November 2017 books on my list

November 3, 2017 2017, books on my list . . . 4

I keep a list of all the books I might want to read and add to it as the year goes on. As each month comes along I create a list on my blog for others and for me to keep track of asthe months go by. I don’t buy all these books–since I already have way too many books to read and some of the new books are expensive. I’m trying to stick to a budget. I hope people reading my post may find some new books to read. I also hope these people will point me toward books I missed. November 1 A Long Way Down by Ken… Read more »

Putting the mystery into historical

Putting the mystery into historical

September 2, 2017 2017, Audiobooks, B+, book rating, reviews 8

Delivering the Truth by Edith Maxwell Quaker Midwife Mystery #1 Setting: 1888, Massachusetts mill town Narrator: Michael Page Rose Carroll is the Quaker midwife and I really enjoyed reading about her. The life of a midwife in that era is fascinating as is reading about Quaker life in this town. I think she is something of an anomaly since she’s a midwife and unmarried at 26, but she sticks to her beliefs without being obnoxious. Rose boards with her brother-in-law and family. Her sister died not too long before the book starts and Rose helps with cooking and cleaning when she can as do the oldest children. She also wants… Read more »

Watching the Detectives by Julie Mulhern Series: The Country Club Murders #5 Publication date: May 23 e-ARC (from NetGalley and the publisher) –All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

Things go from bad to worse when she finds Mr. White in the dining room killed with a candlestick.

Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon Update

Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon Update

November 12, 2016 2016, Read-a-Thons 2

This week I’m participating in the Ho-Ho-H0 Readathon (from Nov 9 – 15). It’s hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and is so much fun. I finished my first book! The Magic of Christmas by Sarah Morgan I enjoyed The Magic of Christmas. It’s a Harlequin Medical Romance which is the Harlequin line I like the most. Sarah Morgan is also one of my favorite contemporary romance authors. I like the medical aspects of the book (in a London Emergency Department). I also really like the Christmas aspects of the book and the two young girls in the book–Dr. Christian Blake’s daughters. He’s a handsome doctor in the ED… Read more »

November books on my list

November books on my list

November 4, 2016 2016, books on my list . . . 2

These are the November books on my list. Each month I keep a list of books that interest me based on the author, synopsis, genre or sometimes just the cover! My favorite genres: Mysteries–especially police procedurals; Science Fiction–especially military science fiction and space opera; Fantasy–especially urban fantasy. I don’t buy all these books since I already have lots of books to read and I feel lucky if I get 10 books read each month. But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of the books. I hope people reading my post may find some new books to interest them… Read more »
