Two weeks of free audio books had gone by…

Yes, it’s already been two weeks and I haven’t even listened to half of the books I want, even though I’m rather happy with my progress. I don’t think I’ll gather myself to write full reviews of these books, but I think I could write few sentences about them.

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch star-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-empty-icon

dark-matterA curious book that I was afraid to pick up because of all the fans out there that would kick my ass if I didn’t like it :P. Well… probably not, but you know how it is, right?

Anyway, It was very good. I loved the idea and this story had plenty of thrilling moments, parts that made me wonder “what if” that I simply can’t ignore it. So why not five stars? Maybe it was the writing style?

Cute and cuddly mystery strikes again :)

Remember these short and fast-paced mysteries I reviewed before? I’ve got another one for you :). One that’s being published today!

self-serve-murderSelf-Serve Murder (Death by Cupcake #3) by D.E. Haggerty

My rating: star-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-full-iconstar-half-full-icon

Goodreads | Amazon

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 :)”
