of the characters in this series. I also really liked that Olivia has started writing and can‘t wait to see how that story line will continue. Its refreshing to see that all the women in this series are extremely interesting, intelligent and talented. It has a great mystery, beloved characters and potential love stories. A perfect mix for me.

Second book in the Haven‘s Rock series (spinoff of the author‘s Rockton series) & a solid entry. The town is getting off the ground but of course things are not settling down. There are big changes for Casey & Dalton & danger lurking when the youngest resident disappears into the fiorest after Seeing a “bear man.” I liked the twists & turns the story took & hate to wait a ⬇️

DebinHawaii … a year for the next book. I listened to the audio (I couldn‘t wait for the library copy to come in so I used a credit) & Therese Plummer did her usual great job with the narration. 👍🏼👍🏼 5h

I love this book. This is the first of the Pendergast novels. A monster goes crazy and starts killing people in a museum. The monster's reveal at the end is one of the best.
Also I've dnfed about 5 books this month and needed a palette cleanser. This book worked perfectly 💚

I finished my 3rd book for the #Roll100 challenge (#44) On my #BOTM stack, I‘m glad I finally got to it. It‘s a lighter pick for me. I loved the setting of The Cloisters. I was in NYC in 2008 & we spent the day there (my first & only time seeing it) & I loved how atmospheric it was & thought the author captured that well. The arts, antiquities & academic aspects were interesting as was the tarot card ⬇️

DebinHawaii …details. It did drag a bit in the set up & I wished I liked the MC or any of the characters more. Still overall, it held my interest & had me Googling more information on multiple subjects, so while not a favorite of the month, still a pick . 7h
