Enjoyed this one. There were times while reading that I was sure about what happened and of course I ended up being wrong. I love when books leave me stumped until the end. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 #bookfitnesschallenge #bfc #bfcr2 @wanderinglynn

This was my first cozy mystery and I actually enjoyed it. There were a few eye roll moments when they‘d yell “holy cobbler!” or some other ridiculous fake curse word but all-in-all, it was a good mystery. I‘ve already added the second book to my TBR list. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 #bookfitnesschallenge #bfc #bfcr2 @wanderinglynn

Edited to add: the whole time I was reading this, I wanted some cherry pie 🍒🥧 😆

ShyBookOwl I only discovered cozy mysteries earlier this year and they surprisingly stole a little piece of my heart lol my first was 1w
Airykah13 @ShyBookOwl Lol, I‘ve always rolled my eyes at the titles but never tried actually reading one. I want to read more now! I‘ll have to check out the one you tagged. 1w
wanderinglynn The fun of cozy mysteries are the punny titles & punny fun phrases, like “holy cobbler!” I like them because they‘re light, fun reads that don‘t take s lot of brain power. 😉 1w

What the hell did I just read? The only reason I‘m giving it 3 stars (more like 2.5) is because it finally began to hold my attention after the halfway point and I wanted to find out how it ended. Most of the story was confusing since the main character kept switching bodies and repeating days. The beginning was slow and boring and the narrator for the audiobook spoke way too slowly. I was able to speed it up, otherwise I would have bailed. 🌟🌟🌟

marleed I‘m afraid to dive into this one! 4w
Airykah13 @marleed lol, try it out and see how you feel after several chapters. I just wasn‘t a fan of the Groundhog Day type story (edited) 4w

Ok, I didn‘t ditch it and I sped up the audio to 1.25 and it‘s been tolerable. I still don‘t love the story but at least it‘s more interesting now. I‘m 62% finished and I‘m hoping to finish the rest tonight so I can add to my total for #bookfitnesschallenge

I really wanted to love this book but in the end it was just ok. I tired quickly of the endless similes and metaphors and didn't feel there was much depth to the story. I understand the need to make your writing flow and sound beautiful but the numerous literary devices were too much and at times I found myself rolling my eyes. As far as the romance, it fell flat. I know many will love this book but it just wasn't for me. 🌟🌟

Airykah13 @KristenDuck to be fair, I think it‘s because I‘m currently listening to the audio and I don‘t like the narrator. I‘m going to read a few chapters on my kindle and see if that changes my mind 1mo

Finally finished the one and I must say I enjoyed it more than the first book in the series, Pillars of the Earth. I did mostly audio and the narrator was wonderful. I think his character voices are part of the reason I really hated certain characters. While the book is quite long, the author did a great job of telling the stories of several main characters, spanning over 30 years. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Finished my first book for the #bookfitnesschallenge! This was my first time reading Adriana Herrera and I really enjoyed this book. I didn‘t work out today even though I‘d planned to. My right ear has been plugged all day and it‘s driving me crazy that I can‘t pop it. Ear drops haven‘t helped either 😫. Anyway, on to my next book 🌟🌟🌟🌟

wanderinglynn Yay! 1st book done! 🙌🏻 But I hope your ear feels better soon. 💚 2mo
