Last year I recieved an ARC of the cosy mystery Clause & Effect (Deadly Edits #2) by Kaitlyn Dunnett through Netgalley. I read the book shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
As a professional editor, Mikki Lincoln is used to crimes against the English language. As an amateur sleuth, she's finding catching criminals a lot more dangerous than catching typos . . .

Nestled in the picturesque Catskills, the village of Lenape Hollow prepares to celebrate the 225th anniversary of its founding. Freelance book editor Mikki Lincoln has been drafted to update and correct the script, left over from the town's bicentennial, which is housed at the historical society.

The building is being renovated for the first time since that last celebration. But when construction reveals a shocking discovery--human remains walled up in a fireplace--Mikki shifts focus from cold-reading to solving a cold case.

Just as he…

Image
It's Wednesday yet again and time for a new Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge, courtesy of Long and Short Reviews. The theme of the week was the last place I travelled to and why.
The last place I travelled to was York, UK, back in March 2014 as a study trip with one of my classes at university. It was a two-week trip and we had several fun lectures at the Norwegian Study Center at University of York during the day and free time in the evenings and weekend. I ended up exploring York a bit in the free time.

Review; Where Life's No Longer Wild: Poems from the Urban Jungle by Marilyn Singer and Gordy Wright

Image
Last year, I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the book Where Life's No Longer Wild: Poems from the Urban Jungle by Marilyn Singer and Gordy Wright through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards, but I haven't published my review until now.

Description from Goodreads
Humans may have built towns and cities, but we aren’t the only ones who live in them. Given the smallest chance – a park, a garden, a window box, a basement, a subway tunnel, a bridge – wildlife manages to survive in the city. Look around – you may discover you’re in an urban jungle!

This beautifully illustrated non-fiction book tells the unique stories of the animals who have made their homes in urban spaces around the world. Each story is told through a short descriptive paragraph paired with colourful illustrations so children will discover the amazing wildlife we never knew were our neighbours.

My Thoughts on the Book Wild in the Streets is a really fun poetry book. It contains both a poem and informa…

Last year I recieved an ARC of the noel One Summer in Santorini by Sandy Barker through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards, but I haven't published my review until now.

Description from Goodreads
There was something in the air that night. . .

Sarah has had enough of men. It’s time to rekindle her first true love – travel – so she books a sailing trip around the Greek islands with a group of strangers.

The very last thing Sarah wants is to meet someone new… But then a gorgeous American man boards her yacht and she knows she’s in trouble. And when she also encounters a handsome silver fox who promises her the world, she realises that trouble really does come in twos.

Will Sarah dive into a holiday fling, embark on a relationship, or stick to her plan – steer clear of men, continue her love affair with feta, and find her own way after all?

My Thoughts on the Book One Summer in Santorini is a quick and light summer read. What annoyed me a bit was the love triangle-situation and th…

Review; Twelve Unending Summers: Memoir of an Immigrant Child by Cholet Kelly Josue

Image
Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the memoir Twelve Unending Summers: Memoir of an Immigrant Child by Cholet Kelly Josue through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards, but I haven't published my review until now.

Description from Goodreads
Bahamian. Haitian. American. Where can I fully belong?

At age sixteen, Cholet Josué arrived on the shores of Miami in a wooden boat—and immediately put the past behind him. More than two decades later, the elusive question of identity pursues him, forcing him to confront a difficult truth: the cultures that formed him have each indelibly stamped his soul. Courageously, Cholet dismantles his own story to uncover a way to unashamedly, unabashedly fit in with three different worlds while belonging to none.

Honest and compelling, Twelve Unending Summers is a deeply personal journey that resonates with the universal human need to find a home and embrace the legacy of family heritage.
