  2. OOO, Hearne + Star Wars! I forgot he wrote those, too!! I hope it was good. I'm kind of oggling the Mark Hamil on the cover - talk about svelte (sorry!). I'm trying to imagine Skip's voice coming from THAT guy. I can't wait for Star Wars 7 myself...

  7. I hope you'll continue to have some sunshine next week, too, Greg!

    Your new books look very good, Time Salvager and The Adventuress both seem like stories I'd enjoy, too.

    It was fun to chat with you in the COYER twitter party yesterday :)

    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  12. I really want to try the country club mysteries. I think you showed another one time. I'm getting caught up on my Lady Emily books to be ready for The Adventuress. Thanks for visiting today.

    1. I like the Lady Emily mysteries a lot- I have not read all, but about half. I'm skipping a few and just reading the newer ones, now.

  13. Yeah for getting a lot of reading done this week! I was busy with family so I was only able to listen to my audiobooks in the car.

    Those are 2 great movies coming out. The Cobie Smulders' movie looks really good and it is great seeing Elizabeth McGovern. I loved her in the 80's and they actually look alike and can pass for mother and daughter.

    I hope you have a great week and enjoy all your new books!

  14. The Peanuts movie looks so cute, they have always been my favorite. Charlie Brown Christmas will forever be my favorite :)

    We had some good sunshine this week but now it's raining.
    I was so glad you came to the Twitter party yesterday! You have me so curious about the Star Wars books, I am off to check out your review :)

    Have a great week, Greg! Happy Reading!

    1. You should try it, if you're in Star Wars at all. The party was fun, COYER should be a blast!

      I love PEanuts too, and am so happy to see them doing a movie. The Schulz family is involved so hopefully they'll do it right.

    1. Same here! :) I'll be watching for your thoughts as well. It does look good. And Peanuts is awesome, I loved the books growing up and the movie looks good. Have an awesome week!

  16. The Time Salvager sounds good! Also your cozy mysteries always look like fun.

    Oh, a new Peanuts movie! I am old enough that I grew up since almost the beginning of the franchise. I had Peanut comic books and figures when a kid and still watch The Charlie Brown Christmas every holiday season for nostalgia. Plus that jazzy soundtrack--awesome.

    Enjoy your week!

    1. I love that soundtrack- and often listent o it, even when it's not Christmas time. A classic. There's something about Peanuts- and I had a ton of books growing up, it was very comforting.

  17. I didn't realize there was a Peanuts movie coming out! That will definitely be on our watch list. I really want to try Leslie Budewitz. Her spice store series looks like so much fun. I hadn't heard of P.B. Kolleri but now I want to try that series just based off the cover. Must find out more about it. Have a great week!

    1. I didn't either- I was excited when I saw the trailer. And it comes out this year- yay! I thought the spice store mysteries looked fun too, and thought about- then I saw this one, and thought I'll start there. I hope it's good

  21. I really want to give a few of the Star Wars books a try as I am a big Star Wars fan. I enjoyed reading your review of this one and it makes me want to read it soon. The cover for Garanteed to Bleed looks pretty! I love the green and brown colours used on the cover.
    I hope you'll have a great week and enjoy your new books!

    1. I haven't read very many SW books (none really) and I liked this one- a lot. It was nice to get a Luke. I agree about Gauranteed- i like that cover!

  22. All these cozies sound so good! I like to read them in the fall; I will need to remember them!

    1. I'm really into cozies lately- not all, but a few that appeal to me. The ellery Adams ones have caught my attention, I'm really liking those.

  25. All those mysteries look really good, I hope you enjoy them. Love the Peanuts trailer and with the second one all I could think is who is Cobie Smulder..lol.

  26. Thanks for the link-up!

    I've heard good things about Tasha Alexander's books but I don't think I've actually read anything by her before. I just heard about the Peanuts movie. It should be fun! Enjoy your week!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I need to make time for the other two SW books I have in the new set before Dark Disciple comes out in a few weeks. I'm pretty excited about it because it will center around Asajj Ventress who is in the Clone Wars animated show which I loved.

    I hope you have an awesome week Greg!

  29. Why is it that only cozy mysteries have such slyly clever titles?

    Have a great reading week!

    ReplyDelete
  30. One of these days I will read a Star Wars book (other than the original novelization of what's now A New Hope, by George Lucas, which I read back in the day.) And I so want to read the new Tasha Alexander! I still haven't caught up on the series, though. Sometimes I think I should take a year off from new books and just read older titles from my TBR list...

    The Time Scavenger book looks really intriguing, too.

  31. Unexpected looks really good. Colbie is a great actress!
