The Cottingley Secret by Hazel Gaynor

I thought this story was enchanting, but I thought Olivia’s story, the bookshop and her memories of her grandfather were wonderful. I enjoyed Olivia’s story better than the fairy story. I gave it 4**** stars on goodreads.

The Window on the Square by Phyllis A. Whitney

Elementary, She Read by Vicki Delany

Oh my word! I was reading Window on the Square when I walked into a bookstore. That’s right, I did. And! You know what happened. I bought a book! I found a chair, in the bookstore, made myself comfy and started reading the new book. And I did read and I did read more, so I bought the book and now I’m reading two books. *sigh* They are both good!!!

What will you read next?

Tuesday Teaser! #TuesdayBookBlog

Hello everyone! I’ve decided to make a change on my blog, so this will be the last Tuesday Teaser. I’ve decided to start blogging about WWW Wednesday. I don’t think I can blog the Tuesday Teaser and the WWW Wednesday back to back. It might be a little much, so onward to Wednesday, and here is my last Tuesday Teaser.

Tuesday Teaser is a weekly meme.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following ~

  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share two or three *teaser* sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • Be careful not to include spoilers ~ make sure what you share doesn’t give to much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others.

Share the title and the author too: so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teasers.

Without further ado ~

The Cottingley Secret by Hazel Gaynor is the first book I have read written by this author. I thought it was an enchanting read, but I enjoyed the story of Olivia, the bookstore and her memories of her grandfather much better than the story of the fairies.

“He wasn’t there, and yet he was everywhere: in every cracked spine, on every dusty shelf, in the warped glass at the windows and the mustard-yellow walls. Something Old wasn’t just a bookshop. It was him – Pappy – in bricks and mortar, leather and paper. He’d loved this place so much, and Olivia knew she must now love it for him.”

Happy Reading!

Hi everyone. I hope you are in your favorite comfy spot reading a good book.  🙂

Thursday evening I went to our local library and heard Mary Angela speak. She wrote “An Act of Murder,” and “Passport to Murder.” Using PowerPoint to assist her, she told us about the cozy mystery genre and how her books fit into the cozy mystery genre. She did read quotes from her books and she told us she is working on her third cozy mystery. She’s a pleasant person and she answered questions at the end of her talk. I didn’t take any photos. I thought her presentation was fun and she kept my attention.

I did read both of her books and I enjoyed them. She writes the Professor Prather Mysteries. Emmeline Prather is an English professor at a college in Copper Bluff, South Dakota and our amateur sleuth in the mysteries. If you enjoy mysteries, specifically cozy mysteries, you might enjoy these. I gave both books 5***** stars on goodreads!

Classic Movie Friday!

The African Queen (1951)

Humphrey Bogart

Katharine Hepburn

humphrey bogart and katherine hepburn in african queen

Oh my word! What a miserable adventure! Rose Sayer (Katharine Hepburn) and her brother (Robert Morley) are missionaries in Africa. After the Germans attack and burn the village, Charlie Allnutt (Humphrey Bogart) takes Rose away on his boat, The African Queen. While on the water, Rose convinces Charlie to try and attack an enemy boat which has been a threat to England.

Courage ~ Perseverance ~ Working Together to Accomplish A Goal!

I didn’t think I was going to like this movie, but I did, and it’s a romance. I didn’t see that coming. The conditions were horrible ~ the sweltering heat, the insects, dangerous wildlife, the rapids ~ I shudder when I think about it. But, it was a good film! Well done!

Enjoy!

This is the second time I’ve read, “Peril at End House,” by Agatha Christie. I’ve read many of her mysteries.  🙂 In this murder mystery, someone is trying to kill Nick Buckley, the lady who owns End House. Poirot and his friend Hastings are enjoying some rest and relaxation in St. Loo when they become embroiled in this puzzling mystery.

“I struggled to an upright position, feeling very still and uncomfortable. Sleeping in a chair is a proceeding not to be recommended at my time in life. Yet one thing at least resulted from it – – I awoke not in that pleasant state of lazy somnolence but with a mind and brain as active as when I fell asleep.”

Happy Reading!
