Notes from Melissa

So BookExpo America, BEA Blogger Conference and BookCon happened!!! I am exhausted – what an experience!  This was my third year attending and it still astonishes me…  I hope that everyone who attended had a great trip and made it home safely.

I’ll share my recap with you all later this week and my haul on my next Added to the Bookshelf post next Sunday.  

In other news…Hello June!  Where has this spring gone? lol I’m certainly enjoying the warmer weather and plan to try to spend this month making my backyard a bit of a reading oasis:)

Review Books:

Title: Be Careful What You Witch For
Series: Family Fortune Mystery #2
Author: Dawn Eastman
Publisher: Berkley| Penguin
Release Date: July 1st 2014

Leaving a traumatic police career behind, Clyde Fortune has returned to her seemingly quiet hometown of Crystal Haven, Michigan. In spite of the psychic powers of its residents, there’s no telling what trouble is brewing in this burg…
The highlight of this year’s fall festival in Crystal Haven is a bonfire with a witch’s cauldron resting over it. Clyde’s best friend, Diana, leads a ritual to divine the future, but it seems no one foresees that one of their own will drop dead—or that Diana will be a prime suspect.
Clyde already has her hands full with her eccentric family, runaway nephew, and burgeoning secret romance with a hunky homicide detective. But after another coven member is attacked, Clyde suspects there’s a witch hunt afoot and focuses her psychic and sleuthing skills to clear her friend’s name and catch a killer.

  1. Be Careful What You Witch For looks so cute! Also the Luanne Rice appeals to me. Of course I am waiting for the release of Deborah Harkness’ next book. I’m curious as to what you think of The Troop. It sounds really creepy! Have a great week.

  2. I can’t wait to hear about your experiences at BEA etc.

    I also got Be Careful What You Witch For, The Murder at The Vicarage, and Splat the Cat. I forgot to put those last two in my post. Oh well, it was long enough as it was. 😀

  3. Be Careful What You Witch for looks fun. I can never resist a new cozy! The Murder at the Vicarage is a good one and the first book we meet Miss Marple which is always good. I’m intrigued by the Luanne Rice book. I’ve read a few of her books before but this one looks a little different – at least from the cover art. All the book conferences sound amazing but exhausting! Enjoy your backyard reading oasis. Sounds heavenly!

  4. I agree–BEA was fabulous again this year. I never make it to BEA Blogger though, because I’m always at an all-day Library Journal event, followed by a dinner co-hosted by AAP and Library Reads.

    I’ve shared my haul from the AAP dinner in my blog post today. Like you, it’s going to take me some time to share everything from this past week.

  5. Hey you survived BEA! 🙂 Sounds like a lotta fun. Book of Life looks good, and so does audio of The Time Machine. I bet that would be especially good on audio…

  6. Can’t wait to hear more about BEA and see what goodies you got! We’re on a similar wavelength this week; I got the Dawn Eastman book for review, too (probably for the same tour!), as well as one of the SYNC books (I picked up the bottom two last week) and Love and Freedom. Enjoy all your new books and get some rest!
