With the edits finished for Unequal, I opened the throttle on reading. Then I got back to writing my next book, so not quite as many books as if I'd only been reading, but still...
Downloaded a few new books - a cute paranormal mystery, a Western, and a historical mystery set in Australia. Didn't buy any additional hardcopies.
Here's my reading week...
83) The Reckoning by Kerry Watts (11/16/18) - Suspense*# - 4 stars - New to me and underappreciated. Bought at full price to cash in on that awesome $1 credit. $2.99
Review: "I think this was a really exceptional story, worthy of 5 stars. The
characters were sympathetic, the suspense was gripping, I was hooked
throughout. The only problem was, and I really hate to even mention it,
the punctuation. In a lot of places, I had to go back and re-read
passages to figure out what the author was trying to say. Oh, it was
worth the effort. At no point did those flaws make me want to set the
book aside. After a while, my brain started putting the punctuation in
for me, so I had fewer stumbles. But if you're a stickler, you're going
to want to skip this book. And that would be a shame because you'd miss
out on a great story."
82) Peril at End House by Agatha Christie (11/13/18) - Mystery - 5 stars. Definitely not new to me and not at all underappreciated. Picked this one up at the thrift store with other books - 6/$1.
Review: "Good one! I hadn't read this Christie before, but it'll definitely rank in my favorite Poirot's from now on."
81) Discarded (Dumpstermancer #1) by Michael J. Allen (11/11/18) - UF*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated. Bought at full price to cash in on that awesome $1 credit. $3.99.
book. A little weird, but awesome. Definitely not your every day urban
fantasy. Smart and interesting with a different sort of premise. Took a
little bit to get into it, but once I was sucked in, I inhaled it. Of
course, there was a cliffhanger... Not a fan of those. But the rest of
the book made up for that one little irritation. Now I'll have to go
find the next book and wishlist it for my next buying day."
Additional Note: Apparently, book 2 doesn't exist yet. Argh.
80) The Golden Unicorn by Phyllis A. Whitney (11/10/18) - Romantic Suspense - 5 stars. Definitely not new to me or underappreciated. Thrift store find. 3/$1
Review: "As good as I remembered it."
Right now, I'm reading a mystery set in 1930s England. It's one of the paperbacks I picked up at the thrift store sale. The unknown to me author. So far, so good.
What did your reading week look like? Anything good? Pick up anything new?
