Truly Devious: A Mystery | Maureen Johnson

I loved all the elements that came together in this book! True crime, historical mysteries, a boarding school....all catnip for this reader. I can't WAIT for the second book to come out!

Cinfhen True crime??? Im intrigued...second book??? 11mo
ferskner @TiredLibrarian It's creepy and fun in just the right ways! @Cinfhen Yes! It's the first of a trilogy, so there's time to really develop the layers of story. 11mo
Cinfhen Oooohhh!! Adding this to my 2019 TBR 11mo

Tell Her No Lies | Kelly Irvin

Despite having a preeeeeeety cover, I could not care less about anything in the first 63 pages before I quit. After the murder in the first chapter, nothing happens. Nothing at all. It's so boring! Also, I was expecting psychological suspense but it's actually Christian romantic suspense. I'm fine with that, but something has to happen!!!

Oh my gosh, this book...haunting, heartbreaking, gorgeous. Jojo's story hurt my heart. He had so much stacked against him at such a young age. I loved the use of ghosts and magical realism (which I usually hate). A book not easily forgotten.

Oh my gosh, I LOVED this. I started out thinking it would be dumb (Harley Quin? Come on.), but I found each story lovely, and even teared up at the end (and rewound it about five times, thanks to Hugh Fraser's affecting narration). A totally pleasant surprise.

DGRachel Hugh Fraser is a terrific narrator of the Agatha Christie novels! I‘m always disappointed when one is not narrated by him. 1y
batsy I loved this too! 💜 It was surprising in the most delightful way. 1y
ferskner @DGRachel I agree! The other narrators haven't been bad, they just aren't as good as he is. @batsy I think we always agree on these Christies! ♥️ 1y

Snowblind: A Thriller | Ragnar Jonasson

I didn't love the MC, but boy did I love the cold chill of the setting! A snowed-in claustrophobic small town in northern Iceland is the best setting for secrets and murder.

I wish my copy had had this cover! I can't get over how awesome it is. Tommy and Tuppence bring more of their 1920s realness and I like it.

Meddling Kids | Edgar Cantero

I got NOWHERE on my #ermadlibs challenge. I suck at challenges where I have to read specific books. I did start Meddling Kids. I will go back to this book. I was enjoying it, it was just timing. I also started Monstrous, but read less than 50 pages. Maybe later. I also read the first 5 pages of queen of hearts. It's still in my backpack from book expo. Ughhh

2BR02B I also started Meddling Kids and set it aside. It wasn't quite as fast-paced as I was expecting. 1y
LibrarianRyan @2BR02B that I agree with. I was enjoying it it was just slow. 1y

Check out our podcast episode titles to see which books are eligible and email us at eclecticreadersbookclub@gmail.com with your choice and shipping info! #ERMadLibs

monkeygirlsmama Omg, I won?! Thank you so much. 😍 1y
monkeygirlsmama How do I know which titles are eligible to select from? Rather which podcast episodes should I be looking at to find out? Sorry! My brain isn‘t running all on cylinders right now since it‘s 12:35am and I might be making this far more confusing than it really is. 😜 1y
EclecticReaders @monkeygirlsmama if you go to our website (link in our bio) each podcast episode (that isn‘t an author interview) has a book title listed, so you‘ve got 41 different books to choose from 😃 1y
