Good thing I schedule these ahead of time, because with the holiday, my days are totally messed up this week.
I'm sitting at 5 unread ebooks right now - Historical mystery, MG fantasy, UF, suspense, mystery. No new ebooks this week. And no new hardcopies either.
63) Tentacles and Teeth by Ariele Sieling (7/4/19) - YA Post-apocalyptic F*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated. Found this as a freebie through ENT.
I'm not quite sure how to
categorize this book - YA paranormal dystopian? Post apocalyptic
fantasy? New adult adventure with monsters? :shrug: Whatever you call
it, it's good stuff. The author has certainly created a new world out of
our old one, filled with unimaginable horrors ready to kill any human
at a moment's notice. She's also created a group of wonderful characters
and a main character I could really get behind. After the end of the
book, she said the next one's coming soon. I'll be keeping an eye out
62) The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett (7/1/19) - Literature - 5 stars. Not new and not underappreciated. Picked it up for 50c at the thrift store.
I vaguely remember reading some of this to the Kid, but I think she finished reading it on her own because I didn't remember the end.
61) Hostile Witness by Rebecca Forster (6/30/19) - Courtroom Thriller* - 5 stars. New to me, but not underappreciated. Got this as a freebie after getting an Amazon marketing email for the second book in the series.
This is an awesome and thrilling story, fill of twists and turns, so
you never quite know if the ground your standing on is solid - kind of
like the heroine isn't quite sure. But she's got a job to do and she
does it. I was on the edge of my seat, reading like a banshee to see who
would win, who was actually the killer, and whether Josie would make it
through with her life intact. I was thinking along the lines of her
proverbial life, not her actual life, but I should've known better. They
didn't call it a thriller for nothing. What a wild ride!"
7/2/19 - Mystery. Took a chance because it sounded really interesting and I paid 99c for this one. :shrug: Started with a weird prologue, but I powered through. Then I got to the actual book and the dialogue was like nails on a chalkboard. The characters kept calling each other 'babe' and they weren't talking like real people talk. At least, I hope real people haven't started talking to each other that way. It's been a while since I heard other couples talk to each other.
Currently reading... I grabbed a suspense paperback I'd picked up late last year. Started reading it last night, so I didn't get that far in. So far, so good, but I've never read this author before, so we'll see how it goes.
How did your reading week go?
