Four Dead Queens by Astrid Scholte


This standalone was absolutely amazing! I couldn’t put it down it was soooooo good. I wanted to see how each queen died… and OF COURSE I needed to know who killed them all. This was a fast read for me! The story has many points of view but that didn’t deter me, I think it actually intrigued me further. I like the two main characters, Keralie and Varin, and their building relationship together while they try to navigate the palace and try to save the queens from death. You get to see how Keralie’s life is in Toria and a brief glimpse into Varin’s life in Eonia, which are total opposites! But opposites attract, am I right? Duh, this is a YA book! A definite recommend to anyone who is into YA fantasy books.

P.S. I also voted for this great book in the 2019’s GoodReads Choice Awards

Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson


I requested this book based on the author and the synopsis I read on Edelweiss. And it did not disappoint! This book captured me right from the get-go. It was interesting how the story was told by Malcolm Kreshaw, but it was written like he was speaking to you (the reader) directly. I haven’t read many books like that and I rather enjoyed it. Malcolm is a book store owner who is contacted by a FBI agent named Gwen Mulvey and she is trying to connect some murders around Boston to a list called “Eight Perfect Murders” that Malcolm had wrote on his stores blog a number of years back. He doesn’t really think her case holds water… until some of the story develops and he figured out that the murderer is copying his list AND must know him personally. I thought one or two parts in the middle seemed a little out there but didn’t ruin the story for me. I liked how the the ending went because it fit into the Eight Perfect Murders list, which rounded out the whole thing. And I would definitely recommend this book to all types of readers as I felt it was a breeze to get through.

Thank you to Peter Swanson, Edelweiss, and HarperCollins Publishers for the opportunity to read this book. Four out of five stars.
