The Locked Room | Elly Griffiths
Mehso-so

The Locked Room was the 14th installment in this series but it was the first for me. I was not a huge fan and in seeing the other reviews, clearly in the minority.

It was just an ok read for me. It takes place at the start of the pandemic and I felt like Covid overshadowed the mystery plot(s).

Thank you to William Morrow and NetGalley for an advance eKindle addition in exchange for an honest review.

Three Things I know are true about this book:

1) It is topical
2) It is heart breaking
3) It is hopeful

Nicely done YA in verse dealing with an accidental shooting.

June #bookspin was a win!

What a well done historical MG novel that was based on the author's father's experience. I cried sad and happy tears throughout as this boy immigrated to the US alone at the start of Castro's reign.

May #Bookspin success!

3 5 rounded up for hopefulness.

This book was sweet (no pun intended) while dealing with issues of racism, poverty, divorce and familial discord. It was based on the author's life - the son of "Famous Amos', taking place in the 70s LA. My one critique was it felt a tad long for the age group.

Thank you to Little Brown YR for the ARC.

@TheAromaofBooks

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 2mo

The Murder Rule | Dervla McTiernan

This was a fun, easy read...as long as you suspend belief a bit as is typically needed in thrillers. It revolves around The Innocence Project and does a deep dive into moral dilemmas thematically.

I never read McTiernan before but did buy The Ruin after I finished this : )

Thank you to William Morrow & NetGalley for an eARC.

The Wild Girls | Phoebe Morgan
Panpan

This novel just did not click for me. Botswana was underutilized, the characters were unlikable, the pacing was slow, the final reveal was unsurprising.

It was my 2nd “locked room“ thriller that I didn't love, although the other did the locked room parts well (Reprieve). This one dragged and became repetitive.

April #Bookspin success!

My 3rd spin was finally a good one.

Caledon Books sent this sometime at the beginning of the pandemic and it got lost in a pile till last month. I usually prefer audio for nonfiction but this was a fast read highlighting the gay men victims' lives rather than the serial killer.

@TheAromaofBooks

mrp27 Yay! 3mo

#wondrouswednesday catch up

1. In the past few years i have found that I just love the Craig Johnson Longmire Series. They are my go-to if I want great writing, a great cast of characters in the beautifully described setting of Wyoming.

2. Being with book people that just want to discuss all things bookish.

3. The tagged book. I loved A Gentleman In Moscow and can't wait to get to this one.

Thanks for the tag @Eggs

March is done but was just ok for me. I am definitely in the minority but there was a major part of the plot that I didn't care for.

Back to Feb's pick now🙂
