I really enjoyed reading this BookPage article on Augusten Burroughs and Toil & Trouble. I‘ve had the book on my “to read” list for a while, but this article gave me a whole new insight into the book and author and makes me even more excited to read it 📚 Bonus points if you spot a guest appearance by Midnight! 🐾🐾 #bookpage #booksbrewsandbooze #toilandtrouble #augustenburroughs #imawitch #memoir

I find cozy mysteries fascinating! I can‘t handle really scary, suspenseful mysteries, so cozy is right up my alley. I LOVE the humor - the puns are real, my friends! 😂 My friends are getting used to me halting all conversation to read a new cozy title out loud and then I laugh and laugh and laugh! Such fun!

The Chocolate Shark Shenanigans is the first cozy mystery I‘ve read and I‘m pleased to say it went well. [Review continues in comments]

booksbrewsandbooze
What I like:

A quick read
Kept me engaged
Chocolate history and trivia peppered throughout
1w
booksbrewsandbooze Things I struggled with:

Characters doing stupid stuff, especially when it came to police investigations (I‘m pretty sure this comes with the territory of cozy mysteries though - the amateur sleuth!
1w
booksbrewsandbooze
Lots of names/characters: I have the memory span of a goldfish, so I admit that I had to go back a few times to try and remember who someone was or to keep names/relationships straight

The villain: Scarily one dimensional and not sure how someone that evil would fit into society without people being more wary of them

Overall: I‘d absolutely read more books by author JoAnna Carl. The Chocolate Shark Shenanigans ticks many of the boxes when it comes to cozy mysteries. I would have liked to hear more about the chocolate shop business. There was so much going on in the book that it sometimes felt like that job was an aside.

The cover is so fun. Great colors and illustrations - campy and cute.
1w
booksbrewsandbooze
I didn‘t solve the mystery ahead of time, which kept the action going and there were twists and turns that held my interest all throughout. Now if you‘ll excuse me, I‘m off to buy chocolate dusted with sea salt!

One of the greatest joys in life is the cozy mystery genre! I think it‘s hilarious that genres exist like “cozy bookshop mysteries,” “cozy tea shop mysteries,” “cozy B&B mysteries,” and now, “cozy chocolate mysteries!” 😂 Whenever I come across a new one, I run across the house and read the title to my roommate, with unabashed glee! #thechocolatesharkshenanigans #joannacarl #cozymysteries #booksbrewsandbooze

This is such a fascinating book. It's a must-read for fans of culinary history, history of France, wartime history, viticulture and more. Like other reviewers mentioned, you may not be able to sit and devour this in one sitting, but it's not difficult to read. It's just, you know... not fiction... so it's engaging in a different way. [Rest of review in comments] #booksbrewsandbooze #abitesizedhistoryoffrance

I listened to the audiobook and I'm not sure if this is because of Chirp, where I bought it from, or the recording itself, but it often left out the last few seconds and words of a chapter. Most of the time it was easy to guess the word, but sometimes, not so much... leaving me hanging!
2w
booksbrewsandbooze

What that did though, was make me want to buy a hardcopy. But that's not the only reason why I'd like to own this book. The history is so fascinating and I want to memorize it so I can tell other people about the origins of Grey Poupon or Laughing Cow cheese.

Ellie is like the friend who makes the same mistakes over and over again, is oblivious to reality, and makes you so angry that you could hurl. But yet, you stick around anyway, understanding why she is the way she is, or makes the decisions she makes, and you keep on hoping she will make the right one... the best one... for her. Haven‘t we all felt this way about a friend before? Or maybe even about ourselves? (Rest of review in comments)

booksbrewsandbooze I love books where the setting is one of the main characters. Reading about Exmoor made me want to learn more about it, to see the colors the author vividly describes. Hazel Prior thanks Exmoor in her acknowledgments at the back of the book, so it makes sense that the location plays a great deal into the book. 2mo
booksbrewsandbooze I could have honestly used more harp! “More harp” is the next “more cowbell.” More descriptions of the harps and what playing does would have been great for me. 2mo
booksbrewsandbooze So there‘s a bit of a mystery in the book (not a creepy one). Just a “what‘s in the past?” unraveling. I guessed it while reading the back cover and it was pretty obvious going through the book, so if you‘re looking for a shocking reveal, it‘s not like that. I don‘t necessarily think it was supposed to be either. 2mo
See All 10 Comments
booksbrewsandbooze There were some annoying bits based on characters‘ actions, as in “how are they not realizing this very obvious thing? Does no one else see he‘s nuts? Have you completely forgotten that thing from the past?!” People do put blinders on, so it is human nature I suppose, but sometimes, I wanted to yell at the characters. 2mo
booksbrewsandbooze Still, I kept on reading because I wanted to know what was going to happen to the characters. I was really hoping Ellie would figure it all out eventually and find what she was lacking. No spoilers. You‘ll have to read it yourself!
2mo
booksbrewsandbooze Side note: I wasn‘t entirely sure until the end of the book if it would go the way I hoped it might. It honestly could have gone either way or maybe a million different ways, and I like that that part kept me guessing until the end. 2mo
booksbrewsandbooze
When I finished the book, I had that feeling of “oh, I want to know what happens next to them!” Always a good thing, to have that feeling after closing a book, isn‘t it?

