Shatter The Bones
Shatter the Bones - Stuart MacBride

I won this book at Ezzulia and I was very pleased to win it, because I had heard such positive stories about the books bij Stuart MacBride. I couldn't wait to start with it. But, while reading, my enthusiasm got tempered.

Now, I've been thinking what to think about 'Shatter The Bones', but actually all I can say about is: average. Everything about it was in my opinion average. Story, setting, writing style, nothing was really remarkable... Yes, it was a detective story and it was nice and easy to read, but if you would ask me next year what the book was about, I probably couldn't give you an answer. I don't like that. I want to read stories I'll never forget after reading. But this isn't one of those. Unfortunately.

It's just average...

October Wrap Up!
Death in Dark Blue - Julia Buckley
The Quiche and the Dead (A Pie Town Mystery) - Kirsten Weiss
The Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People And The 8th Habit - Stephen R. Covey
And Then There Were Nuns: League of Literary Ladies - Kylie Logan
A Hope Divided (The Loyal League) - Alyssa Cole
A Sticky Inheritance (Maple Syrup Mysteries) (Volume 1) - Emily James
The English Wife - Lauren Willig
Positivity: Top-Notch Research Reveals the 3 to 1 Ratio That Will Change Your Life - Barbara L. Fredrickson

Time for a monthly wrap up!

 

So for the month of October, I read eight books. About average for me. 

 

The stars of the month were the non-fiction self-help books -  one a re-read, one a new find:

 

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and Positivity.  Both I highly recommend.

 

I read a few cozy mysteries and a historical romance/mystery.  They served their purpose as I had just moved and was adjusting to a new schedule. Their lightness offered some much-needed escapism. 

 

That being said, I did dive into a Netgalley read of historical fiction called The English Wife. I will post the review in December closer to publication date but it was only so-so for me. 

 

Honorable mention has to go to The Sunne in the Splendour which is outstanding. I should finish it in November as I have now read 80% of it. November should prove to be interesting. I have goals of reading some science fiction and more historical fiction.

 

Happy reading!

Seduced by Shark Shifters II: Logan's Tail (By the Water #2) by Rafe Jadison
Seduced by Shark Shifters II: Logan's Tail - Rafe Jadison
Logan's Tail is the second book in this series, and I can honestly say it didn't happen the way I thought it would! Logan is Sam's younger brother, and is sent to Suncoast to find out what's going on with his brother by his father. Not only that, but his father has also signed him up for a writing course without his knowledge. This means that he has to leave his best friend, Tom, behind which is more painful that he thought. When he arrives, he goes for a swim to relax, and meets up with a couple of people outside the roped off area. It is when he meets them again later on that the fun really starts! Like I said, this one didn't go the way I was expecting, but it was a thrilling read just the same. There is a lot of history explaining Logan and Tom's friendship so you know just how hard it is for them to be in different places. Sam and the twins are here, but obviously don't play as big a part as they did in their book.
 
This was exceedingly well written, with plenty of action, and no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pace was smooth and the tension real. I can't wait to see where this is going. Definitely recommended by me.

And Then There Were Nuns
And Then There Were Nuns - Kylie Logan

Author: Kylie Logan

Series: League of Literary Ladies #4

Rating: 3 stars

 

Enjoyable read. This series is about a group of women who are forced to meet together for a book club as the result of a court order. I'm not going to ruin the first book by telling you how that comes to be, as that was part of the fun of reading the first in this mystery series.

 

This third book was nice addition. Naturally the women have become friends and spend their time solving mysteries on their island. Their camaraderie and quirkiness carries the book along nicely. I definitely liked the twisty ending. And the progress on the romance front was good to read -  I liked that things are moving along even though there are obstacles now in the way. 

 

Would definitely recommend this series so far, it's one of the stronger cozy mystery series out there.
