What I Read: Two for the Dough by Janet Evanovich
Find it at YCLD: Here!
What I ThoughtIt was a good murder mystery read. Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter and she is hunting down a guy named Kenny Mancuso. Stephanie Plums' grandma, grandma Mazur had her hand hurt by Kenny Mancuso with an ice pick and now she is missing. She was last seen going into the funeral home. This book is book number two in a series of Janet Evanovich books and now I am trying to read the rest of the series of books.

What I Read: Close Your Eyes by Iris & Ray Johansen
Find it at YCLD: Here!
What I Thought: A great mystery. As a former San Diego County resident, I enjoyed the accuracy of the various San Diego locations described.
The story had a lot of intrigue and twists. I look forward to reading more with Kendra Michaels. I believe she's up there with old Sherlock himself.

What I Read: Paper Towns by John Green
Find it at YCLD: Here!
What I Thought: I loved the message of "paper" towns and how easily they are forgotten or wasted away.
I was intrigued by Margo's disappearance and how clues were in "paper towns" along the way. The feelings of these Senior students also brought home some understandings of how my own personal life and the hardships they still need to perceive and experience. I'm excited for the movie to watch it portrayed on the big screen.

What I Read: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Find it at YCLD: Here!
What I Thought: This book is a Harry Potter's best friend's cousin! I loved the similarities with a right amount of differences.
Great mix of fantasy, magic and drama all wrapped in a heart pounding adventure!
A must read for dire hard HP fans!
