THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Name a book you thought you wouldn’t like, but ended up loving.

I’ll answer the Random Question this week 🙂


Recently I didn’t think I would like the book Cupcakes, Trinkets, & Other Deadly Magic.

Book Summary from Goodreads-17972522

If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept — was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it.

That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.

It sounds cute enough but, I had also been reading a few cozy mysteries before this and… I wasn’t too impressed with the last one.

I finally buckled down and read it only to be really into it! Did it have flaws? Yes. But, I was willing to overlook them for the most part because I wanted to know what was going on and what would happen.


Have you read Cupcakes, Trinkets, & Other Deadly Magic? Did you like it?
What about a book you liked that you didn’t think you would?
