Hello again and welcome to another week of reading.
I was bored, so I went through the newsletters Thursday morning and picked up a bunch of free ebooks. Plus, an acquaintance I trust mentioned a new release SF, so I snagged that, too. Four books leftover from last month and 5 new books. Yay! I also still have most of those Agatha Christie's to read, a couple Phyllis Whitneys and... well, scads of other hardcopy books to read.
31) Ready to Were (Shift Happens #1) by Robyn Peterman (4/13/19) - Paranormal Romance* - 5 stars. New to me, but not underappreciated. Picked up off the Freebooksy newsletter.
Review: "Loads of fun."
30) The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie (4/13/19) - Mystery - 5 stars. First time I read it, but Agatha Christie is definitely not new to me or underappreciated. Purchased at St. Vinny's for 50c.
Christie's first book... I can't believe I'd never read this one
before. Interesting to see how it all began. Definitely shows why she's
the Grand Dame of Mystery."
4/19/19 - Paranormal Mystery. It read more like a travelogue or the beginning of a bad romance where the author is trying to show how much research she did on the location without giving a hint of the plot. I gave up waiting for something to happen and moved on. Too much to read to waste time on this one. Luckily, it was a freebie I found on Ereader News Today.
4/18/19 - Romantic Suspense. I wanted to like this, really I did, but I found myself making excuses to not read it rather than being excited to pick it up again. At about a third of the way through, I finally decided to read something that did excite me. I only paid 50c for it at the thrift store and that goes to a good cause, I guess. It'll go to St. Vinny's on my next trip.
I'm currently reading the fifth book in a cozy mystery series I hadn't read yet. :shrug: I didn't notice the book was #5 until after I downloaded it and I thought I'd give it a whirl. So far, so good.
What did you read last week? Any keepers? Anything you couldn't bring yourself to waste time on?
