Surprisingly, I didn't get a whole lot of reading done this week. Especially considering I didn't really do much of anything else either. Total toad week.
I did pick up one new book on a whim. A freebie international thriller - set in Paris and written by a French author who's trying to drum up readers here in the states. Sounded interesting, so I'm giving it a whirl. Probably next week. We'll see.
Anyway, here goes...
85) Purrfect Murder (Hazel Hart #1) by Louise Lynn (11/23/18) - Cozy Mystery - 5 stars. New to me, but not necessarily underappreciated. This was the book I picked up with my magic $1 Amazon credit.
Review: " Cute and fun. Just what I needed."
84) The Affair of the Mutilated Mink by James Anderson (11/17/18) - Mystery - 5 stars. New to me, but not underappreciated. Picked up during the thrift store sale 6/$1.
twisty-turny. A little far-fetched, but a fun ride all the way through.
Could've knocked me over with a toothpick when the whodunit was
DNF - 11/18/18 - Western ebook. I picked this one up on sale for 99c. The premise sounded good and the 'look inside' was okay - all backstory in the beginning, but easy to skim past without missing anything crucial. And I was looking for something different, so why not a Western that needed some lovin'. I could be its first review... Umm... No. Wow. The editing... Actually, I don't think this went through an editor's hands. So many errors. Allusive when he meant elusive. Federalized when he was referring to the Mexican Federales. Revenge instead of avenge. All in the first few percents. If he did have an editor, they need to be slapped and he deserves a refund. There was other stuff that turned me off, too, so I gave up trying.
DNF - 11/23/18 - Romance paperback. Got this from a thrift store a while back. I was struggling with this early on, but I wanted to see what happened. By about halfway, I decided I'd had enough. Obnoxious hero, snotty heroine. Interesting little side plots, but not enough to overcome my dislike of the MCs.
I started the international thriller last night. Fingers crossed.
What was on your reading list last week? Anything good? Anything new?
