Mimi Lee Gets a Clue | Jennifer J. Chow
post image
Mehso-so

I spent today reading this cozy mystery. While it kept me engaged there were problems with it. The psychic connection between Mimi and her cat , Marshmallow was hard to believe. Especially when Marshmallow understood other animals and translated conversations. There were other issues but I don‘t want to give any spoilers. Just suspend your disbelief and enjoy the Lee family.

Ruby Dixon has written a new story with a green half-orc romantic lead ( no blue aliens ) in a more fantasy than scifi setting. It‘s a fun escape if you‘re looking for something spicy 🌶 🌶 🌶 and sweet.

Really enjoyed this one. A fun enemies to lovers story it kept me entertained during my flight ✈️ . Olivia and Ethan are forced to take a honeymoon trip to Maui even though they hate each other. Predictable in all the best ways 👍👍 . Had to include a photo of the puppy 🐶 I loved 🥰 petting in Calgary.

A Complicated Love Story Set in Space | Shaun David Hutchinson
post image
Pickpick

There are a lot of things I liked about this YA m/m space romance but I‘m thinking listening to the audiobook may not have been the best way to enjoy it. It‘s too hard to go back and review confusing scenarios. I did root for Noah and DJ but it was a very complicated story. I did enjoy the humour and their side kick Jenny - there‘s even an annoying holographic character also called Jenny. A bit of a Red Dwarf meets The Matrix vibe. Low pick

I spent today listening to this touching story set in London during World War 2. This is a charming story so not graphic or dark. But there aredefinitely sad moments- it‘s war time- and there are tears. I think this would make a good PBS mini series.

Thoroughly enjoyed this Flavia de Luce mystery: Dogger and Flavia have set up their own investigation business so of course they stumble over a body . This is apparently the last in the series- I hope that‘s not true.

The most precocious twelve year old in mystery fiction is back on the hunt for a murderer. She and her trusty bicycle 🚲, Gladys are traveling the icy roads interviewing suspects while her dad lies in hospital with pneumonia. This one‘s bittersweet and I‘m not happy with the author. Loved this audiobook- the narrator is sooo Flavia 🤣

tpixie I‘ve always wanted to read this series but have not …yet. Are they YA or MA books or is the character just a 12 year old? 2w
Dragon @tpixie I consider them adult - even though the main character is 11 then 12. The mystery is adult and there‘s a lot going on that Flavia misses but the adult reader doesn‘t. 🙏💚🐉 2w
tpixie @Dragon thanks!!! 2w
Centique I love Flavia and need to catch up on this series. I‘m up to number 4 I think? 2d

Staycation this week so I‘ve been spending a lot of time listening and reading on Libby. This mystery is in the middle of the series so there‘s a bit of catch-up. I did watch some of the tv series so I knew the basics. It also had some super natural elements that seemed out of place. I did like the voice actor reading the story.

Thanks to @GingerAntics ‘s review I borrowed this ebook from Libby this morning. A fun YA space adventure- 4 misfits in the wrong place at the wrong time have to save their butts and maybe everyone else‘s. Loved the diverse characters , a great book to read during Pride Month 🌈 . A stand-alone but it could easily be a series- fingers crossed 🤞

Brat: An '80s Story | Andrew McCarthy
post image
Pickpick

Just finished listening to this audiobook on Libby. I‘m not sure I would have enjoyed reading it as much as I did hearing Andrew tell his story. I think I he has spent a lot of time reflecting on that chaotic time and he‘s come to terms with the role alcohol played in his young adult life. In some ways he skims along the surface but that‘s his call - I think there‘s a lot more left unsaid about his personal relationships. Pick with reservations

Malibu Rising | Taylor Jenkins Reid
post image
Pickpick

This is the story of a Frank Sinatra like singer who abandons his wife and four kids. She‘s apparently too proud to ask for child support and raises them on the brink of poverty. Okay I did have to suspend my disbelief- but it‘s a story about a Malibu family and one particular party. It‘s probably not for everyone but I couldn‘t put it down.

Christyco125 I also couldn‘t stop reading this. The sibling relationships were just so fascinating. 3w
Dragon Totally agree @Christyco125 I really enjoyed the brothers and sisters- very different personalities but very definitely family 3w

Another mystery- the second in a series- I read the first book a few years ago. There‘s a mystery novel within a mystery novel. It‘s a fun trope and there‘s a nice homage to mystery authors like Agatha Christie ( a mention of The Labours of Hercules- made me smile) This is quite long but I had to listen at every opportunity.

Finished listening to this lovely audiobook. There‘s not a lot of adventure or angst in this #romantsy. There‘s some estranged family relationships and maybe a mild enemy to lover trope. But it‘s mostly an irresistible visit to a country estate culminating in the expected wedding. Just what I need right now. A respectable entry in the series but not my favourite.

Listening to this audiobook before going to work.

I spent most of today reading this book. A fairy tale set in an England at the beginning of the 20th century in a village still following the old ways. The nearby swamp is full of dangerous beings who steal hands and try to lure people to their deaths. The story begins with Briony‘s confession at her trial as a witch. I couldn‘t put it down because I had to know the ending. But it‘s a bit too much Brothers Grimm and not enough Disney

Great challenge @niftytiffd - which I actually completed ✅- this ebook is due tomorrow so had to finish it today. The second instalment of Katee Robert‘s Dark Olympus series is a spicy 🌶 hot 🥵 #romantsy . Eros and Psyche are the couple in this book - he‘s got a lot of mirrors and she‘s got a lot of style . My Greek mythology is based on Xena Warrior Princess so I am easy to please in that department. More my style than Neon Gods

I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery. I laughed and I cried- Molly the maid is so sincere and so naive. Most of the action takes place in a luxury hotel in an unnamed city. Maybe Toronto or New York. I lean towards Toronto. There‘s a murder and of course Molly finds the body - plot twists begin. A quick read that‘s almost a cozy with a narrator who sees things differently. 👍👍
