I don’t know what happened…

But it all started with me reading a hilarious new mystery book series I discovered…

 … and by the end:

The Book: A Curious Beginning, by Deanna Raybourn
Quick Overview: Set in the late 1800s, Victoria is a scientist (shocking, I know — A lady who studies science around all those Victorian ideologies!) with a specialty as a Lepidopterist (the study of butterflies!). There is a love interest. There is a murder. Hilarity ensues. 

Writing Style: Laugh out loud funny! I was getting looks from my husband all weekend because of random giggling/ LMAO (while shoveling in chocolate cake)

Accompanying Food of Choice: Homemade chocolate cake with a whipped peanut butter buttercream frosting (oh, yes! I know you’re feeling me here) 

… there may have also been copious amounts of wine 😁 (… that’s why it’s sold in a box, right?) 

It seems like Friday night came upon me… I opened my book, and then BAM! The sun was setting on my Sunday, I had given Amazon even more of my monies, and all the cake was gone. 

I regret nothing. 

(On a side note: do you ever have weekends like this? Where you start reading and it seems like two days just disappear? … and maybe a chocolate cake 😁)

I wish you a weekend filled with books and confectionary delights! Hugs and happy reading, my friends,

Olivia 😙
