Little White Lies | Jennifer Lynn Barnes
post image
Pickpick

There‘s just something about a Jennifer Lynn Barnes book. They pull me in immediately. The Brothers Hawthorne & The Naturals series will be hard to beat on my favorites list but this was a solid read.

34 hours, 960 pages in print. This definitely qualifies as a chunkster for #chunksterchallenge2024. Book 7 in the Cormoran Strike series—my favorite to date. Disturbing book with Robyn going undercover in a cult ?? stressful! But absolutely loved the pacing. Great character development in this one too: Strike and his ½ siblings, Pat and her fam, Robyn and her fam. The tension btwn Robyn and Strike. Love it! Where‘s the next one! #serieslove2024

Librarybelle I have all of the books but need to get back to the series. It‘s been so long - I may have to start back at the beginning. Cormoran Strike is one of my favorite characters ever! 3mo
BarbaraBB Seems a great series. 3mo

julesG @Librarybelle Same here. I liked the series but stopped reading it because of the hullabaloo around JKR. 3mo
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 3mo
TheSpineView This was my favorite book in the series also. The ending had my jaw on the floor. So excited for the next book. 3mo
Read4life This is on my TBR & I still need ‘published by Hachette‘ for #52BookClub2024 Thanks! 3mo
Bluebird @Librarybelle and I think each book gives enough backstory that you won‘t feel lost if you read the next one. 3mo
Librarybelle Good to know! I think I‘m just looking for an excuse to read the first one all over again. 😂 3mo
Bluebird @julesG an author‘s politics and personal opinions can destroy what was otherwise good reading. I try to ignore all but their written books, but I know that sometimes it‘s too hard to separate the artist from the art. 😞 3mo
julesG I agree. I might come back to Strike one day. 3mo
Crazeedi I might have to look for this series! 3mo
Bluebird @librarybelle😂😂😂 don‘t let my comment stop you—love this series from the start.. 3mo
Bluebird @Crazeedi it‘s a great one. Wonderful writing, excellent characters and always interesting mysteries to solve. 3mo

The No-Show | Beth O'Leary

Wow! Definitely give this a chance. In the beginning I kept thinking this was out of character for O‘Leary. Such a likable character doing such unlikable things. But, O‘Leary weaves a wonderful (albeit sad) story and ultimately we get our HEA.
This is my one of my February #Roll100 rolled books.

Lady Susan | Jane Austen

I have these two editions one in English and one in Spanish. Do I need other editions? Nope. Am I going to buy other editions? Yes! Obviously😂I know I will re-read these books. I don‘t have time for re-reads but I will make a space...before I die😳🤣
I enjoy all these gossips about Susan. It was like been active in social media but through letters😂Scandals, discrimination, gossips, famous characters due to their lifestyles.⬇️

Gissy (Cont.)...In few pages you have a picture of the era,,you will know about character social status, social lifestyle etc. Amazing how the author summarized everything in few pages... writing about these topics as a woman at that time. There is always the question of with whom you will like to have a dinner, dead or alive. Austen will be in that list👌even though I didn‘t like Emma and it has been difficult to finish Pride and Prejudice😳🤷🏽‍♀️⬇️ 4mo
Gissy 3.5/3.8⭐️I enjoyed this one. I think there is a movie or tv adaptation?

Gissy @Chrissyreadit Hi! I picked it up yesterday because it was left in another place. They called me (from my complex to pick up the package) and I was going to post the photo today as soon as I finish with these late reviews.The box looks like it went through a war😂 but everything was safe. I hope everything is in there because the box also arrived open in various places. I don‘t know what happened during that delivery😳Mine should arrive next week. (edited) 4mo
Chrissyreadit oh no!!!! ok fingers crossed 4mo

First book in the trilogy of Ian Hamilton Mysteries. Set in 1881. I really enjoyed this historical mystery, a murder occurred and the body is found with an object, the murderer signature? It seems it is because other bodies are found with similar clue. This peculiar inspector, Ian Hamilton, will investigate these cases. Peculiar because his conversations/expressions are full of Shakespearean quotes. Love those parts.⬇️

Gissy (Cont.)...There are some funny parts, some murders are dark and there is a touch of family drama. I definitely will continue with this trilogy. 3.8⭐️
I received this book from @TK421 I haven‘t see a a Litsy post from him or his wife @Cobwebmoth in a long time. The swap was #StaycationInTime swap August 14, 2019,
