Book Read this Month  - 4


Cozy Mystery - 1
Fiction - 1
Romantic Suspense 1
Thriller - 1

New authors:

Maggie Sefton ( Defintely read more of her books)

I continue with two of my favorite series. Both were excellent.  I start a new series ( Maggie Sefton cozy mysteries.  I am hoping to read more of all three of these books soon.

 Favorite book of this month,

All of them were great, but I think if I had to choose it would be have to be Ready to Die by Lisa Jackson, there were just so many twists and turns and she writes so well.

Week In Review

I am linking up at two places, Book Date( It's Monday, what are you reading) and Sunday Post.

Today is the first day of It's Monday, what are you reading with the new host,  Kathryn from Book Date.  I have been following her blog for almost a year. I am know you will do well with it.

It was a fun weekend, we went to a pumpkin patch on Saturday and my daughter loved it, except when I try to take pictures of course.  There was animals there and she was feeding a goat and loved it. We then went to my parents for a potluck on Sunday so that was fun.

Finished this week:

Great book.

Couldn't finished:

I try to read it, but I just couldn't get into the book. So I decided to stop, as I have too many books to read.

Currently reading:

I am really enjoying this book! It has been a while since I read this series, so I was happy to read it!!

Up next to read: ( Yes there are some christmas books, I probably won't get to them until November, but I wanted to put them on here so I remember those are the ones I want to read)

Genre: Woman Fiction
Rating 4/5
Review:  I really like this book, I like how it was a easy read.  Every chapter title had how many steps the character did which I thought was cool.  There was a little romance for the main character which I thought was nice, but it didn't take away from the story about the three woman that became good friends. Look forward to reading from this author.

Genre: Cozy Mystery
Rating 4/5
Is this part of a series - yes
Review:  I really enjoy this series, this is the first time I read this author and this series, even though this wasn't the first book in the series, you could understand it.  I love all the characters and I can't wait to read more to this series!
