Saturday Reading Wrap-up - 9/13/18

Slow week in the reading realm.  I did pick up a couple new books, though.  A mystery and an SF from the Ereader News Today newsletter.  The mystery I read on the 17th. 

75) Amazon Decoded: A Marketing Guide to the Kindle Store by David Gaughran (10/9/18) - NF* - 5 stars - Not new to me, but slightly underappreciated.
Review: "As others have said, you can only get this if you subscribe to Mr. Gaughran's list, but if you're a self-published author, why wouldn't you subscribe? As with his other books on self-publishing, this is extremely informative and incredibly useful. I can't say I'm the greatest at implementing his strategies, but that's on me. And since I've read this and his other books, there's always hope. It's not a 'I'll read this and be an overnight bestseller' book. You have to actually do the work, which I suck at. For the self-published go-getter, though, this is a must read."

73) An Occupied Grave by AG Barnett (10/7/18) - Mystery* - 5 stars.  New to me, but not underappreciated.  It didn't totally meet the criteria, but I wanted to treat myself, so I picked this one up for free through ENT.
Review: " Fun! I love a good British mystery. This was kind of like watching 'Endeavour on Masterpiece', but set today and with its own special story. Great characters, awesome plot, interesting twists. Can't wait to see what's next for Brock and Poole."

I'm currently reading an Alastair MacLean - When Eight Bells Toll.  Apparently it was made into a movie.  I never saw it, so it's all good.  It's the last unread MacLean in my collection, which gives me a sad. 

I have an eARC of a mystery I need to read this coming week and get reviewed.  (It's due out on the 18th.)  Not sure when I'll get to that SF up there or the action adventure that's been waiting for a couple weeks now.  

What did you read this past week?  Anything worth talking about?

  1. I read a couple of Lauren Dane books in her Diablo Lake series. I enjoyed their humor and decided to give her Cascadia Wolves series a try. The library had all of them in audio so it was a win. She's new to me but not under appreciated. The CW series borders on erotic, but the stories are interesting. I'm on the last one in the series. Not sure where I'll turn next. There's a book coming the 30th that's the next in a series. I may re-listen to the series--one that obviously isn't new to me nor underappreciated as the author has been on the NYT list. Just not sure what will drop in next.
