My library got the e-books of the Shady Hollow cozy mystery series in finally so I‘m working through them. They are fun cozies told from animal POVs & I find they just work if you can picture the friendships & relationships between the different animal characters. I really like Vera our fox reporter/detective & the small town vibe. This one centers on the disappearance of popular coffee⬇️

DebinHawaii … shop owner Joe‘s wife (moose) a decade+ before when bones are found in the orchard. Vera is on the case while also reporting on an elegant silver mink opening an etiquette teaching business in Shady Hollow. A quick read & good fun, start with the first book: 2w

A dystopian thriller set in a future where the U.S. is near total collapse, and most of the population is addicted to a drug called Flashback.
The tone of this story was heavy. It took a bit to get through. It was well written. The murder investigation conducted by the MC, Nick Bottom-ex detective and flashback addict-kept me going to the end.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

#ReadAway2024 #AwesomeApril #readathon

Finished this Tuesday, my 3rd book for #Roll100 April, roll#6
It‘s my second book from Alderman & while I didn‘t like it as much as The Power, it was thought-provoking & interesting & I thought the twists the story took were well done. The survivalists‘ posts & comments I found distracting & while they were meant to help tell the story & give context to what was going on, they didn‘t add much. A soft pick.

Andrew65 Doing great 👏👏👏 3w

#ReadAway2024 #AwesomeApril #readathon

Finished the last chapters on the plane yesterday but as I was 3/4 done, I‘m counting it as an April book. This was on my #AuldLangSpine list from @Itchyfeetreader (I‘m trying for one per month) & while I didn‘t love it as much as the others I‘ve read from the list, it gets a pick. The writing is gorgeous but pensive, even a little depressing & I found myself wanting to shake both MCs, a pair of somewhat ⬇️

DebinHawaii …star-crossed lovers who just can‘t get on the same page at the same time & as much time as they spend talking, don‘t communicate all that well. Since I have never found a true romantic soulmate, this probably bugged me more than it might others . Despite it all, it was still worth the read for the quality of the writing & a soft pick. 3w

‘What is she really—human or beast? Which tastes sweeter—blood or chocolate?‘

I read this once a while back after seeing the movie. I remember being disappointed because it was nothing like the film. It‘s been a while so I couldn‘t remember it too well. I really enjoyed this reread of it. I wouldn‘t mind checking out the author‘s other books.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Finished in April but I‘m behind in posting. Book 6 in the Lady Sherlock series. One to go before the new one in June. I liked this one overall, the mystery was intriguing & the setting of a cult sanctuary & I love the sexy sassiness of relationship of Holmes & Ash but things were a bit disjointed & it will be interesting to see how things pick up or change for Holmes in the next one. So ⬇️

DebinHawaii …maybe a slightly softer pick than the last one. Still I enjoy the series. I listened to this one on audio as it came in quicker through library hold. I think the next one is only available in e-book. 3w

Finished yesterday for #SeasonalCozies I am afraid this just wasn‘t a good book. It‘s a risk I take when I go for first in series, cheap or free (this was a Kindle Unlimited title) but it‘s disappointing nonetheless. I went between wanting to shake & throat punch the MC who was kind of an idiot. Then there was the dialogue which was not even close to natural. I highlighted a part where the⬇️

DebinHawaii … the male love interest needlessly mansplained dry ice to the MC but then I returned the book without writing it down. Just bad. I won‘t be reading the next one. There‘s better gardening cozies out there!
