Hello again. Typical reading week here - a couple books finished (one of which was pretty long - the other I finished in a couple hours) and another started. Let's see how it shook out...
No new books this week. I'm down to 6 unread ebooks, though, so I'm making progress and should start downloading books again soon.
29) Lights, Camera, Action by Heather Silvio (4/10/19) - Paranormal Mystery/Romance*# - 4 stars. New to me and underappreciated. Found it on the Kindle/Book Club for 99c.
Review: "Fun little paranormal mystery/romance."
28) Timothy Williams Demon Hunter by Iestyn Long (4/8/19) - MG UF*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated. Picked it up off the 'Free Kindle Books' FB page.
thoroughly enjoyable story of the fight between good and evil, with a
bit of tongue and cheek to cut the seriousness of the issue. I did go
into this thinking it would be a Middle Grade novel - the main character
is 13 - but partway in, I realized that perhaps this is a bit too
gritty and gruesome for the age range. There were bits that had me
cringing at the thought middle grade kids might be reading this without
some kind of parental guidance. Personally, I loved the historical
parts, but again, not necessarily for kids. You'll have to decide for
yourself. Definitely loads to talk about with your kids if you read it
first and then pass it on to them."
Note: After I posted this review, the author added a disclaimer to his marketing efforts about this being PG-13. Totally not my intention. I just wanted readers to walk into it with their eyes open, so they don't get blindsided and end up leaving this wonderful book bad reviews.
4/11/19 - Romantic Suspense. This was a hardcopy I picked up at St. Vinny's for 50c of an older story by an author I usually like, but I didn't make it past the beginning of chapter 3. The characters were annoying me. And I realize it was just me. Which is why I don't give titles and names in the DNF section.
Currently reading: This week, I organized all my Agatha Christie paperbacks by MC. Then I sat down to read the very first book she'd ever published. Nothing quite like going back to the old masters. =o)
What have you been reading? Anything good?
