Mine For the Week (Wild Love) by Erika Kelly
Mine for the Week (Wild Love Book 2) - Erika Kelly

 

Head, heart and humor collide to upend love as we know it.  For Sophie and Ryan instant attraction has changed the course of their lives.  Now they have to decide to listen to reason or let their hearts lead the way.  Ms. Kelly hit a home run with Mine for the Week. There's a sweetness to the story that gives it an almost ethereal quality and the passionate side gives off that addictive hint of naughty.  A MUST HAVE READ!

And Then There Were None
And Then There Were None - Agatha Christie

OF COURSE I've heard of the grand dame of mystery, Agatha Christie, but have I ever taken the time to read any of her books? Nope. Thank you Halloween Bingo for giving me an incentive to try something new.

 

And Then There Were None is in many ways the archetype of a closed-circle mystery.  And I'm glad it was my first introduction to the genre.  

 

 

I don't know whether other Agatha Christie titles will make it to the top of my enormous list of things I would love to have read, but it's definitely a possibility.

I Think I Love You - Allison Pearson

I really liked this mainly because I could relate to Petra and Sharon. Like them, I had unhealthy infatuations with celebrities who have no idea I exist. In fact, I still have these obsessions (I’m still waiting for Tim Lincecum to marry me).

 

As for the storyline, I liked how it included the perspectives of both Petra and Bill. You got to see two different sides to the David Cassidy mania.

 

Overall, I enjoyed this novel and its insights into fangirl culture circa 1974.

The Thin Man - Halloween Bingo Classic Noir Buddy Read
The Thin Man - Dashiell Hammett

I have mixed feelings about The Thin Man.

 

On the positive side, I have now read another classic novel that I probably wouldn't of even considered picking up if not for Halloween Bingo. Noir is commonly associated with movies. I can appreciate the moments of wonderful dialog sprinkled throughout that likely translated well to the screen and saw how Hammett was thinking cinematically as he created the story.

 

On the negative side, I didn't care much about the characters and was confused too much of the time. I don't think the story has aged well, both the pacing and the roles of women don't work as well in 2017 as they might have in 1933.  

 

 

 

I'll be counting this towards the Classic Noir square, which while it hasn't been called yet, is strategically placed on my card.
