Twitterature: What I've Read So Far in 2014

I've been off to a great reading start to 2014; it's amazing how once I read one good book I immediately want to pick up another. Here's hoping the good streak continues well into the year! Here are some tweet-style reviews (140 characters or less) of what I've been reading.

The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris by Jenny Colgan. Freak accident sends girl to Paris to work in chocolate shop. Inevitably, she meets a handsome Frenchman. #loveinParis #delicieux

The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon. Creepy! Small town Vermont. Modern day: mother goes missing, perhaps supernaturally? 1908: daughter killed, mother goes insane(ish).

The Mangle Street Murders by M.R.C. Kasasian. Victorian detective & goddaughter form unlikely crime-solving duo as they investigate gory stabbings. #Sherlockian

Where Monsters Dwell by Jorgen Brekke. Medieval book bound in human skin connected to modern (gruesome) murders in Norway and Virginia. Sounds disturbing, but was quite good.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling. Ah Harry Potter, you never get old. Loving this one as much the 3rd time around as the 1st. #Hagridmakesmelaugh #imtotallyHermione

Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield. So far, lots of dull mill talk. Not sure that I really care? But hanging in a while longer, in hopes that Setterfield weaves magic again. 

That's what I've been reading! How about you?  
Got a tweet-style review to share?

Linking up with Twitterature at Modern Mrs. Darcy!
