✨ Book Review ✨

I finished Sprinkle With Murder by Jenn Mckinlay a last weekend and it was such a feel good book. I’ve had this one on my shelf for so long and I’m sad that it took me so long to read it.

I love cozy mysteries because of the feel good vibes they bring while reading them. This series follows Melanie Cooper and her best friend Angie living out their dreams as owners of the Fairy Tale Cupcakes bakery.

Their first big order is for a demanding bridezilla who only wants original recipes. When Melanie stumbles upon her dead body she becomes a suspect. To save her business Mel looks for the real killer.
I really enjoyed Melanie as a character she is the perfect armature sleuth. This was an easy read and flowed very well . It does have cheesy parts but they are tolerable. I will be reading the rest of this series

Caste by Isabella Wilkerson

Synopsis: Beyond race, class, or other factors a powerful caste system influenced people’s lives and behavior and the nations fate. Caste is an eye opening story of people and history and a reexamination of what lies under the surface of American life today

This month flew by! I’m hoping to finish the month with this book which seems great for the current state of society and with the election next week!

Wow 😳

I haven’t read anything from Fredrik Backman before and I’m now wondering why I haven’t he’s such a talented author!
Synopsis: Looking at real estate isn’t usually a life or death situation, but an apartment open house becomes just that when a failed bank robber bursts in and takes a group of strangers hostage. Each of them carries a lifetime of grievances, hurts, secrets, and passions that are ready to boil over.

I enjoyed every page of this book. I wasn’t expecting some of the twists that took place but I enjoyed every last one. I really liked the ending and how there was a happy ending to all of the chaos. I found it to be a story about what happens when we become hopeless and don’t know where else to turn. But when we have a solid support system that gives us hope we can carry on. I will be checking out other books by this author I really enjoyed his writing style.

✨Home Before Dark ✨

After taking a book hiatus..( very unplanned) I finished home before dark over the weekend!

This is my first Riley Sager book and I enjoyed all the twist and turns he threw at me. I saw this book all over the gram and figured it would be the perfect october book to read and wasn’t disappointed.

Synopsis:

I liked how the book told the story of the present and the past it gave so much perspective and intrigue to the story. Again the twists and turns really got me, right when I think I’ve solved the mystery and it’s over something happens to throw that theory into the trash. I also enjoyed that even though it was a thriller the main character kind of ended her story on a happy note sort of (besides the stuff with her mom). As someone who gets startled by her own shadow I felt that this book wasn’t as scary 👻 as I’d pictured. I can’t wait to read more by Riley

The Night Swim

The Night Swim

Wow 😯 this book is… I don’t think I can describe it in one word.

I just finished The Night Swim by Megan Goldin

Synopsis: After the first season of her true crime podcast became an overnight sensation and set an innocent man free, Rachel Krall is now a household name.But she’s used to being recognised for her voice, not her face. Which makes it all the more unsettling when she finds a note on her car windshield, addressed to her, begging for help. The small town of Neapolis is being torn apart by a devastating rape trial. The town’s golden boy, a swimmer destined for Olympic greatness, has been accused of raping a high school student, the beloved granddaughter of the police chief.

😡🤬🤯☹️😭 (these sum up all of my feelings about this book.

Besides the the topic being rape I really enjoyed this book. The mystery of putting together all of the pieces and wondering what really happened was enjoyable. The story of both women is very gut wrenching but I liked how it switches between two women with similar experiences that will be forever linked to a small town. The ending threw me for a loop. If you’ve been thinking about adding this to your TBR and don’t mind heavy topics such as rape and suicide then I suggest picking this one up.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Happy Thursday

I’m currently reading The Night Swim by Megan Goldin

It is a tough one I’ll admit, I had to watch Zootopia last night before bed just to put my mind at ease. I am loving it but I am angry and sad all mixed together. I can’t wait to finish it tomorrow.

I hope you guys are having a great week! 😄

Book Review

Synopsis: Alison Green desperate valedictorian wannabe, agrees to produce her schools production of. Midsummers Night’s Dream. That’s her first big mistake. The second is accidentally saying yes to a date with her oldest best friend, Jack, even though she’s crushing on Charolette. Allison must cope with the misadventures that befall the play if she’s going to survive this year

I really enjoyed this book! It was so funny and a light read. I enjoyed how the main character had a coming of age moment at the end of the book. She spent the whole year really trying to figure out who she was, while being a senior in high school. And let’s be honest senior year of high school is not always very easy. The book flowed very well and kept me highly entertained throughout the whole thing. I would definitely recommend this if you want something light.
