A small birthday book haul so far. I've been joking I need 30, one for each year, but... I don't think we'll get there!
Not good at book photography yet
I adored the first in the series but now I'm struggling with the second because it's getting bogged down in waaaaay too much unnecessary detail 😕
[#BookReview] The Case For Jamie by Brittany Cavallaro. This is the third book in the four part Charlotte Holmes series. It is my favorite up to this point so far and I am so excited to pick up the fourth book! I am impatiently waiting for my borrowed copy to arrive at my library. I‘m in love with this series! 📖🔎
Maybe my expectations were too high going in to this one, but I didn't really enjoy it at all. I didn't connect with the characters. I didn't understand their thoughts or reactions, or how the relationships between them were built and changed. I also felt like there were some really serious topics (murder, rape, drug use, self harm, trauma) that were flippantly dealt with. I'm gonna give the rest of the series a miss.
As good as the 1st? Maybe not but still good. I liked the complexity of the relationships- especially between Watson and Holmes. But every relationship was complicated and different from one another which is more true to life.
Of course an unexpected ending, Holmes-style.
