The Bullet That Missed

The Bullet That Missed

The Bullet That Missed by Richard Osman is a cozy mystery. This is the third book in the Thursday Murder Club series.

Facing the Moutain book review

Facing the Mountain

Facing the Mountain is by the same author as The Boys In the Boat, which is one of my all time favorite nonfiction books. When Facing the Mountain was released in 2021 I knew it was a must read for me. Not only do I love the author’s writing, but I have really been interested in learning more about the Japanese Internment camps during WWII.

Between Shades of Gray book review

Between Shades of Gray

Between the Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys. I wish this historical fiction young adult book had a different title.

The Lumby Lines

The Lumby Lines

Lumby Lines by Gail Fraser has been in my to be read pile for awhile. It is one of the books listed on my What To Read After Mitford post. It is a fiction book that was first published in 2007. 

The Grand Design book review

The Grand Design

The Grand Design by Joy Callaway is a historical fiction book that got a lot of attention this summer. This book is a novel about Dorothy Draper or at least that is what the tagline said.

Tree Thieves book

Tree Thieves

Tree Thieves by Lyndsie Bourgon is a nonfiction true crime book set in the woods of the western U.S. This was a five star read for me, but I know that this book will not be for everyone. 

Still Life Book by Louise Penny

Still Life

Still Life by Louise Penny is the first Louise Penny book that I have read. I know. I know. This was published in 2005 and I am just now reading it.

Murder At Beacon Rock book review

Murder At Beacon Rock

Murder At Beacon Rock by Alyssa Maxwell is the tenth book in the A Gilded Newport Mystery Series, which is a mystery series set in the Gilded Age. 

Horse Soldiers

Horse Soldiers

I would give Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton a solid four stars out of five. It is probably one of my favorite modern warfare books I read.

Diamond Doris book

Diamond Doris

Diamond Doris was an interesting true crime read, but I struggled to love it because of the attitude of the author. If you like true crime books you will probably enjoy this, as long as you keep in mind that the author has little to no remorse for what she did. 

Mrs. Kennedy and Me book

Mrs. Kennedy and Me

Mrs. Kennedy and Me written by Clint Hill is a fascinating look into the Kennedy’s life while in the White House. 

A Mountain of Crumbs book review

A Mountain of Crumbs

A Mountain of Crumbs by Elena Gorokhova is a memoir of life in Russia. Memoirs are not always easy to read, but I think they are important because they give you a look at a life that can be hard to imagine.
