I did not buy or download any new books this week.
68) Mum's the Word for Murder by Brett Halliday (9/20/18) - Crime Novel - 5 stars. Not new to me, but probably underappreciated. I've had this old (1953) paperback on the shelves forever.
Review: "Fun old crime novel. The premise was interesting - the story being told from a novelist's point of view while he tags along with the actual detective. I enjoyed the twists and turns. I half-expected one person to be behind the killings and then somewhere along the way, I got an idea of what might be happening. Sure enough, my theory was right. And it was all wrapped up nicely, if a bit abruptly."
67) Outback Summer by Nancy John (9/15/18) - Romance - 4 stars. New to me and with really low reviews, but that's to be expected from an early '80s romance (before online reviewing was created)
Review: "Typical early eighties romance novel. Definitely written before the PC culture invaded, which is kind of refreshing every now and then."
DNF 9/20/18 - Paranormal Mystery? I picked this up on a whim. And it was pretty good. Well, except for the profusion of typos. Seriously, people, proofread! Anyway, I didn't put it down because of the typos. I just realized I didn't like the MC and I didn't see myself getting to a point where I would like her. I think I made it about
DNF 9/16/18 - Memoir. I've owned this one forever and I always mean to read it. Well, I started it and I just wasn't in a place to read about a family moving to Alaska, so I stopped about ten pages in. I'm keeping it. I'll read it eventually.
I haven't started a new book yet. We'll see what the week holds.
