The news that Timothy Olyphant is coming back to play Raylan Givens is the best news of 2022 so far. So obviously, I‘m devouring the source material so that I‘m ready for the new adaptation of “City Primeval.” Also, reading Elmore Leonard‘s work just gives me joy regardless. It‘s already a very Mondayish Monday, so I‘m extra-glad to have it. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #cityprimeval #goldcoast #themoonshinewar #omnibus #elmoreleonard

The Appeal | JANICE. HALLETT

Pickpick

The Appeal is a murder mystery told through a series of emails, text messages and memos.

The format threw me off at first, but once I got used to it, I could not put the book down. If you are looking for a stellar mystery with an amusing and large cast of characters; the Appeal certainly fits the bill.

Thanks to NetGalley and Atria Books for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Breanne1 I‘ve been on the fence with this book and you have helped tip the scale 😁 16h
wallacereads @Breanne1 - glad to hear! It is a bit hard to follow at first but once you get into the rhythm of the story; it is a fun ride! 15h

Cruel and Unusual: Scarpetta 4 | Patricia Cornwell

Pretending to read/zoning out in my nook. Lucy is very curious about Audrey 2. I‘m not very far into this book but like, I‘m very confused about the character development. They aged up a character & killed a potential love interest off screen. Patricia we need more than the science! What are we doing?

#WeeklyForecast

I might finish Darkest Day today. It‘s a great read ..mad family dynamics , 2 missing people, and the detectives go for their after work pint in The Elk on a Swedish sounding road ( love all the Swedish vibes and snow ) well written easy read.

Hope to start Love Songs on audible , morning walks.

Then maybe Uncle Paul , I feel a need for more dark/ thriller writing. I may have a book hangover after Darkest Day

Happy reading ❤️

TrishB I am very tempted by Love Songs, not brought it yet. 2d
Cathythoughts @TrishB Yes, I‘m looking forward to it ❤️ 2d
Tamra Love Songs definitely TBR! I‘m afraid if I borrowed the audio from the library I wouldn‘t get through it by the due date. 😅 2d

Cinfhen Love songs was GREAT but it took awhile to get into the story. Audio was tough at start because I was wanting a family tree. Which the book didn‘t provide but it did have a cast of characters page ( pages actually) I may have loaned the book but if I have it I‘m happy to send you the list, Cathy!! 2d
LeahBergen It all looks lovely. Enjoy! 1d
Cathythoughts @Cinfhen Thanks so much Cindy that‘s very nice of your, but I‘ll see how I get on with it...I probably won‘t get to start it till Wednesday ... I‘ll keep you posted. ... but really no need to send the list, but I do Thankyou for thinking of me 😘 (edited) 21h

I thoroughly enjoyed this cosy mystery. The first half was super engaging, I couldn‘t wait to get back to it. Told through emails, it was fun to try to guess what was going on behind the scenes & she observes brilliantly the personalities in a theatre group & different tones people adopt in emails. She creates suspense: Is Issy a clingy friend or something more sinister? Fun (too many?) characters. The legal side was unrealistic but a fun read.

janeycanuck Ooh, I could go for an unrealistic but fun read 😊 2d
Abailliekaras @janeycanuck this will hit the spot then! 1d

Destroy All Monsters was another graphic novel on NPR‘s Best Book list. The library didn‘t have that one, but we did have these! They look very 70‘s, crime, noir, B movie so I‘m gonna check them out 🪓

I was 15 years old when JonBenet Ramsey was murdered and I was in the grips of the case like much of the nation. This accounting of the early days of the case was rushed to publication within one year of the crime and it shows. Grammatical errors abound, and it focuses more on the media‘s coverage of the case rather than the investigation itself. Sadly, the mistakes made in the beginning of this case will likely keep it unsolved forever. 2⭐️
