[Book Review] Trick or Treat Murder by Leslie Meier


Haunted-house parties and ghostly galas…grinning pumpkins, mayhem and murder. It’s going to be one heck of a Halloween for Lucy Stone and Tinker’s Cove…

It’s October in Maine, and everyone in Tinker’s Cove is preparing for the annual Halloween festival. While Lucy Stone is whipping up orange-frosted cupcakes, recycling tutus for her daughters’ Halloween costumes, helping her son with his pre-teen rebellion, and breast-feeding her brand-new bay, an arsonist is loose in Tinker’s Cove. When the latest fire claims the life of the owner of the town’s oldest house, arson turns into murder…

While the townsfolk work to transform a dilapidated mansion into a haunted house for the All-Ghouls festival, the hunt for the culprit heats up. Trick-or-treat turns deadly as a little digging in all the wrong places puts Lucy too close to a shocking discovery that could send all her best-laid plans up in smoke…

The Fall Book Tag



I know Fall has been around for almost a month now, but here in Maine it's been having these weird cold moments and then really humid moments. Now that seems to be done and it finally is starting to feel like permanent Fall time I thought I'd do this tag! I wasn't tagged by anyone and I'm not really a big fan of tagging specific people. However, if you're interested, do it! And tell me so I can read your answers! I am going to [mostly] pick books I've read this year, so if you want to know specifics on what I thought of each book I will link each of my reviews!

[Top Five Wednesday] Paranormal Books I've Enjoyed


It's time for this week's Top Five Wednesday! This has been created by gingerreadslainey and it also has a Goodreads group. I am hoping to do these posts (or other weekly Wednesday posts) more often as long as I am interested in the current prompt! This week's prompt I am talking about paranormal books I've read and enjoyed. For most of these it's been years since I've read them but they hold a nostalgic place in my heart.

[Top Ten Tuesday] Best Literary Foods


Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish. A prompt is given each week, and I hope to do it every week so I always have something going up on Tuesdays. This week I am talking about ten of my favorite references to food in some of my favorite books. Writing this post made me want to make so hungry for all of these!

[Book Review] Turtles All The Way Down by John Green



Sixteen-year-old Aza never intended to pursue the mystery of fugitive billionaire Russell Pickett, but there’s a hundred-thousand-dollar reward at stake and her Best and Most Fearless Friend, Daisy, is eager to investigate. So together, they navigate the short distance and broad divides that separate them from Russell Pickett’s son, Davis.

Aza is trying. She is trying to be a good daughter, a good friend, a good student, and maybe even a good detective, while also living within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts.
