Hello again. It was a pretty good reading week here, even if I did have a couple DNFs.
I also picked up a few new ebooks, including the fourth book in a YA paranormal series I'd loved but was too cheap to buy the 4th book. When I saw it was free, I was all like 'woohoo and squee'. The other new ebooks were a future thriller, a paranormal, and a paranormal mystery. Still no new hardcopies. :heavy sigh: Thank goodness for ebooks and my large collection of hardcopies.
39) The Judas Cypher by Greg Dragon (4/24/20) - Hard-boiled Crime/Dystopian*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated. Free off the Book Adrenaline newsletter.
packed throwback to the old hard-boiled crime novels but set in the
later part of this century. A little crime, a little dystopian, a lot
38) Walking Sam by Deanna Lynn Sletten (4/22/20) - Romance*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated as far as reviews go. Free off the Robin Reads newsletter.
Nice little romance, sweet and fun with a little sad and a good happy-ever-after."
37) Blood Money by Chris Underwood (4/18/20) - Urban Fantasy*# - 5 stars. New to me and underappreciated as far as reviews go. Free off the Reading Deals newsletter.
That was super fun. I loved the premise and the characters and the
story. I especially loved Hider. More of this series will definitely be
going on my 'to buy' list."
36) The Mummy (or Ramses the Damned) by Anne Rice (4/18/20) - Paranormal Romance - 5 stars. I've owned this for years and I've read it bunches of times before, just not recently.
Review: "It's been years since I read this, and yep, I still think it's the best thing Rice ever wrote."
Note: I'm not saying that lightly. I read some of her vampire books* and thoroughly enjoyed them, but this was way better. Kind of a chicken soup book for me, it's that good.
4/20/20 - Western - Meh. Once again, not everything needs to be described in exacting detail. I got bored slogging through the descriptions of his horse, it's tack, and the cattle car they were standing in, and moved on.
4/18/20 - Mystery. I should've known better than to snag a 5th book in a previously unread series. Maybe if I'd read the others, this one wouldn't have been so irritating.
Currently reading... I finished that last book right before bed last night, so I haven't had time to pick up another read.
What was on your reading list last week?
*Queen of the Damned was the best of those, in my opinion. Still, second to this one.
