What I Read: September 2016

It's that time again!

1. The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Cafe by Mary Simses- I was drawn into this book by the cover. It just looks so homey and cute! Also it inspired me to make muffins as you saw in this post. They were delicious. The book itself? Equally delicious. An easy and fun read that I would recommend to anyone looking for something sweet and light. Also I wish I could open a bakery some days, but I think the point is to sell things and not just eat all the sweets that you like!


2. Murder Has Nine Lives by Laura Levine- I love this series. Sure it is predictable and silly but that is my favorite thing about it. Just pure hilarious fun with Jaine and her cat Prozac. I also love the silly antics of her father and mother via email. It never ceases to amuse me. I read this in one night so you know it is a quick read and as stated fairly predictable in the overall "murder mystery" department but still very funny.


3. Elite by Mercedes Lackey- I have been waiting for this sequel since last year and the day it came out I downloaded it and began listening immediately. It took two days to finish and I loved every single minute of it. Much faster paced than Hunter this book had me on edge and guessing. I love the introduction of the new characters on the Elite team and I really enjoyed that there was much less world building and fashion talk in this one. I would HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone that loves fantasy and post apocalyptic worlds. Mercedes Lackey has been a favorite author of mine for years and this new series is giving me life. I cannot wait for the third book to come out now! 


I didn't get as much reading done this month as I would have liked but what I managed to read was awesome so I am calling it a win!

Life According to Steph


  1. Blueberry Bakeshop is not a typical read for me but I really liked it. I'm glad you did as well!

  2. Yesterday I had the blueberry jam that my neighbors brought back from Canada for us. It made me think of this book. I should just read it already.

  3. adding all of these to my list. i could definitely NOT open a bakery, but i could eat everything in one if someone else opened it haha. the cat mystery book sounds cute.

  4. I love books that involve food because I love to eat, but they always make me hungry when I'm reading them. The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop and Cafe sounds so cute and like something that I'd love so I'm going to check it out. I've also never heard of Hunter, but I love a good YA series, especially one that deals with fantasy and mythology. I'll check that one out too!

  5. The Bake shop book sounds really sweet. I also have a friend who just opened up a cafe and I think she would love it.

  6. I'm guessing Murder Has Nine Lives is a mystery cozy? Well, I love cats and good mystery cozy so I'm definitely adding it to my TBR. Mysteries are my favorite genre but too many in a row can get a bit dark so a cozy is nice cleanser. I'm also adding Elite to my TBR as well.

  7. What Jana said. The cover for the blueberry book is so cute.
