Hello there. One would think I'd be reading more during this chaos crap, but I'm not. Of course, I'm also trying to write a book right now. Anyway, here goes this week's wrap-up...
I was down to my last couple unread ebooks, so I figured I'd better get cracking and see what blew my skirt up yesterday morning. I found three new books through FB posts - a cozy mystery, a future thriller, and an urban fantasy. I also found a new ebook in one of my morning newsletters - a suspense. The thrift stores are still not open for business, but St. Vinny's has opened to receive donations, so I'm hoping the store won't be far behind. I'm jones'n for some newly acquired, old and dusty paperbacks.
41) Tender Trap by Lisa Jackson (5/9/20) - Romance - 5 stars. Underappreciated, but probably because it was published before Goodreads existed. And I've read Lisa Jackson before, but her suspense, not her romance. Picked up for 25c at one of the thrift stores.
little romance with plenty of twists and a dash of mystery. I love
finding these old romances at the thrift store, especially when they're
by well-known authors in other genres. It's fun to see where they
started. This didn't disappoint."
5/10/20 - Future Thriller - free. The writing was very good and the first chapter had me interested. Then the second chapter opened with a lead-n saying our country would never have been attacked by the Middle East and North Korea if it weren't for the President... as in it was perfectly clear which president, ya know. Oh, puleeze. Spare me. Then, as I was flipping the book all the way to the end to make it show as 100% read on my Kindle, I caught part of the author's bio. :gag: If the hippy white boy was half the liberal he pretends to be, he ought to be ashamed of himself for writing even one chapter from the POV of an old black woman. Jus' sayin'.
Currently reading... A cute little paranormal mystery. I was about halfway through before Live PD came on last night.
