Read for #DiverseCozy & #Scarathlon over a bunch of readathons that I‘ll list in comment. This is a slightly different cozy where the MC is a 300+ year-old alchemist who moves to Portland, Oregon & finds here self involved in solving a murder & trying to reclaim a stolen book to reverse the aging spell for a reanimated gargoyle statue before he is frozen solid for hood. I enjoyed the PDX setting & the mystery overall. The 1st book in the series ⬇️

DebinHawaii …I liked it enough that I‘ll read more of it. #SeriesLove2023 With the #ScarathlonWordSearch & book & participation points, it got me 1631 points for Team #SpookyGhostClub 👻🖤👻 Read during these readathons: #RushAThon #Spookoween #ScarathlonAtoZ #31By31 #Falling4Books #FangtasticReadathon #20in4 #StretchathonGorScarathlon 4mo

#20in4. #SummerEndReadathon #RushAThon #SeriesLove2022

Finished tonight for #DiverseCozy The first book in a foodie cozy series, I liked it overall. The MC is a Cuban-American anthropologist & cook who has just moved back to a wealthy suburb in Miami with her husband & young son. When 2 murders happen & her best friend is the chief suspect, Miriam is on the case. I liked the MC but would have preferred it if she communicated better with her ⬇️

DebinHawaii … husband & others so there wouldn‘t be as must angst. Some tasty-looking recipes in back, I will likely try the second book coming out in November. (And this got an #ARC off my TBR stack too so yay!) 🥭 💛🥭 5mo

My September TBR is ambitious again so we‘ll see how it goes! 📚🤷🏻‍♀️📚

The top 2 rows are for challenges/readalongs so they should get read: #Pemberlittens #JaneAdjacent #SundayBuddyRead #BookedInTime #SheSaid #TitlesAndTunes #DiverseCozy #CozyFantasyFellowship + virtual foodie book club & Kindle Reading Challenge

Bottom right 3 are work leadership books & the rest are books I ‘ll try to get to—some are library e-book holds & #SeriesLove2023

TheSpineView Looks good! Good luck! 6mo

Some favorites were both the Klunes, Last Violent Call, Romantic Comedy, Hey Hun & Into the Planet & Lost Hours.

I also squeezed in 4 library holds that came in & a follow up from #AuldLangSpine

I enjoyed almost everything ⬇️

DebinHawaii … The only real clunkers were The Messy Lives of Book People & the kind of boring OD book for work. Favorites were Yellowface, Hijab Butch Blues, Yours Truly & Atomic Habits. (edited) 7mo

Finished during the #JubilantJuly #readathon & read for #DiverseCozy

This was a quick read with amusing short stories about a very smart & tricksy thief & con man in Paris in the early 1900s. I knew nothing about it going in, including that there‘s a Netflix series Lupin, based on the character. Enjoyable for mystery fans-there‘s even a story where he crosses paths with the great “Herlock Sholmes.” (I read the Kindle Unlimited edition pictured)

Andrew65 Looks a good read. 7mo
JamieArc We have used this in the past with my adult French students. And every semester when I ask what they are watching to improve their French, Lupin is a popular response. 7mo
DebinHawaii @JamieArc I may have to give the series a try although I am pretty sure nothing can improve my French! 😉🤣 7mo
