Book 57/100: Goodnight, Goodnight, Sleepyhead by Ruth Krauss
Goodnight Goodnight Sleepyhead - Ruth Krauss,Jane Dyer

This is a fairly typical "goodnight" board book in which a child says goodnight to everything (goodnight toes, goodnight stuffed animals, etc.) before finally going to bed. Really cute illustrations.

Cozy mystery with no cat or dog on the cover
Goodnight Nobody - Jennifer Weiner

I picked Goodnight Nobody for Cozy Mystery square.

 

 

An unsolved murder of a woman in suburbia. 

 

I have this for ages in the TBR pile. But this is really not my usual cup of tea and I would leave this on the self for another few years if it is not for this Halloween Bingo. 

 

Now start reading. I hope this wouldn't be a fast read. 

 

Oh crap. 

 

This woman Kate character is annoying and stupid. She found a dead body and there is a clue. What she did with the clue? She pocketed it before the police could find it.

 

Why? Because the clue involved her ex-fd. She is now married with children and when there was a note with her ex-fd no on it, instead of allowing the police to their work, she hide the evidence. 

 

Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. 

 

She told this to her friend Janie. Janie is also a stupid woman who called the murder fabulous because it is a juicy story. What horrible, airheads are these characters? 

 

What's wrong with them? 

 

Excerpt:
"As far as my fellow mommies were concerned, saying you were bored was admitting to being about two steps away from drowning your babies in the bathtubs, something so sinful and forbidden you could never 'fess up to it'. But here I was, 'fessing', "I;m bore, and this murder, while horrifying, is also the single most interesting thing that's happened here...".

 

I hate this book. 

 

What's wrong with this woman?

 

Why is she so pathetic? She had sex with her husband, and not satisfied. Instead of finding help with the relationship, she kind of get on with it.  

 

This is boring me to tears. 

 

These women are pathetic, annoying, and so full of crap.  I hate this book. Katie bumped into Evan, her ex-bf. 

 

Seriously? Even characters in books should have a mind to nurture, and think of something other than how she look and going after handsome men.

 

These two women are insufferable. The murder investigation progress slowly. Evan finally fond her and want to rekindle their relationship even when he knew she is married. 

 

The best friend Janie get revenge on the ex-bf Evan because he wanted to marry his current gf? Seriously. Selfish, illogical, inconsiderate, reacting without really thinking through on what they were doing. 

 

Horrible book. I don't understand who would like this kind of story when women are stupid bitches, and men are just handsome body with dick. 

 

Bad mother and horrible bitch this Katie character is. She act like she is privileged and demand everyone to accommodate to her needs. She bully her way in the bus and asked men to give her seats for her and her children. I hope there is no such woman in real life or I would have to tell this bitch that it is her own fault that she got pregnant and didn't get an abortion. Having children is her choice and she has to live wit that decision, no one else has to be inconvenienced for her poor life choice. They don't have to give up their seats for this bitch or her young-lings.   

 

She didn't really detect but get wide swing and missed, while getting herself and her friend in danger. 

 

The ending is a bit fast and no clue would bring you to that conclusion. It is a mess and only the 3rd chapter is readable as it contain less stupid bitch stuff. 

I really don't get why men, Ben the husband, Evan the ex-bf, would want anything to do with such pathetic stupid woman. This is anti-feminist kind of book. 

  

Horrible horrible book. Do not read this book as you it would give you wrong impression of what American women are like in real life. 

 

This book give a disservice to full time mom, working mom, and men. The men in this book is nothing more than cardboard character from some boxer ads. Horrible. Lack of imagination and understanding of how the world work.

 

Shallow. That's the word I would use to describe the world view of this book. Shallow.

"Goodnight from London", by Jennifer Robson
Goodnight from London: A Novel - Jennifer Robson

Ms. Robson historical fiction was inspired by the memoirs of her grandmother Myra Moir, a reporter, who worked on the women’s pages of the News-Herald. The author in her latest will transport us to London in the midst of the Blitzkrieg.

1940, American journalist Ruby Sutton gets her big break and moves to London to report on the Second World War as a staff member for Picture Weekly. But life in besieged Britain will test Ruby in ways unimaginable.

In a heartbeat I was immersed in a women’s fiction with strong romantic elements and fascinating accounts of life in England. The protagonist profession is a true part of the story I enjoyed particularly. It was much more than a simple filler, it was an excellent exploration of journalism as it was during that time: daring interviews nicely depicted. While in London, Ruby forms bonds with many friends and depends on their kindness to keep her going and since “Goodnight from London “is a mix of suspense and romance of course what else can we expect but to have Ruby fall for a captain in the military….. awe….Their romance was sweet and engaging as it slowly moved forward.

Ruby is one of those gutsy heroines that caught my interest from the first page, joining her is the slew of supporting cast that are equally captivating. It surely helps that they are likable characters. The authors’ prose and research shines through and it is easy to be pulled in especially when the ravished city is so expertly described. Closing each chapter are bits and pieces of articles that Ruby writes the words start by ”Dispatched from London by Miss Ruby Sutton” and her article is dated…..

This is a cozy and enjoyable read

I received a complimentary copy from HarperCollins through the Earlier Reviewer Program.

Goodnight Moon
Goodnight Moon - Margaret Wise Brown,Clement Hurd

AD360L

Pre K-K

Goodnight Moon is about a young rabbit who wants to tell everything goodnight before he goes to bed.  He travels a long way to tell the moon goodnight.  I would love to use this book as an introduction to poetry.  The book has many rhyming words and would be easy for students to relate to.

4 stars

Goodnight My Angel - Sue Brown

"Are you shitting me? We get blown up again?"
 
Yes, that's the kind of book this is. Guns, knives, car chases and things getting blown up or set on fire.

Josh and Cal are once again chasing unknown bad guys killing off Agency people or their partners. No one's talking and there is danger around every corner. This whole cat and mouse game was highly entertaining.
The romance takes a back seat to the suspense but it is still there; not just for Josh and Cal but for Jesse and Dan as well who continue to play large roles in the story.
I really love all of these guys.

And then there was the ending. Ah, the ending. Major spoiler:

Which does NOT deserve that name because major f... CLIFFHANGER! I f... hate that! If I know a book has a cliffhanger, I don't touch the series until all books are published. In this case, I unfortunately didn't know and will now have to wait months for the next part. Months during which this one will fade in my memory and I will waste a lot of energy on 'where were we?' when the next one comes out and that is just so seriously annoying.

(spoiler show)
