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!

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.

Friday Reads 10.13.2017
To Fudge or Not to Fudge - Nancy CoCo
Invictus - Ryan Graudin
And Then There Were Nuns: League of Literary Ladies - Kylie Logan
Cheddar Off Dead (An Undercover Dish Mystery) - Julia Buckley

Happy Friday!

 

I am almost done with To Fudge or Not to Fudge and it's very, very good. 

 

After that, I am going to attempt to read some sci-fi with Invictus

 

After then it'll probably be back to a cozy.

 

No huge weekend plans- which is ok by me. The hubby and I will get some laundry done and cleaning. Always cleaning. And we need to catch up on Dr. Who. Oh yeah and baseball- how can I forget baseball?

 

Finally we are getting some fall weather - but it's going to be 80s on Sunday. I think the earth is confused. 

 

Happy Reading!

AND THEN THERE WERE NUNS by Kylie Logan
And Then There Were Nuns: League of Literary Ladies - Kylie Logan

Homage to Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None (10 Little Indians).  Follows the original very well.  Who would want to kill a nun?  Why?  As Bea and the rest of the Literary Ladies look for clues, Bea's secret comes out as does Levi's.  I enjoyed this story.  Chandra is as crazy as ever and the reason is a hoot.  Hank trusts the Literary Ladies and they do what they do best.  I liked the librarians who were staying at Bea's.  Well done.  I look forward to reading the next book.
