The Monster of Florence | Douglas Preston
post image
Pickpick

This was an interesting book. Douglas Preston went to Florence Italy to write a fictional crime novel & ended up getting mixed up with the real monster of Florence case. A case that was compared to London's Jack the Ripper & helped inspire Thomas Harris' Hannibal.

DGRachel I really enjoyed this book. So much so that when I accidentally left my copy on a plane (unfinished) I had to buy another (hardcover) copy so I could finish it. 😂 5mo

This is the 3rd book in the Temeraire series. I thoroughly enjoyed it. In this one Laurence and his company leave China & travel through the old Silk Road to Istanbul to pick up 3 dragon eggs for Great Britain 🐉

This is the second book in the Nevernight Trilogy & it was really good. In this one Mia decides her best way to get to Scaeva & Cardinal Duomo is to sell herself to become one of the gladiatii (think Roman gladiators) & then become the champion of the games 🖤

This book is nuts. Luxe and her boyfriend Nico are hired to take two girls to an exotic deserted and cursed Island. But two other people are already there and the party doesn't end well 🏝

I loved this book. It's alternative history told like a fairy tale. Three sisters who are witches use the suffraget movement to bring witchcraft back into the world 🪶

Despite this typically being my least favorite genre, I really enjoyed it. Emily moves in with her sister after, her sister has a car accident to help take care of her and her niece. Then to make her niece happy she agrees to join a Renaissance Fair for the summer. Love and chaos ensues also hot guys dressed as pirates or in kilts 💚

I really enjoyed this book. It wasn't too stereotypical for a cozy mystery and I really enjoyed the authors group meetings.

Oh bother. I was sure this was out at the end of April, but apparently I‘m not to review it until the end of June. Will try again then! ARCs confuse me!

Brief version- it‘s a pick, gave me lots to think about.

Cathythoughts Brief version sounds good ! You‘re ahead of schedule 👍🏻✨ 2y
rockpools Double bother. This was my #NonFictionOnADiversityRelatedTopic for #BBRC #GrowUp. Can I count it, even with a month-late review? @LibrarianRyan @Sarahreadstoomuch (I think they changed the pubn date - it‘s not like me to be early for anything!) 2y
LibrarianRyan Yes you can! 2y
rockpools @LibrarianRyan Thank you 😊. I AM going to finish this challenge - honest! 2y
LibrarianRyan @rockpools yeah. I don‘t think I am. I‘m close but... I‘m working on the next one already. 2y

This is definitely not something I would normally read but since it is the #TeamBuddyRead for #ReadNosedReindeer and my #DoubleSpin book I read it. It was okay, a tad predictable. I did like the fact that the audiobook was read by the author and it was under 6hrs.

Warlight: A novel | Michael Ondaatje

Mehso-so

Finally finished this book club book... it felt like it took years, but really only 5 days. It‘s not a terribly exciting story, but it is beautifully written and the audio narration is spot on. This atmospheric mystery/coming of age take is told by Nathaniel, figuring out his childhood, his mother who was some sort of secret agent during and after WWII, and what events shape us and how.

TheAromaofBooks Great progress! Although it's never a good sign when it feels like you've been reading a book forever! 2y
LibrarianRyan yeahhh 2y
