Last year the author pointed out her collection of essays was available for free on Amazon I decided to add it to my collection, especially since I enjoyed her writing style in her cozy mystery series. The title and cover spoke to me and it sounded like a fun read, and Quirky Essays For Quirky People was just that. This bundle is packed with short humorous essays about quirky situations that will make you smile. They are very easy to read and perfect for whenever you feel like a light read. As always with short stories (even though I don’t read/review a lot of them), my review is different than usual. Below you can find a list of the 24 stories included in Quirky Essays For Quirky People in chronological order with a quote and short description:

July 2017 TBR

I just can’t believe it’s July already… It seems like only last week we celebrated New Years, but I guess the calendar doesn’t lie haha. I managed to read quite a lot of books in June, although I did pretty bad actually sticking to my monthly TBR. Only five out of ten this time, and the fact I feel terrible that I didn’t read the two non-ARCs I promised myself I would read. Shame on me! All these titles go straight to my July TBR though. 😉

I was hoping to make a true dent into my ARC mountain last month, but even though I read lots of ARCs last month I still have a huge pile left. So I guess it will be another month with a lot of ARCs… Although I’m determined to read at least a few titles of my ‘non-ARC titles I have on my need-to-read-ASAP‘ list this time as well as possibly a classic and/or Dutch/Spanish book.
