Hello again! Time for the weekly wrap-up of my reading and for you to chime in with what you've been reading.
Early in the week, I found a couple more ebooks to read - a romance and a political thriller. Wednesday, I got notification that the third book in an indie mystery series I love just released, so I scooped that up Then I hit the thrift store and scored on paperbacks - 10 for $5. The big deals out of that were a Vince Flynn I've been looking for, an Agatha Christie I don't have, and the last James Herriott. Then yesterday, I hit another thrift store and got 8 more paperbacks for $1 - including 4 Christies I didn't already own. SQUEE! Plus, I saw a neat freebie SF advertised on FB, so I snagged that, too. Loads of books to read for me! YAY!
103) The Witness Tree by Seth Pevey (11/21/19) - Noir Mystery*#3 - 5 stars. The series isn't new to me, but since this one was a new release, it's definitely underappreciated. Mine was the first review at Amazon and at Goodreads.
Review: "I snagged this as soon as I heard it was released, set aside the book I
was reading, and dove right in. I inhaled it, it was that awesome. Mr.
Pevey knocks another one out of the park. The twists, the turns, the
surprises... and through it all, my old friends Felix and Melancon
(because they do feel like old friends now) hunting down a mystery and
battling the bad guys while battling their own demons. And they win, of
course, because I couldn't possibly enjoy a book where the good guys
don't win. This is the good stuff, folks.
The worst thing about
these books is waiting for the next one. And since this is a new
release, now I have to wait for him to write a whole other book, get it
edited, and get it published. :heavy sigh:"
11/18/19 - YA
SF. Free. I'd read other books by this author and loved them. I
suspect, this time, I was too old to connect with the characters. I
wanted to shake the MC and tell her to get over herself. Time to move
11/17/19 - political thriller - picked up from the
thrift store for 25c. Meh. Someone had recommended the author to me,
so I got this book. She said she hadn't read that one, so I'm not
faulting her for it. It was probably a fine read. I just couldn't get
into it and I don't have time to push through something that's not
Currently reading... Separation of Powers by Vince Flynn. I don't usually put the titles for books I'm currently reading because I never know if I'm going to finish it. This one? Oh, yeah, I'm gonna finish it. It's Vince Flynn. Duh.
What has been on your reading plate this week? Anything yummy?
