Review: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Counselor

So this book review is a little late, my Grandma has been in hospital the last few days, so this wasn’t a priority. She’s home now though and looking much better! I really really liked this book, although it was a bit weirder than the other 4. In this one, Lily finally decides to go for counselling to overcome the problems from her past. Then, a woman turns up dead in her counselor’s office, and it turns out that her counselor...

Now Reading: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Counselor

So here we are on the last book in the series, it seems like it’s come far too soon! I hate it when I read a series that ends without tying up all the loose ends, like Harris’ Harper Connelly series that I read last year. What I really want from this book is for it to end in a good place. I know there won’t be any more books in the series as this one was written over 10 years ago, so it would be nice to know what will...

Review: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Trollop

Woohoo! Finally caught up on my reading challenge, so I’m back on track now! This was book 5 out of 100, it’s been hard so far, so I don’t know if I’ll be able to keep it up all year! In my last post, I speculated that I thought this book would be about Becca Whitley or Deedra Dean. Turns out I was kind of right on both counts. Deedra was found dead by Lily right at the start of the book. All the way through the book, we...

Now Reading: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Trollop

Onto book 4 out of 5 in the Lily Bard series, which I have to say, I’m really enjoying! Having already read 3 books out of the series, it feels like I’m getting to know everyone within the town of Shakespeare, so from reading the title of the book, I guessed that it would either be Becca Whitley or Deedra Dean that would be the victim. Having read the back of the book, I was disappointed to find out that it was Deedra, as she seemed...

Review: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Christmas

Thankfully (and as I had hoped), this book was not actually about Christmas, just set at Christmas, which meant I enjoyed it more than I thought. This book saw Lily go back to her hometown for her sister’s wedding, which meant she had to confront all the people from her past, who she had not seen since she left town when everyone stopped being able to look her in the eye. Two people were killed early on in the book, but the main storyline...

Now Reading: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Christmas

I’m now onto book 3 of 5 of the Lily Bard series that my parents bought me for Christmas. I’m loving this series so far, so I’m guessing that this one is going to be just as good. The only thing I hope out of this book is that it’s not too Christmassy. It seems like a long time since Christmas now, so I don’t want to read anything too festive. But on reading the back of the book, it looks like it might just be set...

Review: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Champion

Finally finished this book, it took me longer than I thought it would so unfortunately I’m still behind on my reading challenge. I enjoyed this book even more than the first in the series. After having being introduced to the characters in the last book, you can feel more involved in the story. This major storyline of this book was to do with racial tensions and a gang of white supremacists out to cause trouble. I know this book was...

Now Reading: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Champion

This is book 2 of the Lily Bard series by Charlaine Harris. The last one was awesome, and left it at a bit of a cliff-hanger in Lily’s life, so I’m excited to see where that goes in this book. After being introduced to the inhabitants of the town of Shakespeare in the first book, I’m quite interested to see who will be killed in this book. From the pictures on the front of the book, I’m guessing it will be someone from...

Review: Charlaine Harris – Shakespeare’s Landlord

As I expected, I read this book very quickly (especially compared to my last book). And also as expected, it was great! I already knew that I loved Charlaine Harris and this book was awesome just like the others. This one was slightly different to the other two sets that I have read, as it had nothing to do with the supernatural, just a straight-up murder mystery. I think this set is one of her earlier sets, written in the mid 90s. As with all...
