Hello again, my friends. Here we are again at the end of another reading week.
I picked up three new ebooks this week - a mystery, a courtroom thriller, and a post-apocalyptic UF. Still have three ebooks left from before (fantasy, mystery, and SF suspense), so that makes 6. I looked for more, but nothing else was blowing my skirt up this week.
57) Forceful Intent (Porter #1) by RA McGee (6/21/19) - Suspense*. New to me but not exactly in the parameters I set for 'underappreciated'. Still, this book should be more appreciated than it is. Jus' sayin'. Picked this one up for free off the ENT newsletter.
that was good! I'd give it more stars if that were possible. Holy crap.
Porter totally kicks butt and gets the job done. If this is indicative
of the rest of the series, I'm in for a major treat. Woohoo!"
56) The Big Four by Agatha Christie (6/14/19) - Mystery - 5 stars. Neither new to me nor underappreciated. Got this at St. Vinny's for 50c.
No Review. I mean, when a book's got tens of thousands of ratings and over a thousand reviews, what does it need my review for? :shrug:
55) Birthright (Cog Chronicles #1) by PM Cole (6/16/19) - Steampunk Paranormal*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated. Got this for free after seeing an ad in ENT.
a fun story! Like steampunk mixed with paranormal and a twist of
mythical. So cool! I really enjoyed this. Looking forward to reading the
6/18/19 - Humor. Got this one on a whim for free off Book Gorilla. Made it about 30% of the way in. Kept waiting for some kind of plot to kick in. And then it started head-hopping, which I was okay with until it hopped into the head of a character they hadn't even introduced yet. I mean, it was quirky and I like quirky. But I also kinda like knowing where a book might be headed and with whom.
6/16/19 - Cozy Mystery. I picked this one up on a whim from the thrift store. It was one of my 6/$1 finds. Anyway, I tried it. Quickly discovered that I hate bullet-point lists in novels unless they are directly related to the story, and two in the first few pages are like reading someone else's grocery lists. Yeah, I've heard some people say that they love their favorite authors so much they'd read their grocery lists, but this was a new-to-me author. And we never really mean we'd read their grocery lists anyway. PS. I also hate when it feels like the author is trying to show me how hipster they are.
Currently reading... A historical mystery set in China. I've always enjoyed Pearl Buck and I'm fond of Amy Tan's work, so this seemed like a good fit and something different to read. So far, so good.
What things did you read this week? Anything good?
