When I finish my current book (likely tomorrow), I will have read all three of my TBR List poll choices for the month of February. It's been awhile since I last managed that! I currently am reading Pressed to Death by Kirsten Weiss, the second book in her Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum cozy mystery series. It's set in small town wine country, right outside of my old stomping grounds, Sacramento, California. I fell in love with the first book in the series and am enjoying this second book.

I was going to jail.
My thoughts: I couldn't help but wonder what trouble Maddie had landed herself in on the very first page of the book.

My thoughts: Our handsome Detective Slate asks a very good question, but is Maddie ready to lay all of her cards on the table? I am guessing not, knowing her. Not yet, at least.
What do you think? Does this sound like something you would be interested in reading?
Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Each week, Carrie at The Butterfly Reads and Laura from Blue Eye Books ask participants to list what they like and don't like about that week's topic.
This week's topic is the My First and Last Reads as a Book Blogger.
Another not my the first book I reviewed on my blog, Thrity Umrigar's Bombay Time was the first book I read when I began blogging in July of 2006.
The last (or most recent) book I finished reading (a re-read for the umpteenth time) was Ed Vere's Max the Brave, one of my daughter's favorite books. Technically, she read it to me, but I read along. That counts right?
What was the first and last (as of today, anyway) book you read as a book blogger?
