January Reading…|So Far

Good afternoon everyone! I am just stopping by to let you know how much I have read so fafr this month! I still can’t believe that it is 2018! Seriously, that is mind boggling to me. Well, let’s get to it!

This was the fourth installment of the Harmony Cafe Series. Trouble has hit Autumn’s town again. This time, it’s aliens. Or is it?

I feel like this book was filled with so much potential as most of this series is, which is why keep reading it.

However, I feel like Autumn and her ex-husband’s rivalry is childish and isn’t well written. I also feel like the author is telling me things and not showing them to me.

The characters need to have more depth. I need to feel for the characters. Which isn’t the case in this series.

I will continue to read the next book to see if as the series advances maybe so does the author’s writing. I really do like the idea of this series which is why I picked it up. But I was not shocked by the ‘whodunit’ aspect. The plot was rushed and sort of everywhere.

I know that this is supposed to be a short story type of Cozy, but I still need a little bit more detail and twist.

This was such a fun and quick read. Two of my, now, favorite amateur sleuths meet as kindred women. I love that they had a mystery to solve as well! It wasn’t enough for me though. I craved more. Which is what I think was Ellie’s thought process. Leaving us wanting.

If you haven’t read Death on Tap, Sloan’s first Mystery, I highly suggest it. I love getting anything and everything that Ellie puts out into the world.

A fun short read. You do need to know that the story is finished at 35% and the rest of the book is a sneak peek into Death on Tap.

 

16000243If you follow my blogs, the reviews, or my youtube channel, I have a slight addiction to Cozy Mysteries. Okay, maybe not SLIGHT…a HUGE addiction to Cozies. But more specifically, I have a weakness for cooking and magical mysteries. They just tickle my fancy. My waist and my imagination expand while reading these types of books.

Bailey Cates’ Magical Bakery Mystery does this to me everytime. I crave what ever it is that Katie and Lucy are making in the Honeybee Bakery and I want to know more about the magic that Katie is learning about herself. Expecially since I’ve dabbled in it as well.

This is the third installment in the series and it was just as amazing as the first two. You dive more into Declan and Katie’s relationship. What it means to Katie to be a white witch, a pure witch. Is she a catalyst? So many questions.

While trying to put extra karma out in the world for herself Katie volutneers at with a conservation group trying to save extinct or endangered animals. She loves it even though she is working basically two jobs. Unfortunately, whether it was just a happanstance or if she really does cause these things to happen, someone from the conservation is killed.

Katie, surround by her coven, feels responsibile to figure out the ‘whodunit’, especially when it is not just her that is being threatened, but memebers of her Spell Book Club as well.

This was a delightful read. I love getting to know all of characters a little more as well as the AMAZING recipes at the back of the book. I can’t wait to try out the peanutbutter cookies.

Welp, that’s what I have read so far!!! What have you read so far? Make sure to follow my youtube channel and my instagram page for more bookish stuffs!
