Excerpt from The Hero of Ages

I am currently reading Brandon Sanderson’s The Hero of Ages. Yes, this is the third book in the Mistborn trilogy, and I haven’t read the first two books in the series. I just dived right into this world without knowing anything about it, but Sanderson does a good job at filling in the backstory so that the reader has some idea of what’s going on.

Thanksgiving Giving!

Today is Canadian Thanksgiving, and I am thankful for my readers!

I know, most of you are in the US, and your Thanksgiving day isn’t for another month and a half yet. But the growing season is shorter in Canada and our harvest is in. We’ve had our first frost and first blizzard of the year (at least in my part of the country) and our thoughts are turned to toasty socks and stretching out with a good book by the fire.

Excerpt from The Eternity Code

Here is one of the books I read last week, a light read with fairies, fun, and flatulent dwarves. The Eternity Code by Eoin Colfer is a middle-grade adventure in the Artemis Fowl series, guaranteed to keep your young reader (or you) interested. It’s an entertaining read; just see if you can keep up with Artemis and his schemes.

Excerpt from Every Crooked Nanny

My teaser this week is from Mary Kay Andrews’ Callahan Garrity Mysteries. I’ve read one book from this series before, but hadn’t read book 1 in the series, Every Crooked Nanny. I often read random books in the middle of a series…

Excerpt from The BFG

I’ve finished a few books in the past week, including one by a favourite author of mine, Mary Higgins Clark, but the one I had to highlight was Roald Dahl’s The BFG. BFG, for those of you who don’t know, stands for Big Friendly Giant. It has grown in popularity since being made into a movie by Steven Spielberg. This is such a fun read, filled with lots of scrumdiddlyumptious words! 

Release of Gluten-Free Murder and other Awesome New Releases

I am so excited to kick off my first cozy mystery series. While I’ve been flexing my mystery muscles recently with books such as The Girl in the Morgue and She Wore Mourning, the Auntie Clem’s Bakery series has a different vibe. A little lighter and more fun, with animal antics and delicious baking as a counterpoint to the murder investigations. Gluten-Free Murder is the first of three books and two shorts stories to get this series off and running!

Excerpt from Downfall

This week’s teaser is from Downfall: A Brady Novel of Suspense by J.A. Jance. I haven’t read any of the other books in this series, but I certainly wouldn’t hesitate. There are a lot of references to Sheriff Brady’s previous cases and experiences in Downfall, and it sounds like she’s had an exciting career.
