Well, I don't really have that much to talk about this week. The majority of my week was spent working on Sleeping Ugly to get it out for publication. Which was supposed to be today, but probably won't be because I still have a boatload to do and not enough time to do it in. (*See below.)
Anyway, enough about that. On to the books... err, book...
55) Prince of Poison by J. Douglas (8/13/18) - Fantasy*# - 4 stars. New to me and underappreciated.
book was really enthralling and totally gripping, despite a few editing
flaws. It has an interesting premise and I was totally into the
characters. Then I got to the end. And now I'm torn between getting the
next book to find out if what I thought happened really happened and
totally not wanting to read the next book because it actually did
happen. As it stands now, I'm setting this series aside.
giving this book 5-stars because it was gripping and interesting and
stays in my thoughts even now. But I'm also giving it 3 stars because of
the end. So, 5 plus 3 divided by 2 equals 4.
As always, your
mileage may vary. It's entirely possible all of this gets resolved in
subsequent volumes. I'm just not ready to face the next book yet."
And that's it. I started reading Soul Breaker (City of Crows #1) by Clara Coulson, and I got 13% of the way through, but I haven't touched it since Monday. Once I get my own book uploaded for purchase, I'll be able to finish this one. The beginning of it was pretty good, so I'm looking forward to finishing it.
What about you? Read anything good last week? What are you looking forward to reading this week?
*I did it! I got Sleeping Ugly up for sale last night.