booksbrewsandbooze This was an ARC my roommate received and I shamelessly yoinked from his pile. These feelings are my own and not influenced in any way by the receiving of an ARC through nefarious roommate means. ;) 2mo

“Doctors and dentists minister to our physical needs. Prime ministers minister to our political needs. Plumbers minister unto taps. But harp players (and indeed all musicians) minister unto something else.

The something else is much deeper than the bits we can see, but far more important. In my opinion, music ministers to the real person that hides inside the person-shell.” #booksbrewsandbooze #ellieandtheharpmaker #hazelprior

🐌 A sweet little children‘s book about direction and perspective, to help little ones understand things like “up, down, through, into, over,” etc.

🐌 There‘s a page at the end that shows the route the snail took, and parents and caregivers can show the child how the snail went through a cave that was really a flower pot! Through an arch that was really a gardening tool, that kind of thing. Super fun and super sweet.

All wet! All wet! | James Skofield

Pickpick

Book: All Wet, All Wet, by James Skofield. Illustrations by Diane Stanley. ☔️ The illustrations are absolutely beautiful. As a pluviophile (lover of rain), seeing the softness rain brings to the forest is nothing short of magical.

The text is beautiful too, about the simplicity and beauty of nature in the rain. [Rest of review in comments, with sensitivity warning for sensitive kids and adults] #booksbrewsandbooze

booksbrewsandbooze Now let‘s get real for a sec. :D I am one of those hugely sensitive people who appreciates warnings about content that might completely throw me off on a super-sensitive tailspin. 3mo
booksbrewsandbooze Even when it comes to children‘s books! There is a skunk in this book who takes an egg from a quail‘s nest, as skunks are prone to do... (are they prone to doing this? I don‘t actually know, but I‘m going to assume the author does). 3mo
booksbrewsandbooze The skunk snacks on it and it‘s not super detailed or anything like that, but I felt a twinge of “oh, that poor quail.” I know these things happen, but I am of the mindset that I don‘t need to see it. I don‘t think this would have upset me as a kid, oddly enough, but it‘s tough to say, since I‘ve always been sensitive to certain things. So if you or your child are one of those sensitive souls too, this is just a heads-up. 3mo
booksbrewsandbooze The beautiful illustrations accompanying the poetic words do make it a lovely addition to my library. I love that spiders get a shout-out, because they‘re so great and beneficial to the ecosystem. “Skunk passes spiders, sitting like black stars, motionless, at the hub of diamond webs.” 🕸🕷 #booksbrewsandbooze #childrensbookreview #allwetallwet #jamesskofield #dianestanley 3mo

Whimsy, beauty, joy. This is the book I would have spent hours poring over as a kid, seeking out every detail I could find. I felt the joy and connection with nature and whimsy while looking through it. I‘d say the book is a work of art, but in reality, it‘s works of art, plural. 💖

The Scent Keeper | Erica Bauermeister
post image
Pickpick


Whoa, this book. Where do I even begin? Engaging, curious, strange, infuriating, confusing, heartwarming, hopeful. These are just some of the words I can easily throw out there when I think of "The Scent Keeper" by Erica Bauermeister. It has elements I tend to gravitate toward in books: Magic, nature, magical realism, connecting to one or more of the five senses. [Rest in comments] #booksbrewsandbooze ?: Via Erica Bauermeister, IG

booksbrewsandbooze What a journey this book takes the reader on. Some of it doesn't make a lick of sense at all to the reader, but not in a way that makes the book hard to read or alienating. Rather, it's just like what would happen if we all took a tumble into our family's past. Not all of it would make sense and we may always wonder the age-old question: Why? Why did they do that? 6mo
booksbrewsandbooze "The Scent Keeper" touches on so many different themes: Abandonment, sacrifice, ancestors, the familial burdens and triumphs we carry with us, the power of scent and its ties to memories, the families who takes us in and love us, living in the past, refusing to see what's in front of you, creating new lives, shunning old lives and coming back full circle. 6mo

