Saturday Reading Wrap-up - 2/9/19

Not much reading this week.  I'm writing again, so reading tends to fall away.

I did download two new books - an underappreciated 2nd book mystery (where I've already read the first) and a romantic suspense set in India.

And here goes the short list:

 12) Dial P for Poison by Zara Keane (2/8/19) - Cozy Mystery* - 5 stars.  New to me but not underappreciated.  I knew that going in, but it sounded like it would be fun so I snatched it up anyway.  Got this on a freebie day.
Review: "Super cute and so much fun!"

11) Agent of Enchantment (Dark Fae FBI #1) by CN Crawford (2/7/19) - Paranormal Suspense* - 5 stars.  New to me, but not underappreciated.  Got this for 99c back in December.
Review: "Oooo, so good! An awesome suspense wrapped upped in a gritty urban fantasy with an undercurrent of potential romance skimming along beneath. Three great tastes that taste great together. ;o) With an end that didn't feel so much a cliffhanger as an awesome hook that makes me want to read more. Gimme gimme gimme."

No DNFs.


Haven't decided what to read next.  My Kindle needed a recharge last night and then I needed to write and THEN, of course, Live PD was on.  Maybe I'll start that zombie apocalypse.  Haven't done one of those in a while.  Or maybe I'll find a paperback to read.

Something occurred to me the other day so I thought I'd put in a short disclaimer.  I don't get books because people have sent them to me and want me to review them.  No one has asked yet, but I'd rather they didn't.  I choose books that interest me, and I never know on any given day what kinds of books that will be.  So, asking me to review a book would be a waste of time.  I might be interested, I might not.  I might be interested now, but by the time I get around to looking for a book to read, I might not be into that genre.  I might not be interested now, but something might spark me later.  I never know ahead of time.  :shrug:

Also, I could've sworn some of these new-to-me books were underappreciated when I downloaded them, but since I didn't get to them that quick, they have since become more appreciated.  Good for them.  I'll keep sprinkling my fairy dust and reading new things.


I hope you all had a good reading week last week.  Here's to a good week ahead!


  1. I snagged your Fae FBI read on KU and now I'm thinking I might snag the audio since it's only $7.49, essentially half-price, since I got the KU Kindle version. I have other stuff to read/listen to first so yeah...

    I finished off the series by the new-to-me but over-appreciated author. Ended up buying the last book on Kindle because I couldn't borrow it anywhere. It was sort of worth the money. I think her stuff is a little over-priced but hey, more power to her because she can obviously command that price.

    After a bit of dithering, I headed into a re-listen of an old favorite series of series. Four books in the first that then lead into the second. The last book in the second just released. I'll be sad to say goodbye to these characters and I hope Kristen will at least tease us with novellas and stuff. It's the Dream Man and Chaos series by Kristen Ashley.

    Still reading contest books. They aren't so wonderful. Makes me sad. On that note, back to listening while I curse at my Excel sheets. Long story. Boring.

    Have a great weekend and yay for writing!

    1. Ooo, I hope you enjoy it! I was thinking about you when I was reading it. Y

      ay for new-to-you, but boo for overappreciated. I hate that. Get all geared up to read something awesome because of all the reviews and then piffle. What a let down.

      Yay for old favorites! I'm sorry you have to say goodbye, though. =o(

      You are awesome for reading contest books. I couldn't do it. Sorry they're not better, though. :hugs:

      Thanks! You, too! And here's to some good writing for you.
