Reading Recap | Mar 23 – Mar 29 | 1 RomCom, 1 Children’s Book, 1 Murder Mystery

I read a romcom, a children’s picture book, and a murder mystery this week.

One comment

This week, I read a bouquet of genres–1 romcom, 1 children’s picture book, and 1 murder mystery. The variety helped me keep up my reading speed, and I am more or less on track for my blog tours.

If I hadn’t committed to posting reviews, I might have stopped reading altogether in this stressful time. My country is on a 21-day lockdown and we’re struggling to get groceries.

The staying at home isn’t troublesome–it’s procuring food that’s giving me nightmares! I really hope things get better.


Last Week:

The Cornish Confetti Agency by Daisy James

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Genre: Romantic Comedy

So much happens in this book that it’s not just a romantic comedy. There’s drama and mystery as well. The twist at the end caught me off-guard because I was so sure I had found out who was behind all the mischief!

Review to be posted on April 17.

Molly’s Big Decision by Carmen Allen

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Genre: Children’s picture book, Juvenile ficiton, Religious Fiction

Source: Reedsy Discovery

I was reminded of the stories written by Enid Blyton (sans the racism) when I was reading this well-written and endearing story. I didn’t catch the hidden meaning and I thought it was another children’s tale with a moral. Eye-catching illustrations by Jamie Buckley, which was what attracted me to the book in the first place.

Review to be posted on April 17.

The Worst Lie by Shauna Bickley

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Genre: Crime/murder mystery

This was a surprisingly good book! I’ve read a murder mystery after a long while and I don’t know why I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it as much as I did. Perhaps the rising COVID-19 death tally has something to do wit it.
