So, when I originally thought of this post it was going to tell you a book I didn’t like. It was so bad (in my opinion) that I stopped reading it after the first chapter. That alone shows that I am changing since when I was young I would read a complete book, even if I didn’t like it, with the hopes that it got better. Now I have too much I want and have to do so I stopped reading this one and it is already in the give away pile. And, no I won’t give the author or title since I know other people like the author. I found this book and others by the same author at a garage sale recently.
I will say that I do like Joanne Fluke and I recently finished Devil’s Food Cake Murder (Hannah Swensen Mystery). And if the name sounds familiar it is because the Hallmark Channel has started turning these books into movies. I like the movies too.
I won’t give any secrets away about Devil’s Food Cake Murder , but I will say that there were a few slow parts, but it doesn’t help that I usually only read a little fiction before going to bed.
What fiction (cozy mysteries, etc) authors / book titles would you recommend?
A few weeks ago a neighbor had a Garage Sale. I was able to walk over so I decided to check it out. I got there right after they started so most of their items were still in boxes (to be honest the way some things were packed I don’t think they had used them since they had moved in a few years ago). I found one almost brand new loaf pan for 25 cents – score. I came home and took one of my really old ones and re-purposed it to craft storage.
A few weeks I decided to go stop in a local Thrift Store (after donating a big bag and box of items). I had a few items on my mental need list and I found at least one of them:
a) extra Lunch box – This one cost me a $1.00! I like that it is really bright.
b) Six sewing patterns for 60 cents. Since it is finally warm around here I have been living in shorts. So, I want to make some easy shorts for working in the yard, etc. The shorts have been started, but need the elastic put in and the legs turned up. I will post a photo when they are done.
What great garage sale finds have you found recently?
