First read of 2022 and really enjoyed it! It was rather heavy in some places, but had a great message.

I really enjoyed this book! I do love a good broken character (or a few of them) and the plot kept me on my toes.

A cute little novella while I wait for my free copy of book #2 that I won from Goodreads!!! First time I‘ve ever won one in the 9 plus years I‘ve been on there 😂. Anyway, this was cute and whimsical. I enjoyed the characters, but I wish it was longer!!

So this was a weird one for me. I don‘t normally like books where I don‘t like the main character, but this is an exception. Very well written and refreshing.

A Murderous Relation | Deanna Raybourn

This kind of felt like a filler book. Going to keep going with the series because I do love Veronica and Stoker, but this one fell a bit flat for me.

CleverGirl I enjoyed this book a lot, but the first 2/3s of the book is my least favorite in the series, and the last 1/3 might be my actual favorite so - a mixed review? Also, I started it directly after the previous book which is probably my actual favorite so it might just suffer by comparison. 2w
Crewgurl @CleverGirl totally agree! I felt like it had a lot of filler!!! But still enjoyed it. 4d

Not my favorite Jenny Colgan. It was still wholesome and had all the usual pieces, but felt a bit dragged out and the ending just didn‘t feel right.

Loved this! Very light and whimsical. The characters are a bit broken, but lovable. Reminds me of Sara Addison Allen , who hasn‘t had a new book in quite some time (definitely missing her!).

So obviously this isn‘t deep philosophical literature, but omg I‘m in love!!!! Exactly what I needed. I love Mercy and Adam is swoon worthy. Now to wait for my library hold for the second one. Thanks @ErinSueMreads for the recommendation!!!!

I do love a tale of misfits! I picked this up because it was reminiscent of Firefly, which will always hold a special place in my heart, and it didn‘t disappoint! Definitely a pick.

BekaReid Solid. Becky Chambers is a favorite. She writes so well, and book 4 comes out in a couple months! 🙂 11mo
Crewgurl @BekaReid how did you like the rest of the series??? I was torn on continuing. 11mo
BekaReid @Crewgurl I loved all of the series. Each book has a bit of a different flavor-i.e., book 2 focused on just 2 people vs a whole crew- but her writing is so good and her characters phenomenal. Worth continuing in my opinion. 11mo
Crewgurl @BekaReid thanks!! 11mo

It‘s been forever since I‘ve posted. I think the pandemic has really hit my reading hard. I read 32 books last year, which is incredibly low for me and this is only my second of the year. Trying to refocus!!!now on to the review...lol. I was torn between a pick a pick and a so-so on this one. It was a fun story line, the writing was decent, but it felt incomplete. That being said, I finished it in two sittings, so I rounded up to a pick.

Crewgurl Very happy to hear it! I completely get that. I‘m only managing Jenny Colgan these days. I just need light and fluffy lol. But my hold on the third Dresden Files book just came in, so I‘m going to have to step it up! @ErinSueMreads 2y

I struggled between a pick and a so-so with this one. It was a really interesting concept, but I just wanted more from the ending...that being said, I binge read it in 3 hours, so I rounded up to a pick!

This is a cheesy mystery series and it certainly delivers on that. The author kind of jumped into the ending after a lot of build up and it felt very rushed. The “romance” is getting a bit dragged out too, but we shall see what the next one brings.

I love this series, but this book seemed like a filler book, setting up for the next. This could have been condensed to a novella. Hopefully for the next one!

Panic70 I wasn‘t in love with this one either. And I thought I remembered liking the first couple more. Good perspective. I‘ll make sure I try reading the next one instead of giving up on the series. 2y
Crewgurl @Panic70 I feel like the next one will be good! It‘s all set up 😊 coming out in September! Aka forever. 2y

Did this as a buddy read. It was an interesting story, but so all over the place. I had no idea what was going on the whole time and I‘m still a little unsure of why any of it happened. Multiple authors really threw this one off. I think it could have used another 100+ pages of details! I would skip this one.

Finally finished this one. I don‘t know why, but I put it down months ago and just never picked it back up. I‘m glad I did! It was well worth the read. I thought this was going to be a trilogy, but I see a 4th is slated for publication in March and I‘m not sure how I feel about it. I kind of liked where it ended, but I‘m sure I will read it anyway.

Shley9225 Glad you liked this third one, it was definitely my favourite so far 😊😊 3y
Crewgurl @Shley9225 I did! If you like these, I highly recommend the Lady Darby series! 3y

The rock will be joining the collection on my desk at work (yes I have a rock collection on my desk, it‘s like you knew!! 👇
