Hello again. Not a big banner week this week. I mean, I read a couple of good books, but I wasn't burning up the pages with new reads or anything.
Last Saturday, I snagged 5 new ebooks - YA fantasy, 2 UF, a SF, and a paranormal mystery. I still have a UF and a suspense from earlier in the month.
45) The Wild Hunt by Ron C Nieto (5/24/20) - UF?* - 4 stars. New to me but not underappreciated. Free from Freebooksy.
book. Well written. Intriguing premise. Action packed. And then it just
ended with very little really resolved. Which I found a little
irritating. If you're prepared to jump right into the next book, this
shouldn't be a problem for you, though, so enjoy."
44) The Body Lovers by Mickey Spillane (5/23/20) - Hard-boiled crime - 5 stars. The last of my unread Mickey Spillane paperbacks. I've had it for years. Rationing, doncha know.
5/29/20 - future thriller - 99c. I had a tough time deciding to DNF this one. I mean, I paid for it. Plus, it was well written and kind of thrilling and I was over 50% through it. But it had so many things that weren't original about it that it stank of a certain popular movie franchise thrown into a blender with crime noir and set to chop. You can get some great ideas from movies, but you really need to puree that shit so it's no longer recognizable in the plot of your book. In the end, I realized I couldn't give this book a good review, so I stopped reading it.
Currently reading... nothing and no clue about what's next. I DNF'd that thing yesterday and then couldn't muster the will to start something else. Maybe I'll read another paperback. Tune in again next week for the thrilling answer. ;o)
