Thank you to everyone who voted in my October TBR List Poll! The results are coming to you a bit late after a rather busy weekend. My brother and his wife were in town visiting, and I wasn't able to get to the computer.
My TBR List is a meme hosted by the awesome Michelle at Because Reading. It’s a fun way to choose a book from your TBR pile to read. The 1st Sunday of every month, I will list 3 books I am considering reading and take a poll as to which you think I should read. I will read the winner that month, and my review will follow. While I will attempt to post my review that same month, I make no promises--it may go up the following month.
October's TBR List choices were all cozy mysteries. Five (20%) of you voted for The Madness of Mercury by Connie Di Marco and another seven (28%) cast votes for The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum by Kirsten Weiss. Julia Buckley's A Dark and Stormy Murder won by an overwhelming thirteen votes (52%).
I am looking forward to read it this month. Thank you again for voting! I thought I would go ahead and give you (and me) a look into A Dark and Stormy Murder. The temptation to take a peek is too great. I will be starting the book as soon as I finish my current read.
Every Tuesday Diane from Bibliophile By the Sea First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros, where participants share the first paragraph (or a few) of a book they are reading or thinking about reading soon. It is also where I share my first impressions about the book I am sharing.
I was immersed in The Lost Child, one of my favorite Camilla Graham novels, when an unlikely phone call changed my life.
In my quiet living room, things were placid: I sat on my couch in blue jeans, a sweatshirt, and fuzzy socks, cuddling my sleeping cat Lestrade, whose large body practically warmed my entire right side. In the book, things were tense: it was dusk, and the Eiffel Tower gleamed gold in the background.
Every Tuesday, Jenn from Books And A Beat hosts Teaser Tuesdays at which time participants grab their current read, open to a random page, and share two (2) "teaser" sentences from that page while avoiding any spoilers.
Teaser from 16% of A Dark and Stormy Murder:
I stood up and took a step back, suddenly horrified to be touching him. I could already hear the sirens blaring; Camilla's call had gotten a quick response.
What do you think? Would you keep reading?
