GAHHHHH what a heart racing climax that was!! Best murder solving yet of the books- I was scared and had no guesses to the outcome 😱Brilliant. I‘m so sad I am now starting the last book of this amazing series 😭The end is near !

When the next book is a 2 week wait 😭😳 Audiobook is not available on SCRIBD until the 20th ( 7 DAYS 😱) and no hardcopy at Library. 📚REALLY I am in love with this series. Did not predict The murderer from Death in the Stacks. I‘m not sure if I can wait much longer for the next book ☹️

Found a audiobook to listen to this cold and drizzling work day in the library! This is one of the books never read in Jr High- it wasn‘t on the reading list at my school and never got a chance to read it! Enjoying it so far 😱💙

Scochrane26 I read it in MS & again a couple of yrs ago. My pastor‘s daughter was obsessed w/ it for at least a yr, made me want to re-read. 1w

When the Audiobook version of the book you are currently reading won‘t be available for 10 days 😭😱Tomorrow is Parent Conferences at Clift and the Library is going to be empty- I was hoping to get some audiobook listening done while shelving 💔

Finished book6️⃣🎉Because my library didn‘t have this book in any format, I resorted to Audiobook on SCRIBD. I FLEW THROUGH it! I was hooked and listened to it every chance I got. 💙 I think from@now on I will have it on both ebook and audio so I can have both options to read/ listen when I have the chance 😊

Audio Cooking! Sad that book #7 A Likely Story is not available in hard copy, ebook, or audio format at my library. 😢While Im very grateful for SCRIBD coming in clutch, I do like reading these cozy mysteries instead of listening. Was tempted to start another cozy mysteries, but had to remind myself there are only 3 more books left! Thankful that my library has a couple other similar series as this one. 💙📚

3.5-4 🌟Great story but GEEZ I am getting tired of the Love Triangle ordeal. One book it‘s cute and funny, but lasting 3 books is RIDICULOUS. Lindsey needs to just make up her mind and make a decision. She‘s going down the Twilight Love Triangle path and I am getting horrible flashbacks from the Drama of the Triangle from that series.

Much darker storyline than the last two books, but still enjoyable and still “hooked “ on the series 😜 I have fallen doe Cozy Mysteries. Leave any recommendations for Cozy Mysteries you love in the Comments ⤵️ Themes I like: Library, Tea, Food/
Cooking related. I found a TON of books on the Cozy Mystery List Blog ( https://www.cozy-mystery.com/blog/cozy-mystery-librarians.html) - I need help weeding to the good ones!

ReadingDownUnder Gray Whale Inn and the Library Lovers (you tagged) are my two favourites!! I‘m reading ARCs for Netgalley and made a blog of my reviews so they think I‘m useful. I can give you the link if you want. These are cozies being published this month, mainly Halloween theme. Actually, I‘m reading Sept 24 pub dates now. They‘re Christmasy!! 2mo
Emily92Bibliophile @ReadingDownUnder so sorry I‘m just now replying ! 😳I haven‘t been on Litsy in while! That‘s cool! If you want that sounds delightful! I haven‘t had much chance to read lately so I‘m not sure Rn when I‘ll be able to read the ARCS🤗 1mo
ReadingDownUnder @Emily92Bibliophile They might give you ideas of series to read from the beginning. I‘ll definitely have to go back and read the first few books in many of the ARCs i reviewed! https://readingdownunder.blogspot.com Happy Reading!! 1mo

Ah what a cozy read! Here in 102 degree weather in Texas, this cozy sequel in the midst of a snowstorm hit the spot. Absolutely adorable and fun. The next 3 ebooks in the series are checked out on Libby- held the physical copies online! Hopefully they will be ready ASAP! I want MORE !!💙❄️ I am flying through this series it seems- planning to get a good chunk of the series finished before I go back to work next week 🤞🏻

Just finished the trilogy I can only compare to the greatness of LOTR and WOE IS ME! Not sure how I can recover from the mourning of the ending of this magical trilogy. Don‘t get me wrong- it ended wonderfully and wrapped up better than I could have hoped for! But I waited 7 MONTHS after PREORDERING IT (since December) to start this one because I didn‘t want this amazing story to end! 💙I cannot recommended this trilogy enough !

Tried listening to this one on audio a couple weeks back. The narrator‘s style wasn‘t my thing and it started VERY slow. However, decided to give the graphic novel a chance. A good choice. Still took a while to get interesting but glad I finished it. This might be a series that I just read in graphic novel form 🤷🏼‍♀️

📖 Litsians Assemble! 📚Just started the Outlander show and I am HOOKED. I love historical fiction and this seems right up my ally. Im wondering if this is a series YOU would recommend me listening on Audiobook after I finish my journey through Middle Earth with the Silmarillion? 🤔

baes Yes! Love the audiobooks. It is a series I listen and read at same time, but I also listen to alone in car. It took me part of book 1 to get used to her voice, but once I did then I couldn‘t imagine anyone else doing it. She is fantastic with all the accents and voices. 5mo
StayCurious I loved the audiobook - the narrator does the accents wonderfully. 5mo
swishandflick The audiobooks are wonderful! Davina Porter does a phenomenal narration. 5mo
Emily92Bibliophile @baes @StayCurious @swishandflick thank you all for your help 🙏🏻I think I‘m gonna dive into the audiobooks after finishing The Silmarillion 5mo
