Fast paced and entertaining brain candy! Book #3 in the Stillhouse Lake series. If you're looking for believable characters or situations, this isn't for you. But if you're looking for entertainment and page-turning action, this is her best yet. 3/5 stars #series #crime #braincandy

Finished before work yesterday. Her books are pretty short, lots of witty banter, insta love, sexy fun times and usually some manner of danger and suspense. I always wish they were longer but she tends to put them out fairly quickly and lots of characters crossover throughout her many series. #braincandy

Utter fluff! 🧠🍭 Ridiculous, OTT and I kinda mean that as a compliment!
Think snapchat/email-chain epistolary, if the ‘Vanderpump Rules‘ ladies were all A-types, lived in NYC, considered GOOP their Bible and planned a wedding for their Bridezilla bestie!
I could only take this satire in small doses, but when I picked it up, it never failed to make me laugh. Oh the cluelessness! 🤦‍♀️

The Sweet Dead Life | Joy Preble

Book: The Sweet Dead Life is part of a duology by Joy Preble. I've never read it and I've read plenty of books with angels in them or angels in the title so no idea why this was the first to come to mind!
Movie: City of Angels
Song: Angel by Sarah MacLachlan

Bride of the Mist | Christina Skye

I recently learned my first favorite romance author, Christina Skye, died last year. Breast cancer. I‘m heartbroken. So, to mend a broken heart, I reread a favorite romance!

Strong characters butting heads as attraction builds, all while danger grows around them. Draycott Abbey‘s resident ghosts make brief appearances, and true love wins. 4/5⭐️

I believe this is the third Draycott novel, does not require familiarity with the series but it helps.

The Hidden Staircase | Carolyn Keene

Pickpick

In the midst of all of my buddy reads, a part of my brain was like, "What's that Nancy Drew book where she runs up & down a staircase to figure out which steps don't creak?" ? I had to read it again immediately despite having read it probably 52 times when I was young. Pure nostalgia #braincandy. Nancy knows how to get an owl out of a room! Hannah cooks a 4 course meal no matter what the hell goes down! The bad guys are always scowling! Love it.

Cathythoughts That‘s funny ! That book I read recently... The Hours Before Dawn ... there was a part about how to put your foot completely flat on the the step of the stair that creaks ! No sound then ! We have one creaking step on our stairs !! It works ... flat foot , no bending the foot & it really doesn‘t creak 👍🏻♥️😂 (edited) 3mo
gradcat I loved, loved, loved Nancy Drew!! Did you ever play any of the Nancy Drew adventure games? I used to play those on my computer—they were really fun! 3mo
RealLifeReading Fun! I realize though that I never really read much Nancy Drew when I was young. How odd 3mo

saresmoore 👏😂 Best review! 3mo
erzascarletbookgasm 😆 I haven‘t revisited Nancy Drew in my adult life! 🤔 And I learnt something today @Cathythoughts 😁👍 3mo
batsy @Cathythoughts Oh, that's a great tip 😁 Nancy's one is to hug the walls when using the stairs. Or do a weird staircase arithmetic by jumping from one not-creaky spot to another 😂 3mo
batsy @gradcat No, I didn't! I feel like I missed out 😆 3mo
batsy @RealLifeReading I read too much of it 🙈 Absolutely fun to read as an adult when you want that nostalgia comfort read without having to work your brain at all, @erzascarletbookgasm 😁 3mo
rubyslippersreads @RealLifeReading I never read much Nancy Drew as a child either, but found a lovely set of reproduction vintage editions at a thrift shop, so I can catch up. 😊 3mo
Tanisha_A That review! 🤣👌 3mo
Leftcoastzen Especially love this cover! 3mo
LeahBergen And now I feel like revisiting Nancy, too. 😆😆 3mo
Reggie Thanks for making me laugh this morning. 😂 3mo
rohit-sawant Love this post! 😂 I haven't read Nancy Drew yet. Need to change that soon! 3mo
JazzFeathers Oh l love that 1920s looking Nancy Drew cover. But, are Nancy's stories really that old? 3mo
readordierachel 😆😆 3mo
batsy @Leftcoastzen Isn't if fabulous. @JazzFeathers I believe the first book came out in 1930, and this is one of the early ones. 3mo
batsy @LeahBergen Haha! My job here is done 😁 @rohit-sawant When you're in the mood for something silly and formulaic, it's great fun 😆 3mo
gradcat @batsy I believe you‘ve turned loads of folks into Nancy Drew fans—marvelous! 3mo
BiblioLitten Roald Dahl does this to me. Or Famous Five. Even Goosebumps (the mummy series) #braincandy 😍♥️ 3mo

A gripping and thoroughly enjoyable tale of deceit, avarice and murder in the art world. The main character, Judith, cuts a trail through Europe allowing no one to get in her way as she pursues her ambition to become a rich art dealer. Sexy, sassy and highly entertaining with a sprinkling of cheese that can be forgiven. Think 50 Shades meets The Da Vinci Code. Warning - the sex scenes are very descriptive and there are more than a few c-bombs. 4⭐️

When Life Gives You Lululemons | Lauren Weisberger

This is the perfect, salacious chick-lit novel when you need a mindless, funny read. There are laugh-out-loud, as well as plenty of omigod moments.

There are also plenty of vapid characters, but it's on brand with the image Weisberger tries to create.

Cinfhen This book was a perfect mid winter pick me up!!! #BrainCandy 🍭🍬🍭🍬 5mo
Cinfhen Still waiting for your tree😁❤️ 5mo
Kaylamburson Right? Brain Candy is the perfect phrase. And I know! I'll have to come up with a good tree post tonight!! 🎄@cinfhen 5mo

The Best of Me | Nicholas Sparks

I read this for #booked2018 #beachread. (Yes I am very far behind, yay work) I tend to read Nicholas Sparks a lot in the summer since they are easy, if not somewhat predictable reads. Once again I enjoyed his book. I did figure one thing out at the end, but it wasn't as predictable as I expected.

Cinfhen A beach read in December is perfect, even if you aren‘t at the beach 😉I just read a really “light”book and it was so much fun 5mo
MoMogrl @Cinfhen that book sounds so fun. I just stacked it. 5mo
Cinfhen Yay!!! I read it in a day....total #braincandy 🍬🍭🍬🍭🍬 5mo
