MAY - what are you reading?

9 months ago

Hello all -

New month, new thread!

Recently finished Mrs. Jeffries Delivers the Goods - a simply, cozy mystery with a plot that changes but recurring characters that do not. This is a huge series of over 36 titles at this point. I enjoy them once in a while, but cannot read them back to back.

I also just finished reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.

And I know I am in the minority if goodreads is any indication... but I didn't like it. No spoilers - but it just seemed like the writing style was more akin to a middle school girl writing about her summer vacation. And the story line felt like 1) it trivialized a lot of what makes relationships have trust and value and 2) was written expressly for the big screen. I didn't like it, I hated every character.

No idea what I want to read next... I am still filled with frustration about Evelyn.
