#1920s-#London-glitz-glamour-#foxtrot-#Charleston-#JazzAge-#flappers. Wow! What an #exceptionalbook! I enjoyed this book immensely and it was simply #unputdownable! Flawless writing, great plot, and amazing characters.

If you like #DowntonAbbey and #MrSelfridge, you would enjoy this book. #bookworm #booknerd #bibliophage #bookart #bookphotography #bookphotos #yycreads #calgaryreads #readforlife #read150 #calgarylibrary

This is a collection of 11 #horror/#paranormal #shortstories, which explores issues like family relationships, mother-daughter relationship, grandparents-grandchildren relationship, #marriage, etc. I genuinely enjoyed only two stories in this book. Others were boring and confusing which I don't quite follow.

I started this book with a #skeptical mindset but I stand corrected after I finished it. Who would have thought that a #formerNBA superstar could write?! I enjoyed this book right from beginning; it was such an #engaging and #unputdownable book!

IamIamIam I read an article a few months ago about this book. Jabbar said he would have been a writer years ago if basketball hadn't gotten in the way!! 😂 2y
thereadingowlvina @IamIamIam Ha, that's too funny! But he sure has a flair for writing! I still can't believe how good this book was 😄 2y

My first #tommyandtuppence #mystery by #agathachristie. A pretty okay read; it's a short story to introduce new characters. Tuppence figured out that the best way to advertise their new #detectiveagency is by solving a mystery. #bookart #bookphotos #bookphotography #yycreads #calgaryreads #canadareads #read150 #readingisfun #bookworm #readinglife #readingchallenge #kobo #ereader #ereading #passionforreading #obsessedwithreading #calgarylibrary

It's #agathachristie week for me! 😁 This brief #murdermystery is about the investigation of #herculepoirot on the mysterious death of a French politician, in which the only clue was a box of chocolates. #goodread #bookart #bookphotos #bookphotography #readingisfun #read150 #calgaryreads #yycreads #canadareads #readinglife #bookworm #kobo #ereader #ereading #readanythingandeverything #readforlife #passionforreading #quickread #calgarylibrary

A #historicalfiction set in the #17thcentury #England, where Lucy Campion (#chambermaid for a local magistrate) is trying to uncover the truth of her friend's murder. Though it's a light #murdermystery, I enjoy the story so far. #currentread #bookart #bookphotos #bookphotography #calgaryreads #canadareads #read150 #readanythingandeverything #multiplebookreading #passionforreading #readinglife #alwaysbereading #susannacalkins #calgarylibrary

A beautifully written #historicalfiction set in a time and culture where a woman's worth and status is measured by her #fertility. #Love, #betrayal, #sacrifice and #jealousy are some of the themes explored throughout this book. An #engaging #goodread from beginning to end. #parnazforoutan #bookart #bookphotos #bookphotography #yycreads #calgaryreads #readforlife #read150 #multiplebookreading #passionforreading #asia #bookworm #calgarylibrary

The Haunting of Maddy Clare | Simone St. James

This is a #hauntingtale of an angry #ghost set in the #1920s #England. Sarah Piper was sent by her agency to assist #ghosthunter Alistair Gellis to investigate the haunting of the 19 years old #servant Maddy Clare. Not my usual #genre, just being #adventurous in my #readinglife to avoid #readingslump. A #goodread and an #engagingread. #booknerdigan #bookworm #read150 #yycreads #bookart #bookphotos #bookphotography #fall #paranormal #simonestjames
