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
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!
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.
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.
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
Another month down in this crazy year. I will say September seemed to be my best reading month, I enjoyed all of the books I read this month. I read a couple of thrillers which is not usually my thing but I liked them a lot. I decided I’m definitely a romantic comedy person.
The Two Lives of Lydia Bird Josie Silver
The Guest List Lucy Foley
The Night Swim Megan Goldin
The Year Shakespeare Ruined My Life by Dani Jensen
I’m ready for my October reads (I’ll show you my list of possibilities soon) and to continue my steak of amazing reads!
QOTD: What book did you enjoy the most in September?
Funny thing when I moved I really thought I changed my address on everything. I didn’t 🙈 and then I clicked check out without even double checking 😂😂😂Thanks to the lovely customer service peeps at #botm I received my box late but totally worth it.Both of these books are all over the place and I want to devour both of them lol.
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.
