Hello. Welcome to the Saturday Reading Wrap-up. If you've been here before, you know how this goes. If you're new, this is where I wrap-up all the book stuffs from the week before. (For a complete list of all the books I've read this year, go here.)
It wasn't the best reading week with the DNFs (they always give me a sad), but hey, any week I finish at least one good book is a good week and this week I finished two.
This past week, I picked up a slew of new ebooks - 2 mysteries, fantasy, suspense, contemporary fantasy, urban fantasy, thriller. Woohoo. And I'm caught up with last month's ebooks. Also woohoo. Then yesterday, I was in town with time to waste, so I stopped by the thrift store. Picked up 4 paperbacks and 2 hardcovers - two westerns, a mystery, two biographies, and a suspense. So much to read... YAY!
13) Blood in the Sand by Kelly Clayton (2/6/20) - Mystery*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated as far as reviews go. Picked up for free after seeing a friend recommend it on FB.
Review: "Neat murder mystery with plenty of twists and turns with a little romance for added seasoning. Quite an enjoyable read."
12) The Christmas Cookie Shop by Ginny Baird (2/4/20) - Romance* - 5 stars. New to me and could probably use more reviews, but not totally underappreciated. Free off the ENT newsletter.
Review: "Such a cute little holiday romance! I loved it."
2/5/20 - paranormal romance - free. I liked the premise and the writing wasn't bad, but I started to dislike the heroine about two paragraphs into meeting her and I wanted the very likeable hero to run the hell away from her.
2/3/20 - suspense - Picked up during the thrift store's end of year 8/$1 sale. I seriously wanted to like this book because I like the author, but try as I might, I couldn't. Stopped 135 pages in, which shows you how much I tried. But life's too short to force myself to finish books I'm not enjoying.
2/1/20 - mystery - 25c at the thrift store. Meh. It just wasn't doing it for me. I totally wasn't feeling the mystery. At all.
Currently reading... a paperback western from 1966 I picked up at the thrift store yesterday. I needed something to read while I was waiting for my shot appt and I was between reading stuff at home, so I grabbed one of the books I'd just purchased and started reading in the doctor's office.
