Hard to believe this is #14 in the Bakeshop Mystery series. This one centers around Jules & the Torte team doing the food & chocolate sculpture for the local art museum (SOMA) in Ashland‘s the reveal of Shakespeare‘s Lost Pages: Double Falsehood. The rare piece goes missing at the gala, murder follows & Jules is on the case. I enjoy this series & the characters & the Shakespeare details along with the delicious food & pastry make for a fun read.

I am enthralled with this series. There is only one more book to read (#13) then I have to wait until June for the next one. So here's my problem, do read the next one now or wait until right before #14 comes out to read it?🤔

BTW, 4 stars for this one!

This month being cold (whitecourt is #14 on the coldest places in the world today at a balmy -37 C but easily feels like -45 with the wind) I've managed to get some reading in. Reviews in comments but I'm pretty pleased with my progress this month 🥰

jessjess Namesake by Adrienne Young is the sequel to Fable, and honestly I am loving this duo of pirates, gem sages and intrigues. Definitely in my top 10 for 2021 list! 4w
jessjess The Folk of the Air Trilogy by Holly Black (Cruel Prince, Wicked King and Queen of Nothing) was a series I'd had on hold for what felt like FOREVER at the library and was it worth it? Meh. There was *so much* while reading that made me go wtf?!? during various plot points. Like Madoc. Redcap kills your family and leads a rebellion against you and you LET HIM LIVE URGH 😫 4w
jessjess Finally after watching the first season on Amazon Prime I read A Discovery of Witches and I really liked it, it is better than the TV (they usually are) and I look forward to the next in this trilogy. 4w

Read this to my class today and they loved it. ❤ Now I know where the famous Charlie Brown tree comes from.

Cinfhen I like that your mixing lots of genres 😁💕📚 2mo
DGRachel @Cinfhen I don‘t think I could fill all the prompts with just one or even just my favorite genres, but I did try to pick ones that I thought I had a reasonable chance of enjoying. 🤓 2mo
Cinfhen I just read so “vanilla”, it‘s either literary fiction of NF/ memoir - I don‘t mix it up much 2mo

DGRachel @Cinfhen The two you read most are the two I avoid like the plague. I‘ll do memoir via audiobook but otherwise, no thank you. 🤣🤣🤣 2mo

This is #13 in this series and, yet again, Elly Griffiths does not disappoint. The mystery was engaging as is always the case with Ruth Galloway and company. The fact that I figured out who the killer was way before the end wasn‘t even disappointing because it‘s the relationships between the recurring characters that makes this series compelling and a must read every time. Looking forward to #14, especially after reading the last page! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Book #14 of the year: “The Obelisk Gate” by N.K. Jemisin

This is the second in a trilogy (and I‘m actually reading it in order for once). The first one was intriguing but this one…it‘s been a long time since I‘ve stayed up until nearly 2 to finish a book. I tried to stop a few times but couldn‘t. If you‘re looking for incredible sci-fi/fantasy, here you go!

SamAnne Have read the first one and can‘t wait to get to this one. 5mo
Creme_de_la_them @SamAnne I liked the 2nd one so much more! 5mo
