Saturday Reading Wrap-up - 2/2/19

Happy Groundhog Day.  It's a minor holiday here at Sanderson, Inc. LLC because reasons.

Let's see what went on in my reading world last week...

Despite telling myself I wasn't going to download anymore books until I read the ones I have, Sunday I picked up a zombie apocalypse novel that was on sale.  In my defense, it sounds REALLY interesting.  Plus, it meets my 'new to me, underappreciated' thing and the few reviews it has are really good.  We'll see.  There are currently 7 unread new novels on my Kindle.

Now, let's dive into what I did read...

9) Unofficial Detective by Kathryn Wells (1/28/19) - Magical Mystery*# - 5 stars.  New to me and pretty underappreciated.  Picked this up during a free thing.
Review: "So much fun! Perfect? No. But the story's so good, whatever flaws it has fell away as I got sucked into the magic of it all. I can't wait to read more about Thordric and the rest of the characters."

No DNFs.


The rest of the week I've been slowly working my way through a British mystery set after WWI.  I'd hoped to finish it last night, but that didn't happen.  I was at like 82% when I closed it to go to bed.  Maybe I'll finish it today.

What about you?  Read anything good?

  1. I finished off the series I'd been reading from the library--an MC(?) romance where all the bikers are involved in LE/Fire/Med/EMT stuffs. Some were good, some were covered in crazysauce. Now that it's a new month, I can grab 3 more books from a different series by the same author from Hoopla, which is a book borrowing site that I get through my library card. Works out pretty good. Sometimes, the books I want aren't in the "main" library or are on hold. I get 6 downloads a month with Hoopla--books, audio books, movies, etc. I just use it for the audio books. FYI, that author is Lani Lynn Vale.

    I just finished a relisten to Christine Feehan's JUDGEMENT ROAD in prep to listening to the new release in the Torpedo Ink series, VENGEANCE ROAD. There's also major crazysauce in these books but so far, she hasn't jumped the shark like she did in her Dark Carpathian novels. They are very dark, sexy, and violent.

    Neither of those authors are underappreciated, though Vale was NTM at the time I first read one of her books.
