This is my stop in the blog tour for 'One Last Prayer for the Rays', and I have to tell you that I'm so excited about this book! Of course, I expected it to be good, otherwise I wouldn't have wanted to participate in the tour, but it was absolutely great! I enjoyed it very much. And that's pretty much to say, because when I started reading I wasn't even in the mood for reading a thriller (I just had to do it for the tour, because for some unexpected reasons, I didn't have time later), and guys, I am a huge mood-reader! This book managed to get me in the mood for reading its kind, and that's a huge achievement. So, here it is: this is my blog tour post of a 5-star rated book! 😉
Hey guys! 🙂 This is my stop on the 'Revenge on the Rye' blog tour! I haven't yet read any other book of this series (this is the fifth book), but it was absolutely enjoyable to read in itself. I still decided to read the other four books. And that must mean something good, right? … Continue reading Blog Tour: ‘Revenge on the Rye’ by Alice Castle (+International! Giveaway)
My second book by T. C. Wescott, and one in holiday spirit! I was so excited to read it a week before Christmas. Huge mug in my hand, hot beverage to drink, snow falling outside... it was PERFECT!
What better there is in a terrible, cold, wet weather (when all day seems to be evening and you can't decide if the thing falling from the grey clouds is rain or snow) than taking a journey into a mystery novel set in sweet and fun Hawaii? Well, I can think of a lot of things that are great to do, but this was definitely one of them!
If you're familiar with the classic children's novel 'Pollyanna', you know very well what the so-called 'glad game' is. (I wasn't...embarrassingly I had to look it up...) If not, I'll tell you in a nutshell: it's making yourself think of something you can be glad about, even in the worst of situations. It's basically thinking positive... it's a game of optimism. So when I read the title and the description of 'Sherlock Holmes and the Glad Game' (and then went and read about who this Pollyanna girl is...) I knew that I must read a book where Sherlock meets this game and this girl! Cynical, rational Sherlock and naive, optimist Pollyanna interact...? It must be hilarious!
A soft blanket, a hot beverage, a nice autumn day and a cozy mystery set in my beloved Paris... it's all set to a wonderful reading time! Or so I thought...
I'm always a huge fan of mysteries but I feel like I read more crime/mystery/thriller books in the autumn... maybe it's the cold days, longer nights, the whole atmosphere... Anyways, 'Still Lives' is another mystery book I read this autumn, and here are my thoughts on it. Grab a coffee, sit, read, and maybe then we can even discuss it! 😉
