Hello again. Welcome to my Saturday Reading Wrap-up, where I talk about the books I've read or tried to read in the past week and what new things I've bought for the days ahead.
Not a bad week this week with some fun reads and only one dud.
I picked up 3 new ebooks this week - a YA adventure, a mystery, and a romantic suspense (already read that last one). No new hardcopies this week, for which my shelves thank me.
18) Death on the Danube by Jennifer Alderson (2/20/20) - Mystery*# - 4 stars. New to me and underappreciated. Got for free from the Reading Deals newsletter.
Review: "A fun little mystery with loads of interesting information about Budapest, if you're into travel and stuff."
Note: It was a bit too much travel stuff for me, so I flipped past it, but I think many readers would enjoy the details. And it wasn't as if the writer was throwing details in because she didn't want to waste research (we've all read those books). It was just more info than I was looking for at that time in a mystery.
17) Fighting for Elena by Silver James (2/19/20) - Romantic Suspense* - 5 stars. Not new to me and a new release so not much appreciation yet, but it'll get there. Paid full price - $3.99.
What an amazing story. I loved Pops and Elena - separately and
together. And of course, I love Joy. And it was awesome having
characters from Silver's other series swoop in to save the day. Cuz the
Wolves are like that. =o)"
16) Never Date a Siren by Byrd Nash (2/15/20) - Paranormal*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated. Picked up for free off the Book Barbarian newsletter.
Review: "Fun! I loved the world. I loved the premise. I loved the characters. I'm so glad I picked this book up."
2/16/20 - biography. 50c hardcover at the thrift store. I thought it would be interesting, but the writing was poor and the story didn't flow well. Plus, it sounded a bit preachy. I like to think if the subject had still been alive, he wouldn't have wanted his biography to come off that way. =o(
Currently reading... A plucked one of my unread Mickey Spillane 'Mike Hammer' paperbacks off the shelf. Love me some Mike Hammer.
What was on your reading list this week? Anything good? Got anything you're looking forward to?
