This one was a page turner. I have enjoyed other books in this series more but this one was entertaining.
This one was a slow start but picked up toward the middle. Not my favourite of the series.
This book was a "meh" for me. The title is "The Explosive Inside Story of The View," however, I did not find there to be anything explosive about it. If anything, the author took great pains not.to step on toes.
1. Cards Against Humanity (adult), Monolpoy Junior (with my little).

@ulrichyumiodd - thank you for the AMAZING package. You spoiled me! I love all of it. I have never had a book cover and the mummy one is adorable. The books sound awesome and to have matching halloween bookmarks is fabulous! The owl candle will be up year round - its lovely!
Thank you @MaleficentBookDragon for hosting this swap!
Today is my big 4-0! Hoping to sneak in a nap and some dedicated reading time ♡
This book! This is my first foray into a fairytale retelling. I picked it up after the host of my fav podcast (currently reading) gushed about it. What a book! I LOVED it. Fantastic characters, a gripping story and lots of adventure. I would highly recommend and I cannot wait to see how the adventure continues.
I have been in a bit of a reading funk since finishing my latest Louise Penney book. But did this book get me out of the slump! Page turning! The characters and the mystery were excellent! I look forward to the next book, which comes out in January. Solid 4.5 stars.
I am enjoying this series so much! The town of Three Pines and its inhabitants are so interesting! I enjoy the mix of "whodunit" along with tidbits of history, poetry and even cooking. I cannot wait to read the next book!
Although not my favourite Louise Penney book (which is the second book in the series), the mystery in this one was really interesting! I did not know how the murder was accomplished until it was revealed at the end. The last 10 pages.of the book really hit home - I loved the message. Although these books are works of fiction, the characters are so real and I love the snippets of wisdom that the books contain.
I now understand why Louise Penny has such a legion of followers. I have adored books two and three in this series. The atmosphere is fantastic, the people are real, relatable and deep, the mysteries are good and the books are enjoyable to read - not bogged in details. I cannot wait to devour the next one!
I read a Louise Penny book that takes place much later in the series and then realized that this is a series that needs to be read from the beginning. Although I thought book one was good - I loved book two! Three Pines and its cast of characters really came alive for me. I cannot wait to start the next book.
I am torn about this book. I enjoyed the characters and the mystery but found it to be very graphically violent at times. Graphic violence is not my jam. I think that I will try one more book in the series to see if the graphic violence is a pattern or was related to just this story.
Still unsure how I feel about this book. It was non stop action and had some creepy elements which kept me on the edge of my seat. I did not always like the main character but I did like the real way she portrayed women's friendships. Would be a great beach or airplane read.
This is an excellent book! I took a break about half way through as this book is intense. So glad I picked it back up as the second half is awesome. I really enjoyed the characters and look forward to reading the next book in the series.
Interesting book. I enjoyed the format - part podcast part told from the main character. Very well written story. The ending left me wanting as I like things wrapped up with a neat bow - and this story does not end this way. I am glad that I heard about this book on currently reading podcast and checked it out.
Book: Animal Talk by Joyce Grant Smith. Cute book. A collection of stories regarding animals who have done wonderful things. Quick a nod comforting read.
First bit of the book was hard to follow as it dealt with 3 different, unrelated families. Once the book got going it was excellent and hard to put down.
I really like the premise of this series (mobile vet) and I really like the cast of supporting characters. A good "whodunit." I had a hard time liking the main character during some points as she is very self-centered. That being said, I will check out the next book in the series.
