Friday Linkups - Italian Iced















It's Friday linkup time!  I'm linking up with the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer, Book Beginnings of Fridays hosted by Rose City Reader, and the Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice

This Week's Book Blogger Hop Question:
If you were stranded on a desert island which ONE book could you not live without?

My Answer:
I literally just wrote a post about books I'd take to a desert island and I had it down to 10 books and 3 rather large series and felt like I had achieved the impossible.  Now you want me to take that down to one???  I'm going to say a short story collection by Agatha Christie - I'm thinking Three Blind Mice and Other Stories.  Her short stories are so great and have such a range of subjects that I think that would keep me entertained for awhile.

This week's book is Italian Iced by Kylie Logan.  Logan is a cozy author I've been wanting to read for awhile and this series focusing on different world cuisines really intrigues me.  I have the first two but haven't read them yet but so far it's working pretty well to be jumping in with the 3rd!

The Beginning:
The sound didn't make any sense.

My Thoughts: 
The narrator is waking up when she's thinking this and I can really identify with that thought!

The 56:
I wrapped my arms around myself.  "I don't think I like the thought of people talking about me.  And I'm sure I don't like the thought of some creepy guy asking where I live and one of our neighbors telling him."

My Thoughts:
I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like either of those things either!

So what do you think?  Keep reading?  What one book would you take to a desert island?

  2. I've been reading lots of cozies lately but haven't come across this author yet. It sounds like a good story. This week I am spotlighting Shelved Under Murder by Victoria Gilbert. Happy reading!

  3. Went over to your "Ten Books for a Desert Island" post because I really liked your Agatha Christie choice. Originally I would have picked an old favorite like that, but after seeing you went for books you want to read, now I'm not sure. Since I liked both the Laurie King Books and the Mrs. Pollifax series, maybe I'd go with the Deborah Crombie series. Thanks for the recommendations.

  11. Oh dear, that sounds bad. A neighbor giving our information to a creepy guy. My quotes from The Virgin Suicides

  12. A short story collection would be a good way to get a nice mix of tales.
