November Mini Musings

Class Reunions are Deadly:  This was a cute and funny cozy mystery.  I really liked Poppy's character.  The mystery was engaging and not easy to solve.  It looks like there may be a set up for a love triangle.  I'm  kind of hoping it doesn't last too long into the series.  I do want to continue, however, I'm not a fan of the "who will she pick?" trope that lasts for books and books.  I do recommend this one.

Guest List:  This one took me a couple of tries before I ended up finishing the book.  In the end, I'm not sure I can say I really enjoyed the book.  None of the characters were very likable.  IT took forever to find out who even died.  I didn't care for the ending. I'm not sure I would recommend this one.

Fractured Tide: I did enjoy this YA Sci-fi/horror story.  I thought it was a unique premise. Sia tells her story through letters to her father. It did remind me of Lost.  The underwater scenes felt really claustrophobic.  The island was creepy.  I thought the author did a great job of creating a mysterious atmosphere.   I was engaged through to the end.  I highly recommend this one.

The Girls Weekend:  I found myself largely disappointed in this one.  It wasn't thrilling and the ending was kind of easy to figure out.  I found that some things that happened in the book made me have to suspend disbelief.  There is no way the characters would get away with come of the things they got away with.  It wasn't bad, it was just OK.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts even though you found them largely mediocre.
