I love to read and I love scrapbooking so they're the perfect match for me. I like the ones that are just a regular story (like the Sweethaven series ) or scrapbooking mysteries. I've been reading those since Keepsake Crimes back in 2003.

It's pretty cool to see how many scrapbooking-related novels are out there now. If you love them like I do, I just posted a heads up on my blog about a new one coming out soon. I also have a link to a current scrappy mystery that's only 99 cents through the end of June.

Anyone else love to read scrapbook novels? What have been your favorites so far?

Oh my, there's something like scrapbooking novels?!!! As I love both, too, I have to check them out!

And scrapbooking mysteries sounds just as fantastic!

Thanks for bringing this up!

I love them!
Some are better than others, but I think they are great.
I have the first Sweethaven book here waiting to be read.
Have also read series by Joanna Campbell Slan. Her series is based in my hometown.
Laura Child's series is set in New Orleans and those are ok. I have read a lot of them.
I just heard about a series by Mollie Cox Bryan on a blog and can't remember where. But I have her first book in my cart at Amazon.

I like the Kiki Lowenstein series. I tried the Laura Child scrapbooking mysteries but didn't like the characters. I prefer her tea shop mysteries.

I read the Keepsake Crimes by Laura Childs. I love them. The perfect way to unwind before bedtime.

I have a few on my Kindle. They tend to be fairly easy reads so they are perfect for those times when I just want to relax and unwind.

I didn't know these existed either! Can you find them at local bookstores like booksamillion?
Just thought I might look for one before I take a trip...

Well you learn something new every day! Never heard of such a thing, but I'll check them out. I read Chicken Soup for the Scrapbookers Soul and loved it, but I love all of the Chicken Soup books.

That's what my blog entry is about (linked in the OP)

Book 1 is only 99 cents for Kindle right now. Book 2 is done, due out in September (I get an early copy and will give a review!), and she's writing Book 3 now. Woot!

I love to read and to scrap, so finding out through this thread that there were scrapbooking novels made me very happy! Thanks for the enabling, peas, I'm off to see what titles I can get for my e-reader!

I've read a few of the Laura Childs books - I also love her Tea-shop ones. I just looked on Amazon.de, and was able to get 'Cropped to Death' for my kindle. At 0.89 eurocents, why not?

I like Laura C. and I've just started reading Mollies and Joanna series. I love them all and I'm a big mystery buff, so I'll read any of them. A great way to unwind.

I read one of the Sweethaven books and enjoyed it. It was a nice change of pace from my normal horror theme.

I've read some of this series - light reads but cute.

Sisters Ink

Also read this book which references scrapbooking but more about baking Friendship Bread Friendship Bread

Her second book I haven't read but definitely more about scrapbooking.
Avalon Ladies Scrapbooking Society

I've never read the Sweethaven books - will have to try them this summer.
