Many of the things I pointed out in my review for book one also apply to book two, but the ending resolves better than the previous book while still leaving enough there for the story to continue, and there's no huge cliffhanger like before thank goodness!...

Choosing what to rate this one created a bit of a dilemma for me. On its own, I can't say I loved it, or particularly enjoyed it, but I did finish it. I'm honestly not sure if I would have gone ahead and read the next in the series, but because I already had book two and three on my kindle I figured why not? ...

I was disappointed with The Taxidermist's Daughter. I found it to be dull, slow, and easily forgettable. There was no tension or anticipation. No thrill of a mystery being unravelled...

For the most part, I enjoyed The Blood Gospel and flew through in no time. Sure it wasn't completely original, but it was different enough that I read it in two sittings. It's pretty fast paced, the whole story takes place over a few days and a lot happens in those few days...

As I mentioned in my Best of 2016 post I have thrown all the names of the books on my shelves into a TBR jar and I'm having each of my dogs pick one from the jar when I need a new book. I thought it would be fun to keep...

The One Memory of Flora Banks was a quick and easy read, but it wasn't executed the way I had hoped. The premise was an interesting one, but I feel that the storytelling only scratched the surface...

There's not a lot I can say about this one. It is what it says it is; a book full of weird, funny and interesting facts that will have you either chuckling, WTF'ing, or scratching your head. Here are few examples...

Am I the only one who kept picturing Columbo whenever Lieutenant Kinderman made an appearance?
