An admitted bookaholic. (Sorry, I can't make the 12-step meeting, too busy reading.) I love mysteries, biographies and travel stories the best. I also read science fiction, fantasy, Japanese history, children's books and, basically, any book that catches my interest.
Another great book about the wonderfully wise Stillwatrer and some new friends. The artwork is fabulous!
A great mystery set after the Great War and the beginning of a terrific series. Maisie Dobbs starts out a servant, works and studies her way to Cambridge. The war changes everything and she goes to France as a nurse. After the war, Maisie starts business as an investigator. Alternating between Maisie’s past and the current mystery she is working on, this book keeps you interested in both parts.
Hidden Figures is a wonderful book! It tells of the important and largely unacknowledged work of the women working on improving airplanes and then on space flight. Fascinating women! Very interesting look at the times.
This is a fun book based on a real but little-known female sheriff.
Threatened by a silk merchant and his cronies, Constance Kopp won't sit still and wait for some man to take care of the problem. She jumps in despite threats to her and her sisters. I enjoyed it immensely.
I loved this book! Rinker and his brother Nick are fun to read about and the trip itself was incredible to hear about. Who knew there was so much to know about mules. Go Jake!
I've always enjoyed Mercedes Lackey's writing and the world and characters she came up with in this YA novel are particularly good. Fun read!
This book grabbed me on the first page and would not let go. Great reading, believable characters and a very compelling world.
Wow--I love this book. A sweet wonderful story about generosity and friendship. The art is a perfect fit.
This book is wonderful reading! Mary Roach makes it fun and informative.
This series is off to a great start!
I've read both of the titles out so far and loved the characters and the stories. Due Or Die is the second book in the series.
Who knew there were so many kinds of butterflies?
Gorgeous and informative definitely describes this introduction to the world of butterflies. From iridescent blue swallowtails and brilliant orange monarchs to the world's tiniest butterfly (Western Pygmy Blue) and the largest (Queen Alexandra's Birdwing), an incredible variety of butterflies are celebrated here in all of their beauty and wonder.
The start of a great series! Chet, K-9 school dropout, and Bernie, down-on-his-luck PI, are a winning team. Love that the story is told from Chet's point of view. Spencer Quinn lets Chet be a big help while remaining basically a dog. Bernie is just as good in his flawed, human way.
