I earned a 20% - I don't usually remember a songs title or even artist, but I'll know the song when I hear it - so I think I knew more than my score reflects 😊

As for music in general (and some names I saw on the list) - any Fleetwood Mac, Queen, or Janet Jackson will make me smile 🎸

Make a great day everyone 😎

dabbe That's why I had to create a Spotify list; I'm horrible at song names! I probably scored 10 more just be giving a quick listen! Thanks for playing and sharing! 🤩🤩🤩 6d

Gamache is staying at a lodge for his anniversary, Peter and Clara are there for Peters family reunion. Peters sister is murdered, Gamache works to identify the suspect. Peter and his family are so toxic that at times I didn't want to keep going with the story - but I wanted to know who the murderer was and I like Gamache and his team so I finished. Overall a good read.

Lori befriends terminally ill Ms. Beacham and vows to find her brother Kenneth for her. The usual characters and a few new ones (each book continues with some of the new characters from the last one). This series is a light, feel good read for me. I forget the stories soon after I have read them, but remember the main characters and enjoy the story as I'm reading it!

Murder in the Family | Cara Hunter

Story is told as if you are watching a true crime show (reads like a script) - with emails/texts/newspaper reports and viewer comments thrown in - solving a 20 year old murder. Enjoyed the format - each “week“ ended on a cliffhanger so I had to read on. Enjoyed the twists and turns, and final episode! Overall a good read.

The Dinner | Herman Koch
post image
Pickpick

Two brothers and their wives (Babette/Serge, Claire/Paul) meet for dinner to discuss their sons . It is violent, disturbing and a dark look at human behavior/motives/nature v nurture. The story goes in an unpredictable direction (at least for me). Overall, it was well written and kept me turning the pages to see where it would lead.
First book for July #BookSpinBingo

Aunt Dimity: Snowbound | Nancy Atherton

As always, the timeline is out of whack, Lori jumps to conclusions, is attracted to a man she just met, and solves a mystery. As always, I enjoyed it. I like Lori's relationship with Aunt Dimity, her husband Bill and friend Emma. I enjoy the lighthearted mystery, the PG (almost G) version of a mystery. Overall, another good read with Lori and Aunt Dimity!

Thanks for the tag @dabbe -

Score - 29% - many of the movies I watched during this time didn't make this list, with that said my favorites from the list:
1) Joker (and in the same universe Suicide Squad)
2) Dead Pool (1 and 2),
3) all Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Jumanji and Jurassic Park movies!

I took a few liberties with choosing 3 😂

Make a great day everyone 🙂

Jane meets Eddie after his wife Bea (and her friend Blanche) die in an alleged boating accident. Jane, Eddie and Bea all have pasts they are hiding from others. Jane is the MC, but we also get Eddie and Bea's POVs - past and present. None of the characters are reliable, so there are many twists and the ending left some questions unanswered in a very good way. Overall a very good thriller.

Make a great day everyone 😊

Stevie is invited to England to visit her boyfriend David, she gets to take her friends (Vi, Janelle, and Nate) - while there she is asked to solve a murder mystery from 1995 involving the Nine (9 close university friends). As always I enjoyed the flashbacks to the night of the murder, and I enjoyed Stevie solving the crime. Overall a good last book to the series (or is it? it does end with just enough loose ties to suggest a continuation) –⬇️

bthegood Teenage angst galore, Stevie doubts her abilities and David breaks her heart, and as always adults trusting teens to solve a murder. 😄

I decided to clear my stacks - I have a record of read books on storygraph - I am starting over with my “to read“ choices. I realize in the past 4 years my tastes have changed and many of the books I thought might be interesting to read end up being DNF or I just don't pick up to begin with - so I plan to be more mindful of books I put on my TBR list 🙂

This felt good !! Make a great day everyone - 📚

I watched the movie years ago and loved it. This was one of the first books I added to my Litsy TBR 4 years ago - so glad I got to it!

Stevie Bell is asked to solve a murder that occurred at a camp in the 1970's. The ending was a bit “Scooby Doo“* (⬇️)- teenager solves the case, is allowed a big reveal, then Sheriff steps in to make the arrests. Still, the mystery was good, how the story was told was good (back and forth from 70s to present day), and I enjoy Stevie and her friends (Nate, Janelle, David). Overall, a good read.
4/5 #SeriesLove2024

Lori and her husband Bill (and Aunt Dimity) visit Derek's father at his families estate. There are threats to Derek's cousin, Lori is determined to get to the bottom of it. I cannot remember the details of all of the stories in this series, I forget them as soon as I finish the book. The characters stay with me though, and each time I read Aunt Dimity it is like visiting good friends.

The story did not grab me - Jaime is bored with his life (it seems), insecure about his relationship with Clare. They meet younger couple Kit and Melia and this injects some life into Jaime (and Clare) - then it starts to unravel. Kit goes missing, and question becomes if Jaime did it - or was he set up? ⬇️

I think these stories are perfect. Gamache and Beauvoir and Lacoste must solve another murder in Three pines. All the characters are there - Clara and Peter, Ruth, Myrna, Gabri and Olivier. The woman murdered, Madeleine, seems perfect, loved who would want to put out her star?? Gamache's past (the Arnot case) is still a problem. ⬇️

bthegood The murder is solved, part of the Arnot problem is solved, but Clara and Peter leave us with a cliffhanger - will Peter feel joy for Clara's artistic success? Overall, a very good read!

The Dutch House | Ann Patchett
post image
Pickpick

The story of siblings Danny and Maeve growing up in the Dutch House and the many people who came into their lives over the years. The story is told from Danny's POV. Patchett nails the way children interpret and understand the things that go on in families that no one explains to them, and how those interpretations and understandings change as children grow into adults. It is a beautiful story, beautifully written and narrated. ⬇️

bthegood Tom Hanks is perfect for the narration (not sure if it reading it would have same effect as listening to it). Overall - favorite of the year so far.

Korede's sister Ayoola's boyfriends keep dying. Korede starts to worry when Ayoola is attracted to Tade, a doctor Korede works with and likes. Korede shares all of her thoughts and secrets to a patient in a coma - who wakes up. Ayoola's incredible narcissism and Korede constantly getting dumped on by everyone in her life wore me out. The background on the sisters parents did help explain their relationship. ⬇️

bthegood Overall, a good story and I enjoyed how the story was told, the main characters just got on my nerves (except the guy in the coma) and it wasn't as witty or “fun“ as I thought it would be.

Adding another #SeriesLove2024 to my May reading - at times I do get my story lines crossed (so many quaint villages, close knit neighbors and mysterious deaths to keep track of 😉)

Make a great day everyone 🌞
