Book Review: Four In One

I'm really behind in my book reviews. I've read five books already this year and I have only done one review. I blame this on the fact that I actually find book reviews kind of boring. Boring to write and boring to read, so I'm not feeling inspired to put it down on paper screen.

With that being said, I'm going to do some small reviews on the last couple books I have completed. If you want to read more about what Goodreads says about them, just click on the book title.

The Guardian by Dee Henderson
This was the second book in the O'Malley Series and it has a similar style to the first. There is love, murder, mystery, suspense and God all wrapped up into the pages of this book. I really enjoyed it and couldn't put it down. The author is really good at getting you completely absorbed into her stories and  makes you feel like you're living it right along with the characters. I would highly recommend these books.

The Truth Seeker by Dee Henderson
This is the third book in the O'Malley series and so far my favourite. I'm not sure why but I really liked the storyline and characters. I also think that this book had me the most stumped as to the mystery of who murdered who. Once again, the author has done an amazing job of capturing her readers attention.

Young House Love by Sherry & John Petersik
I loved this book. It isn't a story but is instead full of 243 different DIY projects that you can do in your home. They range is cost, time and simplicity and make you feel like you could attempt anything. It has inspired me in many ways of how I can fix up our house with just some simple tweaks, as well as some more DIY projects I could try. Stay tuned for some Young House Love inspired posts in the future!

The Body in the Library by Agatha Christie
This was my first Agatha Christie book that I read in English. When I was in highschool I read a couple of her books but they were all French. It took me a while to get into the story and the way of writing but about halfway through, I got really hooked. And I was completely surprised to find out who the murderer actually was!

So that is my post on my most recent reads. Sorry it was short and not as detailed as my first book review but oh well. I'm still in the process of reading my next two books, they are taking longer than the first five did. Although I am on page 170 (out of a total of 764) of Middlemarch, so I am making progress!
