Time Travel Thursday

It’s Time Travel Thursday! This is where I take a look back at what I was reading this time last year (or the year before or the year before that…) and compare it to what I am reading now.

This day in 2021 I was reading:

Book Review – Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé

Fast Forward To Today:

If It Looks Like A Duck by Frank Malley

Book Description From Amazon:

“A dead body. A suicide note. A man called Crime. Enter a stubborn reporter who’s certain not all’s what it seems.

“If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, well …”

When the body of landlord Roger Mansell is found in the River Lex, and a note uncovered on his boat, police say suicide.

Jaz Sharkey, a tenacious reporter on a failing newspaper, thinks murder. Her suspicions fence a bunch of regulars from the charming village pub. Identical twins, the psychotic ex of Jaz’s bold sidekick, Trish Parker, and a man called Crime.

As Jaz and Trish look for clues and editor Dan Armitage fights to keep his paper afloat, things turn sinister.

Quirky and funny, but with all the pace, twists, and adventure of a mystery. Join the hunt.”

American Royals by Katharine McGee (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description From Goodreads:

What if America had a royal family?

When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne.

As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America’s first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling.

Nobody cares about the spare except when she’s breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn’t care much about anything, either . . . except the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her.

And then there’s Samantha’s twin, Prince Jefferson. If he’d been born a generation earlier, he would have stood first in line for the throne, but the new laws of succession make him third. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart.”

Comparison:

I am still reading mysteries, but just different settings and age range! Last year it was a YA mystery whereas this year it is general mysteries plus a romance.
