2016’s goodies – the books I fell in love with

Looking back at my favorite reads from this year I have to say I’m rather surprised. Most of the books on that special shelf were from Fantasy genre and now I’ve got surprisingly many Sci-Fi novels. And it seems I’ve discovered a new love for cozy mysteries, especially by one author :D.

I wanted to make this list a “top-something” list (and surprisingly I’ve got 10 books to present, so it might’ve worked), but I can’t decide on the order, so instead I’ll just show off the few super-awesome books that really grabbed me this year and only this year – no re-reads.

A bit of a warning – this post is all about positive thoughts! There will be no whining, complaining, etc 😉

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

What would you do if you woke up in your bed with a naked dead guy next to you? Without any memory of what might’ve happened? That’s exactly what Kristie has to deal with. Being a good girl and a social worker makes things even worse. How could she end up in a situation like this? It seems she’ll have to find out… with a bit of help from her boss lady, coworker, and two policemen who seem to be glued to their ladies ;).

Yet another fun and light read from D.E. Haggerty. It was just what I needed during these cold days in overcrowded trains. Well… can’t say it’s cold inside a train like this, but there’s the waiting part before it finally arrives. Continue reading “Cute and cuddly mystery strikes again :)”

More cupcakes, sexy beard and gangs

It’s adorable, it’s funny and it has a mysterious bearded man who just happens to make that look work for him (which is not easy). Add to that a murder, some far from legal actions and some delicious cooking and you’ve got another great book from D.E. Haggerty.

Funny Friday – army men, cupcakes and knitting

Today it will be one BBC drama series and a spotlight for a certain author that made me fall in love with cozy mysteries. Yes, I liked them before, but never that much!

Dad’s Army

This is an unusual drama, not book related but based on a British sitcom. If you’re in need of some British humor with a bunch of men trying to protect their town during war – here’s something for you.

Unfortunately, I missed the airing this year because it looks like there’s still the last episode available online, but you can always find it in a different source or even buy it if you want. Continue reading “Funny Friday – army men, cupcakes and knitting”
