We‘ve bought a book in this series each time we‘ve gone to New Orleans. Guess it‘s time for a return trip! This was even better than the first!

A book based on New Orleans legends and lore, in New Orleans, by a New Orleans author? Yes, please. Her writing made me feel like I was there. I could picture the actual places in my head, and it made me want to go back immediately.

It took me absolutely forever to slog through this. I found it incredibly boring. I went into it expecting to be scared, since it‘s categorized as horror, but I assure you it is not as expected. This book was a huge disappointment.

This was an interesting read. The story wasn‘t mind-blowing by any means, but I was entertained no less.

I really didn‘t think the library‘s 21 days would be enough time for me to read this chonker…they do realize some people have to work, right?? But, I did it! With 2 days to spare! It was another really good one in the series. However, this time, I was left on a cliffhanger, and I haaaaate thaaaaat😭.

This was a little slow at first, but then the pace took a 180, and I couldn‘t put it down.

Reading about these institutions always makes me so sad and angry. I had to reread the ending…didn‘t even realize what was happening as a read it! Overall, a good read, but obviously not an enjoyable subject matter.

This book took forever to pick up. I don‘t think I actually got invested until the last 60 pages.

It took me FOREVER to get through this, and, of course, it hooked me at the end…making me consider reading the second one. How dare you?!

This book became available to borrow at my library, so I paused my current book…again. This series was light and quick reading, but I enjoyed it all the same!

This book was absolutely awful. I often times wondered if it was written by a 13 year old…the writing was incredibly immature. Truly terrible. I slogged through it for a month. I should have bailed, but by the time I realized how bad it was, I was too far in and had wasted too much time.

Oh, man. I really liked this one. Great story that I couldn‘t put down, and such a wholesome friendship.

This was such a disappointment compared to the other 2 books. I honestly just wanted it to end. I understand how unlikely the scenario of the first 2 books is, but the 3rd went past ludicrous. At least in the first 2, Pip was believably intelligent…she somehow lost all common sense in this one. Bummer, dude.

blurb

I‘m not done yet, but I‘m frustrated. I am fully aware that this series is far fetched, but Pip has always been clever. In this one, it was very obvious who the killer was, and she somehow missed it…and she continues to make completely ridiculous decisions. I needed a quick vent, because I am very frustrated. Rant over.

Jgacreations Yes that‘s exactly what I‘m feeling!! Like come on, your teens lol. 7mo
Blh87 @Jgacreations great series, but this one frustrated me to no end! 7mo

I HATE bailing on books, but I have way too many books begging to be read to keep trying to plow through something so boring. I absolutely hate that half of this story is told in footnotes. I find it incredibly disruptive to the flow. I had high hopes for this one, but alas, it‘s not for me.

A decent story, but I wasn‘t blown away. I had to kind of trudge through the old-time British slang, which slowed me down a bit….

I‘ve never read a “cozy mystery” before, but I believe this would fall into that category. I really enjoyed it! I would certainly continue this series!

The author is described as the Jordan Peele of horror literature…this is very accurate. This story was a bit slow for me, and I didn‘t love the writing style. I think it would make an excellent movie, though.

I wanted to read this book before the movie came out. Overall, I enjoyed it, but Sophie‘s character may be the most frustratingly shallow person of all time. I realize this is likely very intentional.

I really enjoyed the writing, but the story moved a little slow for me. It may have been my fault, because I read two other books while reading this one, but I think the pace could have been picked up a bit. It was also a much heavier book than I anticipated, so I‘ll need to find something a bit lighter next!

I put The southern Book Club‘s Guide to Slaying Vampires on hold because it was too bulky to bring into the BWCA, so I started this one on the kindle. Not a bad backdrop.

I finished this like a week ago, and honestly, it was not very good at all. The storyline was a bit absurd in my opinion, and I found none of the characters likable.

I have read the first 2 books in this series as they become available at the library. It‘s a very shallow series, but they are quick reads, and I‘m still enjoying them. I don‘t find Belly (or Conrad) to be particularly likable characters, but I‘m interested to see where this goes.

This book was ok. It was a bit slow-moving at times. I could see this being an overall decent series, but I‘m not sure I‘ll continue. I‘ve got too many other books I‘d rather read!
