2022 Popsugar Reading Challenge - Update #7

    

Happy Thursday everyone and welcome to my seventh 2022 Popsugar Reading Challenge update with mini  reviews!  In July, I completed 2 books for a total of 40 of 50 books for the 2022 Popsugar Reading Challenge.  Keep reading to see my thoughts on the books I read in July:


 ❋ 
Clue is one of my favorite movies and while I'm glad that I read these YA murder mysteries inspired by the board game, my expectations were way too high. They're solid read but they don't quite have what the classic movie has. Plus, it probably doesn't help to imagine the actors from the movie as their equivalent characters here. Yeah, that's very weird. I do like the little references to that movie though because those are very cool to see worked into In the Study with the Wrench (A Clue Mystery #2) by Diana Peterfreund.

My review is also on Goodreads.


 ❋  
In the Kingdom of Ice: The Grand and Terrible Polar Voyage of the USS Jeanette by Hampton Sides is a fascinating history that is incredibly readable.  Going into it I wasn't already familiar with this expedition or the author, but I'm glad I took a chance on this.  Wild is a perfect way to describe these true events. I'm going to have to look into more about this voyage and this author in the future.

My review is also on Goodreads.

  3. I read the first Clue spinoff "In the Hall with the Knife" and though it was fine. I didn't dislike it but never really sought out the rest of the series.