booksbrewsandbooze Is everything neatly tied up in a bow and all questions answered? Nope. But that's reality for you and I'm grateful for that in books because it helps us feel more connected to the book and its characters. There are mysteries in our lives, whether it's a long overdue conversation that doesn't happen, an apology unsaid, an 'I love you' never said out loud but always felt, a question of "why."
6mo
booksbrewsandbooze The mystery makes me want to know more. I want to know what happens to Emmeline, Fisher, the Secret Cove, her mom, her journey into healing. Insights abound in this book and I want to go through it again and underline them, sometimes for the insight and sometimes simply for the beautiful way Bauermeister strings words together. 6mo
booksbrewsandbooze I yearn for a continuation of the story. It would be so neat to follow the characters into what happens next.

Also, I think the publishers should come out with a line of plush stuffed animals based on this book, and one of the purses drawn in the back couldn‘t hurt either! :D

Book: Professor Chandra Follows His Bliss

Author: Rajeev Balasubramanyam

Five million stars! If I could give this book more than five stars on Goodreads, I would! By page 10, I was chuckling at the humor. I found myself frustrated by characters‘ actions, almost like they were my own family members, and cheering when Professor Chandra had a win.

booksbrewsandbooze It‘s lovely to go on this spiritual and familial journey with Professor Chandra and his family members. Life is complicated and families are complicated, but this book gives so much hope that, to quote Gil Scott-Heron, “no matter how far wrong you‘ve gone, you can always turn around.” 8mo

I really enjoyed this book. I‘m not super knowledgeable of Jane Austen‘s works, having only read Emma, but that didn‘t take away from my enjoyment of the book.📚

Of course, had I known all the references, my experience would have been richer, but it didn‘t disrupt the flow of the book or render confusion. [review continues in comments] #booksbrewsandbooze #confessionsofajaneaustenaddict 📚

I think humor is one of the hardest things to write about and the author did so well with it, making me laugh out loud at times, which not every book can boast!

9mo
booksbrewsandbooze There was one scene that drove me and my froomie (friend/roomie) crazy, and it was the scene in London where the main character meets someone coming out of a shop. Saying no more because I don‘t want to give spoilers, but good gravy, that was nuts! 9mo
booksbrewsandbooze #Time travel, literature, love, humor, sassy women, sensitive men: This book is quite complex in certain areas. I wonder if the author wrote a book from the actual Jane‘s perspective, as a companion to this Courtney-centric story? Hmmmm...

A wildly fascinating topic. I always appreciate books that give me suggestions for new books and articles to read on a topic - the bibliography is a gem. (Review continues in comments) #booksbrewsandbooze #insidethechinesewineindustry

booksbrewsandbooze I work at a vineyard, so wine and wine production is an interest of mine. I love reading about the history of wine and vineyards and this book didn‘t disappoint in that area.

booksbrewsandbooze The history of wine in China is fascinating and their business models and how that differs from other countries is really interesting. 12mo
booksbrewsandbooze There‘s a lot to digest in this book. It‘s not a quick read, almost reading like a dissertation in its depth, but it‘s not a hard read. The language is accessible and doesn‘t alienate a reader who isn‘t as well-versed in the wine industry. 12mo

I really enjoyed “Kiss Me at Christmas” by Valerie Bowman ❄️ Sometimes romances can be cookie cutter or corny and this was decidedly not the case with this book, I‘m happy to say! 📚A note at the end of the book said the author had fallen in love with Regina & Daffin‘s story and hoped we had to. I definitely did, they are great characters that I found myself rooting for. REST OF REVIEW IN COMMENTS :) #booksbrewsandbooze #kissmeatchristmas

booksbrewsandbooze It‘s always great to read about a strong female character and an honorable, respectful man. 12mo
booksbrewsandbooze The only thing I‘d change is something authors don‘t typically have control over: The woman on the cover didn‘t have the same color hair mentioned in the books! Yup, I dig the little details. :) 12mo
booksbrewsandbooze I also appreciated the way sexual content was written. Overly descriptive sex scenes or constant referencing of physical body parts take me out of the story and often are like reeds in a river, slowing me down as I go. The scenes in this book were well written and sexy without being gratuitous. Seduction is subtle and equals sexiness. 12mo

Incoming high praise: I want to read this book again and that‘s not always a given, so I‘m super excited by that!
