At the beginning of this pandemic, we were little more than three women whom all lived together and enjoyed the outdoors and activities that required actually getting dressed/putting on make-up/making any type of effort to seem presentable. However, since then, our days are now filled with moving from one room to the next within the house and calling that our morning commute. We can complain that the line for one bathroom in the morning constitutes our heavy traffic days (though, I doubt our local news would consider that note worthy).

On one particularly boring day, in a fit of cleaning, we came across a Barnes and Noble membership card. In the excitement of getting that 10% off (after all, the rule is, you better buy something on sale even if you have no use for it and you did not really want it in the first place) we all compiled long lists of books (the actual price tag is not important as we want to keep that secret in case our credit card companies see this blog). Even after finding out BnN does not honor the 10% through online purchases, we were already too deep into the purchase to go back (things were already in the cart!).

Many, many, MANY books later, we thought of creating this blog to compile our personal notes, keep track of what we read and what we thought of each book, and create an open discussion among the three of us – and any others that may wish to join – as we review the various books and genres that each other reads.

So, if you are not one of the three of us and have actually made it to this point in the description, thank you. And sorry, I only know how boring my day staying at home is, I can’t imagine how boring it could be for you if you felt compelled to read this higgy barble. But, thank you anyway!

Who We Are

The True-Crime reader aficionado. Scared of her own shadow and leery of every person she meets, yet insists on continually ready exclusively true-crime story. As Yzma would say “yeah… go figure”


Is that romance in the air or summer pollen that is making you tear up? At this point it is hard to tell. But, if you need fantastic insight into the best easy breezy rom-com genre, Etta is your girl!


Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it someone who just picks books because she likes the cover and has no rhyme or reason to her picks? That’s Mary A for ya! From thriller to coming of age stories all the way to YA, Mary A. reads them all!
