Dewey Read-a-thon Autumn 2018 - Reading Plans
Leverage in Death - J.D. Robb
In Her Bones - Kate Moretti
Croc's Return (Bitten Point Book 1) - Eve Langlais
Killer Countdown (Man on a Mission) - Amelia Autin
Mr. Churchill's Secretary - Susan Elia MacNeal

Goals:

1. Reading time will be measured using the stopwatch feature on my phone. The start time in England is 1pm, which is perfect for me. The hard part is trying to stay awake when it gets dark out so early here (sunset at around 5:45pm). 

    a. Standard - 12 hours

    b. Stretch #1 - 15 hours

    c. Stretch #2 - 18 hours

 

2. Finish at least two books and work on two more books, all for Halloween Bingo. All the other books will work to get two bingos out of my card when the squares are called (if not already called), and a possible third bingo by the end of the month. Writing the reviews on Monday night.

      a. Finish Leverage in Death by JD Robb (New Releases)

      b. Finish In Her Bones by Kate Moretti (Modern Noir)

      c. Read Croc's Return by Eve Langlais (Shifters)

      d. Read Mr. Churchill's Secretary by Susan Ella MacNeal (Darkest London)

      e. Start Killer Countdown by Amelia Autin (Romantic Suspense)

 

 

3. Post here and at IG with updates about every three hours. I would like to participate in 2-3 mini challenges. I'm using this as my master post and will update the title and post timestamp along with my updates.

quote 2018-10-19 11:30
Rory never was any good at keeping Bradley from his thoughts. And damned if he wouldn't do anything – even give him up for good – that Bradley wanted. He had no self control, no care to how it would affect himself or how it would make him feel. If Bradley said jump, he wouldn't even stop to ask how high. He'd just do it. A snap of the fingers and his will shredded to pieces. Because Bradley held the string that tugged at his heart and controlled him. All he had to do was use it.

Never Let Me Go, by Elaine White

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Walk With Me (Home #7) by Cardeno C.
Walk With Me (Home Book 7) - Cardeno C.

Walk With Me is the last book in the Home series, and we finish with Eli and Seth. Eli has wanted Seth ever since he first laid eyes on him at the tender age of 11. Seth didn't have much to do with Eli then, and only really comes into frequent contact with him when he becomes an associate Rabbi, working with Eli's dad.

 

These two have an insta-love AND slow-burn romance, and it was perfect for them. I loved how Eli decided he would sooner have Seth's friendship than lose him. This is a funny book, with some absolutely hilarious weddings! Poor Seth is all I can say. Throughout all the capers and calamities that occur, Eli is there for Seth, and vice versa.

 

As I would expect from a Cardeno C. book, there were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pacing was smooth, with a rich and detailed storyline that was backed up by fully fleshed out characters with their own quirks.

 

Sad to see this series end, but at least I can now re-read them all. Definitely recommended by me.

 

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

Buffy The Vampire Slayer (picture book)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Jim Smith

This was the cutest picture book. It is the perfect way to introduce a child into the world of Buffy and when they are older force them to watch all the episodes. I loved looking for the little details that would make any Buffy fan smile in delight, or in my case grin like a dork and make a giggle sound. You see familiar faces of people Buffy goes up against in the show and her little pig stuffed animal, Mr. Gordo!

 

The illustrations by Kim Smith are so adorable. As this is meant for children the canon is changed; it is the cute, innocent version of Buffy. I loved it. I'm an adult who still loves picture books, children books, young adult, and adult books, too. (and that will never change!)
