Happy Reading


  1. A good looking haul. I like the look of The Vacation Rental.

    Have a great weekend!

    My post:

    1. I don't usually have good luck with Prime but I am hopeful for this one!

  2. A very mixed bag of 4 non-fiction for me this week:

    Superspy Science - Science, Death and Tech in the World of James Bond by Kathryn Harkup
    The Ottomans - Khans, Caesars and Caliphs by Marc David Baer
    This is Your Mind on Plants - Opium, Caffeine, Mescaline by Michael Pollan
    The Allure of the Multiverse - Extra Dimensions, Other Worlds, and Parallel Universes by Paul Halpern

    1. That middle one certainly sounds interesting..

    2. I've loved Harkup's other books, I think we've talked about them? I am not really interested in James Bond, but love her other stuff so am definitely going to see if our library has it!

    3. I'm a BIG James Bond fan - the older stuff generally but Craig was pretty good - so I HAD to have it. Maybe I'll *read* it one day.... [lol]

    4. If it's like her others, I think we'll both like it. I've read these so far:

      A is for Arsenic: The Poisons of Agatha Christie
      Death by Shakespeare: Snakebites, Stabbings and Broken Hearts
      Making the Monster: The Science Behind Mary Shelley's Frankenstein
      Vampirology: The Science of Horror's Most Famous Fiend

      The Shakespeare one is my most favorite, five stars. The rest were four stars for me. Great reads!

  3. You have a bigger haul this week. I hope you enjoy them when you get a chance to read them. Have a great week!

  4. If Something Happens to Me is on my list, and I was also considering The Vacation Rental. Enjoy!

    1. I really liked If Something Happens to Me. I have not read Vacation yet, but will get to it at some point soon. I have not had great luck with Prime but fingers crossed on this one.


Thanks for visiting my little book nook. I love talking books so leave a comment and let's chat!
