The Roman Hat Mystery | Ellery Queen

I had an uncle who had a collection of Ellery Queen and Agatha Christie.. when I was younger I used to always sit and look at the covers when I was there.. I had forgotten all about them until I found the audio book on hoopla. I figured I would finally check out those books that my uncle lived so much

blurb

In to the next book in the series!!

Listening while crocheting and lord I keep getting distracted with the story and messed up the pattern.. lol I have a new series to love

blurb

I need a change of genre so some paranormal romance it is.. I don‘t read or listen often but any audio book I have listened to lately hasn‘t caught my attention.. so maybe something different will help.

Started this one yesterday and just finished I stayed up way too late but it‘s one of those I need to know what happens next book.. and it definitely kept me guessing.. I got an arc @StMartinsPress as surprise bookmail so thank very much for allowing me to enjoy this great story.. I have a new favorite recommendation book

So this one is next in my list but I have a feeling I‘ll be skimming to the parts that interest me most

It was an interesting story but I felt like it could have used a bit more detail about certain things.. I feel like something would happen and then it would jump to something else.. and the ending felt rushed like ok I get it they ran out of supplies and backup so they have to learn how to survive on the land like their ancestors which I believe was the point of the story.. but now@if the events felt connected and left me confused most of the book

blurb

Found the audio on hoopla so I can read it at home and listen when taking and picking up my son from school

Picked up my hold from the library.. blame the @bookriot #getbooked podcast thanks @Amanda and jenn.. I‘m loving this book so far..

Can you guess where I went this weekend.. went to visit family and my only request was to visit here.. having been in my 20”s when it happened and experiencing the fear of the unknown that day.. living in philly in the historic area and having the city completely shut down and the quiet.. The visit to the museum was an experience I will never forget seeing things up close from that day is so sad.. it‘s so eerie and quiet

blurb

Listening on audio from Libby during my bus rides from taking and picking up my son from school however I keep zoning out.. should I find a different version of the book

hjreviews After reading war and peace, I don‘t think I could ever listen to an audiobook for Leo Tolstoy. But i hope you find a version that works for you! 2mo
Melli I have a physical copy should I just read it instead.. I‘m thinking this is one of those books that an audio book doesn‘t work for 2mo

So I have decided I cannot read this for long periods of time as it‘s very sad and emotional but I cannot and will not DNF it instead I will read a chapter a day.. i think it will be enough to make me Not want to cry while reading but I could be wrong.

Well I throughly enjoyed this book.. I am a big Fan of Keirsten White and love her work. This was a dark and chilling twist on the story of Frankenstein. I think Mary Shelley would approve!

Listened to this one as an audio book as I was crocheting. Nice quick read/listen.
I actually have the ebook of this one and the 2nd book in the series but when I saw my library had it as an audio I had to get it. I loved the way that the author writes and the detail of the time period that she gives.. I will definitely continue this series. I guess it‘s a historical cozy mystery.. well however you would categorize it i loved it.

Currently listening to and crocheting

Linsy I love your crochet hook! 3mo
Djspens I wish I‘d paid attention when my grandma tried to teach me to crochet... 3mo
Melli My mom crocheted but she‘s a lefty and I‘m not I taught myself after I had my second child. I had a mild case of PPD and I said I didn‘t want meds I know crochet helped my mom so I thought I would try.. there are a lot of videos on YouTube to learn you should try.. 3mo
Melli @Linsy thank you I got a set of them off wish!! 3mo

Ok so I don‘t know what‘s going on but I just did a review and the title changed to some random title what so I‘m redoing it.. had anyone else had this issue

**correction of title of book** my last post I chose the wrong title cause I wasn‘t paying attention **. So I was in the library yesterday waiting@to do my daughters passport for her 8th grade trip to Mexico and you know it‘s like being in the dmv so I decided hey I need something to read I saw this and I have been wanting to read it.. I was in there so long I got threw a quarter of the book. Well I was invested now so I checked it out..

I listened to this as an audio book from my library and I am glad I did. I loved the way that the narrator told the story. It helped me to picture it in my mind.
It did start off slow,but it made me question if I was gonna like this book. So if your reading and you think the same thing keep going it gets better the pace picks up and so does the action. I‘m excited to find out what is gonna happen next.

Ok so my suspect list was accurate kinda.. I love the way it flowed and the way the author told this story.. however I will warn you when you get to the ending chapters have some tissue.. you will cry..

The Night Olivia Fell | Christina McDonald

Ok so far I got 4possible suspects her boyfriend her best friends brother(I think she cheated with him cause she had a crush on him and got pregnant) or the chick that looked like her because she started asking questions trying to find out who her father is. Or the father.. because well he‘s an important person supposedly and if he is her father it could tarnish his image..

Well my daughter read this when I bought it for her a while ago.. she loved it then proceeded to tell me I should read it.. she has a HB copy and with my RA it‘s hard for me to hold HB books long so I finally gave in and got the audio from my library.. listening to it now and I‘m not sure how I feel.
