Judgement Call - E.B. Roshan

 

So when I agreed to read this novella, I had no idea it was book 5. I have to admit, as I started reading, I felt like I was missing something. It took off right away, and I felt a little lost. Reading the previous books probably makes a difference.
With that said, I did start to enjoy the story in the end of the book. It took a moment to understand what was happening. Having no backstory, I didn't understand why one guy was mad at the others. Or why he wanted to enact revenge so bad. I did learn it at the very end and was good with it.
Kiva is my favorite character, which is crazy since I disliked him for most of the story. I thought he was a little controlling at first but that died off when he did what he did. He became the hero.
I wish I had time to read the other stories because I feel like as a whole the series would be fantastic. I just started in the wrong spot.

The Quiche Of Death - M.C. Beaton
The Quiche of Death - M.C. Beaton
After reading a book so far ahead in the Hamish McBeth series and loving it, I decided to see what the author's books were really all about and find a series starter. I found a deal for this Agatha Raisin starter and decided to give it a try. Right from the get-go, it grabbed me. I love the spunk of Miss Raisin and just know she is going to be a character that sticks with me. And she certainly does!
I have to admit, it would have been a 5 star read had I not known from the start who the killer was. I had a niggling suspicion all along and when it turned out to be so I was slightly disappointed. Odd, but I didn't want to be right. The book would have ended a lot sooner though had it not played out the way it did.
I definitely need to continue this series! Agatha is a character made for me!

A Gift Of Joy And Hope - Pope Francis

 

I am a Catholic, though not devout.
Still, when I had the opportunity to read Pope Francis' book I couldn't resist. He is the most encouraging and modern Pope. I looked forward to what would lay within these pages.
I also didn't know what I would get other than words of encouragement and inspiration to chase my faith. Which I got exactly that and yet I was still surprised. 
I guess there was a naïve part of me that hoped for more personal accounts to connect the motivations to his life. How can you teach without also learning?
It was a good read, but one I know most may not partake in. They should though. Even if you are not religious. It can help in times of woe, need and just a general pick-me-up.
This is definitely a great book when you need a spiritual awakening.

The Laguna Shores Research Club - Laura Kelly Robb

 

I was really into this book and then the ending happened.
The ending was rushed. Like we went from the arrest at the crime scene to the courtroom in a flash, and I'm still wondering how it got there so fast. It came together, but I still wasn't a fan of that ending.
The ending didn't ruin the story though, no matter how rushed it was.
The rest of the book was intense, intriguing and a page-turner. You were invested in the story and needed the details.
Hopefully the next book has a better ending but I will definitely continue.

Evidence Of The Affair - Taylor Jenkins Reid

 

This was my first time reading a story of letters, and I loved it!
What a clever way to tell a story, and done so incredibly well. I believed in all of these people and the feelings they held. It really takes you on a roller coaster ride!
For such a small story it has a huge impact!
I definitely want to read more from this talented author, who this was also my first from her.
Big double thumbs up from me!
