1357 Thank you guys!

1357 I need your help...I am trying to remember the name of the book or series. I know I read it recently and must have forgotten to add it to my read books list. It is the first in a new cozy series with a woman who lives with her grandmother and they own a cooking school. Her grandmother has a bit of dementia, her best friend is some rich guy who rides a bike, and there was a ghost. The first dead guy in the book was in the closet. Does any of this sound familliar? Thanks in advance.

1357 I finally finished Beaglemania (Pet Rescue Mystery, #1) by Linda O. Johnston today. It's taken me forever to read as I just can't stand to start a book and not eventually finish. I had already decided no more of the Kendra series because I do not like Kendra...well I didn't like Lauren any better and won't be reading any more by this author.

1357 I've read several of the books on the lists and while I liked them I don't know that I would have called them "funny". Janet Evanovich is a given. Even when her books are repetitive and really have no story I still love them because they make me laugh out loud. I also think Shelly Fredman is laugh out loud funny. I guess though what makes one person laugh doesn't always translate as funny to someone else. Lois Greiman Peggy Webb Maggie Barbieri and Lisa Lutz are others that I find particularly funny:)

1357 I finished Spanish Dagger (China Bayles, #15) by Susan Wittig Albert this afternoon while at the dentist(Yuck). It was another good China B. story. Luckily I received the next in the series from PBS today. I also received an amazon order that includes 3 of the books Caroline mentioned above-- Thread Reckoning (An Embroidery Mystery, #3) by Amanda Lee Button Holed (Button Box Mystery #1) by Kylie Logan The Diva Haunts the House (A Domestic Diva Mystery, #5) by Krista Davis and one more that I read recently that someone on here didn't like at all-- Death in a Difficult Position (Mantra for Murder, #4) by Diana Killian. Except for the dentist part it's a good day:)

1357 I started Lips Unsealed A Memoir by Belinda Carlisle last night. The Go-Go's were my first concert when I was in 7th or 8th grade. I thought I was hot stuff in my 80's gear:)

That is too funny! I believe it applies to me as well:)

1357 I finished A Dilly of a Death (China Bayles, #12) by Susan Wittig Albert tonight. Some series with so many books in them seem to get boring or stall with character development but with each book I read of this series I feel like I live there and am just watching their lives unfold.

1357 I had originally set my goal for 150 but a couple of weeks ago I was 7 books ahead and noticed that I had read 182 last year so I upped my challenge to 183. Now I am 15 books behind:( So we'll see if I'm able to do it. I'm going on a long vacation in November so I'm hoping to make up some time then.

I just started this one..glad to hear you liked it.

1357 I finished Dire Threads (Threadville Mystery, #1) by Janet Bolin last night. I liked the characters, the plot and the writing but I was totally overwhelmed by the "craft" part of it. I'm not at all crafty and all those descriptions of their clothes and homes made me cringe for some reason. I can't imagine living with all that:) I'll be reading the next one though.

1357 I finished Indigo Dying (China Bayles, #11) by Susan Wittig Albert. Didn't make it back to Pecan Springs yet but I'm hopeful for the next one:) I really have enjoyed reading this series. With the first few books I just couldn't decide if I actually liked China or not. She changes as circumstances occur much unlike some series' whose characters never change. With each book I just love her that much more.

1357 I just finished To Sketch a Thief (A Portrait of Crime Mystery, #2) by Sharon Pape. I liked this one better than the first. I don't care for ghosts in a book..but I'm used to this one now..like Jitty in the Carolyn Haines series:) The addition of Hobo seemed to make the main character more likeable to me. Plus now I want to know what happened to the Marshall!

1357 I finished Bloodroot (China Bayles, #10) by Susan Wittig Albert this morning. It was one of my favorites so far but I am looking forward to getting back to Pecan Springs for the next one!

1357 I finished How to Survive a Killer Seance (Party Planning Mystery, #3) by Penny Warner last night. Except for her excessive ADHD comments I enjoyed the book. I will definately read the next one.

I have full use of both hands and still can't get that tape off sometimes..but if I want the book I figure sometimes I just have to work for it:)

1357 I don't like repeating words or descriptions. I'm reading How to Survive a Killer Seance now and while I'm enjoying the book if she mentions her ADHD one more time (which I'm sure she will) my head might explode. I got it the first 15 times it was mentioned and won't forget she has it before the book ends.

Another book I've read recently described a car as a Honda Maxima. That just bent me out of shape for some reason:)
