My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I got into this book right away. About a third of the through, I had it figured out. I thought. I did not. I suspected what happened at several points in the book. I really didn’t have it fully figured out until the last chapter.

I enjoyed being in suspense the whole time. The book kept me captivated. I am going to have to find more of the author’s books.

Prepping for vacation

I have an upcoming vacation. I am doing the last minute things, even though it’s not really last minute yet.

I went to purchase what I need for the trip. I haven’t quite finished, but I got the majority done.

I tried to get a mani pedi done, but I ended up getting called in to go to work, so only the pedi got done.

I got to work and finished up on record time. Then I went to buy sunglasses for the trip. I am almost ready! I am planning on getting the manicure soon.

I also found a lot of memes and book related photos to write about when I’m away. I am sure I’ll have time to write, so I’ll publish when I’m back. At least I don’t have to think about what I’m going to write about. I’ll figure out other topics, too, while I’m away. Always thinking…

The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, by Stuart Turton

The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really liked the concept of this book. Trying to solve a murder by playing a character in the story. Each day, a different character, using that character’s skill sets to figure out whodunit. I was definitely thrown for a loop by the twists and turns. They kept me guessing the whole time. I really didn’t see the main twist coming. I loved it!

Harry Potter series

I adored the whole series, but the later books had more substance, I think.  I have seen more people admit to not reading the series in the past few months than I have since the books were first published.

My daughter finished the series when she was in second grade. The last book took her a day and a half to read. She came up for air to eat and use the restroom. She loved them.

Guest blogger topics

We decided that we’d write on some of the same topics. Some of the options are 1)book you read as a child but reread as an adult. 2)Favorite movie based on a book. 3)Worst movie based on a book. 4)Movie that follows the book closely.

There will be more topics coming up, and not all of will write on all of the topics, but we’re going to attempt it.
