    Oh my, you had another good book week. I was so tempted by those cozies on NetGalley, sooooo tempted. 😀

    I see you have Hungry Like the Wolf; it’s not bad but the second book, Wolf Trouble, is MUCH better.

    Happy reading and hurray for a quiet week. 🙂

    • Stormi

      I know, one of them I had read the first one so had to get the second one and the other two were brand new series so I had too..lol.

      I have Wolf Trouble too! 🙂 So can’t wait to get into this series.

    So. Many. Posts!!!!

    Can I ask… a lot of people recently have been referring to mysteries that are cozy’s. Are the three from NetGalley classified like that? (I don’t understand but most seem to have covers which look a bit like those!)

    Deb

    • Stormi

      Yes, the three on my netgalley are considered cozy mysteries because they involve an amateur sleuth and there are no blood, etc really described in the text. The person is murdered off screen so to speak and they they just find the body..it’s for those who are more squeamish when it comes to blood and graphic description..lol. I love cozies because they are a lot of fun, lots of them have some fun snarky characters. But I love all mysteries. 🙂

    • Stormi

      Yeah, it was nice to just destress and read. 🙂 Dad is doing a lot better, but still not back to 100% yet.

    Some very nice books this week, Stormi! I see several I’m drooling over. LOL Cute prize. I enjoy children’s books.
    Sorry I haven’t visited too much this week. It seems I’m scrambling to get on the internet and so tired after working in the heat all day. The pool beckons! LOL

    • Stormi

      I keep telling myself to stay away from Netgalley and then I get these emails that just pulls me over..lol.

      Don’t worry about not coming by to much..if I had a pool I would be in it all the time..probably be a prune. 🙂

  4. Katherine @ I Wish I Lived in a Library

    Great books this week! All 3 of those cozy mysteries from NetGalley have been calling me but so far I’ve held strong! Not sure how much longer that will last though. I really enjoyed your review for Threads of Evidence and am looking forward to starting that one myself very soon. Have a great week!

    • Stormi

      Oh come on over the the darkside and grab up those cozies you know you want too…hehehe. 🙂

  5. Michelle@Because Reading

    So when does your Netgalley Ban start 😉 and now that you mentioned Netgalley I will have to go visit today since I haven’t.

    Slow weeks are great weeks 🙂

    Have a great week Stormi! Happy Reading! ox

    • Stormi

      Ha ha, I done tried that ban and failed about four or five months ago…lol. 🙂

  6. Charlie @ Girl of 1000 Wonders

    So many good books! I am noticing more and more people getting cozy mysteries, and I wondered if there’s a season for it? In any case, I am definitely getting into them much more! I hope you enjoy all your reads. 🙂

    • Stormi

      I am on a cozie kick, this year I have read a lot of them. 🙂 Well, I am really just on a mystery/suspense kick…lol.

  7. Lola

    Sometimes having a slow and boring week can be nice. You did got a nice book haul this week. That US puzzle looks awesome. I hope you have a great week!

  8. Tracy (@Cornerfolds)

    Eight reviews in a week is slow?! WOW! I’m lucky if I post two!! Where do you find the time? Yield the Night and Sideswiped look really good! I’ll have to check those out!

    • Stormi

      Some of those reviews were Kathy’s but even then I schedule ahead, so I don’t have to worry. 🙂 Books I review this week will go for next week or week after that depending on when I want them to go live. 🙂

  9. Kathy

    Slow weeks are great especially since you were so busy with your Dad being sick. I hope he is doing well. You got a great haul this week and I’m curious as to what you thought about A Whole New World. I have a copy and see it is getting mixed reviews. Have a great week!

  10. Tressa @ Wishful Endings

    Looks like you picked up some awesome additions to your shelves! Kim Harrison’s newest just caught my eye the other day and it looks good. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier in the week! I’m going to go see how you’re doing with Bout of Books…
