BooksintheDelta @Booksnchill I am hoping I like it enough to finish all 3 too! For me this cover is lovely and of course I love Rowling. The premise is not super engaging to me but the characters are great! 2y

I have checked off a few in #tbrbingo world! This Phryne Fisher story was set up with flashbacks of her time in Paris during WWI so I used it as a book set in Italy or France. It was a cute little mystery. Not the cleverest tie together at the end but still satisfying enough.

JazzFeathers Oh, l'm sorry to hear the ending is kind of weak. I've enjoyed it so far. Trying to finishing it tonight 2y

Closed Casket: The New Hercule Poirot Mystery | Agatha Christie, Sophie Hannah
post image
Pickpick

A little upside downside here... Hannah has done quite well to mimic Christie's Poirot character. The dialogue and actions from Poirot are familiar, even evolved perhaps. But, the plot was not the perfect combination of comfortable suspense and surprise that I turn to Christie for. One of the characters here even defends her own slightly clumsy mystery stories. So, I'm happy there are more Poirot novels, but there's a small crack in the universe.

I'm on vacation but spending downtime mostly chatting with my family, so not a lot of reading going on. But I opened this up on my Kindle tonight then quickly realized poetry is perfect for travel. Reflective but short, leaving you feeling even more impacted by the day. #paris #milkandhoney #travel #paris #poetry

Timequake is my favorite read from September 2017. It's profoundly thoughtful and funny. Put it at the TOP of your list! I read 5 books in total. Not bad but I can do better!

MinDea What did you think of Then There Were None? That is my December #BookToScreen buddy read. 2y

My second or third time finishing this one. LOVE these type of mysteries. Sherlock, Poirot, "Cozy Mysteries" of all varieties. Even though they are mysteries I find them to be soothing and an easy break from heavier material.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Ting-a-ling! To be fair I had started Timequake before I made this #tbrbingo card, so this was just finishing it up. But I had been dragging this book out longer in order to savor it. It's rare to know while you are finishing each chapter, rather than at the end of the book, that this one is worth slowing down. Easily a solid 5 stars.

MrBook Nice review! 2y

Excellently engaging book that everyone should read. I came at this a little skeptical but was on almost every point completely enlightened on the often overlooked complications in the racial system of the United States. There was slight minimization that jailed people did in fact commit a crime, BUT the information presented here explains well (in a non confrontational way) why it's still an overwhelmingly unfair and oppressive system.

This person, though, wanted to break me down, which became interesting because I didn't know I could be broken down further. Who knew? They did, I guess. They smelled it on me...I was in my 20s and desperately insecure, so I thought this was what all relationships were like. I thought this is what I deserved because I was so worthless.

Finished a while back, and never followed up, what a riot! Loved the beginning, not so much the way the end was wrapped up. But a fun read nonetheless. Watch for an eBook deal and grab it cheaply, then fly through it... don't expect a masterpiece but enjoy it for it's quirkiness and fun structure.
