I thought long and hard about what I could do special for my 1000th post but came up with nothing. So much so, that I missed a day of just updating reviews obsessing. Then I realised I was being too hard on myself and if it did not come naturally to celebrate the occasion I… Continue reading April 2020 Books Vs Moods – My 1000th post!!
I have read and reviewed two other books by this author recently (looks like I am on a bit of a binge!) Although our library's online catalogue is not as vast as I would want it to be when it comes to old authors (they are pretty up to date on current trends), I… Continue reading The Case of the Constant Suicides (Dr. Gideon Fell #13) by John Dickson Carr
I have to preface my review by saying that this is a very US-centric book. This factor was not something I paid attention to as I chose it. That did not change much for me since I am relatively updated on the goings-on in the US (as any person on the outside of a country… Continue reading We Should Improve Society Somewhat by Matt Bors
The libraries have finally announced they are opening partially next week. It means I am going to finally buckle down and start reading the ones I have had all this time that they have been closed.

We go back a bit to see how the latter came about and what the current year means to her. Lottie is a little insecure about… Continue reading My Year of Saying No by Maxine Morrey
I read, liked and reviewed the previous book of the series : I felt like this was the case of a story that did not really need a sequel. Although I enjoyed the author's writing, it did not have the same effect on me as the first one did. It can be read as a… Continue reading Mum’s Big Break by Louise Emma Clarke
I have had this book on my virtual shelf for a very long time. Given my tendency to try any graphic novel that looks even mildly interesting, I end up picking up more than I can chew at any given time. One of the main reasons I initially struggled with was the length, I had… Continue reading Forbidden Harbor by Teresa Radice
Books set in periods I am unfamiliar with, even more, if they have actually been published in decades before even my parents were born (originally published 1959) usually feel a lot more similar to each other. This one stood out with its content as well as the leading duo! This is a police procedural… Continue reading Murder to Music by Margaret Newman
