April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

22. The Love Potion Murders in the Museum of Man by Alfred Alcorn

LibraryThing Early Reviewers



Title: The Love Potion Murders in the Museum of Man
Author: Alfred Alcorn
Copyright: 2009

Format: ARC from publisher through LTER program
Rating: 2/5 stars
Finished: 4-1-09

I received The Love Potion Murders in the Museum of Man from LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program. I finished it awhile ago, and have been trying to decide how to write about it. I won't generally read other reviews before I write my own, but I had to double check some of the other reviews on LT to make sure I wasn't the only person who had trouble with the book. I had quite the love/hate relationship with this book. When the story was moving, I found it witty and the mystery had some level of uniqueness to it, but when the book was slow, it was agonizingly slow, to the point where on more than one occasion I had to drag myself through it and convince myself not to put it down for good. However, I can say that I might have to see if I can come across the first book in the series some time, but only if there is absolutely nothing on Mt. TBR that catches my interest first.

That sucks when on one hand you like it but the other you dont. Hope you moved on to something way more exciting.
