Sometimes, despite going through a lot of books I didn't find worth finishing, I discover one that makes me remember why I pick up unknown to me authors. So I'll keep doing it.
Last weekend, I picked up 6 new ebooks - mystery, romance, 2 paranormal mysteries, political thriller, and thriller.
95) Billy Blacksmith: The Demonslayer by Ben Ireland (10/10/19) - MG UF*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated. Free off the Book Barbarian newsletter.
really enjoyed this. Good characters, good premise, good ending. I
think any kid would like reading this and plenty of adults would, too.
The names got a little confusing at one point - one character has the
same last name as another character's first name - but other than having
to re-read a few passages, it didn't harm the story."
94) Sea Siege by Andre Norton (10/8/19) - SF/Post Apocalyptic - 4 stars. Again, not either new nor underappreciated. I've had this one for ages, but never read it before.
93) Sad Cypress by Agatha Christire (10/6/19) - Mystery - 5 stars. Umm, Agatha Christie, so not new or underappreciated. Thrift store find - 25c.
92) Corruption of Identity by Jonathan Small (10/5/19) - Paranormal Suspense?*# - 5 stars. New to me and way underappreciated, but I think I understand why. It's a hard enough to classify book that some readers might not be willing to give it a chance. Their loss, but unfortunately a loss for the author, too. Which would suck. Free off Freebooksy.
Review: "Not exactly sure what to call this book, except a phenomenally good read with an awesome ending."
Note: Seriously. Phenomenally good. I wasn't sure it would be, but it was.
10/5/19 - Paranormal Mystery. Free. Gah. I was really enjoying this until the whole 'humans are inherently stupid and evil lesser beings who are ruining the world, but I need your help and you're the only one who can save my child'. If you're so awesome and superior and magical, save your kid your own damn self. Actually, I would've kept reading if the MC had said that, but he was all lame and ineffectual, so I'm not sure how he could've saved anyone. Blerg.
Currently reading... a political thriller by Stephen Coonts. Oddly enough, I've never read Coonts before. So far, so good.
