Not a lot going on in the reading this week. I was busy making progress on the editing.
I had 6 unread new ebooks left on my Kindle - two SF, a suspense, an UF, a chick-lit suspense*, and a romance. One of the SF I paid full price for, the rest were free. Then I picked up 3 more freebies - historical suspense, SF with a F twist, and UF.
34) My Friend Flicka by Mary O'Hara (4/23/19) - MG Coming of Age - 5 stars. New to me, but not underappreciated. Picked this up in hardcover for $1 at the thrift store to add to my old-book collection.
a must-read for just about any kid. And pretty much a must-read for
adults, too. Positive story, positive ending - although I was a little
afraid Ms. O'Hara was going to let me down at several points along the
way. She didn't, though, and whew. I would've hated this book if she had
let me down. I only wish I'd read this decades ago."
33) Blues, Butterflies, and Murder by LouLou Harrington (4/20/19) - Cozy Mystery*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated as far as reviews go. (Less than 50 on Amazon and Goodreads.) Got this as a freebie off the ENT newsletter.
this up on a whim not paying attention to the fact that it was a #5 and
I hadn't read the first 4. But I read it anyway. There were a few
things I probably could've benefited from by reading the other books,
but all in all, this stood alone quite well. And it made me want to go
back and read the other books when I have the time and money. Loads of
fun, but with heart. Good mystery. Great characters."
No DNFs this week.
I'm currently reading a SF I picked up last month. So far, so good. We'll see.
What have you been reading lately?
*Don't ask me about chick-lit suspense. That's how it was marketed.
