The Reading List

I’ve discovered the love for reading again last year. I’ve fallen in love with Joanne Fluke’s Hannah Swensen series. As of right now there are a total of 21 books in the series & yes. I plan to read them all. I did a review on The Blueberry Muffin Murder & it was great! As I said in the review these books keep your interest and you don’t have a clue as to who did it until the last few pages of the book.

I’ve started “Don’t Be A Stranger” but it seems promising too! I’m not so much into the romance novels but I love the murder mysteries! That may sound weird but I like trying to figure out who did it before I’m told.

The reading list for the rest of 2015:

“Don’t Be A Stranger” by A.R Winters

“Peach Cobbler Murder” by Joanne Fluke

“Cherry Cheesecake Murder” by Joanne Fluke

“Key Lime Pie Murder” by Joanne Fluke

    I had never heard of this series but now you’ve got me curious! Right now I’m reading David Platt’s Follow Me and I plan to start some Jen Hatmaker stuff next like For the Love or Interrupted.

    Sounds like a bunch of great reads to me. I will check some of these out.

  4. I have seen this series and was wondering just how good it is… I actually have the first book (which I believe is Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder) marked in my ‘to read’ section on Goodreads. I’m glad to hear they are pretty good, but 21 books?!!! Eek! The last time I read that many books was when I read the Sookie Steakhouse series!

    Well these sound like a lot fun to read. I have started reading again as well, parenting keeps me from reading chapters as fast as I’d like, but at least I’m able to pick up a book e wry now and then.

  28. Wendy says:

    Love a good mystery. Just finished the last book in the series I was reading. Will have to check these out.

  29. I do enjoy a book series that goes on for awhile. Of course sometimes the writers go off the deep end a little a.k.a. trueblood and that weird fairy/tiger dude. But I do love it when they stay on point or merge off into the different lives of characters. Thank you for sharing this I may just have to check her out.

  30. Autumn says:

    I have missed reading for a little while and just picked up my first book in a long time! My favorite kinds of books are usually young adult novels. My mother-in-law LOVES mysteries though and this is such a fun spin because it has a recipe πŸ™‚

    • Leslie says:

      I think “Don’t be a stranger” is the only book & has no series so if your looking for a series Joanne Fluke definitely. Her first book is “Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder”. The series follows itself. I love them!

  36. I am a huge fan of series…I normally allow my sisters to read them first and pass the good ones along. LOL

  37. I love books like this! Definitely adding the whole series to my reading list!
