Top Ten Cat Detectives

Greetings Humans! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday and today’s prompt is Books with your favorite trope/theme. My Mommy loves anything mysterious. A good who done it is bound to bring an extra treat for all of us to ensure no one will bother her while she and the clever detective is solving the mystery at hand.  The other thing she loves, is me of course.

The Sunday Post #63

The Sunday Post #63

Greetings you guys! We’ve been meaning to do our Sunday Post since yesterday, but then we got so submerged in our review book, the whole world just came to a standstill. Every now and then, I think to myself: no more review books. Just read what’s on the shelf and on the age-old Kindle.  And then we realize, we truly are blessed to have such wonderful review books fall into our laps and the TBR can wait a bit longer. It’s not going anywhere is it? Our latest read, Letters to Bizzy was nothing but delightful and thought provoking. Can’t wait to blabber on about it tomorrow for a full review. Letters to Bizzy finds a man, John Tibbits, past his prime staring down the barrel of old age, having to come to grips with his mother’s death and regrettable fact his dysfunctional youth has burdened him with a lifetime of unwelcome baggage. As he sorts through his mother’s personal effects he discovers boxes of unopened letters written some 50 years earlier from a man, Robert Guthrie, to his daughter, Bizzy. They tell the story of a life lived on a barrier island off the coast of North Carolina, Bogue Banks. […]

Six Degrees of Separation – An Affair like no Other

Six Degrees of Separation – An Affair like no Other

Greetings you guys! It’s the first Saturday of March and there is a definite nip in the air today. Still a beautiful, bright sunny day though. But we are not here to talk about the weather, we are gathered here today for Six Degrees of Separation. This monthly fun meme is hosted by Books are my Favorite and Best: On the first Saturday of every month, a book is chosen as a starting point and linked to six other books to form a chain. Books can be linked in obvious ways, for example: same authors, same era or genre, or books with similar themes or settings. Or you might choose to link them in more personal ways: books you read in the same holiday, books given to you by a particular friend or books that remind you of a particular time in your life. The choices are endless here!  Our starting point this month is a book we’ve seen before, but not read. I think my Mommy might read this. While I take a catnap. Graham Greene’s masterful novel of love and betrayal in World War II London is “undeniably a major work of art” (The New Yorker). Maurice Bendrix, a writer […]

Blog Tour: Red (Transplanted Tales #1) by Kate SeRine

Blog Tour: Red (Transplanted Tales #1) by Kate SeRine

Red by Kate Serine Series: Transplanted Tales #1 on January 2022 Genres: Fantasy Pages: 395 Format: ARC Source: Netgalley, Caffeinated PR Buy on Amazon Goodreads “My name is Tess Little. But everyone calls me Red.” Once upon a time, a spell went awry, stranding Make Believe characters in the ordinary world. Since then, Tess “Red” Little—a/k/a Little Red Riding Hood—has worked as an Enforcer for the Chicago branch of the Fairytale Management Authority. But, consider yourself warned—she’s not just some waif with a basket of goodies. All grown up and with nothing to lose, a gun and combat boots is more her style. And Red’s new assignment threatens to be short on happily ever afters… Someone is murdering transplanted Tales in gruesome fashion. The list of fictional characters capable of such grisly acts is short and includes more than one of Red’s old flames. And if that wasn’t bad enough, there’s another complication, in the form of sexy, enigmatic Nate Grimm, the FMA’s lead detective and part-time Reaper. Used to following her own rules and living life on the edge, Red has managed to avoid taking on a partner until now. But Nate’s dark side makes him perfect for a […]

Greetings you guys! Welcome to Wondrous Words Wednesday, hosted by yours truly. We’ve had a couple of lovely patrons over the last couple of WWW posts and I will add a Mister Linky Widget to the end of this post again so you can all add your links. The concept of Wondrous Words Wednesday is fairly easy, all you need to do, is share any new (or new to you) words you came across this week and share them with us. You are also welcome to share words you simply want to show off to us. For more on Wondrous Words Wednesday, you can click here. You are also most welcome to use any of our graphics. As long as I appear in one of them, I have no problem with it at all. I can’t believe it’s March already! Did time fly so fast between 1896 and the 1950’s as well? In case you didn’t know (I didn’t), that was the time period for our Wondrous Words today. I’ve been trying to get Greg from Greg’s Book Haven to take part in Wondrous Words Wednesday for months, but he doesn’t want to fall for my charms. So I thought if […]
