It was an alright read.
What the Woods Keep - Katya de Becerra

Really don't have much to say in regards to this book. I really didn't care for the characters so much. It wasn't the worst book in the world but it wasn't the best, it was just a ok book. I don't know what it was but I just didn't enjoy as much as I was anticipating. I can't even remember the characters names, and I don't really want to find the book, just to look up their names. I think it's because I read one of my absolute favorite books of the year before I finished this book, and that book was Strange Grace by Tessa Gratton. 

So just take my review at face value, and read it for yourself. I didn't like the ending of the book either, I don't know if there is going to be other books, or if this is a stand alone, but to me, the ending was left off in such away, that the story could be continued. 

Also I am going to try and review other books, that I have read and haven't gotten around to reviewing yet, or just forgot to review. So in the next day, and coming weeks, I am going to try and get all of them up on my blog.

Keystone Cops
Watcher in the Woods - Kelley Armstrong Watcher in the Woods - Kelley Armstrong

Found this story to be a jumble of characters with no real solutions. I will state that I have not read the previous books in this series, nor am I tempted. I nearly quit the book, but decided to continue, sometimes the story improves, not the case with this one.  This is a “who done it” with no finesse and reason, too much side story, too many characters, each with their own agenda and the reader is left with a “wtf” just happened and does it fit in the story.

Miss Liz's Passion by Sherryl Woods $1.99!!
Miss Liz's Passion: Miss Liz's PassionHome on the Ranch - Sherryl Woods,Allison Leigh

Elizabeth Gentry put all her passion into her students. Educating them, encouraging them, reaching them—that was easy. After the betrayal, the grief and the pain, there was a kind of peace in giving away her heart to her pupils.

That was what made Todd Lewis so dangerous. With his dogged determination and rugged handsomeness, he had slowly staked his own claim on her heart and made her feel again. Made her want to hope and dream. But her hopes, her dreams, her heart—were so fragile. Could she entrust them to him? Or would he destroy them for good?

Summary: In Tana French's powerful debut thriller, three children leave their small Dublin neighborhood to play in the surrounding woods. Hours later, their mothers' calls go unanswered. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children, gripping a tree trunk in terror, wearing blood-filled sneakers, and unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours. Twenty years later, Detective Rob Ryan - the found boy, who has kept his past a secret - and his partner Cassie Maddox investigate the murder of a twelve-year-old girl in the same woods. Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him, and that of his shadowy past. -Penguin, 2007.

Truly Devious for Baker Street Irregulars
Truly Devious - Maureen Johnson

This is weird and why I consider my own ratings to be bunk: In June I picked this up read the first chapter and abandoned it. Just wasn't what I felt like reading. But it was on the list for Baker Street Irregulars, and I usually like Johnson, so...and I made it to the second chapter and then I was reluctant to put it down. Loved it. So Gothic romance and Nancy Drew and Sherlock and a boarding school too. Nom nom nom. I liked Stevie even as she exasperated me.

 

 By this time seems like I should be better at telling the difference between Not for Me and Not for Now, but no. Midnight in the Garden was probably the first book I picked for this Bingo, and I gave up entirely. Twenty five or so years ago I loved it. Go figure.
