Hunting Prince Dracula | Kerri Maniscalco
post image

This second book is just as delightfully spooky and page-turning as the first. Audrey Rose and Thomas are at school competing for their places as forensic students. Of course bodies start to show up, drained of blood, and the locals are terrified of the legends of Prince Dracula. AR and Thomas caught The Ripper, can they stop Dracula? #YA

booksandsympathy I really enjoyed book 1 but haven't read the others yet. I own them, so I really should read them. 2w

Stalking Jack the Ripper | Kerri Maniscalco
post image
Pickpick

This was a fun re-read and I listened on audio this time. Same narrator as Jackaby series. Now I remember it and can move on to the next book in the series. Really a great spooky book with a strong female lead who loves science and uses it to stop Jack the Ripper and save innocent women from being murdered.

Can‘t wait to read some of these titles from @Librarybelle for #NewYearWhoDis in January 2022. I‘ve been eyeballing some of these authors and have some of these on my TBR mountain for sure. I‘ve read 8 and 14 with #sundaybuddyread and I started 9 for #lmpbc, but didn‘t get to finish it and it got lost on its way back to me. Looking forward to trying it again along with many others!

Librarybelle Yay!! 3w

Red, White & Royal Blue | Casey McQuiston
Bailedbailed

😩 I couldn‘t do it. I got 75 pages in and bailed at 136. I tried. I really tried for my book group and feel terrible for choosing this one. It has strong language right away, along with steamy sex scenes. I wanted a cute gay romance. That is not what this was. I also found it to be not all that well written. Apparently I am not old enough for this type of book! 🤷‍♀️ I liked the idea, but not the execution. Pan for me. I‘ll stick to Cerulean Sea.

A fun cozy mystery where enchanted beings are trapped at a Ren Faire. When problems arise in the Mermaid Kingdom, Cori the fairy jumps in to help solve the mystery. Plus, she has a crush on the MerPrince which increases her need to help the mermaids. A fun read with likable characters. I actually guessed the twist on this one fairly early, but still enjoyed it. #cozymystery #paranormalmystery #renfaire

I really enjoyed listening to this one as part of @MoonWitch94 ‘s read along. It was full of humor, likable characters, and interesting science and history that pulled me in. I find all of the evolution and DNA parts fascinating and think Harkness did a great job with research in order to be able to add that to her storyline. I couldn‘t put it down and I‘m looking forward to book 2!! #teammatthew

katy4peas I will say I don‘t like that Matthew is so possessive of Diana. However, it is explained that that is in a vampire‘s nature and I appreciate that he shows growth in being able to let her take charge of the time walking (because he has to) but he also shows growth in other ways where he lets her be herself and take care of herself and he tries to back down. She is also very independent in her own right. 1mo
Vansa Quite honestly, this book was still when Deborah Harkness was hewing to Twilight tropes- Matthew's domineering nature, Diana's deference to him to begin with,watching her while she sleeps and so on.She dismantles these tropes entirely, as you said,from the last third of the book and completely in the next 2( except for one more Twilight trope she keeps but only one!) 1mo

A surprising pick for me! Two rival gangs in Shanghai and a mystery madness that is killing off people from both sides. Roma and Juliette come together to stop the madness and save their people and beloved city from dying. A bit gory and bloody with detailed descriptions in some parts, however the humor was fun and I enjoyed the reimagined story of R&J and their gay friends. Eagerly awaiting the sequel. #audio #sundaybuddyread

A charming audiobook in the likes of A Man Called Ove, this one follows Arthur as he looks for the stories in the charms on his late wife‘s bracelet. The charms reveal a life Arthur never knew about and make him question his own life. While it is a sweet book, it also includes man-eating tigers! A fun read for sure!

I loved this storyline quite a bit as the character was able to stand up for herself and do what made her happy even though her family was completely against it. However, 75% through, and it started to get repetitive for me, so I bailed. It has great messages, but was a bit slow moving compared to other books I‘m reading at the same time. Might finish at some point, but bailing for now. 🤷‍♀️ #mtTBR

I really enjoyed this lighthearted YA romance. At first, it was a little slow for me as I was figuring out the timeline and the caste system. It does take place in the future when the US no longer exists after WW4.
I like America a lot. She is spunky and stubborn, but very caring.
Some parts were very predictable, but overall it was a page turner for me and I really enjoyed it. I have a book hangover now!

An interesting take on the high school mean girls trope. I was curious enough to keep going and got all the way through this as an audiobook. The characters were okay, but I like the messages of learning to be yourself and the cultural tie-ins. I would have liked more discussion on bullying and bystanders as that came up a lot and the MC did nothing, but 🤷‍♀️

Triggers: Rape, language, semi-graphic murder, cyber-bullying, underage drinking

This one really, really sucked me in. I really liked the characters. I was cheering for them the whole way through. Once the backstories were established, the plot picked up speed and I really got into it. At that point, the characters were not listening to me as I tried to give them advice and save them from their future decisions. But they didn‘t listen to me! 🙄 By the end, I was 😭 OMG. #overbookedclub

This one is a fun page-turner. It took me a little bit to get into the Scottish lads and lass and keep the characters straight, but the action started right away. I liked the characters and struggled through their emotions right along with them on their journey. Drest is so brave and grows a lot over her journey of six days. Tig is just plain nice and I really do like Emerick. Lots of good lessons. I‘m ready for the sequel. 👍🏼

Hey everybody! I need book recs for my dads birthday! He really likes Peter Swanson‘s plots and characters and likes Daniel Silva. He writes his own stories and is very picky about what he likes, but likes mysteries and poetry. I think he has read all of Poe/Christie as they are classics. We also found Noah Boyd who he really liked, but the guy only wrote about 3-4 books. Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you! 📚📚 #pickyreader #hardtochoose

Mollyanna I would recommend the Cotton Malone series by Steve Berry. Malone is a former government operative who retired to Copenhagen to run a book store. He keeps getting pulled back into his old world though. 3mo

Bailedbailed

I can see why this book is enjoyable. GUP is fun and is learning a lot while taking care of the kids, but it is a little bit slow moving for me and it turned into a bail. I just don‘t care about the celebrity or ex-celebrity life and Palm Springs and that dragged down the speed of the book for me. I can see where the idea is fun and why people like it. Maybe this will be a “listen to” instead of “read it” book.

katy4peas @kspenmoll I didn‘t know much about her either apart from her name was familiar to me. I was amazed that Susan B Anthony did what she did. Not that she wasn‘t great in her own right, but that comment that Lucy made about Susan choosing to write history in a certain way, reminds me very much of certain people today 😡 and rather shocked me. I wasn‘t expecting that from someone that we think of as so wonderful and as such a great leader. Also, the 4mo

Slow going cozy. Usually I love cozies, but this one just chugged along and seemed to go back and forth in circles. Also seemed a bit patchy with “oh yeah she needs to take care of the kids now” and “let‘s go back to the mystery”. Not super smooth transitions between her family and her work. 60% thru before Mabel is even mentioned. 🤷‍♀️ bailing on this one. Lost interest.

A fun book about finding yourself. Vanessa‘s fate is to tell fortunes, but she fights it every step of the way. She wants romance in her life and is convinced that she will never be able to have her happily ever after. During her stay in Paris to help her aunt open a tea shop, she meets a very nice man who she hopes she won‘t frighten away with her fortunes…
A fun read with likable characters and yummy food!
