It's All About The Books!

Finished these over this long yummy relaxing weekend...

YA...dark and creepy but really good! Think scary Winged Things...yes!

Loved this book...remember that movie where this girl wanted to be like her friend so much that she almost became her? This book wasn't like that at it reminded me of that movie! It was creepy good...a yummy mystery!
This one? What a surprise! North Dakota...farms...Norwegians! Yes...Norwegians! Pie making...lefse making farm people! I have not read a clean absorbing mystery like this in ages! The central character...Marjorie...was an indexer...I had to look this up! This book took place in the 1960's and she was the person who indexed complicated books! No internet, no laptops...just libraries and typewriters!
I loved this book! Marjorie sometimes smoked was like watching a North Dakota version of Mad Men! I am gushing over this one! I think it is the start of a series!
Just a few new books...Seriously? I cannot resist books with cakes on the covers...ever!
Hopefully another great mystery!
I am a little worried about this one but it sounds interesting...different...and it has that "elite" school thing going that I can never resist!
Reading these...yep...two at a time! I have read amazing stuff about this book ...I am not sure about the Gillian Flynn reference...but it sounds good!
Relationships...islands...dysfunction? Count me in! Plus it's a "a romantic page-turner propelled by the sixty-year secret that has shaped two families, four lovers, and one seaside resort community."
Den and I are cleaning together...he is doing the upstairs bathroom...I just put away a massive basket of towels and sheets...vacuumed the entire upstairs...dusted the entire upstairs...and I am making him his fave lunch...lettuce wraps from Kalyn's I am making pizzas for dinner.

Happy Monday!




  1. Any man who will clean a bathroom is a keeper!

  2. Well, it looks like you changed genres. Most of these sre pretty creepy! Hope you enjoy them!

    1. Lol...creepy is better than depressing! Lol! You would love the one about was awesome!

  3. Wow, I always wonder where you find these books, most of which I've never heard of? I have heard of The Rocks (which I'm getting from Vine) and The Luckiest Girl Alive, but it didn't come up on NetGalley or Vine....just curious.

    Love the food!

  4. Nice assortment of books! And the lettuce wraps, yummy! Re: See Also Murder, Lark from The Bookwyrm's Hoard blog is an indexer, so I knew what it was from asking her. Though I doubt she is anything like Marjorie :)
    I would like Stone Cold Dead and In a Dark, Dark Wood, I think.
