Books & Chocolate

I love to read just about anything, as long as it's fiction. I read for me - that means I read what I want, when I want. My reviews tend to mostly be based on how I'm able to personally connect with the story/characters. They are not intended to influence someone to read, or not read, a particular book. I always encourage people to take a chance and make up your own mind.


Oh, and I love chocolate.

The Thirteenth Tale

The Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield

I love my book club. We've been gathering around the same dining room table for over 10 years. But I need to give them a bit of sass. I've been trying to talk them into reading The Thirteenth Tale for YEARS. For some reason, it never makes the list. I'll admit, the synopsis doesn't really grab me so maybe that's the issue. I finally gave up waiting for them and decided to read it on my own.


I'm so glad I made this book a priority. This book was able to keep me guessing until the end. And once all was revealed, the other 'questionable' things I had about this book fell right into place and it was awesome. I'd love to go back and re-read it now that I know the ending. I'm wondering how much I'd catch a second time through when reading through a different lens.
