Yes, Another Murder Mystery

I am loving this book! And yet again, I forgot I was reading a murder mystery until someone was dead. It was a shock. I’m always tickled when writers write about the magic of books. I mean, what good writer doesn’t know the power of words on paper, bound together, and placed on a shelf?Continue reading “Yes, Another Murder Mystery”

Murder Mystery Mood

Finished Brownies and Broomsticks today. I really appreciated the more down to earth approach to magic and spellwork. I especially liked the connection between quantum physics and magic. My only real issue is that there are two fellas equally interested in the protagonist and that scenario always makes me uncomfortable. She handles it well, though,Continue reading “Murder Mystery Mood”

A Magical Bakery Mystery and Knitting

I finally decided to go ahead and let myself read the books I really want to instead of not reading at all. I have every intention of continuing to make my way through Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, but it takes a lot of focus and I really want to knit at the same time.Continue reading “A Magical Bakery Mystery and Knitting”

Long Story: About Discovering a Good Book

It’s funny how you can forget what you like. As if the years of becoming push out what was. Only fragments remain, fluttering in the breeze of all the empty space. I was always an avid reader. Even before I learned to read, books called to me. In elementary school I was the kid inContinue reading “Long Story: About Discovering a Good Book”

I Bought More Books

I need to start devoting more time to reading. I’ve been so overwhelmed lately that I’ve been soothing myself with cross stitch and watching Downton Abbey for the hundredth time. The hyper focusing helps me quiet the inner monologue. I had planned on taking the girls to Barnes and Noble, and since my mom isContinue reading “I Bought More Books”

Post Apocalyptic Red Riding Hood

I finally finished this one and it did not disappoint. This was the kind of adventure that kept me reading on, trying to figure out the pieces. I admit to taking breaks. These end of the world stories often sweep me up and, considering the world’s and this country’s current condition, it could be aContinue reading “Post Apocalyptic Red Riding Hood”
