I would love to hang out with Kinsey Millhone in Santa Barbara and run around solving crimes and being bad ash women. #SundayFunday

I have almost all of the series either in my Kindle or on my bookshelves. Eleven of them are in paperback format.

I like this series more and more as I go! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Hooked_on_books This is one of the series my mom introduced me to as a teen. I read what was available at the time, then each book as it came out. I was so devastated when she died. 😢 2y
TamTracy @Hooked_on_books yeah she wasn‘t able to finish z right? 2y
Hooked_on_books She never even started it. 😔 So the alphabet ends in Y. 2y

Still showing some dated perspectives, but also still enjoying re-reading this series. This is the one where Kinsey meets Dietz and I always wondered why Grafton didn‘t do more with him, in spite of the chemistry between them, for the rest of the series. (I think Kinsey sees him only a couple times again throughout the series).

And you get to see my current puzzle 🧩!

This is the first print book I‘ve ever read completely on my phone!

I enjoyed this more than F is for Fugitive - it was super-fast paced from the get-go and didn‘t let up. This was my second book finished for the #litsypartyofone and the #24b4monday in celebration of #mrbook1inamillion. I‘m at 8 1/2 hours already!

Andrew65 I need to read more of these. Only read A. 3y

#KinseyaWeek Book 7

Solid 3 ⭐️ another good addition to the series.

Love the way Kinsey has to go to the library and use microfiche to research historic earthquakes. So glad I live in the internet age.

I can always count on Kinsey for an entertaining mystery. This one has two stories going at once; she‘s hired to find a missing mother and someone has been hired to kill her.

Tonight's tea is Caramel Shortbread from Davids Tea. It is a new favorite, very smooth. And perfect for this cold winter night. I usually like reading series books in order, but I need to read a "shoe" book for book club. So starting with G. This is my first Grafton.

Another fun mystery, although I found I was more intrigued by the case of a woman's missing vagabond mother rather than the hitman out to kill Kinsey. I would have liked to see the story about Irene and Agnes fleshed out more. Always great for filler and it's been a while since I visited with Kinsey!

Getting back to Grafton because I was supposed to have 14 elves done for my friend for Christmas. I was so disappointed in myself that I hadn't been working harder and she told me not to self-flog. I promised not to but I feel terrible so I'm going to bust them out as quickly as I can! It may not be before Christmas but it will be sooner rather than later! I'm also waiting on 4 holds from the library so Grafton is a good bet!

Loved this one in the series. Two stories in one plus Kinsey gets some lovin this time around and not from the married cop. It was definitely a page turner and was surprised with what happened with Irene's family looking forward to H

#CrimesAgainstCovers

Day Three: How Have You Tried to Save a Wrecked Book?

My old neighbor (who was notoriously terrible with books) was selling some of her books. I *almost* didn‘t take this one because of the severe water damage, but I had to rescue it. I tried putting it under a huge stack of VERY heavy books. It helped, believe it or not, but it‘s still pretty bad.

ErinSueMreads Oh man!!!! Did they say how it got so wet? Do you really want to know? 😂😂 4y
AshleyHoss820 @ErinSueG That girl. She said she dropped this one in the bath. But her poor books! 🤣😂 They were all left outside, dropped in the bath, bent backwards...🙄🙄🙄 4y

No one should be shocked by my rating - I love this series. I did note, though, that by reading it out of order (not by choice), I can really see a difference between the older books and newer books. Not a bad difference per se; just, you can see how Sue Grafton started developing the story lines. I think I may prefer those from the first half of the alphabet, though I will obviously read every book in this series.

I could not sleep last night so jumped back into the Kinsey Millhone series. I ended up finishing it and although I don‘t find the books to be stellar I do enjoy the breeziness of the series. #25infive

Mehso-so

⭐️⭐️⭐️/5. My least favorite so far, because I felt the story built up this huge THING that ended up being resolved in a handful of sentences. Premise was good, but I was ultimately disappointed by the ending. I wanted to know a lot more than the answers that were given.
