Hello again! It was an okay week for reading. Nothing really bonza or anything, but okay.
I have two unread ebooks left from earlier in the month. I guess it's time to start scanning the newsletters for free books again. No new hardcopies, but I have tons to keep me busy if I can't find any ebooks to wow me.
20) Love & Order by Elsie Davis (2/23/20) - Romance*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated. Picked this one up for free off the Robin Reads newsletter.
sweet little romance that hits all the right notes - kids, a dog,
cookies... with a hot hero and a lovable heroine. It's all good stuff
Note: Listed on Amazon in the Christian Romance category, but religion didn't come into this one at all, so I'm not sure how they hit that list. :shrug:
19) The Twisted Thing by Mickey Spillane (2/22/20) - Hard-boiled Crime - 5 stars. Mickey Spillane is my crack. I've had this one for years, so no clue what I paid for it or where I got it. I've got the unread Spillane on rationing, so I have a chance at not running out before I find more old paperbacks of his.
No review. It's Mickey. You either get him or you don't and nothing I say will change anyone's minds.
2/26/20 - suspense - free. The mystery was fairly interesting and there was a good amount of suspense, but when the author threw yet another plot twist at me, after a host of others that all seemed unrelated to the central plot, I'd had enough. Maybe they'll tie it all together in the last 40%, but I couldn't see how without a huge info-dump or a series of major cliffhangers. Kind of irritated it took me until 60% in to realize I'd been slapped around enough on this one.
2/22/20 - YA fantasy - free. Started out okay, but it tripped one of my pet peeves. Close book, move on.
Currently reading... Lord God Made Them All - the last of the James Herriot books. I'll be sad when it's over.
