To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Harry Potter and in conjunction with the Wizarding World Book Club, I chose to listen to HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE for the first time. Narrated by Jim Dale the tale once again came to life and I was lost to it.
Coffee Pot Reviews are mini reviews done in the length of time it takes to brew a pot of coffee. Today I have a mix of books that I listened to or read in December from my TBR pile. Grab a cup of coffee and a muffin, curl up and enjoy!
The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman is the third book in the Invisible Library fantasy series. Cogman once again took us on a maddening adventure as Librarian Irene and her loyal friends faced down danger. Imaginative and suspenseful with a touch of magic and science fiction the worlds of the Invisible Library are ones I want to visit again and again.
A Lowcountry Christmas by Mary Alice Monroe is the fifth novel in her popular Lowcountry Summer series. This was my first experience with both and Monroe delighted me with this story as she shared one family’s struggles. It’s almost Christmas and finances are tight bringing disappointment to their youngest as their oldest son struggles with PTSD.
To Love and to Cherish by Lauren Layne is the final book in the Wedding Belles and oh, what fun it was! This is Alexis Morgan’s story and there has been a build up throughout the series with a certain British accountant. Layne delivered with this romantic ride!
Today I once again have Sophia Rose visiting us from Delightful Readers to share a wonderful review. Today she has A Moment Forever, a WWII romance to share with us. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy.
Please Ms. Grant may I have another? The Newsflesh trilogy and all the short stories set in this world are among my favorite books, so when I learned Feedback would be a new full-length novel set in the Newsflesh world I may have done a little dance in my kitchen. Feedback (Newsflesh #4) takes place during the same period as Feed the first book in the trilogy. It introduces us to a new group of reporters, and like everything Grant touches, it was gold.
In Curse of Tenth Grave by Darynda Jones, the tenth book in the deliciously funny and suspenseful Charley Davidson series Charley is home solving cases and reaping. The events of the previous novel are weighing on Charley. Completely addictive with reveals, twists, and characters I prefer to call friends, Jones had me flipping pages into the wee hours of the night.
Bright Blaze of Magic is the last book in Jennifer Estep’s urban fantasy trilogy Black Blade. Action packed; with intense struggles over evil, our heroine leads the charge in restoring order to Cloudburst Falls.
Today I am excited to share Renegade and Desperado by Lisa Bingham, the first two books in her Taggart Brothers series. Yep, I said BROTHERS and you know how much I adore series based on brothers. Did I mention they are cowboys? Yea-ha. First up is Renegade the second and newest book in the series. Both books work as standalone but I encourage you to read them both!
