Scrapbooking Fiction

Last Christmas, I asked Santa for a copy of Scrapbook of Secrets (Public Library)by Mollie Cox Bryan and got it.

I rarely read fiction. In fact, I am in the middle of the Harry Potter series, so any other fiction has mostly been set aside. I also rarely read fiction during the semester. I like nonfiction better for practical reason. I can set down nonfiction and pick it back up after a few months. I can read several nonfiction books at one time without losing my place. This is my long-winded way of saying that I didn’t pick up Scrapbook of Secrets to read until the beginning of December (semester was still in session, but we had a snow day).

I enjoyed this book! It is unlike what I usually read, but more in line with what I used to read (when I regularly read fiction). It reminded me of the Lois Duncan books I used to read as a teenager. Okay, so they aren’t quite the same as Duncan’s but that’s the closest I can get in my limited fiction-reading repertoire.

I was really interested in reading this book because I am so curious about this genre of fiction where a hobby is part of the plot point. I had no idea this type of fiction even existed. Scrapbooking as a plot point definitely works in this book. If you like fiction with a little murder and mystery (and scrapbooking), check out Scrapbook of Secrets.

Fortunately for me, at some point in the past year, I won a signed copy of book two in the series: Scrapped (Public Library). I read it as soon as I finished Scrapbook of Secrets. Again, it was equally good. I enjoy following the characters on their new adventures. And now, I await the third book in the series, which is set to be released in February.

Are there any scrapbook-related fiction books I should add to my reading list?

    I recently read “The Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society” which was my first foray into this genre. It was an ok read, but I did enjoy reading about my hobby as “part of the plot”. it is not a mystery, more of a female fiction type of book.

  • Thanks for sharing. I’ve added it to my wishlist.
