It by Stephen King

I have no coherent thoughts after finishing this book, or if I do, they are all jumbled up in my head. I am going to have the biggest book hangover. That ending, though!

4 only because Stephen King does have this odd way of writing certain things, and there was one scene I wasn't personally comfortable with.

Overall, his writing style is enjoyable. The story was so much more than the miniseries, which I saw first.

 

 

Not relating to the book content at all, but I can't decide which cover I like the most!

My first filled square!
Behold, Here's Poison - Georgette Heyer

I had been sort of planning to use this one for the free square, but since OBD called 
"cozy mystery" this morning, and nothing could be cozier than this mystery, I can't resist actually filling a square!

 

I do prefer Heyer's regency romances to her mysteries. This one was more enjoyable than the other two that I've read, though, and reminded me a lot of an Agatha Christie. It's a solid three stars, with many of the usual cozy tropes.

 

The characters all initially appear to be the typical poisonous, grasping types that we see in this style of mystery. Ultimately, at least Stella and Randall end up having more there than meets the eye. There was a point in the book where I made the note "wanker" next to some of Randall's dialogue. By the end of the book, he had grown on me considerably.

 

And, as is often the case, the "victim" in this case ends up to be the worst of the lot.

Here Comes the Bride (Chapel of Love) by Hope Ramsay
Here Comes the Bride (Chapel of Love) - Hope Ramsay

 

Discovering author Hope Ramsay is delightful.  She puts her heart and soul into her stories and the results are an enlightening experience.  Here Comes the Bride is a sweet take on getting even.  Revenge has never been so deliciously satisfying. Laurie and Andrew deliver a kick to the funny bone and a tingling within the heart.   This is one author who knows how to make the heart happy.  Even in the darkest of moment there's always a brighter side. Words to live by and a romance that is hard to forget.

Wish You Were Here: A Novel - Renée Carlino

Oh, this book. There were times I was SO frustrated with Charlotte and times she actually had me crying. I actually cried through several parts of this book. And, when I finished, I cried some more.

This was such a heart rending story. I absolutely LOVED it. I knew something was up with Adam almost right away, but my guess about his issue was totally wrong. Yay!! The characters were so real and had me totally mesmerized and engrossed in their world. 

A story about love, loss, growing up, and somewhat cheesy at times, that I absolutely loved and enjoyed.

Huge thanks to Atria Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
