Friday Night Reading

Due to my son not going to sleep overly quickly I didn’t have a lot of reading time this evening and that which I did have I decided to focus on finishing Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa De La Cruz because we plan on going to the library tomorrow! I am pleased to report that I did manage to finish it and have also drafted a review. I have also managed to get a couple of chapters of Daisy and the Dazzling Dachshunds by Janey Clarke read. I had been hoping to finish reading it and drafting a review for that too, but I think I was being a bit over ambitious!

Overall I enjoyed Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe. There was nothing wow about it, but it was an acceptable retelling!

Even though I only read a couple of chapters of Daisy and the Dazzling Dachshunds that was enough for a ghost to appear and give a warning to the main character Daisy. I am intrigued to see where that goes!

I hope that you have had a good Friday. Tomorrow on the blog it’s Stacking the Shelves, All Over Instagram and what my weekend reading plans are!

Friday 56 – Daisy and the Dazzling Dachshunds by Janey Clarke

Welcome to Friday 56! Hosted by Freda’s Voice, you turn to page 56 or 56% in any book or reading device and pick a sentence that grabs you.

This week I have decided to choose my Blog Tour book Daisy and the Dazzling Dachshunds by Janey Clarke for my Friday 56:

“The pups and their mum had been hidden from view high on the hill. Obviously, Alice was leaving. She was running away and taking the dogs with her. Why? Why now? What had prompted this sudden flight? Did it have anything to do with Davies? Or was it completely unconnected with him and the puppy farm?”

I think that this demontrates what the main character is like in terms of her thinking and it is also a good way of making sure that the reader is keeping up with what is going on. There are a lot of different names and characters floating around, so for me this is quite a handy way of making sure that I have remembered everything that is going on!

Book Description:

“The discovery of a murdered woman with a rescued dog and her puppies on Bodmin Moor, hurtles Daisy, a shy retired librarian and her oddball friends, into another dangerous, yet comical escapade.

Daisy is on a mission to find the murdered woman’s killer, linking events to the puppy farm, and is suddenly thrust into a world of explosions, shootings and kidnappings!

Furthermore, family secrets come to light and Daisy discovers an unexpected revelation that will change her life forever.

This newfound knowledge is difficult for Daisy to cope with and somewhat hinders the situation that befalls herself and her friends. And if that isn’t enough, the return of her ex-husband poses even more problems.

Daisy enlists the help of Cleo her cat, and Flora her puppy, both rescue animals, in her search for the puppy farm. However, the question remains, even with all the help she has, can Daisy manage to outwit the villains and save herself and the puppies from harm?”

Wednesday Night Reading/The Night After The Heatwave

It has still been hot today, but not as hot as previous days, so for that I am grateful. I actually managed to get out for a walk earlier this morning.

This evening has also been cooler with a nice air flow through the open window, plus I had a decent amount of reading time. I spent it furiously trying to make decent headway on my Blog Tour book, Daisy and the Dazzling Dachshunds by Janey Clarke (Blog Tour on 26 July), and trying to make a dent in my library book Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe by Melissa De La Cruz.

There is a lot of detail in Daisy and the Dazzling Dachshunds and just when you wonder where it is going something exciting happens. In just a couple of chapters a cottage was blown up and the group of characters were almost veered off the road and over a cliff to certain death!

Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe is more sedate with relationship questions and social mishaps.

Overall an enjoyable evening and I feel like I have accomplished something.

I hope that you have had a good Wednesday. Tomorrow I am on the Blog Tour for the wonderful book, Last Time We Met by Emily Houghton, plus I have part 2 of my Moon landing post and Time Travel Thursday.
